2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First of all, in my opinion, this brew is way overpriced to say the least because I do not feel it is all that great of a brew. It poured a large white invigorating foamy head and there was not that much lacing on the sides of my glass. The aroma was a combination of being spicy, fruity and a slight clove aroma. There was carbonation observed and the body was a pale yellow. The taste of this brew was fizzy and tingly which is not much to my liking when it comes to taste. I was not impressed to say the least and the cost is way out of line in my personal opinion. Even if I really, really liked this brew, I would still say that it is way overpriced.

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.

Dorata limpida, schiuma bianca che svanisce immediatamente.
Aroma di basilico e coriandolo e "sudore".
Stesse note al palato, molto carbonata, corpo leggero.

12cl glass at Café Rose Red, Brugge. Clear golden with a modest, bubbely, white head. Rather herbal aroma with modest fruity and yeasty notes and hints of spices. Fairly dry and herbal with nice, prickling carbonation and a moderate bitterness. Tasty and refreshing it is.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cor formada, brilhante, excelente carbonatação. Aroma complexo com notas de pêra, abacaxi, maçã verde, uva moscato, gengibre, cavro-da-Índia e erva-doce. Sabor obedece ao aroma, muito complexo e bastante vivaz. Uma excelente cerveja para ser tomada a dois.

Comme pour du champagne, à servir très froid, car cette bière à un haut niveau de carbonation et une très belle tête. On dénote effectivement le goût du champagne, plus que dans les autres produits du même genre que j’ai pu gouter. Mais au final, l’alcool est un peu trop présent et le prix trop élevé par rapport au produit final.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle during Brussels vacation. Golden with white head. Aroma is dry malty, alcohol, coriander, light banana and herbs. Taste is fairly sweet, pale malt, coriander, banana, perfume, herbs and alcohol. A tad too sweet and boozy for me
