Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Strong lagerish malts, trace of nuts. Nice touch of lemon brings it together, whisper of brett. Light finish. Good stuff, what are all these low ratings about?

A good looking ale with a mixture of unbalanced flavours like cabdy, malts and mature fruit. Ok overoll.

Aroma is predominantly malty, with some slight fruityness to it. The taste is spicy and herbal with strange woody bitterness at the end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Oosters, Singapore on 18/04/15. Golden colour, slightly cloudy with an off-white creamy head. Soft to medium carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt, grass and hops. More sweet than bitter. Fruity, malty and a little dry. Strong - the alcohol does come through. Simular to a strong Leffe Blonde. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle from The International Beer Collector BB 06/03/15
Pours a big, rocky, creamy white typically Belgian-looking head atop a slightly cloudy blonde body.
Spicy sort of nose - floral herbal, slightly woody hops, bit of nutmeg/clove-like phenolic yeast character. ripe stonefruit note and toasty malt.
Rather dry body, some odd phenolic astrigency there, lifted carbonation - boozy might be aiding the dryness.
Light touch of sweet malt upfront, obvious white sugary note - not so well integrated - more of those ripe stonefruits, herbal hops. Rather bitter finish, dry, warming.
Seems to miss the mark a bit - too boozy, too bitter, maybe both?
