3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Antwaerps Bierhuiske, Antwerpen, 19 July 2012) Hazy amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with orange, caramel and spicy hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange, dried apricots, caramel and a generous spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a slight sweetness. Nice one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed orange, amber pour with a white head. a fair bit of banana ester to the nose along with some orange peel and apricot fruitiness. A good malt and sugar sweetness and a lot of sugar. There is a lot of caramel and sugar sweetness to the palate, too. A fair amount of banana and tons of apricot fruit flavor. A definite alcohol presence, however.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Looks pretty nice. Clear golden/amber color, some white, fluffy foam that disappears rather quickly. Smells sweet and some alcohol. Stretching my imagination a bit, I might have noticed some sour apple (yeah, right). Smooth on the palate. Flavors are malty sweetness and a little bit bitter in the end. Regrettably, also some less enjoyable alcohol flavor. Overall, a decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. (Notes says Motueka hops) It’s an unclear, golden-orange beer with a beige finger-thick size. The aroma is a bit sugary, with peach notes, fruit syrup and some peppery, spiced notes. It’s dry and well carbonated, with sweetness and a nice peppery touch. Peaches and bitterness too, finishing sweet, fruity and bitter. A bit on the sweet side I think, but tasteful anyway. 120511

Bottle from the school house. I liked the first Westoek and this just builds on the idea - more flavors and more complexity. Nice.

@ACBF 2011. Nice hops throughout the aroma and sip. I like this one better than the first!

I’m not gonna write any pretentious tasting notes about this beer. It looks good, it smells good and it tastes good. That’s a good beer in my book.
