3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a strking medium amber. Spicy nose backed by sweet malts. Intensely fruity. Sweet maltiness carries through into flavour and palate giving a good balance with the bouqet. Low bitterness, could have used a bit more but not at all unpleasent. Could have used a bit more of that definitve Belgian clovy yeastiness for complexity. But still wonderfully drinkable as the session beer it was meant to be.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of light honey, very mild, some graininess. Taste is hoppy and fresh, quite nice. Also slighty grainy with a neutralizing papery taste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly resinous quality.

Bottle. Nice amber body with average carbonation and a good off-white bubbly/frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with woody and grassy notes. Taste lacks complexity but is well balanced. Ends with a good bitter finish. Average "everyday ale".

Tastes really bad on tap at the pub near work, yet everyone drinks it. A bit better from the bottle. There are better options.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank on draft. Beautiful reddish gold colour. Full body, satisfying taste. Not a "session beer" but more for drinking like a glass of wine, sip by sip. Not for getting drunk but for getting the taste. Excellent beer.
