3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle poured into glass. Honey gold color with a big fluffy head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of honey and slight boozyness. Flavor is sweet as well. The ABV sort of makes this a little hard to enjoy. Good but I probably wont reach for it again.

bottle... dark honey gold with a bright off white head, good retention and nice lace... sweet honey water with yeast, deceptively light... the taste is way to sweet, sweet wet grains, honey, yeast, alcohol finish yet for 10% its really easy to drink... average

11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours cloudy golden with a thick, fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma strong of caramel and cereal malts, spicy yeast, and a nice balance of floral hops. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good Tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangish brew, diffuse head. The sweet intensity of the bouquet is a bit jarring at first whiff. As I settle to imbibe it more deeply, I am ensconced by sugared corn flakes doused in alcoholic fruit punch which soon becomes more distinct. From peeled layers arises apple, which takes center stage. The body is of a buzzy Belgian apple flavor along a layer of sugar-frosted corn flakes. Definitely a brew that is at once interesting, and also redolent of distinct childhood breakfast memories.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, a few years old. Poured cloudy medium orange with a short-ish cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up lavender and peppery yeast over honey, bready, and raisin-y sweetness.. some sour apple and apricot-y notes accented.. smelled like it was a tad old, but it was still aiight. The flavor found candied raisin and honey malts with dry pepper, cloves, and some sour malts laced throughout.. almost mapley on the back-end, with enough sugars to mostly mask the boozage.. decent stuff, but again it seemed past its prime. Heavier-bodied and syrupy on the palate, with lots of decayed hops evident.. sweet in the middle, and mostly dry in the end.. this was a tough one to rate, and I’d like to try a fresh sample sometime.

The faint aroma is pleasant and unusual, sort of like pancakes on the griddle. This is a very good Belgian strong ale. When I drink a Wit beer, I want it to taste like this. It’s like a heartier, boozier Wit without as much citrus. The booze isn’t hidden, but you are glad it’s there. This beer feels more like 15% instead of the quoted 10%. Enjoy responsibly.

33 cl. Golden with a humongous head. Nose is spicy resin, hard candy, and wheat. Taste is the same with a bit of iron, cardboard, more resin, and light vinous notes. Light-medium body is dryish, smoothly carbonated, and watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow, with very sizable foamy white head. Aroma has notes of sweet spices, lemon, bread, honey oats. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, pretty hard to believe its 10% the way it drinks. Flavor is very spicy, with various bread notes, very soft sourdough underlying the sweet spices, with a generally dry finish, perhaps a touch of white grape, zesty spices, cracker.
