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.

Bottle. Pours golden in color with a foamy whitish head. White grapes, apple, hints of spicyness and lemony notes in aroma. Slightly tart mouthfeel. White wine, apple and pear in taste as well, but also notes of lemon and summer meadow appears later on. Sweet fruity bready notes in finish with a spicy twist in the end.

Bottle, tasting at Appellation Wines. Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Classic Belgian aroma of peppery spice and yeast. Flavour of lemon meringue, yeast and straw. Medium body with a frothy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Incredibly easy drinking for its strength.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light opaque beer with a weak head and generous bubbliness. Lively carbonation.
The smell is citric metallic mixed with minerals and wood. Very champagne-like. Very subtly fruity.
On the mouth it is quite sweet, marshmallow-like almost. Subtle alcoholic sweetness and again the champagne dominance of minerals and wood. Some earthiness too. Herby graininess. Some coriander.
Quite bitter sour but with a nice watery feel to balance it off. Astringent finish.
Quite an experience! Take care to follow the serving instructions carefully, especially the low temperature, otherwise the sweetness becomes quite overbearing.

Ik ben geen fan van champagne, maar dit heeft net de goede verhouding tussen bier en champagne voor goed te zijn. Lekker

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden pour...thick white head...lively...great retention. Aroma has light ginger and spice...mild sweet fruitness. Flavor follows suit...lots of delicate ginger and spice...getting chamomile...mild sweetness and fruitiness...touch of leather and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light but very silky and lively with a dry, spicy/gingery finish that dries to earthy/fruity bitterness and warms. Great beer.
