I barely remember this beer malty and notes of fresh fruits and spices. Will have to have again some day. Page 352 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 300 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught at Beer Weekend, Brussels. If I hadn’t actually seen it poured would have thought I was given a shandy. Pale yellow with lots of sediment. No head. Citrus in both taste and smell. Bubbly. Was a fitting first beer but not quite as good as the Piraat shandy I made once.

I had no expactations for this, thought this would be a Leffe clone, but this was really interesting. Big firm head, gold colour. Spicy and fruity aroma, spicy and malty palate with a balanced finished. Underrated imo

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beer Mania. Smells dank and skronky. Cloudy gold with generous living white head. Coriander and sugar evident, but smells alive and refreshing. A little bitter, mettalic, slightly sweet, weird balance, dry, plenty of coriander. Not bad, not too excellently distinctive either. A little chewy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden. Lasting white head. Yeasty, citric hop aroma. Really tasty blond with just huge bunches of sticky jellied citrus fruit, orange, tangerine and lemon amongst them. Good body, excellent malts, dryish finish with more jellied fruit flavour. This is rather good. Drank it watching Lyon vs Milan European Cup Quarter Final
