3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, BB 17/10/15, large sample. Slight hazy yellow to golden color with a huge rocky slight off-white head. Aroma has lots of spicy yeast notes, hint of banana, bit grassy hop, hint of citrus. Bit citrussy bitterness in taste, slight sweet. Quite high on carbonation. Feels like 80% belgian blonde beer with 20% belgian white. Quite refreshing, just the carbonation is a bit too high and makes you burp after just a couple of sips.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dorée trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc crémeux et aérien. Plutôt maltée, elle développe une petite amertume de pils ainsi qu’une petite note à la fois herbacée et épicée, sans oublier un petit citronné. OK, sans plus.

Pour @BBF 02/2014, ZA. (unfortunately from bottle, is 5% bottle refermentation hard to transplant on keg?). Top pale ale sessioner, a true modern Belgian pale ale that is informed by modern saisons, APA and wit. Dry palate, hints of wit fruitiness, gently dryhopped imparting lovely citrus, but steering clear of the Belgoo dryhopping= air freshener trap. Once again, I am backing any fresh, below 6% Belgian Ersatz sessioner as long as BE sessioning lagers or pilsners remain sub par. This is one to gently seduce regular, high ABV-abstaining drinkers without making any quality compromises, for which Dilewyns deserves credit. Tap next time?
