3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can shared in W2 - many thanks to Daniel. Pours hazy gold with a slender, white head. The nose has notes of butter, phenol, pale bread. Light sweet flavor with some wheat, dough, ripening lemon, sourdough bread, hay. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more doughy aspect, lemon peel, wheat flakes, cereal, faint banana. Pretty simplistic, but not terrible.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can share at Leighton’s, picked up at The Oriental Supermarket. Hazy orange, opaque, small foamy white head. Aroma is a little buttery, wheat, celery. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is wheaty, thin, light buttery, touch of corn. Meh. Kind of thin and buttery. Below average.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
nuts, grass, citrus, banana, honey, golden, cloudy, lightly sour, medium body, thin feel. Beautifully nuanced aroma; pervasive honey, with notes of lemon, banana bread, nuts, on and on. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t live up to the nose. Medium bodied, a bit sour, flat yeast. Thin, as though it has been watered down.

Hmm. Cloudy amber, absolutely no head. Aroma is savoury, odd. Flavours of peach and vegemite. Slightly unpleasant. Not to be bought again.

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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
