3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[3/6/11] Bottle at ZBF 2011. Slightly hazy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, alcohol and fruits. Sweetish flavor with a tiny bit of acidity and a drier, spicy, alcoholic finish. Too much alcohol in the flavor.

Excellent champagne beer that apparently they stopped brewing. I’m very glad to have tried this when I could.

75 cl bottle. + point for appearance. Appearance: Straw golden, white but not dense head, sticky lacing. Nose is discrete, but reminds of white wine. Biscuit and bread aroma. Half sour half bitter taste, but quite neutral. Carbonation is medium to low.

Slightly sour pils-like aroma. Taste is similar to the aroma. Carbonation does not add much to the taste and does not seem to fit well with it.

Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity, citrus, yeasty and spicy. Flavor is medium sweeet. The finish is dry and has notes of alcohol. Very champagne like and bubbly. Too high carbonation. I had beer all over the kitchen table. 221206

Bouteille: Pale golden, white floaties visible, big stable white head; moderate to solid zesty and fruity nose; solid sourish-tart and sweet flavour, medium-bodied, soft; lingering zesty and yeasty finish. Very good, very well drinkable brew....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, pale golden coloured hue with myriads of floaties and a huge and persistent foamy white head. Mildly yeasty and distinctively citrus-fruity (grapefruit) and slightly zesty aroma with a tinge of wheat and hay-like spicy hops. Moderately sweet and delicately bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a surprisingly smooth carbonation. Yeasty, discreetly grainy and wheaty taste with a pronounced and slightly vinous citric fruit-character and a whiff of hoppy spice; sweet and slightly sour-fruity, slightly vinous finish. Ambitious brew. 10.XI.10

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light sweetness, nice doughy, honey malts, could be a bit crisper. Bit of green grapes, bit of herbal hops. Pretty decent, but a bit sloppy compared to other champagne beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml corked bottle. A lightly hazy medium golden beer with a large, frothy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightlyt malty, lightly to moderately hoppy, lightly to moderately yeasty. There are notes of bread, flowers, grass, fruits, mold. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, lively to fizzy carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. It’s less sweet than the the Biere Brut. but it doesn’t have the same complexity. Anyway, pleasant
