3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Augustijn Grand Cru derivative, made for the augustine monks in Ghent since 2012, when I tasted this from a 75 cl bottle at the Horeca Expo of Ghent. Thick, cream white head, misty golden blonde colour. Fruity aroma, spiciness, banana, yeast, orange peel, white candi sugar, hint of champagne. Rounded fruity palate with light spicy hints, sweetish, grainy and pale malts, a bit toasted, yeasty, not without complexity, with an mild herbal hop bitterishness in the finish along with warming alcohol. Enjoyable, like the regular version, or at least better than what I normally expect from Van Steenberge.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gental nose of Belgian yeast, corriander, citrus and suggestions of sugary sweetness. There was also an initial hint of funk, which rapidly dissipated. A hazy, glowing amber pour with a short lived off-white head and moderate lacing. The palate is wrapped in flowers, mild sweetness, Belgian yeast, and spice. Crisp dry finish. Medium body and crisp carbonation. In conclusion, a respectable Grand Cru.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very crisp clean flavor, tastes better than it smells but it is a little bland for such a big beer. Lively carbonation medium body, bright apple tart sweetness with very good balance on the back end. Pretty good and extremely clean for the style.
