3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 750ml. Pours a hazy light amber body with average carbonation and a fair white frothy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with fruity (citrus, melon, pineapple), flowery, and caramel hints. Its strong, fresh malty/hoppy taste carries fruity and yeasty notes and leaves a decent bittersweet, sour finish. This is very close to a Flemish sour ale. Very interesting product.

Bottle. Had not much hope for this after reading the reviews, but i found it great. A strong, balanced beligan beer with some almonds and marcipan lurking. Not sour at all. Great with cake.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head: beige, medium, sparkling, zero retention. Colour: amber, clear.
Aroma: wild yeast/old cheese-like sharpness, some uber-sweet dried fruit like fig, vinous and some alcohol too. Taste: quite sweet, sweet dried fruit, some alcoholic/phenolic spiciness, but no actual ethanol detected. Still you can feel its warming effect.
Whether it’s a belgian style or not - I don’t know, but certainly has that alcoholic phenolic character. In the end, it’s a quite sweet, desert beer. Cool looking for special occasions.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011 Vintage poured on 4/22/13. Says enjoy before July 2012. Whatevs. Pours clear light copper with a big frothy head. Aroma of funky yeast, pear, peaches, mango, pineapple, and a hint of spice (coriander?). Some definite honey aroma. Actually quite aromatic and fruity. Flavor has a sharp strange bite. Almost like it is sour. Very dry with lots of carbonation. Light and slick mouthfeel. The sharpness takes away from what seems to be a nice fruity Belgian/Saison brew. Did something go wrong? Not bad overall, but this could have been better. Does seem to grow on me as it goes, with fruit flavors coming out.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy, golden amber colour with a cream head. Pretty lively head that is sustained by a big carbonation. Very caramel/biscuit malt aroma with a small touch of citrus hops. Taste is very biscuity, heavy malt flavours. A slight sour note on the after taste. Had to enjoy this beer with someone else so I could get through it. I’ll have this beer just once.

Wham! The cork blows off this sucker and bounces about the kitchen in quite the comedic fashion. Lasting head is fueled by steady and continuous carbonation. Light nose of ripe apples. Big malt body. Crisp and glowing in the glass. This one got the afternoon off to a good clip.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thick creamy white and long lasting. High carbonation. Aroma is creamy, orange zest, crisp hops and mild malt. Getting mild spice notes. Flavor is caramel, buttery, very sweet fruit such as pineapple and bitter fruit such as lemon. The carbonation tickles the tongue, gives it a champagne texture. Color is bronze. I was expecting a lighter color such as yellow. Excellent beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff juni-11: stor enighet om at dette var merkelige greier. Lys gylden med højt, højt skum. Ufrisk aroma av (belgisk) gjær, litt krydder og gammel marmelade, I tillegg er alkoholduften tydelig. Smme ufriske karakter på smaken.

Bottle. Sweet and extremely complex aroma. Some sourness. Not really a Belgian strong but a great sour. 2 years aged. Very unique and special experience
