3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Tom at RBESG 2014. It pours hazy gold with suspended particles and small white head. The nose is earthy, brett, funk, apple pie, candy, wood, mild acidity, hay and barnyard. The bitter, acidic, big wood, earth, funk, barnyard, alcohol, vinous, brandy and even more wood with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A bit woody and boozy.... Too much for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow. Fantastic. Brings a liqueur touch. Maybe a little overwhelming on my palate at this point in the evening. Doesn’t really strike me as "Belgians"..a creature unto itself. Hardcore barrel treatment. Tasty, brutal spirit/beer hybrid.
