3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy golden ale with a thick onctuous off white head, lacing and beautiful. A very herbal hops aroma, catnip, some Brett, and lemon notes. In mouth, another fine Orval style ale, with bready malt, light Brett notes, coriander, orange peels, herbal bitterness, very sustained. Bottle bought in Amsterdam, Nov. 2006, so 2.5 years old. Still a treat!!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Specialty ale made for De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Deep amber colour, powerful aroma of sweet spices and perfumes, which are also present in the taste, but well-balanced by a powerful, herbal hop bitter finish. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330ml at home, poured into a small tulip glass, ABV 7%
Very dark orange to light amber in colour, tall and thick off-white head on top. Good acticity in the glass, visible although the beer is quite hazy and somewhat murky. The head has very good retention, taking ages to collapse entirely, and it leaves heavy lacing after it finally did.
Aroma of light caramel, grains, fruity notes with apricot being dominant, some yeast.
Taste also of grains, yeast, quite bitter straight away with the bitterness beig a long lasting one, again fruity notes of peaches and apricots.
Medium body, good lively carbonation. Very dry on the palate.
Overall a great beer, I was expecting a generic belgian style blond seeing it’s brewed for a beer shop but I was wrong, this can stand everywhere by itself.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours slightly hazy yellow. Taste presents bitter, fruity IPA hops with a touch of sourness and some interesting spicy pepper / coriander coming through. Fresh & drinkable but that spiciness isn’t generally my cuppa tea.
