4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into snifter glass. Purchased at Elevated in South Mpls. Mostly golden with a hint of orange. Effervescent. Half finger of white head. Smell is very Belgiany. Floral notes with yeast and some citrus. Taste is heavy alcohol with even a little bit of the back of the throat burn. Hops are there bringing bitterness but also getting a sugary presence. Effervescence seems to carry on even in the aftertaste. More sweet at the end. Very interesting beer. Kind of a blend of a tripel, Belgian pale ale, and champagne.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Had a 2013 release, and it was simply phenominal. Little head, hazy golden-like appearance. Smooth, subtle, and most of all flavoursome to the pallet. Definitely caught up to me QUICK. If you can manage to find one on your local shelves- I highly recommend purchasing it. You will not regret it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Light amber/gold, airy white head. thin lacing. Strong smell of toasted/smoked banana, spice, a bit of peach, and nutty oils. Can sense the alcohol as well. Tastes of banana, buttered toast, a bit of cinnamon. A faint saucy barbeque/smokey taste as well, but that’s probably just me. Pretty well balanced, but feels a bit light for a belgian. Overall pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep gold pour, decent white head, not much lace. Malt, soft fruit, and alcohol on the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is vanilla, apricot and medium roasted malt. Finish is dry and a little boozy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is slight chocolate or of vegetables. The appearance is a murky gold with a thin white head. The taste is slight and sweet after taste. Could have been better, but still overall nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 Oz bottle pour at Brouwers. 2007 vintage. Pours a semi cloudy golden orange color with a sweet and spicy apple juice/cider aroma. Sweet and spice flavor as well, with a mellow malt, fruit, and a smooth finish. Awesome stuff.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours good with a off white head. Taste Belgian yeast, sweet, apricots. I thought this was ok. I would not drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber, frothy beige head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is slightly bittered caramel malt that moves through the palate without incident to a finish that continues the status quo for a long while. Strong, and some alcohol shows as the taste fades, but, still seems one-note. Doesn’t earn the 9% abv.
