A steady pour into my teku glass produces a fat-three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright, pale amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, gold / copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of sweet grain, a touch of cotton candy, vanilla scented golden raisins, sweet melon notes, and just a candied pale malt character, which means the overall effect of the nose is on the sweet and cloying side of the spectrum. This has notes of sweet corn, DMS, and just too much graininess in general here in the nose.

Definitely sweet, with a grainy, sort of corn like sweetness that lingers on the palate for way too long. Light spicy notes provide an earthiness, some definite clove flavors, a bubble gum like flavor, and a dirty coriander water note. Very little balancing hop bitterness or flavors, in fact hop notes are not really noticeable at all here. The body has a medium fullness to it, there is quite a bit of carbonation, but for whatever reason this doesn’t help too much.

This is not so different from many a Belgian ale, but it is also the type that I really don’t enjoy; sweet, unbalanced, seemingly unrefined (to my tastes), and just cloying.

I found this identical to the guillotine I just drank. A bit more well rounded on the finish.

Ysok02 (414) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2015
Belle robe dorée. Nez qui allie des notes de fûts, presque de lambic..., de griotte, sur un fond d’épices et de houblon. Bouche tout en fruit et en rondeur, pointe d’amertume et d’acidité, longueur moyenne, finale acidulée. Un triple tout en fraîcheur.
