M: Creamy with a medium carbination. laeves a surapy finish.

Got it from Belgium. Bottle 0,33l.

A - Really nice orange color,low carbonation,almost no foam. One finger at first,but quick settled.
S - Almost nothing. Some pale lager smell.
T/M - Taste is much better. Lots of bitter honey aftertaste aroma. Medium carbonation. Some spices.

O - Untypical Belgian Ale,at least for me. Didn't expect so ordinary and low aromatic beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

From a 330 ml bottle (label says 41463) into a tulip.

A-A normal pour produces about one and one-half fingers of off-white head. The head drops quickly to a cap, but cap stays around for two minutes (maybe more) and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. The beer is light-golden/orange and nearly clear. There is some visible carbonation in there.

S-The aroma is moderately strong, but the Euro hops have a bit of skunkiness to them and the result is Euro lager-like. There is some also slightly sweet fruit like apple, but main flavor is pale malt and toasted grain. I get just a hint of Belgian yeast, but very little banana or clove or other typical "Belgian" flavors. l

T-The taste is pretty similar to the smell. There is just a bit of sweet, lightly tart fruit (apples mostly) to balance the dull, almost metallic pale malts and vague hops. The finish has a bit of bitterness with dry-straw hop flavors. There is just a slight hit of Belgian yeast on the mid-palate, but very little else going on.

M-The feel is light to medium in heft with a good amount of carbonation. This is quite crisp for a Belgian beer.

O-Aside from Aged Pale, I have really struggled to enjoy the Bavik beers. This one strays dangerously close to looking, smelling, tasting, and feeling like a Jupiler. The flavor is assertive, but the individual flavors do not mesh well and the result feels a bit like a cheap lager. Oh well.

3.21/5  rDev -8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours golden straw with foamy white head that quickly settles. Effervescent.
Aroma is wheat-like and slightly bready.
Leather and wood notes in the taste. Slight banana in the middle.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied with carbonation tingle.
Overall: Okay. It balances out as it warms … but woodsy bitterness dominates.
