2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle, and ... and surprise, a gusher. lot# 728, BB 07/2016.
Orangée, col fin blanc disparaissant vite.
Arôme au bouquet très Alvinne surtout dans la levure, malt léger, pointe houblonnée fleuri avec un côté champenois - peut être du à cette haute effervescence, rétro épicé.
Palais est légèrement épicé - poivré, malt avec une impression de cardamone et de mousse. Malt pâle et caramel avec une pointe surette sur la fin, venant sans hésiter de la levure.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22/02/2015 @ home - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck.
Hazy orange colour with small dissipating head. Aroma is bready, spicy. Taste loads of yeast, spices some sourness. Something didn’t seem right. Maybe infected? Might try the other bottle I have and try a rerate but for now?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Tripel-like specialty beer commissioned by Pado in Tielt. Cream white head, foggy peach blonde robe. Bready and fruity aroma, apple, strawberry, banana and dried apricot, soft honeyish malt sweetness with a refreshing lemony accent, flowery hoppy finish. This has clearly improved since it was first made ten years ago, it has gained body, complexity and balance, so I will only take the current version into account for this rating.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white creamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is fruity, spicy, rathery malty as well as slightly yeasty notes. Flavour is fruity, spicy, a bit yeasty and also has some slight notes of alcohol and also some strange vegetablylike notes. Except for the slight vegetably notes this was a rather pleasant brew.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.
Pours muddy pale yellow with a firm, frothy, white head. Aroma is heavy white pepper, sweet malts, fair grassiness. Meidum, prickly carbonation, fine light oily mouthfeel. Flavour has light tartness, lots of pepper, light ginger touch. There is some milkiness to the tartness that makes me think that it is not intended. Lots of peppery bitterness at the end though.
