3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wrote this note down as just Wout, but I’m guessing this is it. Slightly hazy yellow, active head with little staying power. Great aromatic character, it’s like a classic perfumy Belgian golden, minus the sharp floral pollen. Honey, gentle hops, with a consistently soured on the edges, delicate and complex for sour fans, gentle enough to convert.

The taste of this one was more complex than its slightly disappointing smell, which was of malts, sugars and vanilla. The taste included a slight orange flavor, not really bitter but a bit of a spicy taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Licorice, jasmine and milky aroma. Light hazy, amber colour, yellowish head, fair lace. Sweet, fruity, light sourness, light bitter. Sticky mouth feel. Bit too sweet, pretty boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mildly hazy with a thick cream head--very creamy. Nice, lively carbonation. Pleasant, refined woody sourness in the nose, along with a prick of yeast. Creamy body, with an enjoyable degree of refined yeastiness. Yeasty and woody sourness rounding out the flavor profile. A well-crafted Belgian ale, that showcases a good yeast character that is welcomely complicated by pinches of wood and sourness. Moderately complex and balanced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is very odd. Notes of tart lacto yogurt kind of thing along with spicy Belgian yeast and some sweet fruity notes. The odd thing is that this sounds good on paper, but it didn’t actually work. In a way it smelled like funky feet and sweet Belgian yeast. Not all that good. Poured orange with a thin non lasting head. Somewhat sweet and fruity with lactic tartness underneath. Thin and with a somewhat unpleasant mouth feel. I expected a lot more from this one, but I guess it is what it is. Oh well.
