3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 7 Oaks, Leuven. Amber body, good big white head. Chalky sweetish nose. Typical Belgian ale, sweetish, lighter than average, kinda spicy. Vague on the notes on this one, doesn’t stand out of the crowd but is a cute little beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (de la becasse, Brussels)
5+ Slightly emasculated dark grainy aroma.
4 Deep orange, small head
5 Slightly weetabixy retronasals. Again emasculated, but clearly roasted grains and a hint of husky hops.
2+ Watery palate, crisp carbonation. Finish dull husky grains.
12 Above scores seem a bit harsh, this is a very drinkable simple dark ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ah, just like old times.... a 250ml bottle, extremely cheap, but from a good Parisian source. It pours average, a modest head and a modest light gold body; it smells of grains, fruitiness, and some hops. The taste is a murky bundle of wet grain, wet grass, rice; it has a smooth mouthfeel. It works, it’s nice, and very earthy like a bière de garde.

Clear amber coloured beer with medium white and lots of carbonation. Nice spicy, granny aroma with some malty touches. Medium palate, slighly sparkling. Finish is bitter roasted ending a bit dry, nicely soft balanced finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild aroma, some sweetness but not much. After taste has wheat, while bottle lable had mark up of corn instead of wheat. Ok beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a huge foamy, frothy, off white head that mostly disappears and light wisps of frothy lace. Color is a medium to darker amber. Aroma is malty, cereal, and a little hop. Flavor is the same, but more sweet and the flavor shredded wheat. Good body and strong carbonation. Sweet bitter finish. Drinkable. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at the Belgan Cafe, Ramsgate.
Clean golden brown colour with a thin white head. Faint pepper and spice with some obvious Belgian yeasty notes. A hint of cardboard initially settling down to some fairly bland bitterness. Nothing special but clean and drinkable all the same.
