3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opening - good carbonation pop.
Nose upon opening - phenolic, spicyness (yeast derived)
Color -light straw, white head that fades after 30-50 seconds
Taste/Flavor - phenolic, bitterness is more pronounced than most strong ales we have here (yes they are more bitter in Belgium when they are fresh) Spicy, Malty Alchohols are present, but seemingly subdude by the phenols. A little too sharp and astringent in the finish for me. Yeast character remains in the finish. Carbonation is lively and appropriate. Overall Its a nice drinkable beer that I think would pair very well with some Morbier cheese and some ripe pears. It does not seem to be very cohesive (possibly time) with regard to all of the flavors. Not bad, but not what I was expecting. I would buy again though...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
If this beer was still available. I would recommend anyone to go for it. Tasty and pleasant beer.
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Looks good. Pleasant and a fine intensity in the aroma. Nice hoppy and fruity touch. Some alcohol. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness to back it up. Flowery, some yeast, fruity, toffee and some alcohol in the flavor.
