3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club. Typical belgian triple notes, but after 5 years (bb 2012) the aroma hops is obviously gone. Mostly an aged Tempete, but it held up quite well without developing anything spectacular. Quite smooth and round though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Parallel with the classic Tempête, bb 2012-04
Cloudy blond color, lighter than the Tempête; generous head. The aroma is delicate, with some yeast, paper and hay; and not necessarily traces of the promised hop. Correct body strength, light malt flavor, quite evident yeast character, with a spicy side; there is also a light sourness that may become infection later, but at the moment helps the drinkability.
Pleasant, but with some homebrewing flaws.
