[Bottle @ YardHouse] Clouded golden appearance, good head formation. Plenty of yeast and coriander spice in the aroma. Banana yeast, malty palate, fruity, alcohol noticeable a little excessively sugarry. Drank this as a third beer and found it to be a little too sweet, a little cloying. Might have tasted better as a first on a warmer day.

Clear golden pour with moderate carbonation. Big head that leaves a little lacing. Dry clean finish. Decent and totally drinkable.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle at Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, shared with Finn. Patchy surface to a golden body. Sweet fruity aroma, slightly spicy. Spiced fruity taste, along with berries. Warming alcohol. Ok with the food (Brugge, 04.05.2011).

Good in every single feature. I do not know why they changed the phormula but it has nice aroma and ffoam. A little simple after some zips.

Bottle. Not sure of the vintage, but I’d assume that it is a 2009+. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a cream white head. Good retention. Aromas of coriander, clove, phenols and esters. Alcohol, candi sugar, and light plastic. Minimal malt notes. Flavors are dry and alcoholic with esters, pepper, clove, candi sugar and orange peel. Lively bubbles, dry and creamy. Warming.

15/05/2011 75cl bottle @ Brouwerij Het Anker - BB: 21/4/2014 (2011-207)

Very little cloudy blonde beer, white aery head, dissipates fast, non adhesive. Aroma: fruity, candi sugar. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, little fruity, bit of sugar. Hops are present but only very faintly. Aftertaste: more fruitiness, citrus, a bit chemical even, some malts and again very faint hop presence. If you want to play in the Duvel league, you need more hops, I think. But maybe keeping the EBU low, was one of the conditions when they bought the brand from Moortgat?

Gold pour with an aroma of bread, spice and mild hop. The taste is similar with a splash of banana and other fruits. Not bad.

Blairgus (4122) - California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
2 May 2011, bottle. very very pale yellow, clear, steady bubbles, frothy white head. has a big alcohol and yeasty nose. some coriander as well. thin/med body and moderately fizzy. lots of alcohol. this one is definitely 8%. rather disappointing overall. not much of the sweet aspect of most belgian strong ales. a very dry white wine taste.
