Best since the comeback (minus the golden monkeys I was drinking tint he interm). Light head and malty aroma hide the enchanting treasures of taste that await. Tastes like lemon sugar cookies with an unexpected lingering finish--aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with a note of sherry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lighlty sweet, lightly acidc, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Well-hidden alcohol, and a pleasant aroma, but overall pretty uninteresting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle POurs a clear light orange witha busy fizzy offwhite head. Aromas are musty spicy and yeasty. Flavors are some of the classic begian yeast and spice. The ABV is there but hidden well for 11+%. Feel is a bit chalky and the finish is quick and slightly dry. Carbonation is quite lively. Fizzy even. YTastes more like a belgian strong than a BW. Not bad.

Bottle. Large ivory head with sparse lacing, transparent, very little carbonation, and an orange hue. Sweet and some fruit aroma. Flavor was sweet, tingly, hoppy and the alcohol was fairly well hidden IMO. Tingly mouthfeel. Mild aroma and flavor for a barley wine.
