Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a thick off-white head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor and still some hoppy bitterness after 3 years in the bottle.

Capped 750 from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours hazy gold with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of fruity and earthy hops. Med body or better. Lots of hop; pretty dry; fairly bitter. Tastes really good; hops seem to have avoided damage.

Just some attributes from the tasting notes: sweet malts, harsh hops, oxidized? sweet sour and bitter flavour.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 75cl bottle shared@Nieuwjaarsreceptie Gentse Biervereniging, merci. Damp honey pollen in aroma lands gently on dry honeyed malts and more damp XX Poperinge bitter grassy hops, well-rounded. Evidently lost some over age, but quite some simple splendor managed to survive.

nel colore quasi arancio, schiuma corposa non molto persistente. birra erbacea, molto luppolata, amara ma molto bevibile.

Trappist1 (642) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2014
golden color with a off-white head. nose: malts, hops, bit of a metallic touch in the back. taste: malts and a lot of hops. great MtF, very well balanced. almost smooth and creamy, but a long gentle bitterness, dry taste. was a bit afraid that the aging would have had an impact, but it feels less than i was worried for. All in the back, got some malt sweetness. but this is still a very fine, fresh hoppy brew. on the otherhand, carbonation feels a bit subdued. good beer.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl (merci Nino @sherwood pub). Superbe houblonnage sur cette bière ! Complexe à souhait sans être trop amère. Un régal !
