4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of tangerines, peaches, pink grapefruit, cherries, flowers, and golden raisins. Clear, orange-honey complexion, with small, constant bubbles, and a small, fully lasting, white head. Some sweetness, fruity, floral, swallowed up by a yeasty dryness. Medium body, prickly carbonation, spicy, and finishes full of white wine notes.

This was a very good beer I opened it March 21 2013, after sitting in a dark cupboard for 2 and a half years .... one word....WOW
The aroma was so surreal, grapes in your face, but the taste was not overly sweet. I am so glad i hid two bottles from myself bake in October of 2010.

This beer was aged for three years and wow Iíve never had the fresh version but I canít imagine itís better than this. The aroma is nice clean grape smell. Taste like a brett beer, good blend of sour and Belgian flavor. Very good brew, if you can get your hands on one I do recommend.

Bottle. I guess it must be close to three years old now. Golden, effervescent. Sour apple aromas and flavors. Belgian esters are present, but not overpowering. Solid beer overall.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. Found aged during a closeout sale. The pour is amber in color with a thin head but a lot of busy carbonation. The aroma has many of the essential Belgian esters one might expect from a Dubbel or Tripel rather than a Strong ale with roasted malts, yeast, candied sugar, and toffee. The body is about medium but it also very smooth. The taste is nice and roasted and there is a low bitterness at the end. Aging has mellowed this one in a good way for sure.
