3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I may be rating this unfairly high as I am unsure whether the ’mixed fermentation’ is deliberate or not. Strikes the wrong chord by claiming to be made by Verstraete "Brewery" when the work is actually done at Deca brewery. Light-blond, stronger ale with earthy backtastes similar to those found in those lambic-ale mixes that have started to pepper the Belgian scene. Either that or a strongish blond with a benign infection.

Bottle at Monks, Brussels. Hazy whitish straw color, small white head. Lots of black currant on the nose, also citrus, fruit candy and a slight funkiness. Light sweetness that quickly goes away to leave a tart dryness. A bit candylike with all the black currant, but still refreshing.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a murky light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is strong wheat and bananas. The flavor is wheat, corn, oranges, bananas and pepper. The hops add quite a bit of spiciness to the overall flavor but don’t add much bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden blond coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a medium white head. Sweet, slightly hoppy hinted aroma with a short sugary alcoholic tint. Medium to full, light creamy palate. Finish is sweet, malty and light alcholic hinted. Rather short ended, misses some clear biterness and depth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden color with an instantly dissipating white head. Aroma of fruits, earth, old beer and nail-polish remover. Flavor is earthy, dry, fruity, somewhat malty, slightly bitter and a bit funky. Very much dried old beer in the finish. Strange and troublesome, yet bizarre enough to remain slightly appealing. I’m not exactly sure what to think of it.
