3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange brown color. Vanilla and citrus in the aroma. Hopbitter flavor (30 EBU: Challenger and East Kent Goldings, the label says) with vanilla and citrus. A touch of yeast. Soft and smooth flavor, but with a firm bitterness and some blackcurrant in the aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Sweet citrus aroma, yeast and herbal in the back. Amber/copper color, beige head with large bubbles in the foam, very nice lace. Light sweet, malty, smoke, spices, light sour. Not bad but a chemical herb bitterness that I disliked a lot. Dry and warming. Also the smokiness in a spicy Belgian Ale is not a good combination.
