4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasty and bitter beer with a nice appearance and fair alcohol percentage. Got it in various locations around Belgium. Mostly the western regions sell it in the supermarket. Comes is 25cl and 75cl bottles.
After pouring the beer, a fair amount of foams appears and stays for quite some time. A bit like Duvel but not so much.
Taste: herbs, hops ofcourse and bitter, much CO2 but functional as the tastes fly around.
All over a very tasty beer with enough alcohol to enjoy!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£1.99):
Another very nice Belgian offering here, this one was quite bitter but as I suspected not quite as bitter as some of the American style beers I’ve reviewed on here. There was a lot of spice and background fruits to this one that balanced the beer out well and the tart flavours started strong but settled down was the beer had time to open up a little. Overall a decent beer and one well worth picking up.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a yellow color with a grass and spruce aroma. Taste is a light malt with a plant aftertaste on the palate. No distinct bitterness but an airy malt tinge after the swallow. The alcohol content is recognizable but the beer is still smooth.
