3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Finch’s, Bloomington. Nice straw gold pour, with a slightly grainy, gritty look to it, and a big dappled head. Huge dry and spicy aroma is so inviting, more or less the only kind of thing I can imagine over a lunch. Spot on with some lovely yeast notes at the fore (both aroma and taste), backed up by subtly dry hopping, white pepper, mild floral notes, and a hint of sea salt in the finish. Very satisfying.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of pale malt, nettles, flowers, marshmallow, bubblegum, and a bit of spice. Far more spice forward in the mouth, with elements of black and white pepper, more pale malt, clove, green hops, lemon pith, and a touch of banana. Moderately malty on the tongue, but with a grippy dryness/bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking, yet still fairly complex.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw golden beer, a little hazy, with small but frothy white head. Aroma is very likable: Grainy malts and floral citrusy hops, spicy with a little tart note and a touch of bubblegum. Taste is medium sweet with a rather edgy medium hoppy finish. Medium body, oily mouthfeel with average carbonation. Very likeable, all though not quite up there with the best best Belgian blondes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy lemon colour with a thin head which mostly holds. The nose has floral notes, lemon and vanilla custard and malt. The taste has lemon tart over the top of a malt background, then a nettley finish. The palate has big structure, a big tangy texture and a tangy clean finish. Overall, this is a gorgeous beer which defies the lower than usual for Belgian alcohol levels.
