4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice hazy orange with fair sediment and loads of white head. The aroma is surprisingly dry, with hints of citrus fruit, apples, pears, and a touch of spice. The flavors are wonderful. Dry, almost sour, fruity, yeasty, spicy. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and finish is rather warming. A pleasant surprise in this one. That it is brewed by Dupont, makes the sour/dry aspects more understandable.

Citrus nose, and some yeast aroma. Hazy pear colour, with a large white head. Mellow honey taste, with some candied fruit and good bread. Fine mouthfeel, subdued tongue tingle, a nice little Belgian.

This beer makes me very excited. Among the most complex beers I’ve had. Sourness, acid yeastiness, rounded fruity fluffiness, caramel, and alcohol. After a while I even noticed almond roca flavours in it. Incredible. RER8: ok ok not as stunning as 1st time but still a good un. very nougatish and light and lemony. beautiful yeasty grassy aroma.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 peaches,apricots, beautiful amber color. Complex flavours yeasty, lemony, creamy.
label was also different, had the farmhouse. Finish has a , bite to it. Recommended.-Second try,removed date of the bottle, shame on the retailer if they did that if it were past date. Again hazy, cloudy, apricots and bananas,superb lacing. Mildy bitter and very refreshing,TAR said it right it is dry as well as creamy, rating stays the same.
