3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Fuggle & Golding, Ilkley. Clear gold. Film of bright, white head. Sweet, fruity, bready malts. Banana esters. Hint of grated lemon rind. Taste is bready sweet. Turns fairly bitter. Palate feels a bit chewy and overly thick. A bit claggy. Finishes with those sweet esters, and a lemony, pithy bitter close. Ok.

330ml bottle from Bottle Bank, Falmouth. Pours clear gold with creamy head. Aroma is vibrant sweet yeast. Taste bears a good strong sweetness with pillowy vanilla / banana notes. Not getting the low scores below. I thought this was quite nice.

2nd July 2015
Almost clear gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Sweet dried fruits and sweet floralness. Gets a touch sticky sweet. Mild spice and bread. Smooth dry finish. A little stodgy but fine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Jack in the Box, Altrincham. Gold with lots of fluffy white head. Crisp, bready, citrus, white grape. More than a hint of banana yeastiness. Carbonation is a bit high. It’s a decent facsimile of a Belgian ale but doesn’t bring much of its own character to the table.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle version. Bready malt, orange, honey, spice, yeasty finish. Quite boozy, not too impressive for a belgian-inspired ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a brilliant gold with a moderate white head that leaves islands of lacing. Light Belgian phenolic aroma. "Sweeter" phenols reminiscent of coriander or pink peppercorns. Honey and light malts finish up the aroma. Flavor is a mix of spicy phenols and sweet malts. Again sweet on the finish and the moderately high carbonation does little to clean it up.
