3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ The Willow Walk JDW. The pour’s light gold with a small white head. The nose is sweet honey, some Belgian yeast sweetness, white grape, and summery fruits. Mild sugared grain aromas. The taste is much the same, lightly syrupy and sweet. Musty, yeasty concord grapes and breakfast cereal sugar. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, a pretty mediocre effort.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. On sale for $5.99...but also best but the 25th of May, 2012, so it’s at least 2 years old. Tastes that way too. The aroma has really faded, picking up some garbage tones, spices. Still looks nice, fluffy white head. Decent champagne/ Belgian carbonation. Tastes really dingy and grainy for a Belgian beer. Not a fair rating for the new product. Don’t let this one age in your cellars. A touch boozy for the lowish ABV. It grew on me a little, but I wouldn’t want another bottle. Old school Belgian tastes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a liqor store in Leerdam. The beer has a golden/blonde color and a nice white head, CO2 level is good. The aroma is spicy with tones of yeast and caramel and is light fruity. The taste is a little sweet and fruity and has a subtle bitterness, and is a little watery. The finish is short and light bitter. Not a special one, but is fine to drink once.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33l fles thuis. Amber kleurig bier dat een beetje mistig is met een witte kraag die snel slinkt. Geur is alcoholisch met graan. Smaak is zoet met een beetje hop. Mondgevoel is dun en trekkend. Geen topper.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Luxor, Leiden. Poured crystal clear light amber with a long lasting frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is big yeast with a little malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery malt hop liqourice palate. Drinkable but it’s living on borrowed time.
