3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home from Tanakaya. Dark amber red brown colour. Small golden head. Aroma lots of booze, Xmas cake, stewed boozy fruit. Very cakey. Bit of spice cinnamon, slight appley hint from the calvados but mainly full on booze and some malt there too. Taste full on. Full bodied. Warming. Very fruity. Booze hidden to a certain extent. Tastes like a Belgian Xmas beer. Fairly smooth and rounded. End has just a hint of brutishness. Surprisingly drinkable although more than one might be a challenge. End is sweet and a little spicy. Maybe a bit full on, but quite nice.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2012 Wow - calvabomb! Basically just calvados and some spice on the nose. Taste is again enveloped by calvados - some chocolate, bread,, candi sugar. A bit flat, but fizzy?! A bit underdone, perhaps too many yeast strains trying to work together - just doesn’t really gel - lots of different flavours with fairly flat projection.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear somewhat murky amber and bubbly with a huge foamy beige heading after a slight gush from the yeast. The aroma is malty somewhat sweet with the cellar and barrel notes prevalent from a few years of age. The flavor brings aged Belgian yeast notes and some winey notes in the background on a full body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gusher but managed to save most of it. A reddish-brown body is topped by a medium sized tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is initially pineapple juice, later becoming sweet malt, wood, spice and some oxidation and alcohol. Taste is sweet with some light bitter notes. Flavors are sugars, spice, apple cider, faint bitterness around the edges and more papery oxidization. Medium mouthfeel with some strong carbonation. Finishes with lingering apple sweetness.
