4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in the Bierkamer. Dark blond colour. Sweet aroma and taste (sweet malts and fruits). Unlike in some other stong beers, alcohol is not predominantly present.
I had a second one at home, but served it to cold. I left it for a while to warm up a little. The closer it got to room temperature, the more I enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s a hazy orange with a billowy white head. Very sweet and fruity in the nose with some spiciness from the hops. I’m not picking up any mustard seed aroma.
Boozy and sweet but a strident spicy hoppiness (Challenger and East Kent Goldings according to the label) give it some balance. I’m not sure I would notice the mustard seed flavors if I didn’t know they were there but underneath the hops is a distinct bitterness of the mustard seed. Sticky body with a strong lingering hoppiness with a hint of mustard in the finish. Strong hoppy aftertaste.
The mustard is not as pronounced but like Wostyntje, it makes it work.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Apparence or brumeuse avec un beau collet mousseux blanc mat. Aromes de caramel, moutarde, thym, essence de banane, beurre et mais en creme. Tres bonne amertume, sensation lactique, grannuleuse avec une bonne finition sucrée. Saveurs additionel de poires, bananes, tangerine, zeste d’orange. Sensation d’alcool en ce réchauffant. Relativement impressionante. Seule coté négatif: Craie en bouche...
