3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This smelled the part but was otherwise disappointing. And older bottle, this was flat, not just mellow. The flavor was good but kind of boring. Just not quite great.

Bottle at home
Almost clear copper body and ad off-white head. Aroma of sweet, slightly sour red fruit. Taste is herbal, maybe juniper berries, rather sweet bit with a bitter dry backtone (the berries). Decent body and carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. 9.0%. BB Nov/12. From Belgium. Courtesy of Brandman.
Hazy darkish amber colour with a small gryish white head.
Strong malt, grain, plastic, blue cheese and mild hops in the aroma.
The flavour is quite repulsive. Alcohol. Strong malt. Hmmm... blah... bad this is.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 6/III/2012 33cl bottle from Mitra (Eindhoven) @ home - BB: XI/12 (2012-218)
Clear amber, light beige, small head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very ripe fruits, a lot of honey, sweet malts, spices, sugary, flowers, dried fruits, some chocolate. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity, overripe fruits, sweet malts, bit vinous, caramel, honey, some banana. Aftertaste: sweet malts, some citrus, honey, slightly bitter ending. Not bad, probably better when very fresh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber honey pour with thick, poofy, white head that slowly collapses. Thick liquid yeasty nose that is tightly wound and potent with esters and bread crusts. The body is yeasty and citric, sour orange underpinning with light breadiness. Eventually, some caramel malts puncture through the oranginess and prick the palate. A fruit-forward Belgian. Somehow this brew falls a bit short of expectations.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured out into Klein Duimpje glass. Forming little to no head, could be because the beer was too cold. Alcohol and malts present in aroma. Fruity yeasts are also present. Subtle, round flavour. Ok balance. Nothing to special, certainly not bad at all.
