Little disappointing. Not a bad Belgian but nothing special. Slightly fruit and Spicey. Some lemon. Yeast, bread. Ok

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Trübe im Glas mit unnatürlich viel Schaum, der aber schnell den Rückzug antritt. Aroma? Nee, nicht wirklich. Im Antrunk Malz und dann wird es deutlich alkoholisch-herb...Die 8,5% Alk. sind mehr als deutlich herauszuschmecken. Wirkt geradez sprittig; hätte ich beim Blind-Tasting für ein russisches Wodka-Pivo gehalten. Nee, das ist nichts für mich, eher was für Starkbierfans mit Hang zum Synthetischen.

Rating the 2012 batch from Het Snker. Pours with a towering head, and nice golden color (tulip glass). Closely resembles a Duvel in taste and body. Sought this one out and was rewarded with a nice drink!

Bottle. Light gold with thick white head. Spicy head. Hazy. Long lasting head. Heavily carbed. Has some potential. Not an everyday beer but glad I tried it.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From BA: Brown squatty 33cl bottle, best before 06/2010, drank on 26th Oct 2007. My bottle says it is brewed by a Liefmans Brewery.
Poured into a Leffe glass it came out a golden clear yellow and a large white head sat on tap, sadly the head shrank away very swiftly.
I got carbolic soap mixed in with the yeast when I put my nose to it, not a good aroma to me.
Full on alcohol taste and more lagerish than a normal Belgian Ale.
The aftertaste was thin although the alcohol does linger.
A little disappointed with this beer, I was expecting more flavour and more umph.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Reviewed from notes (2007).
Crisp golden color with a fading frothy head. Nose is citrus sweetness with a hint of spice. A dry floral/fruity flavor is pervasive throughout, the spice aroma makes itself known in taste toward the end. Crisp finish, soft and smooth body. Easy to consume.

Pour hazy yellow color with a thick growing head. Flavor is sweet and fruity, with vanilla and apple tones. Not as intense as expected.

So I have here a long defunct product which was the last bottle at Marty’s in Newton. Didn’t realize at the time but the fine print on the cap says October 2008. No matter this type of beer doesn’t necessarily skunk...it only becomes more evil. Looks like a Leffe or Affligem, only more gold than blond. Aroma by now is some fruit and a whole lot of booze, sort of like a a white wine, only yeastier. Starts bitter and spicy and ends with a cream soda flush. Stings the palate and sticks around for a few seconds after. Very unique. Now I feel like I’ve destroyed a historic artifact. Hopefully my review will not be the last and someone has a large cellar.
