3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden, eggshell white thin head. Aroma of biscuit, bready yeast, pale malts, and honey. Thin body, biscuity sweet finish. This one is mainly malt, hops and yeast are both restrained.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden blond as the name suggests with a small white head. Very hazy. Aroma is malty and musky with little hop aroma but moderate fruit overtones. Flavor is of sweet, grainy malt, fruit (banana), and a little spice though it finishs dry. No real hop bitterness or flavor. A tinge of sourness was present that I wish was more developed to give make this beer more balanced and refreshing. This beer was close to a witbier I feel if it were lighter bodied.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light, crackery, blonde, spritzy, malty creamy,earthy, dry, fly, jamiroquai....ummm, has a nice grainy middle nearly overpowered by the carbonation, still I like the spritziness and think it’’s tasty and clean, and over all enjoy this (perhaps ),under rated beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Pale and hazy yellow colour with small creamy white head. Citrus-fruity, yeasty and malty aroma. Soft sweet flavour, the high carbonation complemented with strong wheaty taste brings this brew close to a Witbeer. This one lacks taste and is not very remarkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A blonde beer with a slim white head. The aroma is sweet perfumed and floral. The taste starts over sweet then mellows a little. I was a bit disappointed at the depth of character of this beer, feeling it wasn’t grown up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours canary with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, some barnyard. Tastes citrusy, with hops, yeast, coriander, and some spices. Somewhat light palate, with uninspiring complexity or finish. A lightweight among the Belgian heavyweights.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hazy orange color with a medium, lacy head. White-wineous aroma with sweetish honey and lemon. Sweetish but also sour, somewhat fruity flavor with yeast and dryish, bitter hops towards the finish. Medium-bodied palate with foamy carbonation. Plain, but reasonably refreshing and balanced blonde without any serious faults.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Banana yellow and opaque, with a half-inch head and good lacing. Aromas of sourdough and spice, with a slight hoppy background. Tasting offers an initial sweetness, followed by woodsy notes of wild yeast and hops. Light finish. A smooth beer that is overwhelmed by its carbonation, so low marks on palate. Overall, a somewhat medieval beer with a unique profile. The yeast stands out.
