2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
this was quite a good for a lager, especially considering its belgian and i hate every single of them, including stella, very hoppy and substantial, perhaps even a little too heavy but still decent

Sample @ BCTC 2007. Apparently i seemed to like this better than most. Crisp clean tasty lager. Had this after 4 hours of Belgian overload so thinking was probaly not too straight

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled) Clear golden with a smallish, white head. Slightly sweet, a bit corny-malty and buttery aroma with German-pilsenery hops. Slightly sour, pretty acidic, dryish and lightly buttery-malty flavor. Quite light-bodied, pretty foamy and acidic palate. North-German pilsener meets Duvel in this beer, but unfortunately the emphasis is strongly in the first.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle named Vedett Extra Blond with 5.2% alcohol. Pale golden body under a frothy, white head - some of it remaining all the way through. Clean smell of malt and grass. Sweet fruity taste of noble hops. Dry ending. A bit fizzy, diluted mouthfeel and rather dull except for the refeshment on a warm day in the high north (14.07.2007).

Pale yellow with thick white lasting head a la Duvel. Lively carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is corn mais & slight hops .- very crisp & fresh. Good lacing. Aroma a bit better than taste! Ok lager!

Posting #700. Pours anaemic pale gold with an impressively rocky but scummy head of froth. Aromas of tin, grain and bile. Thin, clean, piney and hay-flavoured. Running Cara Pils a close second as the worst belgian beer I’ve ever tasted. No, this is the worst Belgian beer I’ve ever tasted. Some popcorny sweetness after the swallow, but so what? Furniture-flavoured, fizzy, metallic and nasty.

Lighter Duvel version, pale yellow in color with nice snow white Duvel like head. Dry hoppy nose and pils malts in the aroma. Taste is nice and dry, refreshing and clean. Good clear taste with no so much caracter than its older brother.

Bottled. Yellow colour, bug fluffy white head. Aroma is malty, hayish, some nectar and hoppy. Flavour is sweet malts along with some slight flowery hops. A refreshing summer brew. Smooth carbonation. Easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Piss-yellow but nice head. I ordered without having any idea of what it was...silly me. Kinda skunky typical lager aroma, somehow redeeming straw/malt/light hops. Inoffensive but uninteresting.
