3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle. Pours hazy yellow, big white head. Malty overall, quite sweet and yeasty. Not bad persé but not refreshing in any way either.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
