(Bottle) Mondial de la Bičre 2004. I’ve been looking forward to having this beer for a while - luckily I didn’t need to trade for it. Pours a thin, white head with a cloudy orange body. Beautiful lacing on the glass. Nose of slight rubbing alcohol, vanilla, orange and spice. Smooth yet tart.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 Pours with a beautiful red grapefruit flesh color. A little carbonation sticks to the side of the glass. After the initial visual impression, I had high hopes. However, I was dissapointed. This smells of ginger, peaches and grapefruit. The taste is tart with grapefruit at first. Then, bread and spicy nutmeg balance this out. A decent beer for the style.

Tap@North coast. Has the same yeasty flavour of Duvel (i.e fair amount of character, but nice and soft. This was spicy, appley, lemony, yeasty, nice warming finish, not too bad.

Pours out a cloudy orange with a medium head. Very fruity and yeasty aroma. The flavor is not as in-your-face as many Belgians are. Still, yeasts and spices are the prevaling flavors. Very nice, but nothing to drive cross-country for.

Pours cloudy, deep orange with decent sized head. Aroma of belgian yeast, perfume, and a little fruity. Has a hint of sweet butter in the flavor. Has fairly typical belgian flavors. Apples, bananas, spices and yeast. This seems to be a mild version of a belgian. Not bad, but I have had better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light golden amber with a large lasting frothy off white head. Musty, spicy aroma of clove, cinnamon, coriander, ginger, honey and light bread. Medium light watery body with soft carbonation. Flavor of clove, cinnamon, ginger, honey, ripe cheese, allspice and light bread. Good but not great, forgettable.
