3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear deep golden with an amber hue. Huge fizzy carbonated head fills half the glass. Floral slightly perfumy aromas with faint clove and pepper.Mouthfeel is medium and initially highly effervescent which does calm down. Flavor is dissapointing. There’s some sugary sweetness there and a light bitterness but that’s about all.

Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle
Clear yellow body with a white head. Very strong nose of clover honey and apples. Light bodied, mead-like clover honey flavor, very sugary and thin. This could almost pass for mead. Pungent, cloying and too heavy, regardless of how thin it may seem. Weird.

#800. Gushed a little upon opening the bottle, lasting white head on a bubbly orange-red body. Nose consists of sour apple and grape while the taste is of mango and green melon with some spice, but not sweet. Dances on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (BB 07/2006)
Amber, with the shades of red, decent, lacey off-white head. Aroma has malts, yeast and leather. Liquerish palate, but same time carbonated and smooth. Toffee sweet with fruits - medium-bodied malty with some yeastyness. Some late alcohol bitterness and sharp metals when it warms up. Quite drinkable though lacks depth.

My second Steenberge beer in a row tonight according to this site...33cl bottle, head formed and fell, leaving just a covering and a touch of lace. Beer is amber colored. Wierd spicy peppery, citrus terriaky sauce aroma...drinks with some toffee sort of malt flavor, with lots of fruitiness to it, and a peppery sweet/dry finish. Ya know, this really reminds me of a homebrewed ambree I did, Bastogne yeast, horizon hops, a touch of corriander...except mine was about 10-11%ABV, and a bit more refined than this...this is a pretty interesting beer though, the spiciness of it seems to be the dominant character...I mean, would you want to put cracked pepper on your apricot or peach or orange? Things just seem to be fighting each other here, to the detriment of my palate! And this has a pretty big body, and lacks much balance in the finish...what starts out with a little promise falters in the end...but not horribly so...it just seems misguided to me...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy amber color with an enormous(!) white and lacy head. Caramely, fruity and flowery candy/bubblegum aroma with a hint of alcohol and berries. Sweet, lemony and toffee-caramely flavor with an acidic and quite bitter, carbonated finish. Hides the ABV well. Medium-bodied, sugary-sweet and foamy-carbonated palate. Slightly too thin, sweet and carbonated, but otherwise quite pleasant brew.
