3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Weird-ass Yeast Hoist bottle. Golden pour with a smallish white head. Lots of fruity esters on the aroma with grains and Belgian yeast. The flavor is somewhat sweet and fairly yeasty but well balanced. Peach and banana yeast notes. Medium-plus bodies with good carbonation. Maybe a tad on the syrupy side. Good beer overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. As "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Clear deep golden with a nice, big, stable white head. Aroma has some fruitiness, alcohol, some floral and grassy hops and light grainy hints. Rather sweet alcoholic flavor with some malt, honey notes, some fruitiness, yeasty notes and a drier finish, slightly spicy, with light bitterness and some more alcohol. Medium-bodied. So-so.

Appearance was cloudy pale golden with rocky diminishing whitish 1 finger head, no lacing.

Taste was sweet bready malts, then lemony piney hops with spicey cloves and herbs. Palate was smooth champagne-like with meduim body and long warming alcohol finish.

ceramic bottle painted up with yeast hoist. Pours mellow golden colored with a solid gentle carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet sugar and malty yeast with gentle fruity esters. Taste has a nice gentle mix of spice and sweetness and good carbonation very nice. Palate is thin with plenty of fizz and dry finish. Solid!

500 ml crock. Pours gold with a large head and nice lacing. Yeasty aroma with lemons and spice. Flavors of lemons, white pepper, coriander, bananas and bubblegum. Not too strong. Refreshing. Cool bottle.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with a lot of bubbles and 60% white head. The head settles down in a few minutes and gives way to a lagerbier aroma dominated by cereal grains like an American pale lager. Its a little gummy and the lacing is weak. The flavor is light barley and a little coriander. Pretty boring for a Belgian.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit hazy, pale, and golden with a huge, frothy white head and decent lacing. Aroma of sour apple, funky yeast, bubblegum, sweet fruit, grapes and caramel. Taste is malty and quite yeasty; a little funky and mildly bitter. Medium bodied, a little dry, with a bitter finish and average carbonation. Not bad, but I canít imagine why this isnít in the Belgian Ale category.
