3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is a powerful lemon and anise aroma - very fresh, slightly sweet with hints of ginger - a very inviting aroma. The beer is a unclear dark yellow with a fantastic head. The flavor rounded, slightly sweet with powerful notes spices - is it anise? It has been fermented in the bottle with candy sugar added.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Hazy pale golden colour with huge creamy white head. Alcohol, chemicals and fruits in aroma. Flavour is yeasty, fruity and some alcohol. Without the bottom yeasts it was full of alcohol, so the yeast takes the biting alcohol away a bit. Quite similar to the other Bon Secours rated so far.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Very hazy, pale golden beer with lots of yeast and a huge head. Quite dry with some warming alcohol. Also quite high in carbonation. More dry than bitter. Not a top-class Blonde ale. actually a bit ordinary. Disappointing considering Caulier’s normal high standards. 030601

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 5th November 2008. Hazy blonde beer. Dry sweet creamy araomatic malt let down by a spicy but over dry finish.
7th March 2010. A 10% version on tap - but it’s not the Noel. Cloudy blond beer. A little offputting pukey malt on the nose. Dry palate. Creamy malt. Sweet orange, a little floralness. Hints of dry brandy. Finishes dry, minerally and with some alcoholic heat.

Light blond color, hazy. Very nice aroma: malt, coriander, spices, lemon. Good Strong Belgian Ale, smooth (the aroma is its best feature).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. An unclear, golden beer with lots of floaties and an off-white head. Pale malt, yeast notes, some alcohol, citrus, apples and a spicy peppery hop note in the aroma. The flavor is quite strange, without me being able to point out what makes it strange. There’s a herbal and grainy flavor with pale malt and a decent bitterness, maybe it’s just the mix of flavors I find strange, or maybe there’s something I couldn’t pin. Warming and dry mouthfeel, yet sweetish. Quite bitter, herbal finish. Sure a drinkable beer, but as already mentioned, also a strange one. (080731)
