4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy and golden with a thick white head, good lacing. Bread and fruit aromas, pear, banana, a little bit of clove. Tastes slightly bready with some pear and grape sweetness from esters and a fruity, slightly spicy hop profile. Medium bodied with high carbonation.
I’m confused by the low overal score of this beer. It’s a solid Belgian Pale with a weird label.

honey and malt the brew is a bit sticky in the body. some old ale and a bit of berry perhaps blackberry which i can’t stand but seems ok here. some dimension to this beer and alcohol not evident. a bit of artificial nut perhaps.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Golden yellow beer with medium white head, good looking beer. Aroma is hard to get, almost non-existent. There is some bitterness in the taste, mixed with some sweet hints. Palate is watery, a bit pale, reminds me of Vedett somehow. Light beer, perhaps good for a warm day, but there are better alternatives.

An average belgian beer. Nice head, nice colour, taste is not bad, but not also not great.

Little cloudy golden yellow appearance. There is a little white layer of foam. It looks like a pilsner, but than cloudy. This cloudiness tells you this is more than a regular beer. The smell is rather simple. A hint of cheap cafe beer. But there are some fruity sweet raisin notes. The taste is of a nice blonde beer. Sugary sweet in the finish. Further there is the typical blonde beer taste. Very nice, but not very special.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33cl. Clear light yellow with a huge, sturdy white top. Nice carbonation. Aroma is not very special, a bit of citrus is recognizable. The taste is a pleasant bitterness, which turns a bit sharper as the aftertaste develops. Reminds me a bit of Duvel.

Heerlijk en mooi goudkleurigebiertje. In Nederland niet heel erg populair helaas, maar zeker de moeite waard.
