3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a wine store near the little park south of Republique. Pours orange tinged gold with a white head. Aroma seems fresh and fruity. Med body at least. Flavor is sort of imperial pale lager, but arguably with a little bit of yeast/spice. And some light fruits. Flavor isn’t strong, but I guess the ABV renders it strangely satisfying. Arguably a Belgian Strong Ale that’s a little light on the yeast/spice.

The main focus of this beer seems to be on the bottle. It has a certain spiciness and alcohol aroma to it.

Golden color. White foam. But not so long. It smells malty and sweet. In the mouth caramel and little bit honey. I like this beer!

Kommt in einer eleganten mattschwartzen Flasche daher. Schöne Farbe netter Schaum. Im Geschmack eher leicht besonders wenn man bedenkt dass es 8.5 % hat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Jungle Jim’s International Beer Fest. Bottle described as "biere blond", listed as 8.5% ABV). Clear golden color. Thin, slightly off-white head. Leaves good thicker full sheets of lace. Biscuity breadiness, some lemon citrus, mild spiciness. Mild burnt sugars. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, lighter bitter, mild warmth to it. Pretty solid, pleasant belgian golden strong ale. Just a touch of dry chalkiness to the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cL. bb 08 31 17. Hazy golden amber body has a medium level of activity that supports a thin creamy disc of foam. Mild nose of sourish banana bread and caramel with some toasted walnut. Flavor begins the same, then shows some earth-spiced apple and light citrus. Finish has a woody stem-like bitter and a bit of shellac. Medium body has a pleasantly smooth medium carbonation and a decent balance. I think this is supposed to be a Bier de Garde rather than Imperial Pils as currently listed; it definitely seems to have an ale yeast presence.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dorada, miel. Mínimamente turbia. Un par de dedos de espuma que deja una película. Aroma escaso. En boca sabor predominante de miel, dulce, textura oleosa, y final licórico. Alcohol no muy presente en el trago... Pero sí en el post-trago. Como copa después de cenar no esta mal, aunque poco equilibrada.
