2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear light brown beer with a very small beige head.
Smells malty, caramel, sadly also has some wet cardboard.
Tastes a bit sour surprisingly.
I guess this beer has lost some of its value during shipping to Belgium.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer I drank was imported into NZ in July 2014 so it’s the better part of a year old, which may explain the weak hop aroma. Sweet malt dominates with slight tartness of plums at the edges but it is possible after a few swirls to pick out a touch of orangey herbal hops. Taste is same. Thick and sweet up front thins across the palate finishes spicy, sweet and slightly metallic. Slightest touch of coffee in the after taste.
If I can find a fresher example I’m willing to have another sniff.
