3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very explosive beer. The color is hazy orange with some sediment of yeast floating around, and a huge whipped cream off-white head. The aroma is sweet spicy and fruity - I pick up coriander, yeast, peaches, and oranges. The flavor is sweet and very fruity, but also spicy, with the spiciness balancing the sweetness well. It has notes of oranges, cloves, citrus, and cardemome. The mouthfeel is very carbonated and the end very dry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 (Bottle 75 cl) Very beautiful amber, with an exceptionally huge, rocky head. Some haze. Very high in carbonation (as with most Blaugies beers) and hence rather quenching. Spicy almost herbal notes in there on a malty background. Has some of the fustiness so often found in artisanal Belgians - it’s very much either/or if you like it. Rather bitter finish. 280597

Bottle (from thebelgianbeershop.com). Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour with mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, earthy with some slight notes of berries and alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance. Leaves a nice earthy/spicy/fruity aftertaste with some slight warming alcohol as well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy blond color. Malty aroma, good malty taste and the typical Belgian hops. A classic Belgian Stgrong Ale, very good, showing at the end a light liquorice character.

Deep copper color with an enormous white head that melts gradually and leaves wonderful lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel and licorice. Flavor has good malts, caramel, butterscotch, dried fruits, and a dry, grassy finish. Complex and interesting, classic example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 Bottle, 75cl. Tasted at the Delirium Tremens cafe in Gothenburg. Had Håkan, the manager, to pick this to go with Trappist-cheeses. Maybe I am a bit influenced by the setting in this rating, but I did my best not to. It is a lovely beer, hazy and amber in colour, with a high, dense, white head. A mild, vinous, yet sweet taste with candisugar. Round aftertaste. The alcohol content is well disguised. Rating: 7-4-8-4-17-4. (051008)
Bottle, 37.5cl corked. The cork came off like a rocket, but no gushing. It pours an orange-golde body with lots of microfloaties and a big off-white head. Some alcohol on the nose, but far from unpleasant, along with fruits and sugars. Some cellar in the mouth, with white sugar, some alcohol and grapes too. Lasting herbal, bitter finish. Full-bodied and almost sticky. Definately not a big beer, dangerously drinkable and very tasteful. (090213)
