3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good dense & fine yellowish head; hazy ochre-orange beer. Gtrapey/hay/orangelike hops. Not very ’Belgian’ smelling, IMO. Quite bitter, fruity, bitter oranges and grapefruit, bit of quinine. I suspect white candi sugar, but far from obvious. More grapes in the finish, and resin warming up. Very slick, and very dry. Faint alcoholburn. Medium bodied, at least. Quite fruity and good, rather not very Belgian.

Hazy amber with a frothy white, thin lacy head. Smells of sweet malt, yeast, caramel and sweet malt. Medium oily body. Sweet taste of caramel, malt, with a fruit berry finish. The finish is a bit sour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bread, orange peel, molasses, and raisins in the aroma. Bittersweet flavor, with citrus and spice. Lots of fruit bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. A little hoppier than a typical Belgian beer, almost a cross between a tripel and an ESB, but very tasty and very good.
