2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 65 cl. Pours pale yellow with a slight haze and a lively yet dissipating white head. Very spicy aroma, citric and zesty. Rich body, malt base has a strangely rotten note, very unpleasant. I have no clue what’s going on here, but it’s not nice at all. 010915

Poured from the bomber, hazy glowing golden with a lot of fizz and foam. Soda like carbonation, nice and strong. Not usually what I look to great divide to provide, but I’ll buy at 8.2% and not disappointed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska från SB. BBD dec-14. Smutsgul, grumligt, medelhögt smutsvitt skum. Tolkar den här som en imperial wit. Har witens friskhet, jästkaraktär och kryddning men med mer kropp, sötma och fyllighet. Funkar riktigt bra. Bra balans. Funkar att dricka upp själv vilket inte kan sägas om många belgare på 8+%

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy blonde white head. Really mild nose of yeast, hay malts and a little citrus. Taste of citrus and a little acidic zest bite, those hay malts show up, and some nice yeast, and the crisp white wine flavours shows up in the finish. Aftertaste is a fresh tangerine. Very mild beer, very, very drinkable. Should be sitting at the dock drinking this one. Very nice. Surprised at the wild ratings swings on this one. I think it’s a solid choice. ’Course unless I head down to Buffalo I’ll never have it again, thanks LCBO.
