3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Off-white medium minus head holding over hazy golden beer. Medium aroma intensity, malty and yeasty aromas with some sweet spice. Medium bodied, off-dry and faint bitter, well-carbonated, refreshing. Flavour intensity not loud but balanced. Alcohol warmth revealed but not bothersome, nice fruit and spices midpalate into a medium finish with the freshness holding. Very useful food beer.

Bottle - hazy golden colour with large white head. Aroma of citrus hops, Belgian yeast, tropical fruit, candy. Flavours similar, malty, sweet, fruity, spicey. Medium bodied, quite highly carbonated, foamy mouthfeel. Very good and very nice with the un-pasteurised Roquefort cheese I’m enjoying with it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
More akin to a triple than a quad. Just look, taste and smell. Victory golden monkey likeness with a bit more body to it. It is good but too foamy ridiculousness. I can drink the bottle and still walk. That's ok. I drink fast too. But, definitely Belgian yeast..,though a twice removed brother...I can sense the lack of true hardcore Belgian yeasty..,think westy or chimay for comparison. Believe me it is drinkable but only for the pussy newbie to Belgians.

Slightly hazy golden with 2 finger big bubble head. Nose is yeasty, light boozy sugar aroma. Taste starts with malty sweetness then opens up with the yeast and a little bitterness kicking in. Great finish.

750ml bottle poured into nonic. Clear yellow-gold beer with two fingers of active fizzy white head. Spots of lacing are left on the glass. Tropical fruity esters, pears, apples, pepper, clove, and alcohol make up the aroma. Taste is candi sugar, orchard fruit, and honey sweetness up front, followed by a little earthy bitterness and alcohol heat. Medium-plus body, slick texture, champagne carbonation, crisp sweet finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ale aroma with fruity, lemon and spices. Very thick head when poured with a nice light gold color. Spices, raisin, malt and sweetness on the palate with a very light bitterness on the end. Taste light and refreshing for 9% ABV. Not a big Belgian Ale fan, but I like this one. Nice beer!
