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.

Hazy yellow/gold with thin fizzy head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, banana, grapes, and wheat. Semi-sweet with grapes-esque flavoring along with typical Belgian yeast notes. Nice ale.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear very light yellow with quickly diminishing low white head. Aroma of grapefruit, winey, a bit hoppy, herbs, a bit alcoholic. Flavor of sweet grapefruit, fruity, white wine, alcoholic. Sticky sweet aftertaste. Light carbonation, light to medium-bodied.

Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Floral and milkly sweet malty start, Mild yeast and spice. Mellow orangey citrus. Whisper of lemon. Light dry finish. Not really engaging me that much but it’s drinkable,

rader58 (783) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 23, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours very pale yellow. Aroma of coriander, citrus, banana, grain. Flavor of citrus, banana, grape, grain. A lighter flavored beer that has some semblance of a white wine. Not bad, but not something I really enjoy.

tlyx (63) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
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 (4876) - 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.

Rich71 (25) - Rijnsburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
Dun bier wat erg snel z’n schuim verliest. Smaakt als een dunne chimay tripel met een lichte citroen smaak.

SirLimpsalot (2255) - 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 (2973) - 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
