1700th rating on this website won’t be a big want... This one I had for personal reasons. Very decent brew, but I do like most of Van Steenberge brews. Nothing exceptionnal, but mostly decent to good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle from Surdyk’s. Cellar release 11-2012. Consumed during Match Madness with commonshawn. Champagne like appearance with significant effervescence. Golden with a half finger of head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and slight sweetness. Minimal. Mouthfeel is bubbly and tangy. Taste has citrus, spice notes, and alcohol elements...maybe a little metallic. Belgian yeast once again. Reminds me of a tripel but a thinner body. A nice overall drinking experience.

This kind of is the Augustijn Grand Cru, but in a different bottle for the American market. Dense foam, amber colour, nice and smooth drink. But nothing spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cellar release date of 10/2012, 2 years old. Pours very slightly hazy golden color, with a 1-finger off-white head. Moderate bubbling along the wall of the glass. Crisp, fruity aroma, with a light yeasty note. Body is medium-to-full, and just a touch syrupy. Crisp, with a dry finish. Earthy yeast flavor lies beneath a crisp, fruity flavor that was reminiscent of apple.
