4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Purchased 11.2 oz. bottle at World Market in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Pours a extreme rocky, whipped "egg-white" dense head, (reminds me of Duvel) The brewer wants you to pour it slowly; at a pace to still have a good 3-4 finger head on it, but not to distrub the yeast at the bottom of the bottle. He would like for you to save the yeast in a shot glass. I failed miserably at this; I poured it too quickly and got the yeast in my glass... Oh well, I love yeast in beers. With the yeast, it is a murky golden color. Beautiful Brussels lace on the sides of the glass as the head collapses. AROMA / BOUQUET: The hop / yeast balance is very complex; it almost has a champagne bouquet. Sweet pear, fresh baked bread, the esters in this beers are beautiful. TASTE: Sherry dryness yet creamy- very hard to describe. The head retention is throughout the entire beer- great sign of a great beer. PALATE / MOUTHFEEL: The dryness of this beer assaults the olfactory senses; the malt / hop / yeast balance hit the entire mouth, but the bitterness lingers on the back of the tongue. OVERALL: This beer deserves a higher rating- it is a very complex beer. Enjoy as a session beer, or with port salut, olive tapenade and crackers!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle purchased in Skopje and drunk in Kosovo. Intense golden and opaque color, very tick and tall white foamy head (a persistent cap). Light sweetness in the nose, hay feeling. The mouth is not terrific; the taste is round but nothing really distinguishes this beer. It is a typical Belgian Strong Ale, very dry and therefore easier to drink, a bit of alcohol feel which remains pleasant. This beer does not develop in the mouth as others of the same style do, although it is not bad.

Bottle at Dabbe, Pisa. Hazy golden body with a huge white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of straw, white sugar and bitter hops. Flavour of green apple, salt, orange and underripe pear. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Considering its strength, this is easy drinking and refreshing.

Lekker biertje. Hoppig, fruitig, zoet maar wel stevig. Heerlijk aroma en zachte, bittere afdronk..
