2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stubby bottle at home. Poured into a tulip. ABV 5.8%
Very deep orange colour on thebody, clear, with a big enough white head sitting on top. Good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of grains, nuts, light malts.
Sweet malty taste, again very nutty, hay, bread.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, seems a bit high at moments.
Overall okay, nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 16/07/2015. Hazy dark orange, solid white head. Nose is thick BE yeast, darker honey, caramel, sugar, thick malty with herbs, decent start. Tastes of sweet mellow honey, nuts, touch herbal, brown sugar, herbs, warming, touch boozy, doesn’t come entirely together but definitely nicer than the score would indicate on RB. Not on par with my introduction to the brewery “Alpaïde”.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, consumed at home on Wednesday 12th February 2014. Pours hazy dark gold with slim white head. Clean slightly spritzy nose with a little spice, a little bland is my first impression. It’s fine, a tiny bit thin and lacking maybe, but absolutely fine. Sweetish typically Belgian in many respects but very safe. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
