3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The first half of this bottle I didn’t like, then I guess it grew on me a little. Hazy brown color, large pitted tan head. Aroma was soft banana and misc fruits. Flavor similar, leading toward a semi-dry cocoa finish that preserved a hint of banana, giving the impression that you might have eaten a chocolate covered banana sometime in the recent past. But then the drying finish got swallowed up by an overly bitter hoppy finish that clashed dramatically. This was the worst part, and the part I adapted to in the 2nd half of the bottle. Soft fluffy palate

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice sweet caramel aroma with dark fruit notes and clove. Pours reddish amber with a decent off white head. Taste is strong caramel to start with a very sweet dark fruit finish with a hint of clove. The flavors meld wonderfully making this an great Dubbel-style beer.

I bought 2 bottles of this at 4.99 per thinking I could get more beer (Belgian abbey) for the buck. The 1st bottle was the funkiest wasabi spiked garbage I’ve had in a while. I was going to trash the brew masters reputation thoroughly. I opened the second bottle today and it was quite different. Still that indescribable wasabi-sour funk but not as prevalent. Appearance and pour are nice but that sour weirdness is a bit disconcerting. Now as it warms a bit the wasabi spike has diminished and its more of a sour apple. I’m going to the store now get a couple St Bernardus Abt12s

Bottled, obtained in new Orleans; the land of crappy beers. This is by far the best beer I can get in a liquor store. Pours amber hue with beige head, it has aroma of hop and sweet malt. Slightly sweet but not cloying. A life saver in new Orleans.

Bottle. This is a pretty lack luster brew in a fancy bottle. I would give it a miss.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in New Orleans with Bobby and Lex. Pours a hazy amber with a lasting white head. Fizzy belgian spices are in the nose. Taste is slightly creamy, but very generic. Some cereal notes are there and the alcohol is well hidden.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy light tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a semi-transparent copper brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was Vienna malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting caramel hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet Vienna malt mild red malt mild hops caramel and breads. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
