3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A reddish beer with a nice caramel nose. The flavour is initially caramel and complex malt, but a slight sour twang enters and it finishes slightly dry and fresh. The palate is the most fantastic thing about this beer. Light and fresh while to counter the caramel. Nice!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (in NZ Belgian beer cafe), pours a cloudy orange/copper with a filmy head. A caramalised fruit aroma with whiffs of bubblegum ice cream. A strong tart fruit flavour, with ground spice, zest and some pepper. I find the palate a little earthy. Just of average quality for a Belgian ale, but does get a couple of bonus points for the vessel (cheesy, but quirky).

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com)
As I recall, this is a nice strong ale. Malty and drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy deep amber with a rather big beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, yeast, fruits, toasted notes, light spiciness and hints of hops. Sweet malty flavor with some caramel, fruits, some spicy yeast and some metal towards the finish. Medium-bodied with a pretty strong carbonation. Quite pleasant.

Pour golden red with a large white head that dwindles to a nice small head. Strong aroma of hops. Palate could be better and the taste is good but very alcoholy... NICE BUZZ. Would drink again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle cellared for about a year or so.....pours a semi-opaque reddish brown with a thin soapy white head....aroma of sweet malt very bready and biscuits..... flavors of malt and a sweet caramel and toffee character that is quite nice and not to mention some peppery spice. carbonation is definetely apparent and the residual sweetness lingers on for awhile. mouthfeel was somewhat thin i thought and could have used a little more body.

Draft – Victoria Gastro Pub – Hazed gold, creamy white head. Softly spiced vanilla honey aromas warm to toffee and waxy citrus tones. Sweet cotton candy and spiced caramel flavors balance on hints of yeasty apple and citrus. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet finish. It made for a good late night sipper…
