Bottle at Appellation Wines we wish you a hoppy Christmas tasting. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head that dies quickly. Aroma of lemon, Turkish delight, a little soap, orange, pineapple and coconut. Flavours of lemon, orange, mild soap, buttered popcorn and a grassy finish. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Really good and a cracking ceramic swing-top bottle too.

50cl bottle. Pours golden with initially a generous head which falls back to a nice layer of lace. The nose has pineapple and lemon zest. The taste has
The palate is medium structured, with a big tangy/creamy texture and a dry tangy finish. Overall, this is a good example of a Belgian Blonde.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl ceramic bottle. Pours a GOLDEN with a big snowy white head. Nose : Aromatic fruity apricot, little pear and cherry. Banana scents. Fruity soap overall aromas. Yeast ans caramel. Sip : Well carbonated and creamy body plays this role until the swallow ; acceptable foam in the throat. Again apricot and now banana layer is more obvious. Cherry soap still in the background imagination. It’s a delicate clove dry beer on the end. Very floral and a bit honey. I will buy it again because of the ceramic bottle and I will enjoy the taste. Not exceptional beer but honest blond beer. I payed 3.59 euros for it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sehr süßlichlicher medizinaler Duft.
Fruchtiger Antrunk. Im weiteren Verlauf ist in der kräuterigen-medizinalen Mitte etwas Herbe mit dabei. Beinahe scharf. Diese Schärfe macht sich vor allem im Abgang bemerkbar, der dann kratzig wirkt.
Ein wenig unrundes Gebräu.Test vom 16.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

I got this in the limited edition YEAST HOIST ceramic bottle. It was good if a little more citrusy than I’d expect. Good beer but I wonder how much of the $11 price is tied into the fancy packaging. Hey, it worked to get my attention and buy it so I guess you can’t argue with that.
