2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aftertaste is stale and nasty. Texture of the beer is extremely syrupy. The carbonation level is much too light for a beer of this strength.

Bottle from Lukas Liquor. Golden pour with large, lasting head. Lots of yeast in the glass. Very easy drinking (dangerously so), hoppy finish. Refreshing. Very nice beer.

One of the first belgiums I had. Pretty impressive at the time but now it has slumped alittle. Very yeasty with a medium body. Pretty well balanced but not as good as alot of other belgiums.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A deep, honey yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong, sour fruit nose, citrusy, with an unripened red fruit aroma, and a hint of malt. A fizzy mouthfeel and a strong potent taste, tart, citrusy hop flavour, sour red fruits, spicy and a touch smokey, then a malty taste that leads to a dry finish. (Bottle - purchased from Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk for £1.95 a bottle).

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose is complex and on the sweet side. Bready/yeasty, fruity esters. Apples, bananas, light hops. Dark orange with lively carbonation and some yeast floculation. Huge frothy white head which subsides to a slightly thinner but still frothy topping that laces nightly. Flavor is rather sour and lacks the complexity of the nose. This bottle has been sitting around for a bit which may have muted some of the subtleties. Palate is well-suited, but could use a bit more substance.
