4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle from Peluso, enjoyed with a meal. Nice apple flavours, fruity, fresh, the alcool is not to present. As the beer became warmer, caramel tones became more present and alcool also. At 20$ a bottle this had serious potential to disappoint but it did not. I would buy again. A special beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle at a Trou du Diable barrel-aged tasting at Volo, served in a stem glass. Pours clear orange with a few bubbles but no head. The nose has notes of sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, toasted oak and subtle tripel spice. The flavour is moderately sweet with caramel, brown sugar, oak barrel, Belgian spice. The finish is long and malty with Belgian spice along with subtle apple notes. On the palate, medium in body with a smooth milky texture and minimal carbonation. Overall a great barrel aged Belgian-style ale. Delicious. 2013-05-25

Bottle thanks to my Canadian friend Mark, who muled some Surly north of the border and returned with this beauty. Bottle gushed just a bit when opened. Hazy dark amber pour with a white head. Stone fruit nose with some funk. This is a real boozer in the taste, with a nice heat in the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel, slightly sweet malty that moves into a plethora of fruits, straw and finishing just a bit bitter with a nice heat. Really nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Darkish yellow with a pale head. Aroma is brett, pear, apricot, dried fruits. Medium bodied, sweet and sour on the palate, great balance. Taste is citrus peel, dried peach, dried pear, apricot. Much nicer than the regular version.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 20/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a resilient white head. Aroma is pear, tartness, yeast, vanilla cake. Flavor is woody, apple, brandy, butter candy, wild fruit, lemon, orange, pear, mint. Finish is lemon, lime, citrus, peels, vanilla, peach, apricot. Lingering spices and mints. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Pretty much a masterpiece.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite the beer, but I think I prefer the regular. The barrel certainly changes this. Nice apple finish. Pours orange clear without much head or lacing. Barrel is very prominent and dominates aroma. A little boozy as well. Some sweet malt as well and light perfume. Bottle at Volo for Zwanze Day.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Un petit quelque chose de spécial pour mon 300e rating! Bouteille 750ml. Couleur orangée translucide, mousse blanche dense laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de vanille, pomme, brett, alcool léger, boisé. Goût de pomme, alcool, légère acidité, légère amertume en fin de bouche, boisé en arrière-goût. Carbonation faible, corps moyen-dense.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Bottle - The apples come through with the barrels and the typical brett smells. Cloudy orange with a good white head. Apple, apricot, oak, brett and some grape. Acidity and a bit of burn. An interesting beer but not as good as some of their others I have had the pleasure to try.
