Bottled. Gigantic, slightly off-white head, amber colour. Yeasty, very fruity, slightly honeyish aroma. Tastes pretty caramelly, sugary and slightly fruity, maybe oranges, some chocolate and some spiciness. Acidic and prickling on the tongue. A really nice beer.

Turbid dark straw pour with malt, hopcit, toffee aroma. Well hidden alcohol and a malty, ery hopcity finish. Very complex, with caramels and fruits coming out more pronounced as it warmed. Fantastic.

Pours out a nice carbonated cloudy amber color with a small forming head. It has a very unique fruity aroma of apple cider. The taste is sweet with notes of carmel and sugar with a very nice finish, would be a great beer to have with a piece of apple pie.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large, bubbly off-white head with very good carbonation. Light aroma of pears, grapes and a bit of hops. Color is a medium golden orange. Flavor is fizzy in the mouth with grapes, hay, some yeast and a hint of alcohol. Finish is crisp and slightly tart/bitter. An ok belgian but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got this one in the mail and there was a little leakage - oh, oh, better have this one 1st. Opened with a huge pop followed by gushing beer everywhere. Poured a darker, hazy amber color with a large, frothy white head. Aromas and tastes of yeast, some citris and light malts (caramel?). Fizzy body that detracted from the taste.

The aroma is an eye opener. It’s one of those "what the fuck is that familiar smell aroma." I never figured it out. Cherry, wood, candy sugar and caramel.
Quite a bit of sugars in this one. Very sweet. Chocolate, caramel, sugars and a large amount of fruitiness.
