3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
08.22.04 0.5l crock. Golden pour; big bits of stuff floating about; head is small, but thick and creamy, light tan. Typical Belgian yeasty aromas. A slightly off, slightly chemical smell (aerosol paint?). Creamy texture, very full mouthfeel. Mild flavors with melon and vanilla undertones. Nice finishing bitterness. Not much spice. Pretty focused on one dimension, unfortunate alcohol presence for a beer that’s not huge. Enjoyable, but not remarkable.

Bottle, DBF 2004. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Sweet maltiness in the nose, more malt and a touch of spicy yeast in the mouth with some developing corky funkiness into the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golden red, brown colour, hazy & creamy, nice head but it looked chemical. Couldn´t make out a distinct aroma, some sweet and fruity traces. Taste is disappointing, flat and watery, I expected much more from this one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy orange body with a thinnish off-white head. Aroma of curacao, coriander seed, wheat and apricots. Light-bodied; Sharp astringent taste up front with some fruity sweetness. Aftertaste shows bitterness and not much else. Overall, not strong and not pleasing. I bought this 75 cL bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 11-April-2004.
