3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 4 years past drink by date. Honey malt nose, some oxidation, peaches, esters, sweet orange, creamy. Lots of hoeny in the flavor, mead-like really. Light tangy barnyard flavors as well. Interesting and nice but not as good as the other two.

75 cl bottle @ Poatersgat, Bruges. Rated on 17.07.2010

Remarkable flavor, characteristic of a long maturation. Bitterness in aroma and flavor which is elongated by hops.

Pretty clear yellow blond beer, some small sediment floating around under an aery off-white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: bit sugary, floral, some citrus, little grassy. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very spicy, gingerbread, cloves, (peperkoek, but that’s a Dutch/Belgian thing), some citrus, cloves again, somewhat sugary, bitter hops, chocolaty touch. Aftertaste: bitter hops, quite an alcohol burn, pretty spicy, some citrus again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared (2005 vintage). Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, funky sour, and damp. Flavour is medium sweet, bitter and sour. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Far from the best Malheur I’ve tried but maybe just past it’s best.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium airy white head, disappears slowly, on top of a light cloudy yellow orange colored beer.
Smell old wood, yeast, green apple, pee, some malts, wild yeast, earth, some hints of friut like dried apricot and mango.
Taste green apples, yeast, wood, old wet wood, yeasty wood particles, some hops and light sharper hops but get taken right away by the woody character.
Aftertaste of grass, yeast, fresh cut/mown green grass, some hops, light hint of wood and floral.
Medium carbo, soft light creamy mouthfeel, full body and a light creamy texture.
Very nice beer! Well balanced and a lot of tasty wood.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.75 l, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20120515) The beer poured hazy yellow. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, wood and honey. Palate was quite light bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, wood, honey and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, a bit boozy and bitter. Thin and boozy but not completely bad. The trippel flavours were nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light yellow with high and persistent head. High carbonation and slightly turbid with yeast on the bottom. Fruity and a little sour mouthfeel, has medium body not expected for a brut. Finishes alcoholic and sweet, with bitter notes after some minutes. Good rare brut and worth its price for a good experience.
