3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is fruity with notes of yeast and spice. Flavor is medium sweet fruit, orange, coriander, yeast, with a warming alcoholic finish. Lots of fine carbonation that prickles the tongue somewhat unpleasantly.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with big head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of rubber,ginger, toasted malts, and light lemons. Flavors of banana chips, resin, spice, earth, and rubber. Sharp and unique but the rubber notes are a major negative.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(tasted side by site with augustijn blond) pours almost clear bright yellow with a frothy and creamy white head, very good retention and lacing. chewy and doughy honeyed malts, bready, floral, spicy and yeasty - ginger and honey. a tad too sweet and boozy. bright carbonation, medium body - oily, very nice grassy-spicy finish. from my standpoint, we’re not far from a triple. whatever.. quite nice brew, but slightly inferior than grand cru.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In this beer hop plays the lead role. Aroma and taste carries the signature of hop. Floral and not to bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From stubby bottle into Chimay goblet, 330ml. Pours a cloudy wheaty yellow, with a light ring of foam that dissipates rather quickly. Some fine sediment. Pleasant floral aroma. Fruity, herbal flavour with a hint of a sour ale? but not unpleasant to the palate. Deceiving in regards to its listed alcohol punch.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy white wine-y yellow with high carbonation with diminishing wire bubbly head. Aroma is of bread hops; grains. Tart start, stingy. high carbonation into yeast. Background of grapes? Pretty ok definitely doesn’t taste like 9%.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours medium hazy gold with thick long lasting head, lotsa lacing. Has a lovely floral aroma. Creamy. Citrus flavors and similar to the blond 7.5% lots more alcohol flavor. Champaign like quality. Still not as good as Duvel. Surprisingly easy drinking considering the alcohol content.
