3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from the bottle, on 13/11/2012.
Pours very hazy, muddy color with a proper head.
Aroma is malty&caramely sweet upfront, not very intense, with interesting grassy/flowery subnotes and a honey character.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, low carbonated.
Taste is ok, not too complex. strangely tart in the end,not very pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy amber pour with a white head. Fruity esters on the nose with a lot of apple, cider, and pear notes. A lot of sweet malt, some citrus peel, and a light floral note. The flavor is quite sweet and malt forward with a ton of bread and some toast. Mild grass, a lot of citrus, and some apple cider. Maybe a touch of sugar sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy, light brown color. Aroma does not tell me much; some sweetness (sugar)? Pretty creamy on the palate, sweet and bitter. Finish is mainly bitterness, but not very long. Hard to say much else, but this really wasn’t too shabby. Could drink several of these in a row, I think.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. An almost clear one, golden-orange in color and with a dense, light beige head of moderate size. A quite subtle aroma and flavor in this one, but quite pleasant. The aroma is syrupy and fruity, lightly peachy. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, but mostly it’s fruity and sugary, leading to a bitter finish. Medium to full body, with appropriate levels of carbonation. Overall, lacking on most things this one, but it slides down the throat quite easily. 120511

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Little inspiration to speak of here. all around a rather bland and below average example of a Belgian ale. The intense CO2 was the most dominant feature in this forgettable little number.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper/ruby with a thick, lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some caramel and pale malts, and a little floral and bitter hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent Belgian beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some honey sweetness tempered by malty fullness and earth. Also some leathery notes and metallic mineral flavors, with a touch of spice. I didn’t notice too much of an aroma beyond a hint of sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Geerts in Oostakker. It may just have been this bottle (though I could taste no flaws) but was not the best of SB. Terms like home-brew came to mind.
