3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served at cellar temperature in a Duvel glass. Big fluffy lasting head laces generously when it fails atop the translucent amber-gold body....grassy, initially pil-like fresh aroma on more exploration offers some funkiness, but also a touch of skunk-like unpleasantness....the body is moderately sweet to start, some tart notes coming in midpalate, with a lightly sour, milky character towards the finish, a bit of vegetal character....I get the feeling that the wheat and especially the rice did not favor this beer; on the whole, so-so.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled Booths. Interesting chalk and concrete notes, but soon taken over by soapy pineapple and peach flavours. Smooth sweetness, light Belgian yeastiness. Lovely gold/amber appearance. Plummy finish. A characterful beer

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle bb04/2016 from Colmar. (Overly) Clean transparent golden pour. Nose of diluted honey, some toast and warning alcohol. Herbal, metallic hops join faintly almond-like refined pale malts offering up some notes of apricot and apple, before drifting off into amped, boozy Imperial Pilsner nomansland, towards a clean, almost Calvados/jenever finish with a bitter herbal hop insistence. Biere de Garde/Tripel crossover in that respect. Overall rather well done, but a bit of an onslaught.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heavy on the marzipan flavours. It’s okay but it’s a bit sickly to be honest.
