3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cL bottle...thanks Joris!!! Light bodied, straw to golden-colored ale with a small head. The aroma has no sweetness, just some hop aroma. Nicely carbonated and the bitterness comes right through in the flavor. Quite carbonated like a champagne but quite delicious. Very dry on the palate with very little sweetness. It tastes less than 5% ABV. Great beer!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Dan & Joelle (DewBrewer) for sharing this treasure. 33cl. Bottle. Pours a hazy pale. The nose is flowery and kind of pine-like with some bread dough. The flavor has pine, citrus, earth with flowers in the mix as well. Very effervescent and slightly acidic in the finish and just enough bitterness to round it all out. Great beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear golden with a handsome and frothy off-white head leaving a broad curtain of lacework. Lightly spicy aroma. Light and somewhat watery body with spicy accents - white pepper perhaps. Dry - very dry - with a touch of yeast and diacetyl, perhaps a slightly chemical tang. Dry and lightly hoppy finish. Almost as a watered down Orval, but a pleasant session beer indeed. 131206

Bottle. Really beautiful stuff. Hazy pale gold/yellow. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, slightly flowery. First taste is citrus and earthy hop characters. Dusty dry mouthfeel, with some light acidity and bitternes, i could drink this all day, my favourite Westmalle beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at LCRBM 2, Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium
Hazy, yellow-orange body. White creamy head. Excellent lace. Nose of hops (orange, mint freshness). Moderately bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Lightly bitter, lightly sweet finish. Very nice beer, especially for it’s ABV. Very good complexity. Yummie. I’m doubting to become a monk in order to be able to drink this everyday.
