3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml firstname.lastname@example.org%, lot 402. Pours hazed brass with an audibly fizzing white cap. Wine gum and jasmine on the nose with lime-squirted chick pea and the citrus of hops and coriander seed. Strong prickling flavour of temples and patchouli incense ash with demented yeast and musty spice cupboard. Mid-bitter finish with big hop bite for style. Dirty dishcloth lowlands hops. Bonus point for sheer weirdness and drinkability. Out there.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from Lekkerbier at 6.5% ABV, BB12/2013, large sample, served in a trappist glass. Pours a clear golden color with some small debris floating around and small to medium lasting frothy slight off-white head, leaving some lacing. Aroma is quite spicy, bit coriander and orange, slight peppery, bit citrus, bit grainy (hint of wheat?), slight caramel note. Bit sweet in taste, slight bitter. Finishes more towards the bitter, where the initial taste is more fruity sweetness. Medium carbonation, medium body. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 mL bottle. Cloudy, light to medium copper with a spritzy foam of white head. Perfumey nose with floral notes, zesty lemon, mild grainy, bready malt, spicy Old World hops and a hint of mossy barnyard. Incredibly dry, the malt is perceivable, but somehow not sweet at all. Bitey hop tinged finish. Light to medium body but with a very creamy palate. Full carbonation. Lingers long and complex.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft during Thiriez tap takeover at Les Trois 8 in Paris, great luck! Pours a hazy straw color with voluminous head. Aroma is fantastic: grassy hops, banana, doughy pilsner malt, light spice. Super fresh. Taste is bready malt, orange, lemon zest, herbal hops, prominent lingering bitterness. Refreshing. Full mouthfeel. Archetypal Franco-Belgian blonde, and I feel lucky to have tried it so fresh and on tap.
