3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml bottle pooured into a Trappist glass. Pours amber with a average size fizzy light brown head that diminishes rather quickly leaving no lacing. The body is clear with carbonation bubbles floating to the top. The aroma is strawy and grainy with a light yeastyness along with some alcohol. The flavor is first off caramel malts with a touch of toffee along with a moderate belgian yeastyness. There is a slight bitterness and alcohol finish in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber color, minimal white head. Aroma is caramel and malt. Mostly malt. Taste is liquor, pretty boozy, caramel, heavy sweet. Thin body. Boozy finish. All in all, too sweet and too boozy. Like they even didn’t try to hide it. Don’t like it.

Courtesy of Pornoguru (thanks Nikola!), shared with him and Jablanko. Possibly ogivlado as well. The last beer of the tasting. Hah. Poured an amber-orange body with a lovely white head. Boozy malty aroma, apples, Belgian spiciness. Sweet, remarkably light matly taste, thin for the percentage. Again, not my style. Better than the Blonde.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale to medium, opaque amber pour with a thick, but diminishing, slightly off white, bubbly head with plenty of small, clear suspended particles in the glass. The bitterness is long lasting, though dull and the taste becomes more sweet than bitter halfway in. The aroma & taste is a little fruity with a medium-strong vodka like alcohol presence, and even some sourness. I would compare this in some ways to a slightly better than mediocre, homemade wine; Its a little rough around the edges, has a kick to it & gets easier to drink halfway through. Overall its enjoyable and a great brew to sip on before dinner.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at a big tasting (Nördprovning 2015). We tried the 2004 vs the 2006 version of this beer. Smell of dried fruit. Similar taste, a bit boozy. A bit boozy with a distinct alcoholic warmth. A bit too rough. There wasn’t a big difference between the bottles.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska från Bier Tempel Bryssel. Gyllengul färg med inslag av rött. Doftar medicinskål och svagt av fänkol. Smakar anis och gröna örter. En hög sötma kamouflerar den 12%-iga alkoholhalten. Fyllig och eldig munkänsla.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rødbrun farge. Lukter malt og sødme. Og også alkohol. Smaker desverre for mye alkohol for meg. Søtlig og bitter avslutning.

Bottle. Pours ruby amber with small white head. Werid on the nose; smells bad like a farm. Taste is decent thought spices, slightly sweet and a bit of a bitter finish. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Medium size head, disappears within a minute. Pours out as fizzy as lemonade. Caramel, malty, grainy, sweet, bit dusty aroma. Caramel, malty, sweet in taste. Not typical Belgian. Nice malty aftertaste. Alcohol is hidden at first, but as it warms up (ohh really?), more of it comes up. Not disturbing thou. Nice one.
