4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ML bottle purchased at my new place of work- World Market in Redding, CA. Pour: Medium light straw color. Aroma / Bouquet: Yeasty, straw, grassy. Taste: almost a hot spiciness to it. (Very similar to a Grand Cru in style) Palate: high carbonation that hits all around the tongue. Has a nice almost "Poire Williams" flavor and finish to it. Awesome product, but I prefer the Blauw (Blue) a bit better!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Belgian yeast, hops, sweet fruit.
Golden/yellow beer with a huge white head thanks to all the carbonation.
The foam tastes like fruit juice and that’s not even the beer itself. Starts sweet with a mix of everything mentioned in the aroma. Really juicy and fruity, amazing.

Hazy yellow with no head. Aroma of tangerine. Taste is very sweet, too much sugar. Still citric and malty. But too sweet. Not my style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really nice one, reminds me of a Tripel, 750 ml. bottle, 2013 vintage. Pour is hazy gold with a medium, dense white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma of pear, apricot, herbs, and honey. Balanced flavor, on the dry side, earthy hops, fruity, light bitterness, refreshing despite high alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, balanced finish. I like this one a lot better than the blue version, which is too sweet and syrupy. "Served with pride, it is drunken with respect."
