1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
For this highly priced beer specialty, I expected a better product. I’ ve tasted Belgian beers which only cost a fraction of this so- called specialty. A hint of mould, combined with a muddy appearance. Thumbs down on this!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Vielen Dank an Martin. Das Bier ist süßlich-scharf, leicht süßlich, etwas klebrig und recht herb-scharf. Unrund, nicht zu süffig. Irgendwie enttäuschend. Vor allem für den Preis...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A bright orange-brown coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong winey aroma along with meaty, caramel, bready, plus a zesty fruitiness. Medium-dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, mouth tingling winey and fruity zestiness is then mellowed by a bready, caramel flavour, that is bolstered by a background meatiness. The finish is long and flavourful.

cereal and some hop aroma; golden bright color; taste not impressive; lots of carbonation (1/3 of the bottle explode out). I was expecting more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 750mL. Home. A golden orange beer with many bubbles. Big off-white head with a great retention. Aroma of caramel, sugary fruit, roast, spices, light biscuit. Medium warming sweet, light lasting bitter then warming again. Full body, oily texture, good carbonation, sweet warming finish and light herbal bitter. Overall, beautiful bottle and beer, average aroma, too sweet, nearly nauseating. Disappointed. Too expensive for this.

Rated based on notes taken 8 Oct 2011 -- One year old 2010 vintage, drank with my two sisters and my girlfriend (at the time) in memorium of my civilian life and in celebration of my military life. A very nice champagne-like beer, perfect for the occasion.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (2010 or 2011 vintage; shared by Tmoney99). Looks good; a hazy apricot with white head. Smells of Belgian yeast and fruit with a mild semi-sweet backbone. Sparkly with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Some light apple. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled Nov 2012, 750ml cork and cage. Clear pinky dark red, sparkling, big foamy cream head. Aroma is cookie, yeasty. Body is medium, very foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste is sweet, biscuity, some tangy alcohol. Sweet and malty with a crisp finish. Still drinking OK, but clearly past its best now.

Sehr hübscher Bernstein-Farbton. Geruch nach Vanille, gelben Früchten und Karamell und schmeckt dann auch danach.
