3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A 12.7 fl oz corked and caged bottle with no visible best before date and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a cloudy straw yellow colour. Despite pouring extremely carefully, there’s was a crazy huge five finger fluffy white head that has super retention but eventually leaves lots sticky clingy lacing on the glass. Aromas are of pear, apple with some lemon and a hint of banana and clove. Taste was much like the aromas, with pear, apple, white wine grape and lemon to start which then settles to some banana and clove. Finish had some light boozy alcohol feel to it. Dry, medium bodied with huge carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable solid Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

Bottle at home in a snifter. Pours a yellow-gold haze with a one finger head and some very mild lace. Aroma is orange and lemon zest, Belgian yeasts, some barn funk, hay loft, west grass. The taste is at first the orange and lemon zest with funk and hay, then the Belgian yeasts cut in and more funk with a hint of bubblegum at the finish. Dry and big carb. Well balanced. Aged pretty well. Nicely done.

Bottle to tulip
Mango, yeast, esters, wheat, and grains. Hazy dark amber with a voluminous 2.5 cm frothy head that seems to slowly settle reasonably fast. The effervescence is abundant and lacing is low. Taste is wheat and yeast, with some light fruitiness and a bitter finish. On the palate, it’s medium light bodied with some chalk.

Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of sweet fruit, grass and slight booze. Taste is oily christmas fruits with smooth marmelade. yeast notes. Pleasant and mild but still with an attitude.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Cork shot off hard into my hand upon uncaging. Took a while to fully pour. Pours hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 3 finger dense and rocky off white head with insane retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy/peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, grape, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian strong pale ale style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notas intensas a levadura, dejando de fondo cítricos y especias.
Color dorado pálida con notable turbidez. Cuerpo ligero, carbonatacion media, Corona de espuma abundante de media retención.
En boca equilibrada con las notas a levadura que destacan.
Al paladar son notas muy equilibradas entre dulzor de la malta y amargor del Lúpulo. Nuevamente ls levadura da el toque predominante, sin embargo las notas cítricas principalmente a naranja dejan muy buen sabor.
En general es buena cerveza, en la cual no se percibe la potencia alcohólica, las notas cítricas dan muy buen sabor pero las notas a levadura son demasiado intensas.

Aroma of fruity esters, yeast, citrus, spices, ripe fruits, malt, hint of grapefruit, floral notes, orange peel, hoppy notes. Flavour is sweet and a bit tart with a moderate bittersweet finish. Wonderfully complex. Belgian Triple ish but also has Saison characteristics. Any way, I loved this beer.
