2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
December 2007, from BA: Brown 33cl bottle, best before? Not sure, so drank both the bottles I had, this review is a combination of those beers.
Poured into a Corsendonk tulip glass it has a small white head that soon sinks down into a scummy looking wisp. The body of the beer is an orange cloudy, light amber colour, not very appetizing really.
The aroma was of sweet and sour fruits, pineapple and citrus together, with the sweeter smells winning the battle.
Fruit juice with a kick, strange mix of flavours, couldn’t pick a true taste comparison, not unpleasant though.
Fairly thin in the mouth, plenty of life but something missing in action.
Didn’t really know what to make of this beer, I enjoyed the first one more than the second, which is unusual for me, as i said earlier, something missing for me.

330ml Bottle - Hazy golden with a foamy head. Grain, wort and honey in the aroma. Grain, porridge oats and honey can be detected in the bready taste. Interesting but I am not familiar enough with flax to discern it in this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh Tap pour@the unfortunately named Rock Circus, Gent (rename suggestion: Hop Circus). Tastes like a diluted Hommelbier with less Poperinge kick, the same clean, but not really bright hoppiness and a dusty honey malt base with some industrial white pepper, cardboard, meadow pollens. Very lacklustre, also regarding the pollen yeast profile, old school Belgian session ale overall that I would like to see replaced by bright and lower ABV representatives of the style like De La Senne. This bar seems to have 20+ taps of those...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Derivative of Het Kapittel Blond, possibly even the same beer, something which requires further investigation. I never tasted them side by side so I have to limit myself here to a description of Vlasbier as such. Intended to accompany Vlaskaas, this has an off-white, sticky, thick and moussy head and a peach blonde colour, cloudy and becoming almost brownish with deposit (mostly dead yeast - the tasted sample was 5 years old). Fruity aroma, pineapple, orange, pear, lemon zest, honey, pepper, ginger and cardboard as a result of ageing. Soft fruity taste, slight citrus freshness but probably more so in a young sample, honeyish, slick malt sweetness, sourish accent, smooth finish with low hop bitterness and warming alcohol (a bit too apparent for a beer of 6.5% ABV); I assume the hops had deteriorated a bit after five years. Still enjoyable, though.

Bottle from the butchery . Apparently , made for the combo with the cheese ( Vlaskaas ) The beer itself is rather stale , common, blonde beer. Not imressed . For the curious , the cheese was likewise ..
