probstblueribbon (3348) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2009
<i>500 ml bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB 07 07 09. DE09/08.</i>

<b>App.</b>: Clear, fairly deep golden, fair white froth. <b>Aroma</b>: Grain, cereal, apples, fruitiness, sweet, almost like a Belgian ale, with some light floral honey and sort of lemony notes, slightly earthy, light caramel. <b>Palate</b>: Medium-ish body and large, soft, sparse bubbles of carbonation. <b>Flav.</b>: Yeasty and earthy-lemony, quite like a Belgian ale again, some leafy earthy hops and light nuttiness, less fruity than the nose; lightly off-dry with some bitterness.

Quite enjoyable, really. I was pleasantly surprised.

[1320-20080425] 500mL bottle. Light refreshing fruit aroma with a bit of sweaty bread. Clear, yellow brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bland light fruity yeast flavour is a little boozy. Light-medium body is bubbly. Refreshing but bland.
