4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’m learning about the Belgian beers and this one was another delight. The palate was nice and heavy while the taste had nice rich caramel overtones The 10.5% alcohol was somewhat muted, okay maybe it tasted like a 8.5-9.0% beer. I actually like a beer that is not too hot. It was a beer I picked up understand the Belgian beers and will try it again when I have the chance.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
Amber brew with nice head that does fade down to thin head fast. Smells of fruit and alcohol. Taste is alcohol, fruit, slightly sour, almost like a wine. This is the 4th brew out of a sampler 6 pack from this brewery and unfortunately this one is a let down after the others I tried. Two more to try and I hope they are better than this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clearish copper color with a sticky off-white head. Aroma zest and yeasty, notes of black pepper and Belgian yeast spice. Taste yeasty, sweet, phenolic, zesty on the border of spritzy, the high carbonation lightens the body and helps hide the alcohol, as well as give a dry finish. Warming sensation down the throat reminds you that it’s still a 10.5% beer. This feels more like a Triple on steroids than a true quadruple.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ambrata carica, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, bella testa di schiuma che svanisce velocemente.
Aroma di uva passa, zucchero di canna e lievi note di fico, a naso ricorda un pochino il vin santo.
Al palato uva passa, fichi e zucchero di canna, leggero piccante dato dall'alcol che si ripresenta dopo qualche secondo scaldando la bevuta.
Corpo pieno, mediamente carbonata.
Molto buona, anche se l'originale la ritengo superiore.
