3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Although this isnít really my style, this beer was quite impressive nonetheless. The Belgian yeast and the malty sweetness mixes perfectly with the hints of white wine. Minimal head. The aroma is very floral. Flavor is a little sour (like a saison), tangy, and sweet. The malts and hops are hard to describe because they arenít really present... it feels more like youíre drinking white wine. Itís very drinkable and light-bodied, which allows the high ABV to sneak up on you. A unique experience.

Pours almost clear golden with very little foam N: grapey. Sweet grapes. This is like sauternes if it wasnít for the light spicy yeast character T: the taste is wonderfully winey and sweet. GewŁrstraminer or something. Only getting lightly drying in the aftertaste. Funny stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this sometime at the end of 2012, as part of a 03.03.03 - 12.12.12 tasting. I had meant to enter these a while ago while they were fresh and add a few extra details, but that didnít happen. Review from notes. Anyway, here we go.
3.5 A: Mildly hazed light orange color. Short head falls quickly.
4.0 S: Nice nose on this. Herbal camomille backbone. Vinous white grapiness. Super peppery. Smells like a more than solid saison.
3.5 T: Like the nose, but less depth. Still quite nice though. Lots of pepper with plenty of overall spiciness. White vinous grape, oak, and vanilla. Maybe a touch of banana.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good spritzy carbonation.
3.5 D: Not bad.

Bottle. It poured a cloudy copper color with a tan head. The aroma was fruity and malty. The taste was of biscuit, grass, grape, spice and a hint of bubblegum. Tasty.

650ml bottle acquired from jsquire and cellared the past few years, then shared by all during the family Christmas with the 08/09/10/11/12 as a vertical tasting. Unclear reddish orange pour. Similar to mulled wine, with the sweet fruitiness. No spicy yeast presence. Smooth going down. Better than all but the 09. 13.6

Sampled at Chrisís bachelor party. Golden brown pour with a somewhat sour smell yet sweet flavor. Tasted as if it was it had been barrel aged. Had a slightly syrupy mouth feel.

22 oz bottle pour split at Brouwers. Pours a light golden apple juice color with very little head. Sharp fruit, booze and spice aroma. Flavor is dry. Applesauce like with a little spice and sweetness. A bit of a high carb burn to it, though itís not boozy at all. Suprised at the level of carb. Overall flavorful and different. Glad I tried this.
