2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy yellow, with a very foamy head. Too-prominent hops flavor with little complexity. Not terrible, but ultimately unsatisfying.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Bottled in Amsterdam. Dark golden brown pour. Not exactly excited after finishing this one, too alcoholic and simple. Dry finish but the beginning sugar puts me off. [2006.04.25: 2.8]
What a curiosity that rating was! Hereís a fresh bottle, best before end 08/07/16. Nose is very sweet, golden and fruity with some strong acetone flying in, touch of spice. Pour is initially about 70% foam despite my good practices and best efforts [not a gusher or infected], eventually clear golden with a a large foamy off-white head. Taste lightly sweet with some fusel burn and nail polish remover, extremely phenolic and heavily spicy with golden pils malt and a little earthy character, spice. Very warming, even a burny, and Iím not going fast here, itís just freaking rocket fuel. Very rough medium-full body, medium fruitiness with medium bitterness and a dry finish. Touch rubbery. Iíve had better results brewing my own tripel with this yeast, wtf are they doing? Am I supposed to wait two years for this to calm down? What is it about this one?! [2015. 03.11: 2.6]

Bottle. White and lasting head. Unclear yellow body. Fruity alcohol aroma. Flavor dominated by alcohol, otherwise very spicy and hoppy. Too bad not served cold enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Fat lasting head, good smell, a crisp smooth taste, pours golden, such a mellow for 9.5% alcohol. This beer is beautiful, i love it.
