4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Split rating from the old special brouwsel entry, had both the original and the 20 years anniversary version. Pours beautiful deep amber and with a nice offwhite head. Aroma is fruity and cherry, extremely smooth and inviting with a mild whiff of caramel malt beneath. Smooth phenolic and cherry flavoured, yet so perfectly balanced. Complex wineous smooth finish - just fantastic!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very explosive beer. The color is hazy red and it has huge fast disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of wood, yeast, alcohol, and prunes, but also a sourness, as if it is too old. The flavor is acidic with notes of alcohol, red currant, grapefruit, and a dry hoppy end. The acidity draws out the mouthwater. It seems as if this beer is over the top - but it is still a very nice beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 (Bottle: 75 cl) Very orange beer with visible impurities. Head is extremely thick, almost like whipped cream. First impression of the flavor is sour (like a gueuze) but underneath I definitely sense the added candi-sugar. Furhermore it has a distinct, dry bitterness. This beer has this musty, foxed way about it, which is quite typical for the small Belgians. 091102

Bottled@PBF VIII (thanks lusikka). Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is quite dry wood, some acidic notes, and some sadly cardboardy oxidation. Flavour is tart wood, some herbs and earth.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange coloured, pours extremely lively with rich, firm head. Acidic near lambic-ish aroma. Oaky and balsamic, extremely drinkable for an 8% ale. Balanced and immensly flavourful.

Bottled 10/2000 (and bought in Brussels, 11 Sept 2001)
Muddy copper color, explosive bottle. Sweet and sour aroma, cellar, wood, some vanilla. Sweet, malty, strong, light fruitness, high woodiness, some sourness. Excellent but maybe too woody (and just a bit too bitter at the end).

Bottled 750ml PBFVIII
Tnx lusikka. Hazy orange deep amber color, small white head. Cellary, fruity aroma. Medium-bodied. Ok, some cellary notes but besides that De Dolle yeast, fruity, alcohol, liquerish palate. Orginally a great beer and even now very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BIG tan head atop a murky orange-red body filled with floaties. Aroma is sour cherry, prune and grape. Taste is sour, acidic, cherry, prune. Not quite as pleasant as the nose leads me to believe, but still nice.
