3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki)
Dry dusty aroma, but quite big. Lovely soft malty body - light pale grains. Lovely sweet retronasal vapours - light malt, and stealth hops. Some hoppy stickiness - raw but very subtle. Very easy to underrate as it’s a subtle beer, but with lots of interesting delicate details.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with lots of white head. Subtle aroma, some what fruity with spicey notes. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Initial tangy taste moves through bananas to a spicey and bitter finish. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a medium sized, fizzy and collapsing white head. The aroma is malty with some notes of orange peel and coriander. Some grassy hoppiness. The flavour is malty too and begins with a medium sweetness, followed by a herbal bitterness. Again quite spicy and fruity (lemon, orange, hint of tropical fruits). Light to medium body, lively carbonation, dry medium finish with light to medium bitterness. maybe the body is on the thin side but this is a nice beer.

Depp golden color with a generous head and lace. Aromas include perfumy hops and spices. Good mouthfeel and body with malt and orange flavors. Dry finish to a decent Belgian brew.

750 ml corked bottle. Huge frothy beige head leaving excellent lacework. Hazed, greyish golden, well carbonated body. Very dry and fresh acidulous fruity aroma. Crisp wheaty taste, nicely balaced with a fine bitterness, an orangey fruitiness and some mild spices. Healthy body. Dry, gently bitter and peppery finish. A very refreshing Blonde.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hmmmm non mi ha convinto molto: aroma lieve ma non spiacevole, abbastanza agrumoso (arancia? bergamotto acido?); fa una bella schiuma molto compatta e bianca. Ma il sapore č piuttosto disastroso: i 7 gradi e mezzo si sentono tutti, e il resto č un compromesso fra metallico e cappero. La consiglierei con tartine al paté di olive... tuttavia rimane una birra non proprio azzeccata.
