2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours golden brown with small off white head with low retention. Surprisingly light aroma of malt and yeast. Taste is yeasty, malty and sour, with a metallic off taste creeping in. Somewhat low carbonation, watery palate and an aftertaste reflecting the sour and metallic aspect...unfortunately. Gets marginally better as it warms up, but it is not a good copy Belgian beer and not to be repeated

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Belgian Ale is simply an insult to the Belgian brewing tradition. It must surely represent a dubbel, but it lacks both foam, fullness and palate. The foam is quickly gone, and the flavor is thin of a little hard roasted malt. The taste is watery, but then comes a little surprise of anise. Anonymous and boring hoppy bitterness. Belgian ales usually having lots of flavors, for example. dried fruit or fresh berries. Well, it is drinkable - but not with a particular Belgian flavor and quality.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copenhagen 21/7 2015. 50 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Pours light brown with off-white head. Dissipates fairly fast to thin layer. Malty sweet aroma with a twist of sourness. Medium carbonation. Taste is quite sweet with distinct metallic taste of alcohol. A good long sour aftertaste. Not particulary Belgian and not particulary good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Clear, copper body with a nice, creamy pale beige head. Aroma is malty with candy sugar and some dry fruit. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, candy sugar, Belgium yeast, dry fruit and moderate bitterness with a hint of alcohol. Fine body and decent aftertaste with sweet malt and a Belgium yeast touch and light warming alcohol. Pleasant ale, rather fine copy of the Belgium style but still not right there among the masters. This was served close to best before date and I think that might be a good deal for this beer.
