0,33 l bottle as a gift.
Poured murky peach colored one with a huge pillowy-creamy white head. Spicey aroma with coriander, fruity, typical belgian yeasts, herbal hops, some tropical fruits, candy sugar. Fine sweet fruity taste, coriander, clove in the flavor, grassy herbal strong, warming alcohol. Fine, but nothing special.

PaulW (105) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin lacing of foam. Not bags of aroma, but its fruity rather than hoppy. Taste starts Belgian but finishes like a wheat beer, with cloves and spice. Dry almost salty finish which I find does not really compliment the fruity malty taste. Ok, but not sure I’d have another.

BlackHaddock (6201) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
33cl Dumpy bottle, well in date, poured into a ’Hoegaarden Grand Cru’ badged stemmed tulip. The sediment stayed in the base of the bottle, so the glass held a dull golden bodied beer with a large white head on top: loads of carbonisation bubbles rising through the almost clear body. Belgian yeasty aroma, some sweetness in there too. The taste is a little too clean and clinical to me, no honest farmhouse feel to the flavours, no bits to get into, not your regular Belgian craft/country brewed beer at all. This is obviously well made and lovingly cared for, but it defeats what I love about going to Belgium, finding and bringing back beers that challenge the tastebuds and enhance my beer enjoyment.
