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!

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked & caged bottle, vintage 2012, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 10%. Golden colour, huge white head. Sweetish and sugary aroma, with notes of ripe yellow fruits (esp. plums), flowers, white kandij sugar syrup and malts. Medium sweet flavour with the same elements as in the aroma, also mild spicy notes. Pleasant enough to drink.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
75 cl fles. Lichtgoudgele kleur, crêmige kraag die lang blijft. Ruikt .... Beetje zoet, beetje zuur, maar niet erg nadrukkelijk. Smaakt zoetig maar ook wrang, en dat is niet zo mijn ding dat wrange. Wat fruitigs is er ook nog, wat abrikoos in de nasmaak. Ik vind ’m niet zo goed , vlak en saai
