3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a huge white collapsing head, and murky gold color. Aroma is almost a white beer- nose of sweetness, lemon peel, coriander. Taste spicy and flat, sticky mouthfeel. Certainly get the warm alcohol about midway. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle from Regional – last one! Pours deep golden, white fluffy head which fully dissipates. A good Belgian nose to this one. Very fruity aromas, slightly herbaceous and a hint of alcohol and hops. Flavour is deceptively subdued to begin, with subtle malt sweetness. Then an alcoholic bitterness kicks in and brings some nice herb character with it. Alcohol just shows itself to be involved in the flavour, but reasonably well hidden.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (in NZ). Very lively pour, plenty of carbonation with a huge frothy white head. Sweet and spicy yeasty aroma. Lots of bittering and dry alcohol on the palate. The malt is slightly bready with a champagne-like dry grape finish. Probably one you would prefer to share. Mine seemed to lack the sweetness others refer to, which would have helepd to offset the strong alcohol presense.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy brassy gold with a big lively white head. Aromas of geraniums and straw and spices. Sweet aroma leads into a sweet malty palate. Perfumey herbal character with underlying honey sweetness. Better than I anticipated quite frankly but not one I would return to.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not too much different from the standard 8% Augustijn. A darker gold colour. Minimal head. Rough honey scent. Flavour rough honey, flowers and alcohol with a bit of a bitter rough finish.

Poured a nice hazy golden color with a big white head Aroma was really spicey, and sweet. Flavor wasnt nearly as spicey as aroma, really sweet candy sugar. Covered up the alcohol very well.

Aroma is realy interesting with horse and smell of fresh potatoes going bad. Taste is full bodied with sweetness and typical belgian fruit and yeast tones.
