2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blonde dorée trouble, dépôt en suspension, effervescence moyenne, très peu de mousse. Bien maltée en entrée, amertume moyenne de pamplemousse pour la suite. Et c’est plus ou moins tout. D’une banalité affligeante...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. BB 1/2014. From bierkompass.de.
Dark golden colour with a small creamy off-white head.
Gloomy maltiness, alcohol and quite a lot caramel sweetness in the aroma. Not very promising. Unbalanced mixture of strong sweet maltiness, hoppy bitterness and alcohol. No good at all. Let’s see if the XX is any better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale, golden and brilliant, transparent aspect, with a small and white head. Looks like a champagne, aided by a relatively present carbonation. Its watery texture and low body plays against it, but its interesting mouthfeel is a goal. Moderately complex (or peculiar), it’s fruity, malty and surprisingly well balanced. It fits the concept between Belgian tripel and English bitter. Interesting, but anyway far from the colossal Struise beers.

Bottled. Pours hazy golden in color with a small head. Fruity notes, some hay and iron in aroma. Light
bitterness, sweet ripe garden fruitiness in taste. Feels a bit light perhaps, but then again is quite

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Slight hazy, deep blond ale. Aroma is dry malty with refined flowery hop accents and hints of grapefruits. After several sips, your lips and tong become dryer - nice!!!!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow/blond with bright white head. Nice elements to this. Smooth easy drinking feel of a Belgian blond but with less sweetness and more hop. Nicely bitter.
