3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013 corked and caged 750ml bottle.
A good pop when I pulled the cork out. Despite a careful pour, I still get a 3 finger head of billowy foam. The colour is orange yellow and cloudy.
It smells spicy and fruity and yeasty. Coriander, very light clove, apple and probably peach.
The taste has the spice with the clove being more aggressive, coriander, and the fruit I mentioned in the smell. Some sweet flavour but also a mild hop bitterness in there as well. It finishes very dry. Alcohol is not intrusive.
Medium bodied and not too shabby a drinker, this is nice.

Bottled 0.75 liter, 2012 vintage sampled in 2014, gift from a collegue. Slightly hazy golden colored, lasting white head. Pretty fruity nose, citrus, lots of spices, some malts and hops. Somewhat dry and bitter flavor, quite fruity, later on some sugary sweetness shines through, alcohol certainly apparant but not disturbingly. High (perhaps a bit too high) on carbonation. Lasting dry finish. Feels like a fruity and slighltly more alcoholic version a Westmalle Tripel. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.75 bottle. Dark, hazy, amber liquid and a big, white head. Typical sweet and sour aroma of honey, citruses, peach, wheat, spices, and floral scents. Sweet, malty taste with citruses and a lot of ginger, quite spicy. Medium body, creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish features even more ginger and citruses, quite unexpected. Overall this is a high quality beer but it is dwarfed by its blue brother.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Ik heb deze van tap op en ik moet zeggen dat dit misschien wel een van de lekkerste bieren is die ik ooit gedronken heb. Superzacht maar verradelijk zwaar.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transparent golden, white foamy head. Interesting sweet nose, spirited, floral, spicy and sweet. Taste is big on sweet Belgian malts and yeast with honey, vanilla, orange peel and peach, ginger, spicy, a little (malt-)bitter and a nice alcoholic, even boozy burn (also reminiscent of a spirit, like a cognac or liquor 43). Complex. Lively carbonation, oily mouthfeel, big bodied. Very nice but I like the blue Cuvee better.
