3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle via Lubiere, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear golden, very small white head.
Aroma: Light apple, coriander, a little yeast/dough, a fair hit of dank, aged hops, some floral honey, a bit of lemon peel.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence, noticeable astringency.
Flav.: A bit fruity, musty hops galore, a bit dirty, a touch of the honey and spices, something fleeting – I almost want to say a chemical note like ammonia; dry, leaves a biscuity, bread crust aftertaste, a bit of alcohol sting and reasonable bitterness for a Belgian.
Mine didn’t have “Zomerbier” on the label, but this seems like an appropriate summer beer. Something to quaff while relaxing on a patio in Liege.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with minor white head. Aroma is spices, yeast and overall very meady thing. Flavour is almost the one of a tablebeer, very sweet and spicy. Hides the 6.4% well, considered it was almost like having some dark Tafelbier...

Draught at ZBF. You will never believe it but it’s yet another slightly spicy Belgian blonde. This one has a bit of sweetness, who woulda thunk it? Straight forward stuff, you have had it before...
