Blond Belgians in the glass, Part III
Here you go with the last part of this row, part III.
It's very fruity in the smell, peach, exotical fruits, some malty aromas in the background and a mild presence of hops. Very fruity taste at the very beginning, but not necessarily sweet and a very pleasant mellowness in the finish. Well-balanced and definetly not showing that it's an ABV of 9 %.. Very interesting taste, I like this. Thumbs up!
Notes of bitter orange in the nose with a touch of fine yeast, sweet at first appearance but also spicy (but without exaggeration). The body is silky, smooth finish and provides an interesting drought but in the end just an average beer.
Smells of sweet malt, apple skins, grape juice, some yeast. When drinkin it you get a taste of grape juice, apple rinds, sweet malt, and some spices and yeast. A very nice balance of fruitiness and malt. Again: the alcohol is embedded well. not in the foreground, even with an ABV of 9 %.
