3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass, obtained in a trade with Duffman. Thanks Tony! Pours clear honey-gold, 1-finger thick white head, very spotty lacing. Nose is pineapple, apple cider, light vinegar, some leather, very green apple-ish. Flavours are moderately spicy, nice spun sugar/honey note, that fades to more green apple and candy. Unremarkable.

In a tulip. Pours a nice golden color with a wonderfully thick white head. Smells of apples, alcohol, spices, and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with a dry finish. Tastes of much the same, with a malty sweetness as well. An OK Grand Cru.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear gold. Smells like sweet fruits and some sweet malts. Tastes follows the smell with a sweet fruitiness and a slight earthiness. You can barely taste the 9% alcohol.

Malt , hop and a whiff of apple in the aroma. Hazy yellow. Tightish head. Lots of carbonation giving some blazing acidity akin to champagne. Food friendly for the wild salmond I had with it. Very European.

Pours a hazy orange colour with a bit white head. Aroma of fruits, citrus, yeast, spices, hint of alcohol. Flavour is moderate sugary sweetness. Rather typical Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

330 ml bottle. 24GM. BB 24/07/15. From saveur-biere.com.
9th door of my advent calendar gave me this one...
Cloudy yellow golden colour with a huge fluffy white head.
Belgian yeast, some malt, mild fruitiness and some spices in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is a great deal of yeast, malt, some spices and mild sweet fruitiness. Alcohol is quite clearly present too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: light, hazed shade of yellow & gold with a thick, foamy white head that shows good retention. Aroma has notes of mild wheat (huh?), banana, bready yeast, a touch of spice, & some alcohol. The flavor is classic Belgian pale with some kitchen spices, clove, coriander, banana, a touch of mango, biscuit-like yeast & malt notes; mild honey & pear in the finish. Estery & yeast, but manageable. Alcohol grows strong with time... drink this one quick. Pretty tasty but also pretty powerful.

Drank during the Holy Beer Crusades at the Duck Island in Seattle many many many moons ago. One of the drunkest nights of my life in fact!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Delirium Tap Bar, Brussels, 25 Oct 2013) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with white bread, tropical fruit, grass and honey. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bready malt, tropical fruit, pineapple, a touch of honey and a balanced grassy bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty, with a slight alcohol glow coming through. Quite nice.
