3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
golden with decent white head. nose of solventy alcohol mostly before touches of belgian esters and citrus hops. some bitterness before more solventy alcohol masks and mires the yeast and hop component, though the residual sweetness is low enough to make the beer fairly drinkable. overall not a well fermented beer

Botella de 65 cl en el momento en el lúpulo el 05-11-2014. embotellada en 2913. color amarillento turbio con espuma blanca no muy persistente. Aromas y sabores maltosos afrutados,, un autentico zumo de piña. Con toques amargos ligeros sobretodo al coger temperatura. Cuerpo medio con 9.9 vol que no se dejan notar mucho, solo saliendo a relucir al final un poco. No esta mal, buena refrescante y con sabores afrutados intensos.

"kinda like the bastard child of belgo old guardian and more traditional belgians. the yeast is fruity, spicy ,and sweet, with the hops a little more in the background. some alcohol heat shines through, as dome some bubble gum aroma and flavor. nicely done, tasty brew."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from Biernavigatie, large sample, served in an Oersoep tulip glass. Clear golden to orange color, medium slight off-white frothy head. Aroma has slight sweet honey, bit spicy, fruity of yeast and hops, bit grassy and spicy, slight malty as well, hint of toffee. Not as much high alcohols as most Belgian beers would have. Soft sweet taste, bit malty, slight flowery and citrussy bitterness, soft alcohol burn. Spicy and dry as well. Medium carbonation, quite full bodied. Totally not like a belgian example, but very typical american-belgo styled. Much more malt based (instead of sugar) and powerful and less crisp and dry. Almost barley-wine-esque. Nice big sipper.
