2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale dark yellow pour with massive floaties, small head.
Grainy german malt aroma, almost some vomit notes,mostly sweetly german breadiness,some strange spice maybe with the malt aroma the hops(if any) seem medicinal and subtle
Im detecting a poorly stored bottle maybe,or infection i notice a light crud ring around the neck so maybe this was autolized too or infected.
Really it just seemed stale yeast tasting.There is a pronounce malt light sweetness, fairly good hop taste but bittering is subtle too, with stale yeast off taste.Bottle says ko9h7 09: 02 whatever that means.
The 9.5 is very well hidden though with mild spicy and a heavy malt with balanced sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comparing the bottle and draft back to back at Eulogy in January 2015. BOTTLE: Cloudy yellow gold pour with a large frothy foam head. Full and funky. Whole wheat bread. Lemon verbina. Unripe oranges. White peppercorns. DRAFT: (top of the keg) Less cloudy pour with a very large marshmallow white top. Less sour, funk and spice in the draft as well - though all elements still present. Sensing stronger honey and candy caramel notes in the draft. More citrus pith in the bottle. ABV is nicely hidden in both versions. Nicely unrefined. More of a big hoppy Brett Farmhouse.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Belgian ale muito característica do estilo cor levemente âmbar, espuma nada persistente, muito alcoólica e com um dulçor característico belga!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden straw, medium white head with pretty nice retention. Nose is malt, perfume, hops, bubblegum notes. Flavor is sweet and malty, slightly bready notes, fruity and spicy notes along with some hops in the finish. Finish has somewhat of a "hole" in it, the flavor simply drops off. Lingering hops and spice. Surprisingly drinkable for the ABV, hides the alcohol pretty well.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
- Alcoholpercentage van 9,5%
- Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken
- Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken
- Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk
