Somewhat stale aroma with grainy malt, some apricot and burned sugar. lavour is somewhat tart with citron. Palate is foamy and too high on CO2. Not as fruity as belgian ales usually, but otherwise quite typical belgian blonde.

BlackHaddock (4863) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
33cl Bottle: best before 05 July 2013, poured into a ’Duvel’ glass on 03 Aug 2012. Looked fine: huge white head of large bubbles, with a golden (slight haze from the sediment) body. Hoppy, resinous smell, not much else to report. The hops rule the taste as well as the aromas, more citrusy in the mouth than the nose though. I also found it to be a bit over carbonated: It was fizzy actually. Expected more from this brew: 8% ABV also too obvious in the mouthfeel, could only drink one of these in a session (I only had one bottle to taste anyway). One dimensional and uninteresting.
