Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. Served side by side with Malheur Brut Noir (Black Chocolate). The beer is hazy and straw yellow hued with a half inch of lasting white head. The aroma brings yeast, lemons, bready malts, grass. Smells good. Nice flavor as well. Easy drinking, especially considering the 12% abv. Bold yeast flavors with a touch of hops. Additional notes of citrus and a light, bready sweetness. The finish is dry, with warming alcohol notes. Overall, this a tasty beer. I would have it again.

ReV2 (147) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
A 10 year old bottle, best before October 2004 showing as 11% on the box. Darker and less carbonated than I remember, a sign of ageing - the beer that is. Mead sweetness and fruity, pear and peaches. Subtle hops, like a Duvel on steroids, quite thick. In good condition but better tasted young.

Golden clear colour with a solid frothy white head. On the nose develop aromas citrus, pears and alcohol. Softly fizzy, chewy bit oily and slick texture. Light sweet with some bitterness but well balanced, Full bodied with a dry finish. Nice one!

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Just to show how beer tastes differ, I think this is average, but had a friend who thinks this beer is awesome. Hopefully our ratings will balance. A slightly brown and well carbonated beer with lots of dark fruit and spice and that belgian twang. Good - just not my style.

Can’t remember who brought this one, but thank you. Well I figured this was more of a champagne beer then anything, which was pretty spot on. Now I’m sure that a lot of people like this style but it didn’t really tickle my fancy. Too carbonated to properly enjoy, for me anyway, I know it’s suppose to be pretty well carbonated.
