2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL c&c. Clear golden pour with larger white foam. Okay retention with minimal lacing. Nose is skunky thanks to the green bottle. Yellow apple, sugar, esters, old rotting banana. Taste is grassy, watery, soapy. Not much there. Seltzer palate. Disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 750 ml bottle after 19 months of cellaring, which is about year longer than intended for this "biere de garde."
Clear bright yellow-gold with a huge white head, excellent lacing and large sediment pieces in the bottom of the glass.
Aroma of grass, grain, yeast and spice.
Taste of apples, grain, yeast, light fruit and a little earthiness.
Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml - pours deep gold with plenty of white head. Nose is floral and basement-y. Flavor adds caramel and the typical Unibroue yeast aftertaste. Slightly spicy, but still a blonde ale. Sweet and mildly bitter. the best I could to snub all of those drinking in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Pour la gloire de la patrie.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice bright golden amber color. Pretty clear, but I can see a lot of floaties in the bottle. Big off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is full of sweet pale grain flavor. Lots of fruit. Pears, apples, grapes, apricots, dates. Mild herbal, grassy hops. A faint medicinal note. Just tons of pilsner malt favor. Taste is similar. It starts sweet with that fresh, pale malt flavor but finishes dry with some funk and mild hop bitterness. More light fruitiness, big pear note particularly. Some musty apple/grape skin flavor and feel. Feel is light but full. There’s some prickly carbonation but it’s generally quite smooth due to the full body. Very easy to drink. Goes well with some soft goat cheese. Fun to find a nice example of the style.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow color with white head and suspended sediment. Yeasty, hay aromas. Yeasty, malty, sediment, slightly skunked flavor. Alright.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at beers of the world. Aroma of more skunky pilsner. Biscuit and fried eggs. Pours blonde with a very large head. Taste is very light with yeasty pilsner notes and a champagne quality. Overall very offensive skunk to this one. I am not a fan.
