3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Clear, golden body with medium white head. Aroma was slightly spicy with notes of malt. The beer is big on spice, almost like a spicy lager. Minimum complexity. The body is thin. Short, dry finish. Good, but not a favorite Belgian ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a large fluffy white head. Aromas are alcohol followed by soft lemon, yeast and spices. Quite dry and hoppy. Flavours are sweet lemon that is soon replaced by lots of yeastiness and warming (almost harsh) alcohol. Some lemon sourness comes through although mostly its mellow lemon here. Has a pretty bitter finish with a dry finish. A nice beer to take your time with.

Finishes with more spices, yeast notes, dried fruits and flowery notes.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with a large white head. The aroma was malty with a strong hint of wet dog and yeast. I found the taste a bit yeasty too. Lots of fizz which, together with the yeast, tended to dominate the bittersweet subtleties of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget".
Pours a shade light honey color with an amazing big lasting creamy part bubbly head. A bit fruity scent, mixed with some Belgian strong beer scent, but very subtle, might be a bit too cold? More than average body, fairly low bitterness, bit it’s still there. Fresh and a bit spicy flavor. Very long sort of bitter aftertaste. No where does the 7.5% show itself, this is really a well balanced beer, escpically for one that smells and taste so delicate.
