3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Abbey beer since 2012 apparently made for the augustine monks of Ghent; a derivative of Augustijn, but refermented with Brettanomyces, which in this case makes a big difference. Yellowish white, stable head over a misty orange blond beer, fruity aroma of orange peel, pear, caramel, white grapes, grassy hops and indeed a vague leathery Brett hint. Fruity, rounded palate, caramelly malts, yeasty, again vague Brett leading to a dry, grassy finish. Much better than the mediocre Augustijn, in my opinion - and better than what I am used to from this brewery.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Waitrose in Balham. Hazy rich looking golden amber, off white big head, which dissipates to nothing. Nose is sweet, perfumey esters, light pale grain and toasty grain, baked brioche, lighter faint notes of honey. Taste is malty, sweet, perfumey esters, slight white wine vinous, pale grain. It’s very slightly muted and lacks the crispness flavour of something like Duvel.
