4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev, DougShoemaker, R and others - blankboyís bottle. Cloudy yellow with a large pillowy white head, pretty much exactly what youíd want it to look like (4+). Bang on-style aroma, blended spices, sweet fruity malt, tangy yeast, lemon zest .. even has a hint of sourness on warming. Taste follows the nose, more alcohol evident, some light graininess to the malt, a welcome black pepper and yeast bitterness brings balance to the finish. The body is a little light, but it works well - mouthfeel is lightly astringent and juicy, very smooth but not a shy and retiring blond belgian. Excellent - very easy to drink, excellent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
translucent gold with lively effervescence and a big foamy white head. soft body with a bit of creaminess and medium-high carbonation.
aroma: bright stoney minerality, citrus flower hops, herbal hop bitterness, sweet pale malt.
taste: sweet pale malt, citrus flower hops, mild hop bitterness, and a lot of wild yeast character (snow boots).
malt and hop character are great, color and texture are perfect, but the yeast character ruins it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer opens with an exciting pop of the cork reminiscent if opening a bottle of champagne. It has an aroma of apple. It has a clean not bitter flavor with notes if banana. It is very crisp but distinct in its flavor. A very good golden colored ale satisfies with its full flavor.

375 ml bottle from Campus West. Gold, pale and cloudy with a nice white head and patchy lacing. The aroma is fruity (bananas, pears, light citrus), earthy, Belgian yeast, bready malts and spices. Similar flavor, smooth, lightly bitter and crisp with some carbonation. Medium body with a clean feel and a lingering, dry, fruity finish. Easy to drink, the ABV is hidden well. Nice.

Attractive clear straw colour. A fairly unassuming Belgian ale; yeast flavor is the main attraction, but itís not overpowering. Fairly light body, very sippable.
