3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
purs very very light ( half a bottle 33 cl cause i used a small glass, maybe less clear when poured fully ) in a yelowish-see-trough kinda colour.
foam is fading quite fast, yet not extremely.
smell reminds me of a sweetness you can also find in la chouffe. taste definetly has that, yet its totaly not a la chouffe..it has some kinde of mini-aftertaste that kinda reminds me of some other beer... i think karmeliet ( not sure on this one) carbonation is again, too much for my taste, but not extreme at all...
overall a nice beer if you like chouffe and karmeliet, thats not super intresting, yet not pushing the boundries too far so you dont like it... i think everybody could drink it, but it wouldnt be anybodys favourite...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A-- Poured a clear, golden straw color. Lots of visible carbonation. Poured a big, cloud white head that slowly faded to under a finger in height. Lots and lots of sticky, thick lacing. Excellent head retention.
S-- Citrus, sour grape tart and a bit of a bread smell. Smells are clean and a bit on the faint side.
T-- Spices, bread and a bit of a soda pop grape taste. Different but not bad. Not very bold but good.
M-- High carbonation, a little bit of bitterness from the spices but the grape taste is what sets this out. Feels and tastes a lot like a grape soda but soft. Finishes clean and pretty crisp.
O-- Solid, workable Belgian style beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 330ml: Pours an orange colour with a small head for a Belgian. Aroma is wildflower honey, fruitiness, and another note that is very particular to some Belgian ales. Taste is somewhat sweet, owing to the intense honey overtones. Has an off-note or two. Still, it is really smooth and pretty nice to drink. Alcohol covered up, but it kind of has like a hard liquor taste in a way.

This Belgian Ale has a sweet vanilla aroma with a light yellow color and a big frothy head. The taste is really sweet with a short aftertaste.

Bottle at tasting. Hazy light yellow color, creamy white heas. Aroma is faint, malty and spicy. Flavor is slightly metallic, spicy, somewhat sweet, slightly bitter in the finish. Nice balance. Subtle yet nice. Creamy texture and above average carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle - pours hazy orange with quickly diminishing white head. Nose is nutty with basement aromas. Flavor adds caramel and leaves. Sweet! sticky mouthfeel with a slight burning sensation. A flavor that just won’t quit. A night cap reading beer if I’ve ever had one; too bad it’s only 7:34 PM.
