3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Donkergeel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en fruitig, licht zoet met iets van bessen. Helaas iets te waterig om een echt goede score te krijgen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted in Ghent a few months ago but apparently forgot to enter it. Hazy golden beer under a creamy, off-white, lacing head; aroma of apple, grass, some peach, white bread; soft estery onset, smooth and quite crisp, gooseberry and peach fruitiness, soft bready pale malt sweetishness, lean body, medium dry finish with some herbal hop bitterishness. Very quaffable but another of those stereotypical Belgian blonde ales needlessly restyled as a saison for commercial reasons nowadays.

Bottle 330ml (from BBF)
Slightly hazy golden color, good white head, lots of lace. Aroma has white pepper and grass, light peachy notes. Light to medium-bodied. Very watery front. Mango sauce, grass and late bitterness. Kind of refreshing but same time a bit lame 6% beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 6%. Weak fruity and acidic aroma. Clear golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour has a note of burnt plastic to begin with. Underneath that unpleasant note is a decent maltiness. Finishes with an astringent but pleasant enough bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy but stable white head. Clear aroma of malt, with fruity, farty and estery notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of bread and yeast and malty touches. Hints of spice. Bitter and rough aftertaste. Quite bitter and non-fruity for the style but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle, served in tulip. Orange colour with white head. Both aroma and taste are lemon, candy, and of course worth to mention the american hoppy touch. Dry on the palate with moderate sweetness. Medium body, good carbonation. Nice blend, tastes very Belgian but at the same time reminds a lot to an American beer.
