2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Golden yellow, pretty clear, with a hige, frothy, not too persistent bright white head. Spicy and fruity aroma, mainly peach, apple and banana. Fruit esters, light cinnamon and alchool. So fizzy, it’s like drinking air! Mild peppery notes in the mouth, slightly yeasty, solid bitterness, the alchool is well hidden. Grassy, herbal and fruity aftertaste. Lively carbonation, light body, creamy texture. Not bad, but the extremely high carbonation is totally off putting for me.

Quite average Belgian blond beer, but enjoyable nevertheless. Refreshing brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity esters, some light hop notes, light metallic yeasty note and quite some spices/herbs. Flavour is very spicy almost minty, some malt sweetness and faint hop, but mostly spices. Too much imho.

Cerveja estilo abadia sem muita expressão. Boa formação de espuma e boa retenção. Amargor e sabor de malte levemente adocicado.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light misty body with off white bubbly head, looks okay. Simplistic malt bill, some caramel, honey and pie. Not much character, not much yeast power and certainly very full little hop. Sweet body, average bubbly mouthful, simplistic, okay but forgettable. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus)
