330ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pours hazy gold with a massive had, quite over carbonated, predict this might turn into a gusher given its four year BBE! Aromas of banana, cream and bounty bar. Taste has quite a sweetness, yeastiness, too sweet for me. Prickly texture, oily finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Birmingham Beer Bash, Jul ’13, pre ’afternoon nap’. Golden pour with a beautiful big white head. Sweet Belgian aroma with a twist of lemon\lime. Lots of thick bready malts, cut through with a dry finish and a smack of juicy fruit from the hops. Carbonation is a little heavy but otherwise a good riff on a Tripel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö
Cloudy amber color with compact head. Aroma of fudge, hence a bit buttery and suspicious. Good body structure; it had a good and rare real fudge flavor without the feared diacetyl, caramel, some nice sharp spicy yeast, very light aniseed, and fairly strong bitterness; warming alcohol feeling too.

Bottle poured into tulip glass. Orange-brown (more brown) with a very thick almost white head. Lasts for ages. Aroma is peppery, a little spice, a little banana. Sort of weizeny. Taste is pretty sweet, with a mid-bitter finish. Not as yeasty as I was expecting.
