3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the first German local RateBeer tasting at Wasaba in Idar-Oberstein. Courtesy of shrubber85 - thanks! A Belgian beer labeled and sold in Germany? Is this one a Radler?? Probably not with that alcohol percentage. It has a bittersweet taste like a barleywine with a touch more hops.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle in Germany. Dark amber color with a huge white foamy head. Powerful malty aroma in which alcohol is noticeable. The taste is sweet before anything, very fruity, subtle tartness, with a sweet like end. I found it robust for sure, but well balanced and not as agressive as others of the type can be. Overall very tasty with a lot of character. My rating may be different with the German version direct from the Abtei in Germany

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned, 330ml at Cafe Bruxelles, Leicester. Amber to brown with white head. This is very whisky like in character, it shows right from the start, there is bitterness within the malts and an oaky woodiness. Much better than it sounds, pretty decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is a good read slash murky brown, okay barley and malts aroma. There’s kind of a sour gueuze/beer cross going on here, rather complex, a unique and fruity high-proof beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange with a big meringue white head and lots of floaties. The aroma is sour Belgian and oak with a hint of dough and alcohol. This is somewhat hard to explain, but the aroma reminds me dead on of that astringent minty smell from Icy Hot. Seriously. The flavor is a bit tinny with candi sugar, a hint of tannins, sweet malt, and Belgian yeast. A sour dryness that reminds of white wine is also present. Super high burning carbonation that just isn’t soft enough to sell it.

Shared this one w/SkyCop32. Pours a nice Medium golden amber color. Minimal fizzy white head, lasted maybe a minute or two. Aromas of light spices, a touch of brown sugar, and something vegetal. Flavor is lightly sweet and hints of spiciness. Touch of citrus.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, caged and corked. There was a loud ’pop’ that so often accompanies the release of a good corked beer, but there wasn’t any unwanted gush from the top. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was white, three fingers high, and reduced slowly, reluctantly. There was some lace left behind on the glass at the end. The aroma reminded me of maple syrup with hints of toffee, soy, and spices. Medium bodied and slightly sweet. Carbonation was moderate to high. I tasted distinct maple syrup, toffee, Belgian spices, and dark fruits.

Bottle. Pours a copper amber body with an off white head. Fruity apple salty malt character plum and caramel with a modest warming. Light oaky character with some light vanilla notes.
