kevinsenn (1432) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle. Spicy and tart aroma. No tartness in the taste, but lots of sweetness and spiciness. Like a spice cookie. Sweet, not dry, finish. Good but a bit too sweet.

a very strong belgian flavored ale. Tons of caarb, booze and malts. Tastes fresh, pretty authentic, The carb hides the sweetness well. Dry finish.

nimbleprop (5787) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2015
750ml bottle I’ve had in the cellar maybe 15months. Pours a mostly clear gold with some frothy, white head. Nose has some candy sweetness, some honey, lots of white grape - muscato mostly, mild spice, mild yeast. Flavor reminded me of a mead mixed with champagne, the honey character is not only in the taste but also the mouthfeel which is enveloping, lots of white grape too, some yeast... but honestly the flavor fell off some. Again, fairly easy to drink at 11%.

Lukaduke (2654) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a medium golden color with nice clarity and three fingers of tight bubbled white foam. Nose is bready malt, honey, some yeasty fruit esters and a touch of spice. Palate follows with a great fizzy mouthfeel that prickles up front then softens with creamy focused layers of malt, belgian candi sugar and balanced yeast complexity. Solid brew.

CamdenD (1113) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2013
A very well-made offering from a brewery making noise. The name suggests a beer with more dryness but the tripel-like characters to this work well nonetheless. 11%? Hardly notice it... uh oh.

Pours a golden straw color with moderate white head. Smells of fruit and yeast and tastes of white grape , cream and light vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear gold...small off-white head. Mild fruit, vanilla, yeast aroma. Taste is soft, white grape, cream, citrus. Nicely balanced alcohol delivery. Delicious.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle. Funky lemon malt and alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet, funky lemon malt and bitter herbal flavor with a moderate alcohol finish. Unsurprisingly on the boozy side but overall very nice.

AirForceHops (4345) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2013
750 ml bottle From Redstone Liquors in Stoneham, MA. Lightly hazy white gold color. Fizzy carbonation as I was expecting. Aroma of yeast, citrus, grain and light fruit. Taste of yeast, citrus, apple, banana and plenty of malt. The citrus vanishes and transitions to lots of bready malts. Medium body with the ABV being completely hidden. This gets points for using the champagne yeast and being on the experimental side. The price tag was a tad high. However, if you want something unique for special occasions this could be your brew. Try it if you see it in the Greater Boston area.
