3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl. bottle. Nice pur with fluffy white heat. A bit darker than what I expected. Nice nose - smell of pears and saaz hops. Spicey hop flavor and yeasty. Abundant carbonation. Smooth flavor. Mmmm. I would rate this in front of Duval for flavor and aroma (And I am a huge Duval fan). Worth every penny.

Bottle, golden yellow, huge foamy white head, very persistent (overflowed the glass, I didn’t expect it to foam so much!). Nice yeasty/hoppy smell. Malt/yeast flavors up front, hops on the tail end. And that 8.5% ABV sneaks up on you!

70cl bottle, bought in Lille. Foamy white head, citrusy and yeasty aroma. Very strong yeast taste, too much for me in fact. A good deal of hops and much carbonation. Not the best admirer of wheat beers but I reckon for those that are this is a must.

Had one in Paris, France. I had read about this beer, but didn’t know what I’d be having. Very yeasty taste, somehow puky, don’t know why. Alcohol comes thru quite a lot. Maybe it’s the name, but this beer really made me feel a bit sick.

Bottle. Maybe it’s just me. Not a real Belgian Ale fan yet. Sweet and Fizzy. I’ll pass next time and order something else.

Pours out a golden yellow? Why not brown? Hmmmmm. Nice froathy white head. Aroma is very yeasty and slightly hoppy. Flavor is alot more hoppy than I would have expected. Beer champion of the world in 1998? There must have been some shitty beer in 1998. Hell PBR was selected America’s best in 1893 and its not that great either.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy yellow color body with small small particles and fast bubbles that go up to reach a beatiful, huge creamy head, beige that doesn’t move. Aroma is very nice, fruity, sweet, of ripe peach, honey, caramel, papaya and species like coriander. Flavor is not as good as the aroma but it is certainly great: sweet and intense, a bit herbal and alcoholic by the end. Great body, nice carbonation. Very good, but I had higher expectations :(

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. High white though quickly disappearing head. Hazy light yellow body. Fruity aroma with a touch of liquorice. Acidic coriander flavor with a nice hops bitterness and quite a good deal of carbonation. A hint of the alcohol in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A slightlly oranged gold pour. An aroma of coriander, apple, and slight yeast. A flavor of fruit and alcohol. I was surprised at the lack of yeast flavor. A lot of carbonation that was expected. The very warmness of the alc. was a surprise, not a lot of malt to help carry it, but that is not a huge negative for me just a comment.
