(500ml bottle) Sampled as the Grand Cru version at Smokeless Joe's in Toronto. Pours a medium, white head and a orange-copper body. Nose of vanilla, malt and slight whiskey. The 7.6% abv doesn't show through in the taste. Very Good!

bottle gifted from a client...lot A most likely BB 2003...this one has been perfectly cellared next to some wine for five years!!! viscous pour... a rich pumpkin pie color with a fluffy off white head.it disappears quickly to leave a lot of black yeast floaters. aromas of peach, cask wood, dry apricots, copper malts, caramel and a little alcohol. flavor is mildly yeasty with caramel, floral honey, orange and dried herbs?. a little bit of a let down judging by the aroma but....medium bodied with enough carbonation. leaves a dry finish you want to go back to. i’ve never had this fresh so i’ll rerate...

From a 500 ml ceramic bottle that was given to me. I was told it was about six years old. I poured it carefully into two glasses but even then it was very cloudy with lots of swirling yeast. Nose of fruits such as apricots and caramel, a rich mouthfeel, and full flavors of flowers, fruits, makes this very enjoyable. Slightly sour finish.

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.

500 ml crock. Pours gold with a large head and nice lacing. Yeasty aroma with lemons and spice. Flavors of lemons, white pepper, coriander, bananas and bubblegum. Not too strong. Refreshing. Cool bottle.

tomer (1647) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle as "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru", long lasting creamy head with some lacing, hazy golden colour with some orange streaks, earthy yeasty aroma with rose petals, some white fruits and candy in the back, flavour of rose petals, orange blossom and citrus, finely balanced and not too heavy with lively carbonation, light bitterness and a long sourish afteraste. A very nice brew that’s quite easy to drink.

superspak (2477) - Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2013
16 ounce bottle into chalice, best before 4/9/2014. Pours hazy and cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pear, apple, grape, bread, candi sugar, honey, clove, earth, pepper, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of apple, pear, grape, apricot, bread, pepper, clove, earth, honey, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, bread, pepper, clove, honey, candi sugar, earth, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity; with a nice malt/spiciness balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian tripel style. Very nice complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2014
500ml ceramic bottle into a Trappist glass; served cold. Aroma: Light raisins, fresh yeast, bready, boozy. Appearance: Moderately hazy, gold body. Creamy, white, head that slowly dissipates to a thin cap. Taste: A little malty, dried fruits like apricot and raisin. Some light caramel too. Alcohol is present but not overpowering. Palate: Very high amount of prickly carbonation. Medium body, medium+ finish that ends on light bitterness. Overall: A really nice golden. Has lots of flavors that remind me of some triples, but isn’t overly sweet or boozy. Great stuff!

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2014
500 ml stoneware bottle, as Sterkens St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru Bière Forte, capped and with swingtop. ABV is 7.5%. Bought at Alcampo, Gran Canaria. In the German translation on the label the beer is classified as a "doppelbock", which it clearly is not, despite being brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot. Pale golden colour, large and lasting white head. Nice and "typical Belgian" spicy aroma, also some fruity notes. Fairly light bodied for its strength , nice and mild spicy flavour, again "typically Belgian", not too sweet.
