2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beauty of a pour from bottle into Duvel glass. Shaving foam head with tiny, densely packed bubbles. Golden-bronze beer that is crystal-translucent. Light funk and warmth show themselves in the aroma, with honey around the edges. Perhaps a bit too sweet/sticky, and a long(er than desired) finish. Strangely, in both flavor and aroma, this has some of the qualities of stale lager, but I can’t really define it more than that. This is fine, but maybe a bit overbitter and boozy.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown 33cl bottle, best before 30th Sep 2010, reviewed during one of my ’random beer’ tasting evenings in mid-Sep 2010, some two weeks before its best before date.
Poured into a stemmed ’Hoegaarden Grand Cru’ tulip: A huge foaming snow white head formed, which produced very little lacing as the beer sank. Golden Syrup in colour, but with a large amount of floaters, because the beer was so highly carbonated it gushed out of the bottle bringing all the sediment.
No really strong aromas to report, some yeast esters and hints of citrus fruits if I sniffed for long enough.
The flavours again were not strong, pretty non-discriptive to be honest.
Not overly impressed with anything about this beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy golden coloured brew with an adequate sweetbitter taste and some hints of fruits. I think the Affligem version is better.
