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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cL. Home. Served chilled. A clear golden yellow beer with a huge white head. Many thin bubbles. Good persistence. Fruity aroma (lemon), spices, herbs, alcohol. Heavy silky sugary sweet, light bitter. Full body, oily texture (nearly syrupy in the end), average carbonation, sweet finish. Overall, a good fruity sweet silky beer. A bit disappointed : expensive, good but not outstanding...

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma of ripe fruits, yeast, coriander, ginger, perfume, sugar, herbs. Flavour is sickening cloying sweetness, some warming alcohol. Carbonated like a champagne. The more I drank the more I disliked this overrated debacle. Really vile sugary crap made all the more disgusting because of the hefty price tag.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cor dourada clara, translúcida e brilhante; percebe-se algum perlage; espuma branca de alta formação e persistência média com lacing regular;
Ao abrir a garrafa percebe-se aroma floral e de maçã; com evolução da temperatura, uvas verdes e manjericão;
Sabor frutado de maçã, damasco e pêra com um final ácido e seco que lembra vinho branco e um toque de cravo; retrogosto levemente ácido;
Corpo leve e carbonatação alta.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From the 2011 corked, caged bottle that I cracked open to both celebrate my birthday and Rate Beer Review no. 2,000. An attractive pale yellow color erupts into an overflowing white fizzy head and excellent clarity. The aroma is absolutely spectacular and runs a range of sensations. Toasted pale malts, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, ginger perhaps, and clove. It delicately tickles the nose like champagne. The body is full. The taste is like the aroma with all those spicy characters, especially the ginger. It finishes clean and slightly dry. Lingering sort of fruitiness at the end.
