2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours unappealingly pale. A pretty dry palate with just some citrus notes to break that up. Disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy all around; phenols in the aroma, sugar and sour in the flavor moderately, some pepper, yeasty beer, sharp. I kind of used the beer at the end as a real swisher to see what would happen and my mouth got really spicy. Lots of lacing man. Spicy yeasty - again - sticks with you and lays it on heavy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (some random bar, Bruges)
6 Sweet perfumey malts.
3 Mid gold, healthy persistent head
6 Lovely soft perfumey malts and hops. Quite clear real hops, but still very malted
3 If it wasn’t for the residual sugars, this would have a thin palate, but it does have carbonation that fits well with that level of sweetness. Finish fairly crisp, and with fresh green hops.
13- Very easy drinker. A hoppier version of Leffe, say.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice solid head, not too much of it, and a very bright yellow with some good carbonation. Aroma of hops, coriander, grains. Taste is mostly hops with a bit of tinniness, grassy notes. Very dry finish. It’s a very good blonde.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours with a average sized white foamy head over a clear gold body. Smells of spices (corianader seed) and tropical fruits (passionfruit, pawpaw). Tastes of honey, spices and tropical fruit with a sweet body, but a slightly bitter toasty finish. Medium bodied.
