Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
2008 edition. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is citrus fruit, bread and toffee. The flavor is Belgian yeast, orange citrus and some very sugary syrup notes. Very sweet. There is little or no detectable alcohol, despite the beer clocking in at 9 percent. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A spicy fluffy Belgian blonde ale with a gingerbread man flavor
How: Bottle 330ml. Vintage 2008. Consumed when about 2 year of age.
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Strong yeasty, tangy and spicy nose. Taste has candied oranges, tea, lots of fresh ginger, cookies, yeast, banana puree, salt, white sugar, gingerbread man. Very lively full and fluffy body. A lot of stuff going on but really cohesive. The beer is actually quite tasty, borderline intense. A decent beer but not something I really needed to drink. A year ago I thought about cutting down on my beer drinking. It’s the thought that counts.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2008 edition. Mixed feelings on this, poureda lot of yeasty foam and had good aromas of fruity yeast and some spices. However the fragments of reddish pieces were disconcerting. Creamy mouthfeel. Drinkable, strong, above average carbonation

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008 botle. Hazy blonde with a small but lasting white head. Apples, butter caramel and sweet honey nose. Medium to full body, heavy carbonation, sweet malt at first, finishes on a butter caramel note and a slightly astringent finish. Nice winter warmer, not very complex, but kind of satisfying without noticing it...
