3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Ommegang stem... OCCASION: celebrating the unseasonably warm afternoon of football, Christmas lights and fun with my sons... APPEARANCE: opaque, deep golden amber body with a soft, foamy thin white head that rings uniformly; lacing is cirrus cloud and ocean crest... AROMA: aromatic, fruity--sour apple and tart candy... PALATE: light, fizzy as cider; possesses some staying power in the mouth, but rather dry like champagne...TASTE: mildly tart and pleasantly crisp with little exchange of flavor in the exhale; an underlying hint of lager malts, but inevitably this is a clean basket of fruit with enough hops to hint at an ale...OVERALL: This has to be one of those handful of brews I have passed numerous times, always intending to try and never quite trying; its inclusion in the "Great Beers of Belgium" forced my hand, and I am pleased to find it a serviceable, light, cheaper version of Unibroue’s wonderful Ephemere (which announces its apple right up front); a single notch below the Estaminet pilsner in the sample, and two below the Rodenbach--but beer drinking isn’t really a competition, right?...

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured out of the bottle a dark clear amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose has beery, laager type aromas. Clean and frankly non-deScript.
Mouthfeel is aggressively carbonated. There are clean wheat dough, water biscuit, raw peanut flavors. No hop character at all. There is a mineral roundness to the palate which is remiscent of a sparkling mineral water like Perrier or sparkling San Pelligrino.
There is something to be said for doing one thing well and doing it the same way for centuries.
The finish is a well balanced, brief and beery.
A perfect food-pairing beer. Curry, roast meats, fish.
Goes on Favorites List!

Bright golden to amber colour, white head with good lacing.Florall aroma, slightly belgian yeast in the nose. Good carbonation but not a great flavor and unpleasent mouthfeel. Even with volume of just 2,5dcl had a problem to finish a beer.

Amber/brown in colour, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel, bread and brown sugar. Tastes light sweet and light bitter. Light body and thin texture. Watery overall, even a bit stale. Not that special.
