Appearance is pale yellow, tinge or orange, white head. The aroma is peppery, spicy, grassy, fruity. The flavor is thew same as the aroma, leading with pepper and spice, and grassy. Like a pilsner fermented with belgian yeast. The finish is spicy, pepper. medium in body, substanial carbonation. Not terrible, not great. Again, like a pilsner fermented with Blegian yeast.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sehr süßlichlicher medizinaler Duft.
Fruchtiger Antrunk. Im weiteren Verlauf ist in der kräuterigen-medizinalen Mitte etwas Herbe mit dabei. Beinahe scharf. Diese Schärfe macht sich vor allem im Abgang bemerkbar, der dann kratzig wirkt.
Ein wenig unrundes Gebräu.Test vom 16.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

I got this in the limited edition YEAST HOIST ceramic bottle. It was good if a little more citrusy than I’d expect. Good beer but I wonder how much of the $11 price is tied into the fancy packaging. Hey, it worked to get my attention and buy it so I guess you can’t argue with that.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, as Grand Cru. Gold with a fluffy white head that collapses to an inch. Aroma of oranges, mandarins, dough, cloves. Taste is sweet with oranges and peaches followed by balancing spicy/ herbal bitterness. Some cloves, vanilla, white pepper. Mildly bitter spice finish with some alcohol. No great depth but bitterness keeps the sweet malts in check without obscuring them.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden clear body…..why is this clear? Complete with a large white fluffy cap. Aroma has mild funk, wheat, sweet lemon, sort of ginger ale but not really, finishes with some apple. Taste is nice and full, good yeast. More funk starting to appear in the nose now. Brew has a touch of soap in the finish. The ginger ale I thought I smelt is really starting show up in the taste and I love it when these Belgium beers have that taste. Kind of sourish. Beer just keeps getting better the more it warms the malts really shows up now with a vanilla and lemon taste. I gave the bottle a good swirl before my second pour and this only made the beer mildly hazy looking. Good beer glad I had it……but is it worth the price?
