The beer pours a copper-tinged gold with a this white cap. Aroma is light fruits, sweet malt, must and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is very musty with yeast, tart fruits, and some burnt wood. Quite enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep honey colour with a thin frothy white cap. The aroma is sweet, cider and toffee being most prominent with under tones of honey, and an odd butter diacetyl note. The flavour is very cider dominant, under tones of grassy hops, esters, finishes on cider and buttery diacetyl. The butter notes are really killin this for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Honey, light grain, spices and some yeast. Clear gold with a decent white head. Very effervescent, honey, grain, yeas and booze. The carbonation gives it a bit of bite. A bit too much booze in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Merry Christmas to me...evil north of France 750 for me. Fruity aroma of yeast, butter and sugar. Glowing orange appearance. Tastes of metal, tart salt, and sugar. Too sticky to be called dry, although thin enough to be quaffable. This type of beer is an acquired taste, like the beef stew it stood up next to this afternoon.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 15.06.14 L50.5.10.
App.: Clear deep golden/light amber with a so-so white head.
Aroma: Awful...buttery, oxidized, fruity, wet cigar ash, alcohol, yeast, citrus, Belgian esters, biscuity malt, honey, cloying sweetness, slightly earthy, messy.
Palate: Medium+ body, fine, somewhat relaxed effervescence.
Flav.: Quite fruity, dirtier than the nose, sweet but not quite cloying, fairly pronounced alcohol, slightly buttery, oxidized, a complete mess; off dry with basically no bitterness and an oddly thin finish that leaves a little dirty, oxidized fruitiness.
At least I can keep the swing-top bottle. Drain pour!
