3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.5oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Pours a clear golden color with a huge carbonated head that leaves sticky lacing all over the glass. Aroma is Belgian yeast, sugar and a hint of spice. Taste comes across the same. Carbonation gives it a clean finish at the end.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Popular Belgian barley wine with amber colour and a yeasty and fruity character, some honeyish malt sweetness, spicy yeastiness, grassy hops and warming, ’jenever’-like alcohol in the finish, badly hidden. Okay but typically Van Steenberge, lacking the elegance I expect from this style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow color, with extremely huge white head. Medium to heavy sweetness. Aroma is pretty much nothing but alcohol. Some malt and yeast, and just a little bit spicy. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Too sugary and too boozy, blah.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tastes a bit like Gulden Draak: less sweet and caramel-like, but more herbs and ’beer’.
