2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
At Epic Beer Fest 2013. Clear light golden under a dissipating bubbly white head. Aroma is sour with an underlying funky fruitiness, like apple and pear, with a blonde breadlines underneath. Flavor is crisp yet sour in a somewhat unpleasant way, like acidic and dirty. Tones of earthy oak and spoilt apples, with a bready sort of funkiness and muddled malt tone.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml capped bottle. Acquired in 2012. No dating on the bottle.
Served in a Duvel tulip
A - Clear golden brass body with 3 fingers of moundy white head. Impressive retention, with speckled lacing throughout.
S - Spicy Belgian yeast, dried bananas, apples, pears, grassy, cloves, pepper, perfumy lemon, hints of earthy musk.
T - Fruity upfront with white peaches, pears, banana, pineapple, and starfruit. Grainy pale malt creates a nice base, earthy black pepper, cloves, dusty grass, herbal notes and lemon come out more as it warms. The finish starts peppery and turns tart. Finishes dry.
M - Moderate carbonation, prickly at first then smooths out. Medium bodied, glides over the palate.
Awesome looking beer! This is pretty balanced beer. All of the components shine without being overtaken. Funk is there but acts as more of an accent. Good carbonation and mouthfeel as well.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw colour, slightly hazy pale yellow, white head. Sweet aroma, glue, ethyl acetate? Funk and cherries. Sweet flavour, bit chemical, some funk. Sweet funky finish.
Was looking forward to this one. Itís interesting, but a bit off. Bit of a disappointment.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is earthy, brett, hay, light spice, toast, orange peel and a touch of sweetness. The taste is earthy, hay, brett, alcohol, bitter-sweet aspect, pithy orange, overly-sweet tangerine and candy with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Too hot and sweet for my liking. Disappointing....

Bottle @ RBESGí13 Grand Tasting @ De Molen: Served in a Molen taster: Thanks for sharing Borresteijn:
Small white head on top of an almost clear yellow colored beer.
Aromas of paper, grains, asparagus, pee, pencil sharpener, lemon an a sprinkle of wild yeast.
Flavours of lemon, yeast, grains, malts, warmth, bittwrs, corn, wheat, citrus and light wood.
Aftertaste is light dry, grains, malts, some bitterness and wheat.
Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy oily texture. Thereís something missing in this beer. But itís not bad, even without that missing thing..
