2.55/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Light amber color, with huge floating chunks. White foam, quickly falling down.
Fruity smell, melon, and alcohol.
Same notes in the taste, a bit less strong, the alcohol, mostly.
Quite banal, but not undrinkable.
The aftertaste is decent, at least. Not too sweet.
Drinkable, no more.

Paid 2 euro for a bottle. Appearance is a slightly orange murky yellow. Not much head, but good lacing. Smells strong of spiced belgian - coriander & the like. Very nice. Tastes almost as good as it smells. Again strong spice, good hop loading heavy alphas and aromatics. Mouthfeel a bit watery, but good carbonation. Excellent drinkability provided you can handle the alcohol.

Clear, golden yellow body with a medium-sized, off-cream head. Smells of honey, licorice, cooked vegetables, with a light Belgian yeast twang. Taste starts out with a sweet and honeyish malt with toasted, bitter edges. Yeasty fruit (banana and pineapple juice) esters peak in a long, warming, bittersweet finish. Medium bodied with a mouthfeel that goes from watery to almost syrupy in the finish. Not bad.
