2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl Bottle: BBD Dec 2014. Poured (at home) into a Duvel glass during Jul 2013.
Half way through the pour huge sediment pieces began to shoot out the bottle with the beer: once fully poured it looked awful and even after getting a sieve out to decant again it was obvious I’d end up with a mass of floating grist in my glass. A big disappointment as I’d had this bottle in my stash for awhile and was looking forward to it.
Anyway the orange body was full of ’bits’ and even though I allowed it plenty of time to settle it refused to even consider the idea.
The beer had a decent enough nose: yeast (obviously with it all in the glass), fruity and interesting.
The taste was not as interesting or decent though: sweet and ’bitty’ is the best I can come up with.
I’ve tried to score objectively, but I don’t really think this would have scored highly even if it had been clear, bright and less murky.

Lovely beer that still isnt well known to most of the beerdrinkers. Fruity aroma and even a more fruitier (after-)taste. Definately recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Bart and Evelien. Slighty hazy golden with a small white head. Spicy sweet aroma with orange and cloves. Light bittersweet taste with lots of caramel. Quite lively carbonation. Maybe its because of the oats but it kind of reminded me of the famous Tripel Karmeliet, although is bit lighter and less complex. Nice beer for sure.
