3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big foam, but quite short lasting with frothy head. Hazy with little yeast (?) suspended in it. Copper color. Nice, malty aroma with some "cellary" notes. Belgian character is straightforward. Quite citrusy, mellow nose with dominating malt. In the first taste it is fairly dry, then there is a lot of malty sweetness. Everything is nicely contrasted with belgian, little phenolic, spicy character. Carbonation is medium, goes well with mouthfeel. After heating the beer, alcohol becomes noticable, but still very nicely hidden in compare to its real content. Very good biere de garde.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber-brown body topped off with a fluffy white head. Lemon, funk, cinnamon, banana, bubblegum and flowers on the nose. Slightly sour in the mouth at the start, followed up by a lemon zest hit overlaid with peppery spice. Silky, almost marshmallow like, mouth feel. Zesty finish leads into a spicy aftertaste. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from 2014. Not a gusher.
Pours a semi clear deep gold with plenty of long lasting foam. Serious lacing.
Spicy fruity malty nose with an apple like presence that suggests dryness. Hmm. .that’s an expected quality from the style.
Fruity again with an almost tart flavour or 2. Malty and spicy and hoppy with the latter bringing a lot of dryness. I like the interaction between the malt and hops.
Medium body with very lively carbonation.
I expected something good considering the brewery; I was not disappointed.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bloody awesome! Amazing balance, rich malt and ester, belgian bretto taste, preserved fruit, subtle sweet molasses behind the hop/yeast dominance. Can’t wait to try again!
