3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lovely blonde that has the right combination of some bitter yeast aroma’s and some light sweetness.
It has a light body, seeing that it still is a blond, but quite a complex texture and a long finish!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Light yellow with a whirlpool of carbonation. The sign of a great beer (as opposed to one that is merely good) is one that you are happy to smell for a good 10 minutes, breathing in an exciting and unique aroma. Fresh and funky, hints of seawater and TCP. The scent of heaven. Taste is even better: a balanced salty sweetness with a bittersweet finish. Palette is like the kiss of one’s own true love.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow amber body, tall steady head. Aroma has wheat, yeast, mild citric hops. Tastes like a strong witbier with coriander, banana, wheat and lemon. Finish adds some honey and a warm glow. A sweet beer with a carefully balanced hoppiness. Such a well balanced beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque yellow-orange, gassy, with a huge bubbly head. Sweet, dry, yeasty and tasty. Has a bitter aftertaste. Spiced and yeasty aroma. A particularly good example of a Belgian blond.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl Bottle: BBD 12th Aug 15, poured into a Duvel glass @ home on 5th Dec 13.
Almost clear golden colour with a good head, could almost have been a Duvel in the glass.
The aroma however told you it wasn’t a Duvel: this had a grainy and mild citrus note in the smell, along with some yeast esters.
The taste was also a mixture of flavours, again grainy, citrusy and yeasty: crisp, sharp and leaning towards tart with a dry bitter finish.
