3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep hazy orange with slight amber hues, thick white head, lots of lacing, lots of yeast floaties, despite efforts to minimize with long storage to settle and only 2/3 pour, so I just poured the rest in. Aroma of yeast, bread, very highly spiced, clove, and a decent alcohol smell. Flavor matches well and makes for a nice warming, but refreshing brew. Swirling the glass made for nice carbonation release the entire drink long, released lots of aromas. Quite nice.

2012 bottle. Bit of a gusher upon opening. Almost a murky Amber colour. Nice rich full nose of almost pineapple marmalade. This carries over into the taste. Smooth mouthfeel with full flavour. Some subtle spices I can’t quite place. Well balanced. . I really like this. One of my favourite "golden"Belgian ales

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle of the 2012 donated to me from Harrisoni following our trip to Belgium. Murky orange to chestnut brown in the glass, slight off white big head which thins. Nose is musty, caramel, orange citrous, earthy, barley sugar boiled sweets,. Slight oxidised damp earthiness. Taste is blend of alcohol, orange citrous, caramel, orange marmalade, barley sugar sweets, pine and slight bitter hop, bit of oxidised dampness. Feels like it’s lost a bit of oomph but still decent.

It poured opaque honey colored with a huge head. The aroma was very bready. The flavor was slightly sweet but finished with a tangy, sweet finish, that was slightly mouthwatering.
