3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours hazy yellow with a dense white head. Aroma is mild peach fruity and citrus fruity in general. Sweet fruity hops flavour with a solid malt base and some fruity note lingering on top. Finish is mellow to sweet not so bitter as such. Nice brew but tastes a bit like a down watered Struise-Mikkeller brew. Not bad but somehow Belgian yeast and american hops just don’t go well together.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet citrusy hoppy with some spice notes. The flavor is sweet lightly malty with strong notes of malt and citrusy hops. I don’t think the hops and yeast work that well togther.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Hazy, pale golden with a tall, bubbly and very lively, white head. Sweet aroma of malt and yeast. Full-bodied with very sweet malts and a distinct yeastiness. Some medicinal notes. A little low in carbonation. Subdued bitterness. I don’t really recall any of those US/Belgian hybrid beers that have left a markable impression. This was no exception. 191207

Bottled, thanks rickgordon! Lightly hazy golden, lasting head. Rich hoppy grassy nose with fruit and doughy malt underneath. A deep mouthfilling flavour of buttery malt and black currant. Hops are evident but not assaulting. Long grassy finish. Very good - one of the better of these new wave hoppy Belgian beers.

Courtesy of Stefano; brewed 2007, 3 years old
Hazy blond color; solid head, big. The aroma is a bit grassy. Dryish mouthfeel, good body strength, a bit spicy. But unfortunately the hop qualities are basically gone. It’s now very similar to the ordinary Duvel.
