2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle, 37.5cl, brewed by Hof ten Dormaal says the label) Hazy, golden colour with a blond and huge foamy head. Dusty and mildly bready malty aroma with notes of wheat and wort, as well as fruity esters of banana and citrus. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Juicy malty and slightly wheaty taste with fruity notes of banana, peach and a tinge of citrus, accompanied by yeasty spice; sweet and slightly sticky finish. Smells and tastes a bit unripe. 01.IX.13

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head fast gone over hazy orange-golden beer. Citrus, orange, leafy and yeasty. Smells... unfinished. Spicy-yeasty main flavour, some indefinite yeastesters. Slick, medium bodied, yeast-filled, well-carbonated feel. Needs lagering, lagering... before leaving the brewery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
37.5cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of Tinus.
Arôme est herbacé avec ce côté cour de ferme et un malt discret dans un style très belge.
Palais reste vraiment dans le style belge montrant ce côté typique de houblons nobles; citronné moyen, pointe d’épice et coriandre qui peine à mettre la bière en évidence. final, on s’ennuie, rien de bien surprenant.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thx. to Martinus for this one another one added to my Hof ten Dormaal collection. 375 ml. green bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Opaque yellow with a white head. Nose showcase the typical home-grown barley & hop character of HtD with their atypical hops winning the show mixed with a lot of herbs & coriander. Taste is sweet, milk, lots of spices, coriander, cleaning agents, their home-grown hop & barley showing here. Medium hazy, bodied, I believe that I was supposed to dislike this one… meh it is not bad & enjoyable albeit not their best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl Bottle as Soixante-Neuf. Slightly hazy golden colour, thin white head. Aroma of hay, malts, flour, floral, light fruity and yeasty. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, floral, some honey, relatively dry, light spicy, coreander, yeast, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied. OK, but very generic Belgian Blonde. If it were a bit less sweet it’d be a lot better imho.
