3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden / yellow with a large white fizzy head. The aroma is dominated by yeast giving a breadiness, somewhat sweet pale malt, some banana and other light fruitiness. Medium body that seems fine, but suffers from a case of insane over-carbonation. The flavor starts with much of what’s on the aroma, but marred a bit by the spiciness from the carbonation. The finish seems to have spicy hops, some fruitiness and some nice sour traits. Interesting beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear gold with a lot of white head. Massive lacing on the way down. Nose is sweet and thick...just like I love the Belgians to be. So far, the signs point to a good experience. Flavor is oh so smooth. Sweet and even, it almost seems to have a slight nutty edge to it - or maybe it is wood-like. Very slight at that, whichever it may be. Standard sweet and citrus aspects to it, but this isn’t just a standard brew. This one is well crafted and extremely smooth. Feel is great. Good levels of carbonation. Drinkability? If this were readily available to me (I brought it back from a trip), I’d be drinking this all the time.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden colour with quite a lot of white head and has a little sediment. A nice aroma of yeast and perhaps a little honey. The taste is similar, there’s some tart fruits and a kick of alcohol aswell as a slight hint of honey on the aftertaste. Good solid beer.

330ml bottle. Shared with Tranquility - thanks!
Pale yellow gold, with a light head. Typical strong belgian beer aroma. Clean and crisp, pleasantly bitter, and with a lightly bready maltiness. A bit alcoholic in places. Nothing actually wrong with it, but maybe it didn’t suit the hot weather and my mood.
