<i>Bottle @ home</i>
<b>App:</b> Golden yellow with sediment at the bottom. Big off white head. Some spread lacings.
<b>Aroma:</b> Sweet and yeasty fruity with an alcohol sting. Doughy yeasty caramelly malts with lots of pommerans, ginger and some banana and fermented yellow apples. Slight tropical touch.
<b>Taste:</b> Pretty sweet with an alcohol bite at the end. Inbetween that there's lots of citrussy pommerans, sweet dough, marmalade, apples and banana and some spice.
<b>Palate:</b> Medium to bigger boddy with soft carbonation that fades pretty fast and leaves a sweet oily palate.
<b>Overall: Pretty good belgian style strong ale that could do with some more character to hold up the sweetness and the alcohol.</b> ...

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. cloudy golden color with an off white head. Light hints of almonds, bananas,citrus, yeast, caramel and nuts on the nose. Taste is rather dry with a long lasting nice banana and lemon flavoured bitterness. Some sweet caramel balanced with table sugar, notes of almonds, orange peel and ginger. A really nice tasting beer but i miss a more intensive aroma.

75cl bottle. Lively carbonation. Quite effervescent. It's a yeasty, wheaty, sweety. The flavour was good, though I found the alcohol a bit strong. Perhaps could be balanced better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
On the label: 2122B
Itís gold, it carries a solid finger of whites and a brilliant clarity. Smells of carbonation, belgian yeast, some sweet grain, some earthy hops, and a touch of household dust. Flavor is grain, sweetness, some hints of flowers and a bit of corn alongside a dose of belgian pale yeast. Body is thin on medium with hi carb and a bone dry finish. I have to drink water every time I taste the beer - thatís just too much. Another beer from Brooklyn, another strikeout - particulary because the mouthfeel is just soo much to overcome.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really lively bottle, cork blew, ricocheted off the roof and hit me on the head.
Straw and cloves on the nose. Subtle.
Appearance is a light clear gold, little retention of head after the pour.
Taste is lemony, cereal, bubblegum, malt with a dry, champagne like quality. Really lovely.
Again, slightly champagne like on the tongue, Lots of bubbles and a creamy texture.
All in all a spectacular beer which could give most belgian ales produced in the country itself a run for their money.
