3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium copper colour, with a light white head.
Aromas are apples, red fruit peels, bit of bread, bit of brewed coffee.
Crisp palate, with a medium to light mouthfeel.
More fruity tastes. And some spicey nuttiness.
Overall, this is a good solid brew, but I was expecting more (haven’t had it in years and I was drunk with a dead nose and palate that time, so this is my first real review of it). Ok, but I wouldn’t run out and buy more.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle and then amber foggy ale with medium tan head. Aroma of week old brown banana, rising bread and a hint of cover. Taste of gum, orange bringing some sweetness and malt finish. Nice bubbly and short sweet finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear pale to medium amber with one finger of pillowy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is banana and cloves, doughy yeast, stone fruit, caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium body, lively carbonation, off-dry lingering spicy finish with a moderate alcohol warming. (4/5)
Not a lot to say about this - a true classic, and one of the best Belgians outside of Belgium. Smooth and drinkable despite the higher ABV, which manifests as a pleasant warming. (16/20)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is amber with a persistent off-white cap. Nose is lots of doughy Belgian yeast, cloves, apricots, plums, caramel. Taste is sweet but surprisingly dry. Lots of yeast, nice, but not overpowering, alcohol warmth. Nice quasi-micro.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy meduim brown with small head. Aroma of candied malts and subtle stone fruit. Taste of light caramel a bit of grain and a slight bitterness. Very well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best triple fermented brews out there. Balanced complex and not over sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is sweet fruit cinnamon, honey, orange juice, banana and Belgian yeast. Lively carbonation. Taste follows the nose, somewhat muted. Bready, grainy fruit. Booze is well hidden. Not a big fan of this one.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
The artwork/story of the flying canoe is great but I’m one of the minority that feels sick after tasting this. Sour, vegetable, Belgian yeast gone wild. I now literally run away at the sight of this beer. Oh no! There’s a photo of the bottle!! (footsteps pounding rapidly into the distance, glass breaking, dogs barking...)

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Couleur ambrée avec un col respectable. Aromes de fruits rouges, épices, céréales, alcool, noix. Complexes, mais gout générique de unibroue... Correct pour moi....
