3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Honey, medium-sweet malt, grapefruit, and alc. fumes. Thin hazy medium straw color. Sharp fruit initial: peaches and light grapefruit / yeast bite and then moderate fruit sweetness, along with some oxidation. Medium body. Some decent flavors. Doesn’t hide the alcohol well. Nice enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 8.5% about 450 yen from Sugaya. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a cloudy dark gold with potent fruity belgian yeasty aroma with biscuit, cream, plum notes. Nice flavor! Light but very effervescent carbonation, sweet malts, vanilla, hints of candied fruits. The finish has a touch of a grainy malt sweetness though. Overall a pretty good beer. Drunk from a St-Feuillien chalice type glass...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille 33cl, BB 12/2014.
Dorée, col épais crémeux blanc.
Arôme est agréablement fleuri, note houblon citronné sur agrumes, malt caramel léger.
Palais est malté, houblonné assez vert, palais est sec avec un alcool devenant réchauffant. Note d’épice des houblons, malt carapale avec une amertume qui perdure en fin de bouche. Ok, mais sans plus avec ici des houblons qui servent à rehausser la profil général de la bière. On reste toujours dans un choix de Poperinge assez nobles mais efficace pour cette version.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. BBF 12/2014. According to the bottle: “Brewery “De Lelie” was located in Vosselaar on the Cingel next to the church. The company was founded in 1907 and taken over in 1922 by the brewer Jan Dresselaers. Latter his son Rene succeeded his father. They brewed quality beers of high fermentation of which “Pater” and “Paus” were the best known. In 1952 the production was stopped.” It appears that a local VZW (same name as the previous brewery) decided to restart the production of these beers and they are being contract brewed now by Scheldebrouwerij. The beer pours a bright apple Champagne golden with a creamy and stable white head. Surprisingly hoppy nose, citrus, creamy, almost sweet cornflakes in a good way, fruity yeast,… Taste is bitter, floral, hop forward, white pepper, thin yeast, almost saison-yeast, sweetness coupled, sugar, peel with some fruitiness, moderate alcohol… Lightly creamy and well carbonated – actually reminds me of the recent Delhaize Xtreme Hop series but much better. Lovely beer.
