2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle, pours a clear deep yellow with a very large head. The smell is spice, toasted malt, yeast. The taste is very spicy, some yeast, fairly sweet light malt ending spicy and a bit dry. Light on body with active carbonation. This one is a bit sweet and not particularily to my liking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initial aroma was slightly woody with a banana and clove follow through. Colour is light golden with a good and lasting creamy head. Sweat and sharp on the palette with a strong phenolic presence. There is a slight medicinal finish to the bittering which I did not like.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Waitrose at Gloucster Road. Pours light, bright gold with a foamy/fizzy white head. Aroma of yeast, spice, herb. Med + body - likely due to the impressive carbonation. Flavor is bubble gum, anise, yeast/spice, but no identifiable fruit ester. Maybe the flavors aren’t particularly strong, but they are hard to ignore. Think there’s a phenolic aspect towards the finish. Nothing wrong here, it’s just that the flavor is a bit off the Belgian median. Works.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 330ml. A golden colour with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, clove and a little citrus. Flavour is sweet, over carbonated, a little sour, some spicy hop notes. Disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Live rate on 23rd Feb 2015: not a big fan of Du Bocq brews usually, but always fair in my scoring. 33cl dumpy bottle: BBD 22rd Apr 2016, poured into a Duvel glass and shared with no one. Huge (Duvel like) white head on top of a slightly hazed golden body, carbonation bubbles rising through the beer. The nose is on the spicy side with a mild orange trace and a yeasty feel. The taste is similar with a good bitter bite to the whole thing: a lot better than I was expecting to be honest. Credit where credit is due, this is a fine Belgian Blonde and would hold it’s own against many of the ’upper echelon’ brews within that sub-style. I would have no problem offering this to guests during a Belgian tasting evening.
