3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pears apricot and hay are still discernable beneath the sherry-like oxidation and corked character of the nose. Hazy copper body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to ring with some lacing. Pears, brown sugar, marzipan, eath and haylike flavours are complemented by the sherry and madeira notes of oxidation. Medium light body with moderately lively carbonation. Bottle (1996 vintage) sampled at DenverLogan’s post GABF 2005 wrap-up. Thanks for sharing Eyedrinkale!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Muscat grape with yeast aroma. Medium brown liquid. Fine carbonation the rises quickley from the center of the glass. Taste is a lightly spiced, malty brew.
Nice woodsy taste. Dry finish. If I had to describe this beer to a person who has has many Belgian beers, a perfect deScription is "Abbey Des Rocs Light"
