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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pale cloudy yellow color with a huge aired white head. Good retention. The head never disappears completely leaving a small layer and many lacings around
S: Delicious perfume of hops: Citrus and earthy. Honey, caramel malts and strong bready Belgian style yeasts in the end
T: Follows the nose. Malts, honey and hoppy bitterness. Quite dry and bready. Hops are again, citrus and a bit earthy. Belgian style yeasts "completing the party". Extremely balanced and well done
M: Medium body and carbonation. A bit molasses and a considerable bitterness. Not much alcohol could be noticed despite the 9.5% ABV
O: High drinkability. Delicious bitterness. Reminded me a Duvel overloaded with hops. Same impression that Iíve had with the "La Chouffe Dobbelen IPA".

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a yellow / golden color which is a little hazy, and a lot of bubbles. The aroma is rich of hops and some hints of fruits, spices and a little citrus. The taste is full, warming but overall a nice bitterness is very well noticable in the end. The finish is dry, long and the bitterness is long noticable. Reminds me of a tripel beer, but there is a little too much alcohol in it, and that is well noticable. Further itís a pretty nice beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is strong boozy with faint orange hints and grain. Taste is malty, toffee, again highly alcoholic, fruity yeast. Yeasty caramel finish. Too strong alcohol notes to really make it in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color, very cloudy and with many floating particles of yeast. The initial head and carbonation are medium, but with enough retention. Body is medium and creamy. Aroma is citric orange and lemon, malt and caramel. Taste is citric, quite bitter and a slightly sweet. Itís a beer with very complex flavors and aromas, quite hoppy for the style, but very balanced with a long, dry aftertaste.
