3.13/5 rDev +1%
Pours clear dark golden, two finger white head that disappears quickly, leaving a poor sticky lace and some random traces.
Pretty bland smelling, some grains, some faint Belgian spices, a bit of malty sweetness, some random low fruitiness.
Sweet malts mostly in the taste, a bit syrupy and actually boozy from the start, with a nice butterscotch note, some honey, also marzipan/almond and clove. Faint fruitiness, with a touch of acidic apple, some oranges and a faint hint of apricot. Some nasty grassiness in the finish, with an unclean bitterness and a low metallic note.
Light to medium body, rather fizzy. Almost refreshing if not for the bad notes in the finish, that also ruin the aftertaste.
A close one, but not really there unfortunately. There are some things i like, some not so much, others are simply cringe-worthy. Too bad.

Served from a bottle into Antwerp Beer Passion Weekend 2011 stemware in Antwerp, Belgium in June 2011. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a one finger head of slight cream, decent thickness, and bad retention. Colour is a clear yellow.
Sm: A light aroma of plain dull boring barley. Meh.
T: Purely simple barley with some slight cream. No other notes are notable. Bland. Balanced in its simplicity but poorly built for the style. Dull and boring.
Mf: Smooth and wet, but strangely coarse on the open. Doesn't complement the style, but it works for the beer. That said, it's not a special mouthfeel.
Dr: Pretty crappy. It's drinkable enough but far from worth its price. I certainly wouldn't get it again. A poor offering from Bavik.
