Made in the style produced by Trappist monks in the Abbeys of Belgium, Resurrection has complexities not unlike wine and there are very definite spicy/herbal characters both on the nose and palate. Deep copper red in colour with a light white head. The nose has distinct bubblegum, spice and herbal characters from the yeast used and the fermentation regime. These aromas are noticeable on the palate too along with a Gewürztraminer wine-like perfume. The palate is complex and rich but balanced with a cleansing bitterness. Drink with care! We suggest warming your glass with cupped hands to fully release the flavours and aromas of Resurrection.

Served a mahogany color with a small head that fades to just bits of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, spice and herbal. Taste of dark fruit, with a solid presence of malt in the background with some spice. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Medium body,smooth with a richness that increases as it warms. Enjoyable sipper, from a brewer that tends to lean towards british style ales. Worth checking out.

Draught at Galbraith’s Alehouse, Auckland. Pours dark copper with a creamy beige head. Great aroma of fruit, spice, bubblegum and a little yeastiness. Pleasant flavour of fruit and spice, I was also detecting slight alcoholic notes coming through. A nice surprise at the brewpub.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 20, 2004
this is apparently similar to the old australis benediction that i was hoping to find. it's hazy orange, with that spicy chimay yeast smell. flavour's pretty complex: very yeasty-spicy, orangey, alcoholic, peppery and leafily hoppy. Quite bitter, and tart. Tastes a lot like Chimay White, but lacks smoothness and fullness of body (maybe would be better with age?).

Tasted 23/03/2005. Off tap at Galbraith’s ale house. Nice kiwi/english style belgian ale. Good medium to full mouthfeel with a caramelly orange malt flavour and hints of licorice, a spicey yeastiness and a woody hop flavour. All very smoothly delivered. Warms both the mouth and the body. Nights here with TheGrandmaster and Joe warm the heart and stimulate the mind. Best pub in NZ.

Ahhhh another late night finisher....one of my favourite memories of this beer is Matt’s wife drinking 6 in 2 hours and us having to carry her to the taxi! Pours a deep red in the glass with hints of spice in the aroma, herbal and winey in the palate...a lovely drop!

Bloody heck! This is an impressive NZ-made Belgian beer. I could drink too much of this. Actually 8.7% now and served in a huge chunky goblet. Winey aroma with fruit preserves. Chewy bubblegum, viscous... Firm, strong dry and yeasty, full taste, sweet and bitter and lightly sour too. It’s big and balanced - I was reminded of Delerium Tremens. Good cold, a fireside treat. Will have to try again and not after so many other beers...
