3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had this at Le Bier Circus on 5-13-03. Nice golden blonde. Strong alcohol aroma along with malt. Taste expands on that with a stronger malt, alcohol, and slightly whisky-ish presence. Maybe peach as well. Supposedly this has gin added to it at some point and there is that dryness from gin in this beer, especially during the finish. Has a nice whitish head and decent carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Cloudy light amber coloured beer. Slightly sweet and a tiny bit sour aroma. A friend of mine said she could smell the 'jenever' which destillate is supposed to be added to the beer. I could not really say I did but it had an interesting aroma. The taste was refreshing, a bit sweet, slightly sour and a bit thick. The alcohol is obvious but not disturbing. It is a good beer.

Dull muddy apple pie with cloves. Left over alcohol. I’m sure the puss faced brewer’s boy did more than spit in this concotion. Maybe P-tor44 spat this out after drinking his Stag.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is
hazy medium yellow, dense tiny and small particles, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs, earth), moderately malty (cookie),
lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of alcohol, pear, honey, and
clove. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to
full body, creamy and syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately
alcoholic. It’s quite sweet, and the alcohol is a bit too striking, but
it’s actually quite pleasant for such a strong beer. Improves as it

Deep golden colour, creamy head. The bottle contains a fair bit of yeast sediment. Fruity, peppery aroma. Very sweet and malty. Tastes of dried fruit and has a hint of cask character.
