3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold with a frothy white head. Nose is citrus and coriander with just a little hops and bread. A little thin Feel with a similar flavor to the nose though not as rich as expected. A bit of banana and hops toward the back with a dry finish. Alcohol is well-hidden. Overall quite good though it lacks the depth to make it an excellent beer.

Pours a medium brown with a little red and a full dense beige head that leaves lacing and a smaller covering head. Nose is ripe dried fruit. Palate is medium body on the light side. Taste is sweet dried fruit. Overall, it seems to be lighter than Trois Pistoles. 12 oz bottle BBY: 4/25/17

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark brown beer with red notes, a head is big and blond. Aroma has flowers, dried and dark fruitness, plums, some spices and bananas. Taste has dried fruits, quite strong peppery spicyness, some flowers. Medium bodied, strong carbonation but smoothly. Aromatic and dark fruity, surprisingly fresh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dried fruits (apricots, plums, etc.) come to mind. Yeasty and malty sweetness with a lingering earthiness. The higher alcohol is barely detectable. Although, admittedly, this was not my usually fare it was nonetheless a beautifully complex and well constructed beer. Served in a tulip at about 58 degrees.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.341 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, bottled in August 2015. Clear, dark reddish amber with a medium large, foamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, brown sugar, prunes, dates and coconut. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel, brown sugar, prunes, dates and coconut, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy and a little warming finish. Medium to full body, smooth and effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. The aroma and taste are rather faint, but this is overall very well-balanced and round. Very easy drinking for that abv, no alcohol whatsoever detectable. Very nice!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A complete classic. Unfiltered amber-brown body. Big, fluffy, off-white/beige head. A little bit of mineral dryness in the aroma that I tend to believe wasn’t there "back in the day". Somewhere between a Belgian Amber and Dubbel, this one displays a lot of finesse. Great mouthfeel really carries it. Caramel, amber malt, brown sugar. Sweet, but not sticky or heavy. Great beer.
