3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2010 vintage. Purchased 12 oz bottle @ Juilo’s Liquors Westborough, MA. Price $3.25 with Wild Six discount. Used a snifter, golden hazy poor. Thin white head with spotty lace. Typical Belgian ale. Fruity with spices, yeast and a light bitterness. Dry in the finish. Nice alcohol warming on the way down. I don’t understand the real bad ratings?? Is it top tier? No, it’s not BUT it IS drinkable for the style. It is real sweet, guessing it would improve greatly over time. Overall, I still think it’s refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a good beer, but hey, it’s new to me. Weak floral aroma, but a nice Belgian secondary aroma. Surprisingly 8.5% abv. Odd flavor, maybe clovey, maybe bananas. Definitely not pleasant.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
This is the worst beer that I have ever tasted. It does not taste like beer at all, but like some mysterious concoction. It is so bad that I could not finish one bottle. I have two more bottles that I will cellar for 2 or 3 years to see if it becomes drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour caramel and hot alcohol aromas. Dry with sweet biscuit and caramel upfront turning to dusty hay in the sweet, medium-length finish. Too sweet...but I didn’t have 2-3 years to wait...

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Shit on a shingle, this beer is sweet. And as I struggle for adjectives to use in its description, I’m left ashamed of myself for being such a early-thirties cynic. But this bottle is bad, bad beer, sickeningly saccharine, with a funky, soured-yeast aftertaste that refuses to leave your palate long after you’ve given up on this pint. (8/08)

Bottle at Papsø. It pours bit hazy with a medium white head. The aroma is light spicy, caramel and light hoppy. The flavour is diacetyl, sweet caramel, light hops and fruit.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 5/10/11 from a 12oz bottle obtained as an extra in a trade, 2008 vintage. Pours cloudy burnt orange with an average white head that quickly recedes to nothing at all. The nose is banana, fruity yeast, bread and caramel malt, with a bit of nutty oxidation beginning to set in. The flavor is quite sweet with caramel, brown sugar, and a bit of light underlying banana. The body is full with light carbonation and a long, sweet finish.
