2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle, BB 22/11/2013.
Dorée, col blanc moyen.
Arôme de grains, malté avec une certaine douceur de feuilles écrasées.
Palais de triple belge avec un profile qui pour moi reste trop sucré. Je ne vois pas l’intérêt d’enlevé les sucres pour rajouter un autre sucre naturel qui au final gâche trop la bière. Comme souvent, on retrouve cette base levure de DeProef.
Note houblonné légère en amertume avec une pointe citronnée.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl. bottle from ALBO @ home // I have tried chocolate with stevia before and frankly it was terrible // still curious, ticker etc. // pours like beer in a commercial, fluffy synthetic head, no lacing // smells sweet, quite sweet, butter, honey, nectar // taste is dough, banana, lots of dough & banana, flower, sweet, spices, sugar, floral bitter & what I assume is stevia bitterness, stevia is good for people with special dietary requirements (if there are such people) and as a dirt-cheap alternative for artificial sweetener but as culinary thing it appears to be terrible, you know it is just bad // easy going yeast body, fizzy // the sweetness is heavy and the weir stevia bitterness just doesn’t go away, the aftertaste last beyond anything imaginable // interesting experiment (?)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, Belgium 26th May 2012 consumed sat outside Frank (camper) Salzburg, Austria, Sunday 3rd June 2012 Pours warm gold with a large white head, despite the sugar free aspect of this beer I still found it had a strange invasive sweetness. Busy carbonation and a little over spicy at times with a bitterness in the finish. Interesting and well done to them for making a sugar free beer but it could have been better. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Blonde. Soft malty floral aroma. Grainy sweet, floral, somewhat soapy flavor with milky and toffee notes. Not a prize winner.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33cl bottle shared with Joes. Clear yellow / golden color, small white head that quickly becomes a small lacing. Smell almost nothing, just lightly malts and some sweetness. Taste is weird and not nice: metallic, medicinal, a weird sweetness. Fizzy carbo, thin texture, low body.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge, dense, just off-white head over clear golden beer, very lively carbonated. Rainwater/wet dog nose, dried garden herbs, buttermilk. Roasted, sweet, bit aggressiviely sweetish, but also spiced - bitterish, especially in the finish. Sugarsyrup, sweet dough, (over)dried spices. Quite carbonated, not very well-bodied. Aftertaste is a long, disturbing sweetness that doesn’t have any links I recognize. Not my cup of beer. The Stevia thing needs more experimenting, before going to market for such a fickle thing as beer...
