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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is pale yellow, tinge or orange, white head. The aroma is peppery, spicy, grassy, fruity. The flavor is thew same as the aroma, leading with pepper and spice, and grassy. Like a pilsner fermented with belgian yeast. The finish is spicy, pepper. medium in body, substanial carbonation. Not terrible, not great. Again, like a pilsner fermented with Blegian yeast.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, as Grand Cru. Gold with a fluffy white head that collapses to an inch. Aroma of oranges, mandarins, dough, cloves. Taste is sweet with oranges and peaches followed by balancing spicy/ herbal bitterness. Some cloves, vanilla, white pepper. Mildly bitter spice finish with some alcohol. No great depth but bitterness keeps the sweet malts in check without obscuring them.
