3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foxy red-orange beer, very well-carbonated to huge yellow head. Overpowering nose with a mix of citrus (orange, and indeed, tangerine, peel) and alcohol - ethanol ànd fusels. Taste of pure alcohol - again ethanol + fusels. Duvel ³ -with citrus and zeste. Base is quite sweet, but the B.A. has worked well. Very carbonated - certainly for a B.A. beer - well-bodied, slick, alcoholheat. Way too sharp-alcoholic to my liking. Duvellovers might adore this one.

Hazy golden with a white head - sweet caramel and vanilla aroma - sweet vanilla and wood flavour - wood and vanilla continues into the finish - a little to much on the sweet vanilla taste for me, but it is still good

Bottom of barrel yeasty leftovers but damn it’s still good. Barrel, booze, oak and some florals under all this madness. Pours murky blond with lots of head and lacing but this is a little jaded because it’s the end of the barrel. On tap at Ebenezer Kezar’s.

Ambrée trouble, pas de pétillance ni la moindre mousse. Bien maltée caramel, épicée coriandre, fruitée quetsch, on goûte un peu les barils...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A orange brown beer with a big, dense, blond and slightly cloudy head. The nose is enjoyable and fruitfull, intensive, nice sweetness, spices, some strawberries nad hint of green apples. Taste is fruitfull or interestingly almolst a dark fruity, prune, spices and some strenght of alcohol. Hint of dry barrel and herbs in the end. Medium+ bodied, quite high carbonation lightening the drinkability. Quite simple, but balance is just great and so this is the quite enjoyable beer.
