2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl Bottle: BBD 29 May 2014. Poured into my huge ’Judas’ glass on 5 Aug 2013 during a Belgian Tasting Evening with myself!
Looked fine in the glass: bright golden body with a large head (you can really pour fast into a Judas glass) of snow white bubbles.
Light nose of yeasts, hop notes and freshly cut grass.
The taste was also light, delicate might be a better word. Hints of flavours rather than ’in your face’ powerful features. Slight citrus feel to the piece, with a mini grain undertone. I found it pleasant enough but it was completely overshadowed by the other Belgian brews I had around it.
In short: a refreshing but weak Belgian offering, start with this, don’t have it mid-session.

Golden looks, lasting small head. Rich herbal and yeast aroma, belgian to be exact. taste isn’t very expressive though, just medium bitter. Not very dry or developed, which takes away from the good (aromatic) start. (Tilburg Beer Festival)
