3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured straw with a tight white head. Aroma of buttery caramels and peppery spiciness. This is a yeast driven beer. It starts sweet with the malts, then goes into the yeast derived flavors, and finishes dry with a firm bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a large white frothy head. Aroma of hay, grass, yeast and a bit of coriander seed and curacao. Medium-bodied; Assertive grass and hay flavours with some large yeast and wheat presence with a touch of sweet flavours at the end - apples and pears. Aftertaste is dry and pungent with a little hop taste and a lot of saison flavours throughout with a hint of a biere de garde essence. Overall, a good and potent beer - a nice one to sample, especially at under one €. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from La Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 sampled on a train from Bruxelles to Amsterdam on 02-January-2011.

draft at Blue Monk, pours a lighter yellow orange with smaller white head. lighter aroma, light floral fruitiness. Taste is easy going but somewhat muted. No dominate flavors, light fruity yeastiness, light bitterness. An unobtrusive, easy drinking Belgian

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy yellow color with a tick, pillowy white head. Pleasant aroma of wheat, spices and fruity esters. The flavor is quite good and refreshing, there’s a nice balance between the wheat, the fruity esters and the spices. The body is medium to full while the texture is oily and the carbonation is medium. This is very interesting, it’s very close to a german hefe-weizen.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I drakn this from a 12oz bottle into a tulip...The beer pours a dark peach color, weird looking, with any carbonation at all...The smell and taste are both dominated by syrup and bouron, super sweet with alcohol. A little oak, a very boozy finish. The feel is ok, can’t drink much of this...This is too boozy to drink a lot of or make it very good. Worth trying but not worth going out of your way to get.

Very big white head on top of a clear yellow orange beer.
Smell honey, spices, hops, piss and a hint of sweets.
Taste honey, malts, wheat, sweets, fruit, pear, abricot and a fresh hint of hops and spices.
Aftertaste is a mix of sweets, fruit and bitter.
Medium carbo, low to medium body, soft mouthfeel and a watery texture.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A big fluffy white head sits atop this beer and slowly collapses. The beer itself is semi clear golden with yeast sediment that is suspended. An aroma of light fruit and spices that include coriander. Some yeast and funk, too. Hop dry bitterness begins the flavor. The spices seem to be from hops, as well. Light fruit. Wheat is noted with some hefe flavors. Some lemon is also noted. This is tasty and refreshing.
