4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours exactly the way a light belgian strong ale should - golden with a big off white head that takes a while to recede, leaving a nice lacing. Sensational aroma of candi sugar, belgian yeast, floral notes and some booze. The taste is certainly not disappointing either, with light honey and spices in addition to the flavours hinted at by the aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. The yeast is the star of this impressive brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl in teku glass. Pours an abundant, creamy, long lasting and pearl white head; yellow to golden very hazy colour. Smells very "belgian", yeasty, dough, cheesy, honey, candied fruits, a bit hoppy, leaves. Tastes fruity, yeasty, apples, citrus hops, juicy, hint of pleasant alcohol notes; low to medium sweetness and bitterness, extremly balanced leaves the palate with a refershing hoppy and delicate hoppy sensation; slight tartness. Average and just right carbonation, medium to full bodied, slick texture. Remembers in "some" ways a Delirium Tremens, obviously much more consistent and complex. Nice drinkability for the abv, extremly balanced, a really great belgian blondie

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015/01/20 - Vintage 2011. Pours a hazy orange/straw colour with a thin, foamy, white head that quickly reduces to a surface film. No lacing. Smells amazing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, dough, strong honey and fruity esters (peach, apricot & banana). Taste is similar to nose; lots of honey and fruits, yeast, bready notes and mild alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium, with average carbonation and a drying, mildly warming finish. I really, really enjoyed this beer. One of the best smelling beers I have ever tried.
750ml bottle, BBE 02/08/15, 2012 vintage. Pours a light yellow, somewhat hazy, large white head. Aroma is very fruity. Taste is pretty stingy with ethanol. But the ethanol is pretty strong. Dries up the finish. Full with medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle, BBE 02/08/15, 2012 vintage. Pours a light yellow, somewhat hazy, large white head. Aroma is very fruity. Banana, apricot, peach, a gamut of fruit - of the Belgian beer variety, not the American hops style citrus or grapefruit. Taste is pretty stingy with ethanol. The fruitiness is there, along with some pale malts and light smoke. But the ethanol is pretty strong. Dries up the finish. Full with medium carbonation.
