3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Vieux Temps used to be on of the best known light Wallonian ales, when it was brewed at the Mont St. Guibert facility. But InBev hasn’t really done much to promote this in recent years. Beautiful amber colour. A dry bitterness not that different from a pils. Some caramel. Light body. My version was 5% ABV. 071093

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pouring a rich golden color with a diminuitive head, this has a very fruity nose with aromas of plums and cherries. Spritzy in the mouth, it has a pleasant sweet malty taste, still with the fruits, and a subtle hint of smokiness. Refreshing ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the milder ales of Belgium--great copper color and a generally pleasant combination of flavors. Served in little 25cl bottles, this is good as a daytime tipple served with a flavorful Belgian lunch, though it’s no match for the heavier-weight ales in the flavor or fun department.

(bottle) Clear amber colour with medium white frothy head. Chestnut aroma is dominating. Medium sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, soft carbonated. Quite tasty: nutty, malty & yeasty with a light hoppy finish, not long lasting.
