On tap at Novare Res. I’m not a Belgian lover by any sense, but this stuff is just plain yummy. Reminds me of their triple very much, but stronger, like an Imperial Gouden Triple or something. Well done again!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL. Pours a clear blonde with a two-finger white head that diminishes to almost nothing leaving patchy lacing. Aromas body odor, apple cider, orange peel, pears, and white grape juice. Taste is white grape juice, apple cider, candied light fruits, and white sugar. High carbonation. Warming alcohol in the finish. Sort of astringent aftertaste. Disappointing.

Bottle, 75cl corked, at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. A pale yellowish golden, hazy beer with a big dense white head. Fruity and citrusy nose with spices, alcohol and pale malts. Alcohol, spices, citrus, banana notes, lots of white sugar sweetness and a good bitterness in the mouth. Warming, full-bodied beer with a long, warm, spiced, slightly citrusy finish. Yummy. A pleasant, smooth and warming Belgian from the upper shelf. (080913)
