3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted in the original "Abbaye d’Aulne Ambrée sur lie" version, but it’s the same beer. Off-white, initally thick but irregular and quickly diminishing head, colour a darkish amber, tending to copper, misty. Aroma primarily malty, in a caramel- and nutty kind of way, accompanied by hints of yeast, wood, apple, grapefruit and cloves; taste subduedly, dryishly fruity on a nutty maltiness, strong carbonisation in the beginning, a bit grainy in the finish, with herbal hop bitterishness. Perhaps somewhat reminiscent of a german Alt?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Hazy amber color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sweet . Don’t get anything else really, except for it being totally overcarbonated. Average body, fizzy high carbonation. Don’t really like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Delirium Monasterium, Brussels, 21 Oct 2012) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, slightly roasted nose with notes of dark fruit, toast, orange peel and dried fruit. Malty taste with caramel, toasty malt, gentle flavours of orange and a mild spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Quite nice.
