3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at RBESG-06, GTN. Hazy, yellow-orange, with a white head. Fruity, yeasty and mouldy aroma with some sour notes. The flavor is sweet and fruity, with lemon, apples, sugar, spices and alcohol. Alcohol, spice and bitterness in the finish. Really lovely, but too strong now. Should be aged a while. (060826)

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. Hazy golden, brief head. Fantastic arousing aroma of muscat grapes and wood. Sweet with some caramel undeneath a layer of wood and grapes. Reminiscent of a much sweeter Cantillon Reed Gueuze Muscat, but withbigger bolder flavours. The same fantastic flavours as in the 2000, still too sweet - perhaps this one more so than the 2000, but yet one of the very best beers I know.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[At RBESG 2006] A hazy orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol and spice - the most dominant spices being cinnamon and cloves. The flavor is sweet combined with a slight acidity, and with lots of spices, cloves and peber, and De Dolle yeast and alcohol. The alcohol burns in the throat. A good beer - but my guess is that it will improve in years to come.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
11.6 oz bottle-trade w/Marsiblursi. Wow, this is an amazing beer. Pours a cloudy/mirky yellow/orange color w/a moderate white foamy head. Lacing lasts throughout the beer, never goes away. The first drink actually took my breath away. Very effervescent-freshness just jumps out & graps your throat. Sweetness, lemon, orange, grassy, spicy, plum, white wine/grape flavor. Somewhat of a cross between a barley wine & a whitber-if that is possible. Some people may find it too sweet or young, but I feel that is it’s strength, it just seems to jump out of the glass at you & scream DRINK ME!! Long, full finish. You don’t taste the alcohol, but you sure feel it, really warms you up!! Thanks for the opportunity to try this amazing beer, I am really starting to get hooked on these quality Belgian’s

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy pale nutbrown colour, white small head. Aroma is yeast with strong citric and sour fruits. Flavour is sour fruits along with some spices, plum and mild honey. A bit alcohol is present also, but fits the whole well. Will do with aging.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy amber golden with a small, white head. Lightly tart, citrusy nose with a whiff of yeast. Fairly full body with sweet, malty accents. A honeyish character and some indefinable spices. Exciting all right at the mo, but will probably develop a lot with aging. 260806
