2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, RBESG Pub Crawl, August 2005. Pretty uneventful for a Belgian. Amber coloured. Scant aroma. Vaguely grainy flavour. Thin body. Not much happening at all. Reminded me of De Ryck "Special". Inoffensive but rather dull and not a little boring.

hazy amber colour and a stable little head; bready and fruity aroma (lychees); at best medium-bodied; some sweetness followed by a sharp and rather aggressive bitterness; dry finish where bready and fruity notes can be met again - ambitious-less

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden ale with a thin white head. Grassy and peppery aroma, a bit unpleasant. The resinous grass stays in mouth, with a bit of cattiness and light hops. Very thin. Mildly interesting. Bought at Delhaize, Brussels, April 2005.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Slightly hazy reddish amber color with a small, fading head. Toffee-yeasty-caramely-hoppy aroma, something remotely like Orval - although sweeter and not nearly as complex or strong. Bitter, flowery-hoppy, slightly sweet flavor with some toffeeish maltiness. A bit cardboardy and dull, but ok. Light to medium-bodied palate with slightly fizzy-foamy carbonation. The aroma is nice, but there’s not much else going on.

25 cl bottle, bbe Oct 06. Dark amber (reminds of a dark whisky), clear, some bubbles, weak frothy head. Aroma of a watery pils, some hops, sweetish. Taste: sweetish-neutral, grainy with honeyish notes, light hoppy aftertaste. Medium body, some tickling on the palate, refreshing mouthfeel.
