2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a pale hazy yellow beer with a creamy white head. Lively carbonation. A lot of sediment. The nose is medicinal with notes of honey, oranges, juniper berries, cloves and marzipan. A hint of pumpkin. Extremely distinctable and strong. A huge amount of cloves in the taste. Notes of celery. Yeasty and acidic. Interesting. Not at all enjoyable though. Woody. Decent bitterness. Remarkably "christmassy". Strange. Plenty of character but not enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours orange golden and cloudy. The head is rather minimal. A great complex aroma, a lot of acidity, lemony with orange zest and spices. Geuze character. The sour lemony and orange zest flavours find balancing honey sweetness. An outstanding beer!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of mgermani: Poured a medium yellow color ale with a pure white bubbly head with average retention but no lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt is not the most interesting. Taste is a mix between some light wheat malt notes with no spices really discernable and some traces of sourness. Full body with some limited filtration and some medium carbonation. Definitely not the best beer fro this usually fine brewery.

Bottled. Yellow clearly color, rather hazy with discreet bubbly aspect. Adherent and compact head. Rather acidulous aroma with notes of lemon and damnpen cereals. Much lively and coolness taste, decidedly sourly and acidulous with a light bitterish final. A lot watery end with insufficient resistance.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wondered what this was when I had it. BB 2005, old dirty bottle. Unclear yellow with no head. Sour white wine aroma. Vinous vinegar taste. Fruits (apple) & honey are traced. Acidic flavor & watery body! Might have been infected?
