3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled May 2011, so almost a year old. Pours hazy gold with some chunks and a massive frothy white head that continuously builds in the etched Sam Adams tulip, kind of annoying. It took 15 minutes just to let the head recede and actually get some aroma. It did warm up nicely during that time too though since it was too cold at first. Aroma of citrus, bready malt, herb, fruit, earthy funk. The hops hold up well in the taste, fairly bitter and not oxidized, nice malt body. Medium body, high carbonation.

33cl bottle sampled in a chalice. Golden colored brew with a slight yeast haze that settles in a few minutes. It has 3 fingeres of foam in a chalice with low retention and no lacing. Smells of citrus, yeast and hops. Tastes of citrus, hop, dough and pepper. Dry spicy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Very nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Before my trip to Belgium this time I checked to see which fairly common beers I had not rated or reviewed. This is why I went into Cambrinus (Brugge) and ordered this, a Satan Red, a St Feuillien Triple and a Hercule Stout before anything else. Needless to say four different styles and types of beer: what fun drinking in Belgium can be.
Anyway this was first: golden pour with a huge white head to wade through.
The nose and taste are like a mixed fruit bowl that has been plunged into a bath of yeast, then had pepper dusted onto it before someone squirts lemon juice all over it. Now boil it and take out the lumpy bits, add some hops re-boil, allow it to settle in a bottle for a while and then it’s ready to drink.
