3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First of all, I think this bottle was infected or something. Would not stop gushing foam for several minutes, will rate again if the next bottle is different. Aroma definitely hinted that something was happening to the yeast, and flavor was way too sour for what this was supposed to be. Again, will re-rate with a different bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(375ml 2014 bottle from Systembolaget, cellared ~1yr) Pours a lightly hazy medium gold with a pillowy, lasting white head and lots of lace. Aroma has a core of lightly sweet malt with a bunch of wheat character and a little fruitiness, coriander, wet grass, citrus peels, peppery/lemongrass sort of hop/phenolic mix. Palate is light to moderate sweet to start with a touch of caramel, orange, peach, wheat, transitioning into a more dry and bitter middle with coriander, dry grass, citrus peels, fairly aggressive spicy phenolics. Phenolic, herbal bite lingers into the finish, which has a bit of bread/biscuit and dustier yeast notes as well, some hop bitterness, alcohol heat, and grass in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with high effervescent champagne-style carbonation. A good phenolic rather than estery tripel with a hop bite, but also too much alcohol present, even after a year’s ageing. Perhaps this takes even more time to settle down?

la Bons Voeux est une bière belge à la robe blonde cuivrée, trouble et à la mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez présente de beaux arômes de houblons et d'épices, notamment sur la coriandre. En bouche, le léger moelleux en attaque laisse peu à peu place à de belles notes maltées avant un final amer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nez: Malté, citron, pin, floral
Bouche: Maltée, citron, épicée, herbacée, pin
Bel attaque fruitée avec une amertume moyenne longue en fin de bouche et une légère astringence.
Une triple fruitée bien réussie dans laquelle on ne sent pas trop les 9.5 degrés d’alcool en bouche.
