3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange beer with a thin white head that stays around the rim. Aromas of peaches, apricots and other light fruits. Flavor is the same light fruits and some decent carbonation but it doesn’t pack the punch I remember. Even with saying that, the first time I had this was when I was 21, so my palate has changed immensely since then, but this is still an exceptional brew. They call it a Belgian strong but it seems to more of just an American strong. Nothing wrong with that though, you know good stuff when you drink it.

Nice big beer that has a nose of sweet fruit. Taste is sugary with a little but of acidity on the finish but smooth and very enjoyable.

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.

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.

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.
