2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Valley Farm Market. Very light amber color. Has almost a pinkish hue. Aroma is grainy with some breadiness. Flavor is malty with more bread. Fairly bland and watery. Pretty poor excuse for a Belgian.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap- Poured a mostly clear amber hue with a white head that had minimal retention. Aroma was a mix of fruity notes and some sweet bread notes. Flavor seemed to be light and well balanced between fruity notes and bread notes. Carbonation was minimal and the palate was mild. easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 750ml, in a Trappist glass. Pours deep, very appealing, amber, with initially frothy white head, and residual lacing. Quite fruity on the nose, but unfulfilling on the palate, and weak mouthfeel. Initial promise of bursting flavour on the tongue quickly gives way to an insipidness overall.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a copper beer with a small tanned head. Dissapointing sweet malty nose with hints of vegetables, raisins, cereals and honey. Metallic. A lot of hay in the taste which is sweet malty. Very low bitterness. Watery and slightly sour. Hints of vegetables, chestnuts and metal showing up. Not much lacework. Unpleasant metallic finish. Very poor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear amber colored beer, with a thick beige head. The aroma of caramel malts, sweet and fruity.The taste is fresh of sweet caramel with some bitter. The aftertaste is sweet. I taste this beer for the first more than 25 years ago. It was one of the first special kinds of beer. It’s still a good beer, but in my opion to sweet now.
