2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 0,75 ltr (BB 09/2008).
Hazy orange color, small but steady white head, some lace. Earthy, mouldy, peppery aroma - similar to some Fantomes. Very earthy, peppery and citrusy. Long peppery aftertaste. I am not sure if so dominant earthyness is intended. This is maybe more like a saison than just "a Belgian Ale".

Bottle. A touch too thin, but a pleasant flavour. earthy citrus and ppeach/apricot fruit, some light caramelly sweetness, and typical belgian yeast and slightly candied characters.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy orange-gold beer with peach shine; good off-white head, rather stable. White candi sugar, citrus, both pale and coloured malts in the nose. Toasted taste, quite sweet, bit of caramel or even toffee, and a pinch of citrus. Retronasal even licorice and a bit of almonds. Quite light bodied, not very highly attenuated. Bit fizzy - or is that the temperature it was served at? Not very high-brow, not much going on in there, with a malt sweetness that is way too marked, making it not very finely balanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mango and a touch of vinegar in the aroma. Hopbitter flavor with mango, lemon and a touch of vanilla. The first sings of sourness are showing. Hopbitter, a bit oily aftertaste, medium to full bodied. Not too bad, could be much better.

(Bottled, 0.75l) Very hazy golden color with a largeish head. Slightly sour, buttery, cellary, Czech-pilsenery aroma. Quite ashy, smoky flavor with some grapefruit - not very complex. Medium-bodied, semi-dry, low-carbonated palate. A very decent, smoky blonde. Interesting.
