UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 26/VI/2012 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: X/14 (2012-659) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the beer!

Note: had this beer many times before, and always assumed I had already rated it. Silly me! :p Little cloudy blond beer, huge white creamy head, stable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: pretty floral, herbal, bit grassy, yeast touch. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: ripe summer fruits, bit sweet, candi sugar, bitter hops, citrus. Aftertaste: grassy hops, herbal, bit spicy, some oranges, sugary.

Tasted Blind at a tasting party in Gent

A - Half finger white head. SRM of 4. Light gold

S - wheat and grass. Corn and figs. Very light dry smell.

T - Once again. Too sweet. Very dry champagne taste. Wheat and pears. Apples? Getting slight hint of egg white

M - 100% carbonation. Medium body. Lingering saison and wheat

O - 90/100. Tastes like a borderline cheap beer but it’s tasty and drinkable. Pretty okay smell and decent taste.

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2012
Een goudgeel bier met mooi schuim, wat hogere alcoholen, banaansmaak en een smaakvol bitter lichtelijk op de achtergrond. Mooi bier uit West-Vlaanderen, aan de brouwerij Deca gekocht door vriend Hugo, en samen genoten in de zon. Kopte lekker binnen.

BlackHaddock (6235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle, best before June 2012, poured into an ’Augustijn’ badged chalice in June 2011. The second beer of an ’odd-ball beer tasting evening’. The beer is a dull golden colour, slight haze showing. Thin white covering for a head. Very little in the way of smells, semi-sweet summer garden hints, but no real aroma to talk about. This is a sweet fruity beer, with a yeasty front that struggles to hide the 8.0%ABV alcohol content this beer packs. The overall feeling is fine, in fact very pleasant, the alcohol sits well within the strength and depth of the brew. I’m a fan of the sweeter beers and this is my sort of brew: the beer is well balanced, a little too sweet for some maybe, but in my opinion this is good stuff.
