330ml can. Nice - a Belgian ale from a can. Thin wispy head and a vibrant deep orange colour. Strong rum like aroma with a similar flavour, almost like it has been aged in rum barrels.

Perhaps because I can’t read Japanese I was caught out. Can’t say I have ever had a cab conditioned beer as this was murky as all hell. Sweet aroma of butterscotch and flavour profile quite sweet with honey and ester notes.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Le petit L’ouest. Pours a dirty, murky brown orange with a medium-sized head that disappears almost instantly. Light aromas of Belgian yeast with pear and peach mainly standing out and some very light funk. Taste is more pear. Body is thinner than water with zero malt noticeable. Fruit forward and sweet on the palate. Really not a good beer.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, citrus, vanilla and some hops. Taste is medium sweet. Not bad.

Bottle. The label states that it’s bottle conditioned. Murky dirty yellow with large whitish spongy head, slight vanilla like aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish taste, abrupt finish, precipitate at the bottom of the bottle. Nice try for a Belgian ale, not quite there yet.

Bottle in Bone Daddies, W8. Poured an murky orange colour, looked not too far from a hefe. A sweet, citrusy beer, slight chemically feel, tastes thin, muddled malt, yeast hmm Belgian maybe. Not great I have to say. Definitely needed some bitterness and a cleaner malt backbone to hold up what could have been an interesting citrusy fruity finish.

A muddy gold pour with a Belgian zesty vaguely farmhouse aroma. It smells much nicer than it looks. Fairly light bodied, the taste is zesty yeast spice notes, caramel & a bit of chemicalness but overall ok.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml can bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin during the ‘Taste of Autumn - Japan’ food fair promotion.
Cloudy hazy light muddy straw colour with dusty yeast sediments; Very thin head and white foams which fades in 30 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Sweet smell light malt, with light floral, peach, light dark fruit, molasses, and light Belgian yeast; Light sweet taste of thin malt with pronounced tartness, plus slight metallic, light wet cardboard, yellow fruit, strong yeast, hint of lemon and faint grass; Medium body, thick and sour palate; Taste profile is thin malt with poor yeast, sour taste messed with cardboard to nullify any redeemable Belgian Ale’s aroma or characters. Bel-yeasty but not tasty at all; Hoppiness is light fruity and faint grass nose, lemon hint and faint grass taste, and barely detectable bitterness. Paper and yeast finish; Fairly dry after taste, sour and a bit harsh to mouth.
Comments: canned Belgian Ale? I wish I didn’t try it. Decent light aroma aside, it’s all about ugly colour, bare bone malt, poor yeast, and possibly infection-induced sourness. Poor as hell. Not again!

Can. Notes from tasting session. Very yeasty aroma, some wheat included?
So-so malty flavors with a lot of yeast again. Pretty uninteresting aftertaste. Nothing special in particular

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows spicy phenols, sweet malt, doughy wheat, honey. Not bad.
Flavours are a shock, with rice, soft cardboard-like malt and industrial notes. Not pleasant.
Body feels watery.
