3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice Belgian strong. On tap at Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Aroma was so so. Mostly fruity with a bit of yeast. Pour was a light gold with a nice 2 finger white head. Taste was sweet and fruity without being over the top. Nice yeast in there with just a hint of alcohol, but nowhere near the 9% says. One of the better Belgian strongs.

Bottle. Huge fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Nice thick lacework. Cloudy golden / amber color with a sparkling appearance. Aroma was very fruity and yeast with other notes being caramel, grain, spice, hint of coriander and citrus. Light wood and hoppy notes as well. Over the palate evidence of alcohol was present. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and a light dry and alcoholic texture. Balanced moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Moderated fruity and spicy light bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2010 Straw-colored and heady, leaving circular splotches. Delightfully aromatic with some ginger flower and lemon rind but perfume and alcohol are present. Soft palate, smooth. Nice but not exceptional, and can be a let-down if you are expecting something more...and yet on its own is quite nice and dry. On re-rate liked it more and upgraded from 3.2

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge white head and little grey-brown beer. There are lots of flowers in the aroma (almost parfym?). Flavour is sour and quite sweet. There is no alcohol in the taste. Carbonation is too much and so palate isn’t pleasant. Little disappoitment.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Sharp Edge Creek House. Mild sweet candy aroma. Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager color and appearance with just an ever so slight haze. Initial taste hit is rather alky. Difficult to enjoy when compared to the regular Ausustijn. Bitter malty alky bite carries thru the session but it is never ’in yer face’. Some mild carbonation. Controlled, above average slight medicinal lingering alky malt finish.
