2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, alc. 4.5% [BB 02/2007].
Light copper brown, small head. Aroma has banana (and other sweet fruits) and hay. Light palate, light hoppy flavor, metallic "non-alco" notes. Quite boring - like Belgian ale without flavors - as low ABV indicates.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, Pelgrims, Aarschot) Clear dark amber colour, amberish too fast disappearing head.
Hoppy aroma, alcohol, dark fruits, guar, earth, grass. Taste is monotomous milt sweet, aftertaste more bitter. Lacks complexity.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden-amber, very heavily carbonated beer to fluffy, very fine amberish head, leaving shards of lace. Herbal & caramelly nose, fresh smelling, malt & parsley. Mild sweet beer, bit of caramel. Very remote smokey flavour retronasal. And that’s it. Totally, utterly empty palate, very soft MF (carbonation fast gone). Dull, dull, dull.

(Bottle at Le Poechenellekelder, Brussels) Golden, with a nice lasting offwhite head. Malty, nutty flavor with some toffee. Malty flavor, toffee, then it turns more bitter. Quite thin compared to other belgian beers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled, BBE 01/2006) Clear amber color with a tight white head. Slightly sour-aciduc-plastic-cardboardy aroma. Some maltiness, but mostly plastic and cardboard in the flavor. Light-bodied, almost watery palate with lemonadey carbonation. A very lightweight, tasteless and quite disapointing brew.
