4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very complex beer and on the more expensive side but well worth it. A beer that I could drink again and again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7,6% alc. 50 cl bottle bought at Alcampo, served in La Trappe chalice. Pours copperish amber with huge ivory head. Aroma is orange, iron filings, cookie dough, white flowers. Round, full-bodied, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Long lasting. Not bad, although it seems too expensive to me (6,30€ per half litre). I agree that it comes with a nice bottle one might keep for water, though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
St. Denise Grand Cru, 7,6% ABV, 50 cl.
Dorata lievemente velata, schiuma bianca appiccicosa e di buona persistenza.
Aroma di coriandolo, miele, chiodi di garofano e frumento.
Al palato prevalgono il coriandolo ed il miele, in secondo piano chiodi di garofano, scorza di limone e frumento, leggera polpa d’arancia, finale etilico con coda erbacea secca che può ricordale la segale.
Corpo medio, ben carbonata.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (750ml). Poured sparkling golden orange with a large frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of floral hops with lemon zest, pears, apple pie, cinnamon, coriander and some straw. Flavor was of sweet bready malts with a very light bitterness, lemons, dried apricots, candy sugar, cinnamon, cloves and light notes of coriander. Very well masked alcohol content. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a decent length finish. Far to sweet for my liking – not nearly bitter or spicy enough to balance itself out IMO.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Everything to be expected from the type of ale, but not enough complexity to merit special mention. Yeasty with a little orange peel hint, but the sweetness is the dominant reaction. Not quite as bad as a Kronenbourg Blanc, but should have been better.

Looked flat from the start and it was. No carbonation and just to smooth. I guess the fanncy ceramic bottle does not work.
