4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bought from wine warehouse in Charlottesville, Va. 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a stand-tall head that will extend above the glass rim by an inch if you let it. Bright white puffy head. Body is clear and golden. Bubbles are even and steady though somewhat fewer than the head would denote. Nose is old pears, pinch o’ sour, malty/caramel fo’ sho.
Hop snap on the tongue at first and last taste. In the middle is a rich malt flavor. It’s like a hops-malt-hops oreo.
Finish is fairly clean in the mouth. If this thing would age, I’d buy a case. As it is, I will simply pick up two bottles every time I see it.

(Tap) Beautiful beer. Nice spicy aroma. The flavor is quite nice but too bitter! Quite dry. I’d be very interested in trying other beers from this brewery.

Tap. Pours hazy golden, huge creamy off white head, dissipates slowly, great lacing. Aroma is yeast, honey, grass, pepper, orange zest. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter, grassy, a but of citrus, lots of spicy yeast. Lightish body. A bit of graininess. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Staminee De Garre, Brugge, 17/10/14.
Lightly hazed golden with a big old off white head that retains well.
Nose is yeast esters, citric rind, earthy hop, herbal tones, straw, lemon peel, spice.
Taste comprises earthy notes, lemon rind, faint metallic leanings, nettles.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a little spritz, hint of booze in the close.
Ok Belgo but doesn’t do a whole lot for me.

33 cl bottle at home. Pours a rich golden colour with a massive white head. Aroma is of earthy, peppery hop and rich grain. Taste is firmly bitter with a good, balancing background of mellow sweetness. Rich on the palate, well carbonated, the finish is dry and bitter. A truly great beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle served in a Trappist chalice.
A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a big bubbled white head. Good retention and a small layer the never goes on the top. Some lacings left
S: Very fruity and super-spicy in the nose. Notes of orange, grapefruit, honey and vanilla. Tons of grapes. Delicious flowery hops. Sweet malts and Belgian yeasts backbone
T: Pretty much as the nose. Strong character. Very malty. Slightly sweet upfront followed by spicy notes, orange zest, honey, vanilla. In overall a dry and bitter taste
M: Medium to heavy body. Medium carbonation. Strong bite of hops bitterness as aftertaste
O: Very drinkable. Something between a Strong Pale Ale and a Belgian IPA. Reminded me Duvel, but a super-spiced version of. Absolutely great Belgian beer
