3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Best before 2004. Pours unclear blond, with a OK sized white head. Smell is madeira, slightly sweet , has a very mild sour-bitter tone to it as well. Taste is sharp, grainy, dusty, in a way. the beer held up magnificently well for its age. Some madeira notes, but not nearly as much oxidation as one would expect. Slightly sweet, very malty. the MF and carbo are as good as you’d expect from a beer thats fresh. Bit of colliding taste at first ( due to the age, i’m sure ) when the bitterness clashes with the sweet, malty, madeira factor. Turns to an aftertaste thats very nice though ! It consists of complex sweetness ( malts and madeira ) with an almost woody undertone. at this age, its a pretty impressive beer !

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a white head and a bunch of bubbles rising up from the bottom. Aroma of strong malt, wheat, alcohol and a good light freshness. Medium to Full-bodied; Spicey flavour of nutmeg and coriander seed shows first with some citrus and the wheatie characteristics behind. Aftertaste shows some good flavours with a sweet complexity at the end. Overall, good if you can find it - I enjoyed this one! I sampled this 25 cL bottle purchased at a small corner shop in Bruxelles, Belgium on 13-March-2008.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottled, BBE 06 11 04) Murky, dark golden with large yeast particles and a thick, largeish head. Smells like wet cardboard and honeyish sugar – spoiled already, it seems (wonder if the BBE year is 04 or 06…). Sourish, cardboardy, acidic, moldy flavor – definitely spoiled. Medium-bodied, slightly foamy and sticky palate. This was the only bottle available at the store – no wonder. A shame, as the brewery is one of my favorites.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful golden/orange with a firm white lasting head. The aroma is dominated by flowery hop notes, hay and freshly baked wheat bread. The bread element leads the way flavourwise as well along with estery notes from the yeast. On the palate the beer is very much alive with a fitting high level of carbonation, a slightly sweet midpalate and a bitter snap to finish off the experience. A very nice effort.
