COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian-style Ale is a golden example of our traditional bold character, but with a little something special to commemorate this milestone. Fermented with Viognier grape juice, 20th Anniversary is both delicate and assertive. Big without being brutish, cunning without being cloying, this is a grown-up beer for a big-time celebration.

Doften är fruktigt, nyklippt gräs, citruskaramell. Smakar fuktigt, pulverkaramell. Mycket kolsyra med stora bubblor. Liten beska som lägger sig som en film över tungan.

gyllenbock (4864) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of fruit, belgian yeast, some light grass, malt and caramel. Almost with a full body and well hidden alcohol. An ok one.

Dun bier wat erg snel z’n schuim verliest. Smaakt als een dunne chimay tripel met een lichte citroen smaak.

SirLimpsalot (2250) - SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2014
@ Gyllenbock 14-10-11: typisk belgisk med lite extra citrus. Lite rå och torr i smaken men absolut godkänt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Palidor19 (2966) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2014
While there no flaws in this beer there are no superior flavors especially due to it being a anniversary beer. Mold belgian malts and spices, slight sugar taste. Good but not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is malty grassy and yeasty. The appearance is golden with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall average beer.

UncleKorm (846) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bomber bottle poured a hazy yellow hue w/ a huge foamy head and beautiful lacing. Big spicy yeast aromas. Initial flavor is light sour w/ a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are lemon and grapefruit citrus, Belgian yeast and white wine. Medium bodied and lively carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Moderate dark fruit, yeast, grape juice, brown sugar, and honey-baked biscuit. You’d think that they’d want to make their 20th Anniversary special...guess not! Meh.
