4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In a ceramic, swing-top bottle labeled as "Yeast Hoist" -- deep, rich golden with a frothy head and heavily sedimented, this screams goodness, visually. The aroma is similarly seductive ... And ultimately this drinks like all the really good, classic Belgian golden ales. Sharp and tangy, with a hint of wild fermentation, but ultimately evenly sweet and beery ... love it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 50cl ceramic bottle form Cora (Luxembourg). Nice clear golden colour with a large white head. Light aroma of yeast, citrus and fruits. Medium carbonation and light to medium body. Flavour is light bitter with a more sweet end. Overall, not bad but nothing special... Except the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Apple, yeast, orange, grains and bread. Clear gold with a thick white head. Honey, apple, grains and light orange. I get a very mild bitterness in the finish, but the sweetness overpowers. The thick mouth feel makes this a slow going beer. I think this would pair well with a desert or fruit, much in the way of an Ice Wine.
As this warms, it is starting to taste more like a light quad. Fruits stand out more, and although apple still prevails it is still pretty good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 500ml in Tolosa. Nice, similar to a tripel. Aromas of caramel, bread, leaves, and green grapes. Taste is sweet, slightly sour, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a thin head.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden colored body with high foamy head.. Hops dominate the aroma and flavor, astringent finish. Aroma is hops, pine, floral. Taste is more of the same capped with some light alcohol burn. Decent effort on this one.

Poured from a porcelain bottle into a glass. Nice golden color with a large head. Not much of an aroma. Light crisp Belgium taste. Decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful bottle. Usually that is meant to mask a bad beer, but this is not bad at all. Golden orangle color with a white head. Citrus or orange peel aromas with yeast and spice. Flavors add caramel and hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light smell, light flavour, citrus hints. Very subtle and soft mouthfeel. But the taste not that special

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden body with medium to large head. Simple malts, classic Belgian yeast, thin. Bit of herbs but generally not very exciting. Simple taste profile à well, although it has just enough malts to make the alcohol and yeast work, it’s still Underhopped. Boring brew. (75cl bottle from Bierparadijs)
