4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light straw color with lots of nice bubbly carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet lightly citrus, super subtle Belgian yeast notes. Banana orange peel. The carbonation helps bring a lot of really pleasant aromas to the forefront. Flavor is clean, mouth coating, mild, pear apple, citrus, light pepper. This is an amazing beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Huge pop when the cork came out pouring golden with a huge white head. The aroma is delicious sweet candy Belgian yeast and light earthy green notes. The flavor is a mixture between a smooth Belgian golden and champagne from the yeast, not dry but a bit sweet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml corked bottle listed at 11%ABV pours a bright golden color with plenty of white bubbly head which settles and leaves a thin lacing behind in clumps. Aroma is light malts with a bit of yeast and fruit. Taste is malty sweetness with some fruit and yeast and light hop bitterness. Carbonation is lively and body is medium providing a nice tingle on the palate. Alcohol is disguised well and this is one damn good brut.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 pours light honey yellow, medium sized carbonation, high head, sticky lacing. 1st impression: overly carbonated. 1st third of the flavour is blocked by the burping reflex of the overwhelming carbonation. Taste is very 8/10 sweet, rush of honey, malts, nuts, chamomile, with a mild bitter finish. Way too carbonated and sweet to enjoy properly. High complexity, high depth, long length, but out-of-balance in carbonation and sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[3802-20110630] Bottle. Floral soap yeast aroma has some hints of baby talcum powder. Clear, orange body with a long lasting foamy white head. More floral biscuit yeast in the flavour with a hint of toasted dough. Medium body is bubbly. Good, though uncomfortably pricey. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011-06-30. Crisp golden body with a modest foamy white head. 3+ Sweet malty aroma has yeasty overtones and doughy biscuity notes. Light alcohol character present. 7+ Flavour is similar, pale malt with biscuity caramel malt accents up front, brief fruit in the middle finishes dry with a decent amount of alcohol prescence. Impression of a triple with more biscuity caramel malt character. Fairly effervescent average plus bodied palate suits it. 3+ Enjoyable. Bottle at Volo, Toronto
