4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from bottle at RBSG Montreal. Luscious opaque gold, full of floaty black bits of yeast, capped by a lasting cumulous cloud that laces a bit as it fades ever so slowly....big farmy-sour nose, overripe sunheated lemons and limes interacting with freshly cut pine boards, hibiscus and perfume, just gorgeous...the mouth feels honey stickiness and perhaps a touch of maple, pepper towards the end and cotton-candy...but strong alcohol is a bit overpowering at the end and keeps this just on the edge of greatness...overall, still, masterful, and probably my best of the fest.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 RBSG 05 Pours a hazy blonde color with a medium white head. Excellent aroma of yeast with fruits and spices. Excellent flavor of yeast, fruits, spices with a slightly alcoholic finish. The body is medium with a very smooth and confortable mouthfeel, the carbonation is forcefull wthout being fizzy and does a good job of carrying the flavor. Excellent beer.

Hazy amber color with the nicest pillowy white head. Really nice carbonation and creamy texture underneath. Aroma is pure Beligan ale with that nice pepper spice you get with Malheur. Apple fruit and just the right amount of sweet - which is just a tad up front. Nice floral hop emerges on the drying, slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

Honey colored and lively with bubbles. Meringue like head - tight with tiny, tightly packed bubbles which has worked it's way down to thick, lacy film covering the top of the beer. The aroma is outstanding - tropical fruit - banana, pineapple with a touch of cotton candy. Carbonation hits the tongue first. Buttery. Fruit and malt give way to spicy, bitter hops. Hop bite latches on the back of your tongue and clings there. Texture is rich, thick and coats my mouth. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden colour with a big white head. Impressive sweet, fruity (oranges), and hoppy aroma. The high ABV is a little too apparant in the flavour that ends in a very long and bitter finish.

A golden beer, with a creamy white head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Taste spicy with a hint of pepper, and a long warm aftertaste of bitternes and spices.

Bottled. Golden colur, not much head. A bit too alcoholic taste if you ask me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Golden beer with a consistent whispy head, the aroma is fermented and bitter, and the flavour is strong, bitter, dry and fermented slightly. Overall a reasonable Belgian effort.
