3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling golden, huge fluffy head. Sourish nose, some wheat, salty fino sherry, apple and alcohol. Overly alcoholic and a bit sour flavor. Not the greatest to an empty stomach. Yeast adds a spicy touch, and disguises most of the alcohol. Dry finish, little bittering hops. Medium bodied, strongly carbonated mouthfeel. Nose is nice, flavor mostly booze.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden yellow, with a thin but lasting white head. Sweet and pleasant aroma of malts and citrus fruits. Foamy mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet and fruity in the beginning but turns dry and bitter towards the finish. The taste of alcohol is also present.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
06/06 0.33 l bottle @ Hopdevil, Zagreb. This poured pale yellow, slightly murky body with medium head. Sourish aroma of plums, yeap weird, hops are pronounced in lemony and grassy forms. Quite nice, pleasant flavor, but unfortunately thin bodied. Sweetish, with notes of lemon and orange, but bitter and dry as well. Alcohol is perfectly hidden, I couldn’t believe that I drink 9% ABV. Finish is pretty short. Cute subtle beer, although I more liked regular Augustijn.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This has a clear sherry taste to it--which gives it a real personality distinct from its big sister Augustijn or other tripel-style brews. Nutty aftertaste balancing a mild but persistent fruitiness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy, light golden yellow with white, big bubbly head. Head is obviously thicker in the center. Sweet, malty, wheaty, lemony aroma. Alcohol comes through quite clearly. Lemony and yeasty flavor and finally alcohol comes too heavily through. Also some fruityness. Palate is medium-bodied and foamy and softly carbonated.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear dark yellow colored beer, with a small foamy head. The aroma is strong, a lot of alcohol and grassy. The taste is bittersweet, with a little fruit. Also some liquorice. It’s not bad, but it’s not my favorite

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with average carbonation and a huge white frothy head. Good hoppy aroma with herbal, honeyish, and spicy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste is sharp and dominated by hoppiness. It lacks complexity but ends with a long bitter/dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gently sour nose with flowery citrus. Pours very cloudy with a very firm, fluffy head. Flavour starts lemonadey but quickly develops an almost lambic tartness. Balanced by some cinnamon and spice, finally giving way to a long bitter finish.
