3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big coarseish head makes a hissing sound. Clear yellow body with
lots of little particle and strong carbonation. Light barnyard
and apple aroma with faint grape and wood notes. Dry-sweet
barnyard and apple taste with grape and spice notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, soft, delicate mouthfeel. Dryish spicy grape aftertaste
with wooden herbal notes and faint soft metal. Nice and highly
drinkable. Very delicate and could perhaps use a bit more
character. Alcohol very well hidden. (0.75l bottle, wine
monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (from the november 2005 RB-tasting at Dixens place - notes have been damaged by flooding of my basement, but this was such an insane tasting for me as I was new to such massive tastings, so I gave up on the detailed notes quite early). Acidic - can’t read anything else...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fast neutraler Geruch, etwas hopfig, minimal malzig. Leicht herb und überraschend mild ist das Bier. Später wird es herber, leider auch alkoholisch. Das leicht hhopfige Aroma bildet den Abschluss eines etwas langweiligen Bieres.
Test vom 4.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,8,8,-,8 - 8,00

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle (Helsinki Beer Festival 2011) - shared by (poirotti) Frank - a thousand thanks Frank!
6+ Light and fruity aroma. Gentle, but still most pleasing.
4 Hazy ornage, very large tight persistent head.
7+ Choc full of light grains, all so soft and subtle.
4 Mellow palate, pleasant carbonation. So smooth, no sharpness. Finish, again, just loads of mellow light grains.
15 I’m not normally a fan of these more champagne-styled beers, but this is done perfectly for the style. One of the mellowest full-flavoured belgian ales I’ve had. Great one.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light lemony aroma. Chalky blonde in color with a strong white head. Sweet, but lighter and lemony. Refreshing, a great summer beer.

bottle@ZBF 2011:lot of champagne yeast/flavour, look, structure (meaning too much carbonation for a beer) but with some sweetness, zesty, dry fruits, honey, wheat & slightly bitter ending, noticeable alcohol in the finish, better than Deus but still not really getting the Champagne beers

[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.
