4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 Pours light golden yellow with a small but well lasting white head. Aroma has yeasty spiciness, fruitiness, honey, herbs - very distinct and special. Taste is fruity and spicy with a round, full-bodied palate and a lively carbonation that sets this apart from other beers. Flavours include sweetish maltiness, honey, ripe fruitiness, some floral notes. Taste is rich, long and distinct, interesting to drink. Champagnesque features blend in nicely in this strong Belgian ale.

Starts out with a lot of bubbly and strong Belgium qualities. It looses fizz in the head of the beer and becomes quite boozy. We purchased this beer to celebrate, I stand by this as a good decision. A floral and slight woody aroma. White head, sparkling upfront but dissipates. We see this beer as being complex. Not as much of a champagne influence as expected, lays far on the Belgium strong style. Cheers, a beer worth experiencing.

Bottle. Golden colour with a sparkling white head. Floral malt, citrus, yeast aroma. Flavour is yeasty, citrus, some caramel, fruit. A rather odd beer. Not as fresh and sparkly as champagne, but it sure is something different.

Apple notes and fairly dry nose at first, but taste is rather more sweet. Paired excellently with some gruyere! As a beer perfectly in the sweetness range, but given the "champagne" comparisons perhaps a little misleading... Nice overall

Bottle from Parkhill. Great, complex. Aromas of citrus, dough, hay, honey. Taste is sweet, with bitter and sour notes, long length. Palate is syrupy, full bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

75cl from Carrefour (Belgium) in good company. Golden yellow with a great head. High carbonation but a rather normal to the eye. The difference is the aroma and flavour, and makes it unique, not necessarily the best beer in the world but one you should taste at least once in a life time. Fruity aroma with notes of lemon. The flavour starts with a sweet fruity flavour with some flower notes. But in the end you discover that after all you are drinking a beer, as it gets bitter and dry with cereal notes.

Pale yellow, rich fluffy white head. Rich, fresh, sparkling brut-like aroma of pears, lemon, flower petals and lemon. Refreshing fruity flavour of lime, pear, fruity malt, lemon and melon. Dry mouthfeelo. Soft alcholic notes in the back of the throat. Long champagne like fruity finish with a small alcohololic note
