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.

Bottled. Fruity, rather sweet, some warming alcohol. A little sourness. Not unpleasant, but not outstanding, either.

A rather mediocre ale, pours well with a nice strong head, taste a rather bland as is the aroma, doesn’t make me sloeber one bit.

Big white head. Yellow body. Mealy, rubbery aroma. Sweetish spicy milky yeasty aroma with wheaty and toffeeish notes. Rounded, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry, grassy mealy milky aftertaste. Nice, but a bit dull. (0.33l bottle from Dorstvlegel, Antwerp.)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle at Camargue, Antwerpen. Hazy, deep golden colour, medium off-white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with hints of peach. Moderate sweet and fruityflavours with a rather more bitter finish. Well-carbonated. Enjoyable, but not very original.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden, moderate head. The aroma has notes of fruit and the flavour is sweetish with a lot of fruit/citrus and a dash of caramel and spice, mostly coriander. A charming one, makes me think of Duvel...

A nice and good tasting beer that you can compare like duvel. Not that full bodied and not so strong but still a very nice beer
