2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I first tasted this beer on Christmas day, when I received it as part of a subScription gift box. When poured you get a clear golden colour with a white, foamy head. Aroma was not as sharp as I expected but there is definitely a hint of liquorice to the nose. The taste is sweet and here you do get the liquorice as well as an alcohol taste. Not unpleasant but not what I expected. The 9% does not really shine through, but all in all a pleasant change. Worth a try if you get the opportunity.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Pours a darkish red/brown. Aromas of spice, coriander, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol taste to it, mixed with a nice smokey dark fruit. Also has strong hints of spice and orange.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Brouwerís Cafť:   Bright straw, lively carbonation, thin to moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing.   This sure is a light Grand Cru.   Smells like a damn pear, not the skin but the white bits.   This has very little to do with a Grand Cru.   Feels more like a Tripel crossed with a Blonde.   Hmmm, still tasty just not what I was expecting.   Wow, yeah, this one is really fruity with a heavy emphasis on Pear.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean, fruity, and sweet on the finish.   Totally not what I would have expected.   Blonde + Triple does not uqual a Grand Cru.   Enjoyed it tho.

Pours a clear amber/golden colour with normal size head and little carbonation.
The smell to this is not very appealing to say the least....
I had to force myself to finish it, the taste is okay, but the smell doesnít really sell itself.

An interesting beer. Much like a poor equivilant to Duvel. A very odd aroma and a sharp bitter maybe sour taste of caramel and raisins. However a very odd taste. Itís not a great beer at all iím afraid. Really let down by tis despite the wonderful picture. It looks amazing but tastes off. I donít think Iíd be buying this in a hurry. I feel let down.

Pours a clear golden color with a white, foamy head. Aroma is a bit sharp and of grains, yeast, licorice and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet and a bit bitter and of licorice, but has a sharp and unpleasant alcohol presence. Decent bitter lingering finish. Well carbonated.

On tap at Novare Res. Pours a golden cloudy color with a one finger white head. Aroma is sweet malty, with a clean caramelly scent. Taste is nice, crisp, sweet, but not cloying. Lots of flavor, but none of itís annoying. Itís a good beer to drink a lot of, nothing in here gets old on the taste buds :)

18th May 2008. Crisp fizzy beer with a champagne like snap and dryness. Itís clean with a nice mild brandyish malt in the mid and the finish.
