4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful pungent aroma, yeasty, hazy straw color with silky white head. Bitterness comes through on first taste, lingering on palate and in throat. Smooth, with a spike of alcohol warmth. Complex, yet tasty.....

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Two years old. Pours a murky yellow colour with a frothy grey-white medium head. The aroma is pretty fruity and sour with belgian yeast, gooseberries, apple cider vinegar and some cinnamon, and feels vinous. The flavour is wonderfully complex and rich with a touch of fruity apples, pale malt and belgian yeast. It still has a nice sourness and a sweet ending. Rich and soft mouthfeel, and a light to medium bitterness. A really nice and rich ale. It’s well-balanced, and a mix between a sour ale and strong light belgian ale.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
