2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Like the dark, this beer doesnít age. It is flat, but the flavor and aroma is ok. Once again I wonder why a Belgian brewer is following the German purity law. Some fruit in the aroma and flavor. Belgian yeast flavor as well, and I bet this had decent palate at one time. Hazy gold but no visible sediment.

This golden ale poured with a nice white head that, unfortunately, didnít last long. The flavor, though a bit thin, was fruity and tasty, with a spicy/peppery finish. A decent brew, but nothing special.

I picked this one up at the Central Market. It comes in a neat resealable bottle in 16 oz size. I think I must be hallucinating, because Iím pretty sure I bought beer, but this looks, smells, and tastes like apple juice.If you are able to get past that, itís too bad of a brew, but for me, it was a little too difficult to get past. Give it a shot if you like apple juice.

Pours a light cloudy golden amber color with yeast visible in the pour. Had a nice white head that disipated quickly. Has notes of carmel and honey but they are overpowered by the bitterness. Overall not a bad beer, but not memerable except for the bottle.

You know, not one I really liked. I guess it is what it was supposed to be, but if you like this style, youíll like this one. It was light in color, nice head. Came in a ceramic jug. It was sweet I thought, like Deus and Hennepin.

7/12/10. 16oz fliptop. Sweet fruity aroma with a hint of pale and pilsner malts, fruity Belgian with a solid dryness as well.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium clear gold orange with tiny, just visible sediment flecks under a mountainous, white, variable bubble short lasting head. Very faint bitter hops and malt, fresh fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium to light body, lowly carbonated, bitter and malt flavours. Tastes more like a heavish pils that a strong Belgian. Quite ordinary really .

Bottle. Slight banana, clove, and wheat taste. As with St. Sebastiaan Dark, it is a little thin in body. Finish is quite crisp and clean. Not bad, but not something worth writing home about.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange-golden colour with virtually no head. Aroma is typically Belgian - yeasty and a little spicey - but not very unique or exciting. Body is somewhat flat. Flavour is sweet (honey, caramel) and a little peppery. Quite disappointing - I have a feeling it may have suffered from transport and/or storage issues.

75 cl bottle branded St Sebastiaan Grand Cru. Best before 30.08.04 and was therefore offered as a souvenir gift from the kind gentlemen at Holemans Drankencentrale. Poured it carefully to avoid the big sediments on the bottom, still some of it escaped into the glass. Otherwise clear, deep orangey golden with a medium white head. Strange aroma of sweet malt and sharp hops. Sweet malty flavours behind the musty cellar character (from the aging I suppose). Some peachy fruitiness. Dry, grainy texture. Warming alcohol. Well-carbonated. Not altogether successful, but it could be due to aging as well.
