4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Sergio's World Beer. The pour is a nice ruby-ish amber color with a thin ring of tannish head and no lace. The aroma is great. Apple, pear, light sweet cherry, and a bit of lemony or orangey citrus. The flavor is more belgian. The fruits are there, and there is the distinct yeastiness. The flsvors are mellow, but pretty good. The mouth feel is a bit light, and I wish there was a little more carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly fruity and just delicious. Not bad at all!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Groote Witte Arend, Antwerp. Had this beer loads of times but first time actually rating it. Pours a murky dark brown with a massive small bubbly tan head. Aroma of malts, light citrus, overripe dark fruit and light aniseed. The palate is where it really stands out with a Champaign like feel, small light bubbles dancing around on your tongue and brining out the flavors. Over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter. Light full bodied with that lovely champagne like carbonation.

Splendida bevuta. Birra da meditazione ma al contempo molto beverina, quando si hanno 9 gradi e non ci si stanca mai di bere è un gran bel segnale secondo me! Grandissima birra!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flasche (33 cl; MHD: 4/2015) von Getränkefeinkost Berlin. - Rotbraun, trüb; enorm reichlicher Schaum. - Nase scharf fruchtig-hopfenherb, leicht säuerlich, weinig. - Antrunk etwas scharf säuerlich, etwas Gras, weiße Trauben, zugleich warm dunkelmalzig mit leichten Röstnoten. Würzige Kräuter, Lebkuchen. Gut rezent, schaumig; etwas dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang fruchtig herb und gut malzbitter. - Eigenartige Mischung von dunkelmalzigen Aromen und säuerlich-scharfen Zügen. Wirkt irgendwie unfertig, wie halb umgekippt. Schwer vorzustellen, daß das so gedacht war.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I think it had originally pours a clean amber, but once I got to the bottom of the bottle, it looked a murky red-brown with visible clots of yeast sediment floating around. Yum! 1.5 inches of dust head froth that fades at a moderate rate. Snap, crackle, pop! Aroma is bread crust and tart cherry, pear and apple, bit of raisin and spice. Hint of soap in there as it warms. Body is light, watery up front with a slightly oily finish and a prickly wave of carbonation. Flavor is bread, bread crust, some apple, spice, and even a bit of yeasty moldy cheese. Spicy finish. I’m wondering if I should have been more careful with that sediment, yet it still very good. Interesting BSA. I’m not exactly sure what to compare it too; maybe other De Dolle beers. At first I felt it was a bit watery and had an aftertaste that was more bitter than yummy, but as it warms its complexity (of spice, raisin, midway through taste) is coming through, retaining a high score.
