3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amver color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, spicy, definitely "Belgian." Flavor carries through some of that nice fruitiness, but there’s a little bit of an alcohol burn on the back. The bottle says this will age for up to 5 years. Might have to pick up another at let it sit for a bit. Good complex Belgian beer though.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. A strong pale ale that is attenuated enough to pass for a lager, and demonstrates quite well the absurdity of the belief that there is a major split in beer production along the lines of "ale" and "lager". There is evidence of unfermented sugar - returning the sweetness that has been brewed out, and giving condition to the brewed out beer. There is a flowery, mildly fragrant quality from the yeast - some honeyed fruit from the pale malt, and a tropical fruit from the hops. It’s a fairly predictable beer, a little hot from the fully brewed alcohol, and not very attractive. It tastes like a curious blend of super strength lager, APA , sugar alcohol, and a Belgian blonde. The blend, obviously, doesn’t work. This comes across as quite crude and nasty. Yugh.
