3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Never before have I had a beer that smelled of....stewed strawberries. But believe me, that’s the case here. So if you never grasped the concept of fruity esters in an ale, then try this one, and you’ll understand.
Neat amber colour with a huge head, that never vanishes completely. Unfiltered and hence hazy. Fresh and....fruity with notes of vanilla in the aroma. Rather unique flavour - if not exactly of stewed strawberries - soft, malty with a discreet, dry bitterness. lovely. 151201

500 ml bottle. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Decent white head. Lager-like aroma with notes of flowers, hay and honey. Flavour is sourish and thin with some citussy notes. Short sourish aftertaste with metallic notes. Disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Very hazy amber color with a small head and no lace. Fruity, yeasty, a bit sour leather aroma with toffee hints. Sourish, wheaty and fruity, spicy and flowery flavor with lightly roasted malt. Dryish, quite refreshing, light to medium-bodied palate with lemonadeish carbonation. An interesting, well-balanced but quite thin and bubbly "Orval lite". Not bad, but not quite spectacular.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (BB 03/2005)
Hazy orange with small white head. Aroma is fruity with aromatic hops and hints of horseblanket, kind of Orval-like. Well-balanced, a bit too light bodied with fruity hoppyness and hints of honey. Soft hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Flavor is similar to English bitters. Propably fresh 6% was quite excellent, this version is only average.
