  • Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Pours with a wonderful copper colour. The head is frothy, a fingers width and white. Aroma suggests banana and has definite hints of alcohol and some sweet substance. Taste is alright, earthy malts and citrus with a minor plum and raisin taste. Finishes off with some alcohol and a spice bite. Mouthfeel is medium to full with some tingle of carbonation that ends with a semi-dry finish. Not a bad find.

  • De Koninck Blond
    rated 2.8 15 years ago

    Aroma: 5 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 4 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    Clean blond body and some sudsy head but with basically zero retention - gone by the third sip. Aroma is of light malts and apple. Tart apple-like body, reminiscent of a cider with a minor hoppy finish. Very thin, much like the other DeKoninck brews. None are very impressive, but they aren't particularly awful either - average stuff. Not bad to drink but I won't be actively seeking it out.

  • De Koninck Tripel
    rated 3.0 15 years ago

    Aroma: 5 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    Pours with a gold body and some sudsy white cap. I didn't see it stick around for very long, so the retention loses some points. The aroma is good, sweet with slight yeast and honey. Thin and weak mouthfeel. Flavours don't really resemble a Tripel - there is some spice, but otherwise it's a bit more sweet and alot less present with the alcohol. Doesn't quite fit the bill, but if you can get past calling it a tripel, it is quite easy drinking. I'd have it again if I felt the need for sweet.

  • Jacobsen Saaz Blonde
    rated 3.0 15 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    Deep gold colour, some frothy white head off the pour with so-so retention. Sweet aroma with some clove that definitely has saaz hops in it and smells like a simple Belgian ale. I might detect some bad alcohol smell ala paint thinner, but only if I breathe it in too forcefully. Slight carbonation and drying mouthfeel keeps the slightly sweet flavour tame. Hop and caramel flavours permeate through, and finishes with a lingering metallic finish. Drinkable beer for sure, but nothing more.

  • San Miguel Premium Lager
    rated 3.0 15 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6

    Poured a bright yellow colour with lots of sudsy white head. The lacing was poor, as was the retention. A citrus aroma arises from the glass, with some slight hints of light malts. The flavour has some slight citrus tones and a minor hoppy taste. Light bodied and slightly carbonated with a smooth finish with no aftertaste. Standard stuff here. I didn't expect much, and got more than what I originally expected.
