daffodil pastel yellow. a magnificent head packed tight like the cotton stuffing in an aspirin bottle. spicy nose with lots of yeast, tho not garishly citrusy; musty, cobwebs, like grandpaís closet (he wore old spice), with apple and mosel white wine grapes. great sweet to bitter teeter-totter on the tongue, very nice taste with apple flavors leading. i had only one bottle and i greedily inhaled it , an unseemly lapse of couth bespeaking both my unfettered thirst and the beerís tastiness. nuances may have been missed. in fact, i drank it so gluttonously that there may have even been a dead mouse in there--how would i know? it was good tho, of that iím certain.

strong slivovice aroma which comes through into the taste. dry, whale blubber texture. fruity - lemon and garam masala, some marmalade. lots in there, i just didnít really like the way it came together

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
very powerful flavours for a mere 7 percenter. reminded me a little of trois monts, which is a Good Thing. at first rich and fruity for a split second, then massively dry, coriander-heavy, and with heaps of fat yeast that gets up yer nose. had what i assume was an oldish bottle (useby end this year) which may have smoothed it out.

light clear gold colour with extra plankton. quite perfumey. hoppy, smooth, light and well balanced, apart from the metallic aftertaste. a bit too fizzy, but otherwise ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium gold clear under a fine, creamy, slowly dissipating head. Light yeast, fruit and hops aroma. Medium strength basic Belgian palate and flavours, the usual suspects, some fruit, hops and a bit of yeast . For only 7.5% the ABV is not all that well masked. Overall just an average or maybe even a below average Belgian.

Pale yellow clear with small white short lasting head. A short burst of fragrant floral and raisins, and a lingering fainter malt, spices and rotting fruit mould/yeast aromas. Big bitter and yeasty start but fades a bit quickly. I enjoyed it.

An average strong ale and in fact pretty disapointing.

Sampled bottle was from 1990. Golden orange colour. Syrup, toffee, some honey and chocolate make up the nose. The flavor is big with honey, minerals and a peppery ending.
