3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Brouwerís Cafť:   Fiery golden, moderate pillowy white head, little to no carbonation, sticky lacing.   Strong and sweet pale bready nose. Its got some alcohol right up front, whoa. Otherwise its a sweet bready flavor with a smidgen more hops than usual.   The slight bitterness actually lends itself well.   Its not cloying like so many others, but the backside yields some strong alcohol notes.   Yeah, this one is not cloying at all, which is a complete surprise given the style, but very welcomed.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   The alcohol dominates the backside.   Perhaps it could use some more sweetness.   Between the alcohol and the soft hops, this one does need to feel a bit heavier with some bready malt goodness.   Otherwise decent, even if you shouldnít smoke during the intake of this beverage.

Draft at big time. Chill hazed darker golden with decent dense had formed by the bartender. Apple an banana phenols with honey wheat cereal grain. Peppery up front, followed by estery banana and apple, light wheat, and plenty of clove throughout. Little rough and the clove just dominates as it warms.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours straw colored with a couple fingers head. Sweet smell. Powerful taste. Hoppy, bitter. Complex. Itís a bit rough, but drinkable. Wouldnít classify it as an abbey style ale. Itís good, but when thereís Cereal Killer and Old Wooly on, there are better options.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark bronze/brass color. Little apparent yeastiness. More reminiscent of an English Strong ale with the strong influence of candi-sugar and mild hop bitterness.

Dark gold color, aroma and appearance nothing special. Candy sugar presence is apparent, but it seems to have a bit of an off-flavor that I canít quite peg. I was a little disappointed in this one--didnít really taste all that Belgian to me.

Hazy golden with decent head. Solid belgian yeast and sweet sugar taste with a bit more hops in the finish than most Grand Cruís. Very good......but I may have had a few too many Decadence IPAís before this:-) Not overly sweet.
