3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
An engaging bouquet develops grains of paradise, flower petals, orange pith and coriander seeds atop a honeyed maltiness and minty hop bitterness. The finish might not be as intricate and delicate as the aroma, but this remains a pleasant example of Belgian breweriana.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the hazy golden.
-Carbonation is expansive and the mouthfeel intrinsically Belgian.
-Citrusy fruitiness adds drinkability.
-Coriander contributes some milk character.

God blond coloured beer with some average carbonation and a small white head. Sweet malty, herby light alcoholic aroma. Full palate. Finish is full bitter, stronger alcoholic with a light burning throut feel. Sweeter herby ending.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Very clear, orange-golden appearance. Thick, creamy white foam, which quickly collapses & gives rise to a thin layer. Aroma containing resin, floral touches and some alcohol. Quite strong sweetness, almond & ripe apricot flavor. I prefer triples that are more crispy & less sweet...Lightly sour, medium bitterness, nice hops. Medium body, thin feel, average carbonation. Quite long finish.
