Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with thick white head. Aroma is mild and leans towards candy sweet. Mouthfeel has pleasant carbonation. Flavor is medium bodied. Some candy beat sugar flavors, but not overpowering. Mild hop finish cleanses the sweetness away leaving you ready for the next sip.

When itís poured on the glass a cloudy golden beer itís seen. It also has an augmented amount of carbonic gas and create a huge foam head, but it dissipate very quickly, leaving just a small condensation. The aroma is very floral, and the malt isnít fell. The taste reveals a strong flavor with a full body, and a bitter end, demonstrating the increased presence of hops from the begin to the end. Quite good, but not the best of the Belgium strong ales.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In a ceramic, swing-top bottle labeled as "Yeast Hoist" -- deep, rich golden with a frothy head and heavily sedimented, this screams goodness, visually. The aroma is similarly seductive ... And ultimately this drinks like all the really good, classic Belgian golden ales. Sharp and tangy, with a hint of wild fermentation, but ultimately evenly sweet and beery ... love it.

Shared a 50cl ceramic bottle form Cora (Luxembourg). Nice clear golden colour with a large white head. Light aroma of yeast, citrus and fruits. Medium carbonation and light to medium body. Flavour is light bitter with a more sweet end. Overall, not bad but nothing special... Except the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Apple, yeast, orange, grains and bread. Clear gold with a thick white head. Honey, apple, grains and light orange. I get a very mild bitterness in the finish, but the sweetness overpowers. The thick mouth feel makes this a slow going beer. I think this would pair well with a desert or fruit, much in the way of an Ice Wine.
As this warms, it is starting to taste more like a light quad. Fruits stand out more, and although apple still prevails it is still pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden colored body with high foamy head.. Hops dominate the aroma and flavor, astringent finish. Aroma is hops, pine, floral. Taste is more of the same capped with some light alcohol burn. Decent effort on this one.

Beautiful bottle. Usually that is meant to mask a bad beer, but this is not bad at all. Golden orangle color with a white head. Citrus or orange peel aromas with yeast and spice. Flavors add caramel and hops.
