Clear, bubbly and golden. A big fizzy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is fruity and a bit dry. It has a prominent, complex spicyness and is a bit chalky. The mouth feel is very fizzy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale sun yellow with a fine poring white head. Aromas of overripe muscat grapes, some funk, farmhouse, citrus and gingerbread notes light earthy, ripe peach, pretty complex. Tangy, slick texture and rather full bodied. Sweet muscat grape flavours with notes of fruity esters, gingerbread and faint even hidden toast notes developing a light dry bitterness at the far back of the palate. Lasting sweet sparkling dessert wine finish. Complex throughout hiding its alcohol well.

1/14/2007 1:28:19 AM Bottle at home with Trine, Scott and Chris. Very much like champagne, complete with huge foamy head and served into champagne glasses, then mellows into a nice beer. Spicy and fruity, taste of pears. Most extraordinary. Bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vintage 2006 Bottle!!!
Pours a vibrant deep golden color with virtually no head. Smells wonderfully of peaches, apricot, spices, grass, a touch of pumpkin and a tinge of alcohol. Flavors upfront are slightly musty with a fruity finish. Body is very nice: smooth with moderately low carbonation and a very slight presence of alcohol. Incredible beer.

A clear orange beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is lovely spicy combined with notes of lemon. I believe I have to rerate this one day.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Un nez fin, floral, légèrement épicé (anis).
En bouche, elle est parfaite d’équilibre, de finesse, d’aromes.
En vrac : réglisse, anis, miel. Les uns vont par dessus les autres selon la température. Pas d’effet d’habitude, de lassitude ou autre.
Une vraie expérience unique.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle. 2012 vintage. This one had a thick pellicle in the neck of the bottle, so I figured I had best chill it down and drink it up before it exploded. Luckily, I had enjoyed a clean bottle of this last year (never rated), so I had a point of comparison. I have to say the slight brett character goes a long way to balance out this beer. Slightly hazy blonde with a big white head that fades away fast. Nose is lightly horsey and leathery, mild citrus and sweet grainy malts. Spicy coriander, white grape and candy floss. Still on the sweeter side (wish I gave the brett another 6 months to take hold)! Faint acid on the finish, more fruity than tart. Body is moderate to full, alcohol still perceptible on the finish, highly carbonated with that distinct champagne mouthfeel. Creamy on the tongue. A very enjoyable beer, tainted or not.
