3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Aroma is banana followed by grape. Clear yellow, "lager like" appearance. A nice toasty maltiness, some spicyness and some banana in the taste. The finish is medium long with the same character as the taste, however with more banana. It is a dry beer with lively carbonation.
It is an ok beer, but for my taste the aroma should be a lot more hoppy and less banana. In the taste the banana levels are ok, but it should be more bitter

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Satisfactory Belgian. Flavor has a smooth and saison taste. Yeast gives some tangyness, some spiciness, but I disagree that this is "assertively" hopped per the description. Not much hoppiness at all in fact. Highly carbonated as expected from a "true" Belgian. Not bad, but there are many better. B-
