3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2007 (Bottled) Clear golden (opaque orange with yeast) with a large, cloudy head. Slightly spicy aroma with aromatic hops, floral perfume and caramel. Quite acidic, pretty malty and grainy, floral-hoppy flavor with toffee hints. A quite acidic, but pleasantly perfumy brew.
(Bottled, rated 9.5.2004, was 6-4-7-4-14=3.5) Hazy yellow-orangeish color with lots of slowly descending yeast and a medium, white head. Dry, sour, yeasty, hoppy and wineous aroma. Sourish and wineous, dry apple flavor. Thick, dry and oily, medium to full-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. A tasty, dry tripel - also for Cantillon fans.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
<P>(I’m pretty sure this beer is brewed at Van Steenberge, not in Wetteren)</P>
Pale yellow - orange; very creamy snow-white head, collapsing. Fresh plantshoots (luzerne,...) nose, white candi sugar - and (I’m sorry!) pickles. Roasted caramel taste, liquorice, lots of malt, pale and cookie. Some sweetness, just a touch of acidity from the heavy carbonation. Retronasal there’s some burnt malt bitterness. Dry, (typical candi-sugar dryness), bit of "cobwebs", as they’re called here. Medium bodied. Not a bad beer. Just another Belgian "strong" ale, nothing outrageous. And THAT’s what I want...

An unclear orange beer with a fine white head. Both the aroma and the flavor is sweet and spicy - I can’t tell which spices.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Blond, milky with a big head. A typical witbier aroma. The taste, however, is not witbier. It is more sweet hoppy. The typical witbier carbonation is still there. A slight bitter aftertaste.
