3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden in colour with a light malty taste.No overpowering sense of alcohol surprising for a beer of this strength.
Very refreshing and easdy to drink-a good example of what is to my mind a very pleasant style of beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium to deep gold, nice full head that lingers well, sexy stream of bubbles rising persistently through the beer. Aroma is grainy with a hint of orange and yeast. Medium bodied in the mouth, very reminiscent of Duvel, but lacking the complexity and layering of flavors Duvel achieves. Grains, yeast, and gentle floral and orange flavors. Easy drinking, a great summer beer. Nice to have the chance to try this style after not having seen it for a couple of years.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy honey color, white head and decent lacing. Fruit and some yeast in the nose. Initially very sweet with fruity, spicy flavors. Thick bodied and sticky on the lips. Alcohol warms on the way down. Not a bad beer but I prefer their Ambree offering.
