Scipio's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Scipio (1273) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a bright and hazy yellowish golden with a medium white head. More sweet aroma contains orange, wheat, apple, banana, and spices. Very Belgainy. The taste is fruity which is balanced by a nice sweetness. It loses a little bit from the aroma. Here we find wheat, orange, banana, and just a touch of orange. Orange and wheat aftertaste is short. Alcohol content is noticed rather quickly. Medium bodied, thick in texture, with soft carbonation. Nothing really stands out with this one to make it really special, but its alright.

BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
12oz bottle into a La Chouffe stemmed tulip glass (just to make it feel at home): 13th Jan 2018 at my daughters in California. Cloudy dull orange body, white foam blanket on top, carbonation trails can be clearly seen rising through the misty brew replenishing the head from below. Yeasty, fruity nose, taste also yeasty and fruity, semi-sweet maltiness balances the hop mini-bitterness and fruit notes, good alcoholic bite to each fruity sip. Dangerously drinkable. Best beer of 2018 so far (yes, I know it's only the 13th Jan, but this is seriously good).

tricksta_p (5346) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Aroma is peppery estery yeast, bready malt, notes of ripe fruits, touch of banana and orange. A hint of alcohol in the finish. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is above medium. Some lovely yeast at work here, good balance and body, a very fine Belgian Strong Blonde.

allfreej (567) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Pours cloudy gold, with a dense off-white head. Decent amount of lace. Nose is estery yeast, melon, and grain. Flavor is well balanced. The sweetness of the grain has just enough taken off of it by the balancing hops. Well carbonated with a medium mouthfeel. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

balloonbuffoon (747) - - OCT 14, 2017
12floz bottle, no date, $3.25 single, tulip glass. A frothy golden ale with the fresh scent of hay, and has an effervescent full body that is also ever so green and grainy. F airily sweet with a sugary alcohol finish, and the end result is an adequate beer.

3.8
TET (3280) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2017
A golden beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has generic europian fruitness, spicyness, some perries and coriander, balanced. Taste has fruitness, spicyness of light peppers, hint of banana. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Great balance which is the best part of this beer. Greatness of Chouffe’s yeast can be noticed.
