3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is weird but not in a bad way. It has this citrus pineapple banana things going on and I can’t help but wonder if it is only yeast and hops or is there fruit in this one. It’s so fruity I can’t get much else out of it. It’s estered to the max! The appearance is amber gold with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and again it’s one of the strangest beers that I have had. It’s a bit sour to go along with the sweet and its also strong. The palate is thick. Overall a really really odd beer but I dig it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bouteille, vintage 2010.
Dorée/orange, mousse épaisse blanche.
Arôme, levure belge donnant un nez aromatisé et épicé, des notes de fleurs et herbes avec du jus de coco. Un côté sympa sucré, malt.
Goût, épais au palais, dans les mêmes tons que l’arôme, je note pas mal de notes florales et d’épices, sucre brun, peut-être des feuilles d’hibiscus? ou des tons de noix de coco. Le palais me rappelle étrangement la Saison Athènes de St-Somewhere du moins de part son aspect sucre-caramélisé avec ces notes de fleurs. Le levure belge est bien là donnant un cote herbacé et poivré.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mason’s Pub. Pours a deep gold color with minimal head. The aroma is apple cider, dark fruits and spices. The flavor is interesting; there is a significant sweet element, but the main element is sour, like a granny smith apple. There is a little hop bitterness, but not enough to notice. The palate is medium to heavy, with a crisp and kinda effervescent feel. Quite an interesting brew.

Tastes of Belgian yeast, pale malt, fruit, sugar, slight alcohol, and light clove. Medium body. Tingly, lightly dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Heavily sweet, Belgian yeast, pale malt, clove and sugar finish is lightly dry. 10%ABV is very well hidden throughout, though slightly noticeable in the flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Red pour, thin tan head. Decent legs. Aroma of incense, dried apple sweetness, maybe some raisin and dark fruit. Very strong. Burns alittle. Flavor of apple fiber (dominate), natural cane sugar (earthy), caramel, plantain, and peppery spice. Lots of booze, I’m gonna sleep well tonight.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange/coppery pour with a thin white head. Strong aroma, very sweet with a some dark fruit, caramel, raisin, apple and a bit of yeast. Sweet, sweet flavor, more caramel and candy than the fruity aroma. Little bit of alcohol on the tongue. Lingering sweetness and light hop bitterness. Close to being cloying but the description is right - it is a sipping beer. This is one to sip and drink slowly. Good!
