3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle. This is a soft blurry straw-yellow one with a nice big fluffy just off-white big foamy top. It smells light Belgian with a nice candy sweetness and Belgian yeast. Actually a bit "Champagne-ish" in a way also. The taste is also classic Belgian blonde. It’s lively on the carbonation and it has a oily mouthfeel. Some warming alcohol, Belgian yeast, dried flowers and hops with traces of candy and straws. As classic Belgian as they get in my opinion. Nice warming aftertaste. Pretty much like drinking a Duvel lookalike. Tasty! 22.10.2012

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle kindly shared by Sigmund. ABV is 9,5%. Hazy hay golden body with a three fingers thick fluffy off-white head leaving fair lacing. Wooden cupboard, sugar and whiffs of spicy Belgian ale yeast and glandular notes on the nose. Heavy sweet, dry, alco warm, spicy, bitter mouth. Overcarbonated and full bodied. Still it feels thin in the mouth

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle into signature chalice, best before 11/21/2013. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to small cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, apple, pear, pepper, clove, light bread, grass, floral earthiness, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, pepper, clove, bread, honey, grass, candi sugar, floral, earth, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, clove, pepper, bread, floral, grass, honey, earth, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly slick, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong pale ale. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
