1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark golden body and small off white head. Sweet malts, some alcohol, some herbal note perhaps bit extremely simple. Taste is as expected sweet, simplistic malts, without any character. Even the Belgian yeast gives hardly anything more than sweetness, not even some fruitiness. Very, very poor beer. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy yellow with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit (peach?), malt, caramel and hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit with bitter notes of hops and alcohol. The presence of the latter is rather well-pronounced, even though the ABV is far from the highest one for this style. Lingering bitter finish with notes of orange peel. Drinkable but far from the best BSA I have had. Just another produce of Silly brewers...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Look: amber and hazy with an off-white medium creamy head with average retention.
Aroma: spicy fruit, tripelesque but with a strong unpleasant grainy or even corn (or yeasty?) character.
Taste: quite sweet grainy/corn, harsh phenolic bitterness.
A bad example of a belgian strong.

Blonde légèrement trouble, effervescence faible, mousse blanche tombe rapidement. Assez maltée avec un petit arôme de miel, petite amertume de pils et goût d’alcool légèrement prononcé.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle from Doorstep Brew, sampled on Janaury 18, 2013. BB 13/10/13.
Clear golden color, big off-white head. Sweet, sugary, some smoke from a phenole I guess, alcohol, also a rather unpleasant smell in the back I can’t really place but a bit like compost or garbage that just is beginning to smell. Sweet, alcohol, sugary, apricots taste. Alcohol and fruity sweet sugary aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Alcohol aftertaste.
