3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma - fruity spicy Belgian style.
Appearance - golden blonde.
Palate - way too fizzy
Taste - a bit hot and unbalanced. Not that impressive. There are better.
Overall - way too carbonated. The cork exploded off the top with the sound of a gun blast.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaska från Craftbeer. Gyllengult, mycket kolsyra och högt skum. Småbullig i munnen, riktigt kryddig och även lite fruktig, alkholvärme, torr trots söta smaker. Anis/fänkål, apelsinsaft, syltade apelsinskal, passionsfrukt. maffig och mycket kryddig men trots det perfekt balanserad och inte för mycket. Riktigt häftig.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
dark yellow in color with a big head - obviously "well" carbonated. aroma is weaker than devotion, malty sweet and spicy with a hint of pepper, which i liked. warming, maybe even a touch hot. feel is too prickly due to the over-carbonation, but it almost works in this beer. flavor much like the aroma. not bad at all, but easily the weakest of the night for LA, and not quite worth the premium coin."

Pours cloudy apricot with a large frothy white head. Aromas of pear, apple, hay, stable, citrus, honey. Taste is quite fruity with pear and apple vying with earthy, musky notes and some nice herbal notes. Mouthfeel is very sprightly and lively wihile at the same time quite dry.

300th ratting- Bottle from Erzbierschof aged during 2 years in my cellar - Clear golden orange color with a decent frothy white head, small lasting and small lacing - Aroma is grainy, malty, dried apricot, dried raisin, spices and hints of alcohol - Flavor is nearly the same grainy, malty, fruity, dried raisin and kumkwat, spicy yeast, hints of earthy and flowery hops - Full body, fizzy carbonation, medium bitterness, dry, dry malty with a kick of alcohol finish - Pretty good beer, dryer than fresh version but the malt backbone show more character with the years, will try it again in two more years - yeast profile and hops seams to fade with the years

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the Lost Abbey beers, this one imitating the Belgian Duvel style, apparently. Off-white, irregular, sticky head, warm orange blonde colour with vivid sparkling, clear but misty after adding the deposit but keeping its warm orange hue. Powerfully fruity nose of pineapple, orange juice, apple peel, vanilla, ginger, banana liqueur, white wine, honey, pepper; overwhelmingly fruity taste with sharp, fresh citrus character and strong, mineral-like carbonation on a smooth and supple, caramelly and honeyishly malty basis, bit oily mouthfeel, spiciness evolving into a long, aromatic hop bitterness with hints of citrus and tonic water, complex and dry. Very American and very enjoyable take on a classic Belgian style.
