2012-09-06, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris; 7% ABV, bb 26.03.2013, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy light amber color with compact head. The aroma shows both some good hop and malt. Strong body, with strong flavor of caramel, malt, some toffee; it has a light residual sweetness and a high bitterness level. In the final there is just a bit too much yeast.
Good but not exciting, and not as fresh as on tap.
2011-09-04, draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas, 6.7% ABV, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Hazy amber color; creamy head. It has a very peculiar aroma of saffron risotto, and earthy hops, some manure; very interesting. Medium body, quite good caramel flavor, generous hopping, that doesn’t burn the tongue but brings in some pleasant resiny and fruity feeling. Long final. Very well balanced, peculiar; very pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at ML Fontainas. Deep golden color, big tan ice cam cone head. Subtle citrus aroma paled in comparison to the cigarette smoke that engulfed us. Taste is bitter lemon. Would love to try this again in a smoke free zone!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle (7%), thanks to sebletitje, pours with a hazy copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up some pine hop resin mixing with sweet citrus hard candy. The taste is similar offering up thin ribbons of pine hop resiny notes bleeding into grapefruit and tangerine where it runs from malt sweetened citrus and then back to resiny citrus nuanced pine hops. Pretty nice with a decent load of hops but lacks cohesion and harmony.
