4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a haze golden color with some floating yeast particles. The aroma is beautifully complex, mainly fruity: banana, citrus, apricot, mellow, apple, and so on. It is also very spicy. Pepper is in there absolutely.
The taste follows the aroma but predominantly spicy. Belgian yeast is felt.
Medium body, and carbonated as belgians.
Overall itís a very well done triple. I felt it delicated but present and with personality. Iíd go for it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
23rd Sep 2013: 33cl bottle in De Bierboom, Brugge.
Poured a golden hazy colour on first pour, the sediment came out with a vengeance as I emptied the remainder into my glass, turning the glass a more orange hue with a few heavy hunks sinking to the base. The white head gave some lacing and hung around for the whole beer.
The taste and nose were both fruity and yeasty, the fruits leaning towards semi-sour citrus, but not quite getting there.
I thought it different and tasty, a nice mix of flavours and overall a pleasant enough beer to sip while talking about beers with friends.

Bottle from ABS. cloudy, glowing golden orange, high, thick head. Very fragrant, peach and orange nose, jammy apricots, creamy, fresh fruit. Creamy, jammy fruit flavor, orange, apricot, grass, some minerals. Nicely juicy. Some biscuits, spicy yeast, lightly funky. Sweet, but somewhat drier finish with peppery hops. Great fruit flavors, just a bit too sweet. Very nice though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Arden Wines. Pours opaque orange with a subsiding whip of foam. Aroma of cough mixture, perfumed hop suggesting pineapple and lemon zest, slight farmyard yeast, plenty of alcohol. Face-off cough mixture front, still condition, more cough mixture, light breadiness, mildly drying flat finish forthright with booze. Promises magic but doesnít deliver.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ Delirium Cave, served @ cellar temperature. The bottle was clearly severely aged but no clear indication as to from which year this might be on the label. The label fell off from the bottle due the fact that age had dissolved the glue & the paper was noticeably discolored from age. Lots of sediment in the bottle as well. The beer itself had evolved far beyond the point where you could even estimate what the original style or flavours might have been. Poured a very murky, opaque reddish amber with lots of yeast in it with a solid but small off-white head. Smell carried a light but not overt lactic sourness, slightly infection-like, moldy, heavy on old yeast, yogurt touch, slightly earthy & very old + very soft fruits. Taste is lactic sweet with some yogurt, heavy on old yeast, lightly moldy & earthly with sticky herbs, light infection, moldy bread, touch fruit, sweet malts in the back & some sweet chocolate. Added chocolate & malts, eventually actually got me into this beer. Carbonation is lightly lively but clearly muted with quite a hazy body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma features melon, brownie, cherry pie, whipped cream, honey, and white grape juice scents. Pours a hazy, lightly cloudy brass with some light-colored suspended particulate. Effervescent: Fast-rising bubbles. Moderate amount of taupe head. Dull, heavy flavor features honey, white grape juice, and cream elements. A bit boozy. Nothing special in the flavor. Dull, bitter aftertaste. Full body. Frothy and fizzy in the palate. Disappointing.
