3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6.2% bottle. Thick white head on amber cloudy, sweet smelling beer. Some sweetness in the taste - sugary sweetness rather than fruity. Heavy in its character and containing yeast it is bready and it is in some ways like a wheat beer reminding me of Paulaner. Lovely beer

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOD 2/7/13, BBD 2/7/18. Pours a clear medium amber (copper) with just a hint of garnet. World Class head volume, lacing and retention - the best I have ever seen. The final pour provides a mild cloudiness.
Complex nose of sweet fruit (grape, pineapple) coupled with tart lemon. Underneath there are notes of Belgian yeast, a slight spice, subtle sweetness and a bit of slightly sour earthiness (funk).
Medium body with a creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish.
Unfortunately, the flavor profile isn’t as impressive as the appearance or the aroma. It is intense, lacks complexity, and is poorly balanced. From the onset, phenols dominate and little else comes forward. In the middle, a bit of biscuit sweetness is underneath, but you really have to "look" for it. The finish is dry.

20/01/2015 33cl bottle @ Vert de Gris, Brussels.
Nice orange amber with perfect foamy white head. Aroma : Hops, spcies,yeast. Taste : hops & spices, yeast, some sourness, some candy sugar and nice long lasting bitterness in the end. Damn, I can taste it again on writting this. Very nice mouthfeel. Even if beers like this are usually not my faivorites and the first taste is sometimes an effort, there’s just one possible rating, as nothing compares to it!

?wietny kwiatowy aromat i posmak, jednocze?nie dobre nagazowanie, wyra?na ale szybko zanikaj?ca goryczka i ten niepowtarzalny smak belgijskich s?odów. Piwo od prawdziwych Trapistów zdecydowanie robi robot?.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber color, topped with a generous white head. Malty aroma, some caramel notes and a bit yeasty. Taste sweet and malty, again a little bit yeasty, later some sourry notes with ok bitterness in the end. Not bad, but that’s not exactly what I like.

Cerveza de color ámbar turbio con una cabeza blanca y espesa.
Aroma a levadura, maltas y lúpulos, picante y un poco dulce.
Sabor a frutas, maltas, con un final un poco amargo y seco.
Muy buena cerveza.

While maybe its not the easiest bear to drink, it has a great smell and flavour. A complex bear for a special relax moment that you truly want to enjoy.

This is about as perfect as a beer can get for me. I love all sorts of beer styles but I keep coming back to the little skittle bottle, time after time.
