3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dec. 28, 2014; packaged in a weighty ceramic stein; tumbler glass. Golden pour (go figure) with shallow head & moderate lacing. Full aroma of overripe fruit & malt. Slightly sour; good bitterness, with some astringency. Not a world-class Belgian, perhaps, but quite enjoyable nonetheless - would have this again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Stone bottle, 50 cl, alone. Blond, hazy beer with a medium white head that lasts. Taste is one of refreshing grains ans hops, little malty also, which makes you think of a good beer. The beer itself isn’t bad indeed, but can’t fill the expectations I had. Nice grainy taste, malty on the background and light hoppy in the end, but lacks depth in the palate and the taste. After a while the beer becomes a bit monotone. Nice to drink on a hot summerday inbetween, but there are better ones in this style for sure.

Cloudy light golden color. Not as spicy or strong as other belgian ales. Alcohol is strong for a 7.6 but overall a good ale that i would have again. Bottle is cool.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A beer this good deserves at least one score marking it near five. Color is really beautiful. Terrific rich golden ale. Very indiginous to Belgium. Wonderful notes of honey. Golden ales like this are underated but like Leffe and Prarie Path (which this beats on both accounts) I have always enjoyed the rich malty flavor of the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml ceramic bottle into a Trappist glass; served cold.
Aroma: Light raisins, fresh yeast, bready, boozy.
Appearance: Moderately hazy, gold body. Creamy, white, head that slowly dissipates to a thin cap.
Taste: A little malty, dried fruits like apricot and raisin. Some light caramel too. Alcohol is present but not overpowering.
Palate: Very high amount of prickly carbonation. Medium body, medium+ finish that ends on light bitterness.
Overall: A really nice golden. Has lots of flavors that remind me of some triples, but isn’t overly sweet or boozy. Great stuff!

Get it from a gift shop in Brusseles. Golden colour, Amberish scent on first, medium head. Very nice on first. But do not stays so much. Nice delisous babe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet sugary aroma. Golden color with white foamy head. The flavor is rich with hints of fruits. The palate is unusually light for a Belgian ale, almost watery. The aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Semi-cloudy pour with some chunks. Malty aroma for a Belgian. Slightly sour butterscotch flavor. Decent head/lacing, but not too impressive. Definitely above average for a beer, yet middling to lower average for Belgian.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Faint aroma of coriander and spices. Taste is light sweetness, a bit of spice. Very watery, thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. Little to no taste, disappointing.

A beer that reminds very strongly of deKonink. It has the same mediocre aroma, but also the same great taste. A really great beer.
