The aroma is malty, yeasty, spicy, and herbal. The appearance is hazy gold with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma but it’s not something I love. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall it’s about what I expected but it’s not something I want again.

strong and flavorful, it packs a real punch with some deep malts and herbal hops on the side. slight taste of mustard but it does not take away the anything that make this a truly great piece.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Gusher. Pours with a ridiculously large white head and a hazy holden body. Good lacing. Aroma is a bit tart with grapes, some spices, fruits, dryness, some alcohol and yeast. Taste is yeasty with strong alcohol, fruits, dryness and bread. Even a little bit hoppy. Lively carbonation dry mouthfeel and warming.

Bottiglia da 33cl andata a male; la voto per fare un +1. Spero di berne una buona la prossima volta.

My Bottom Line:
This doughy Belgian Strong Ale focuses on its pillowy mouthfeel and subtle spiciness (the union of mustard seeds and leafy hops) to humbly but surely satisfy the taste buds.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cloudy beige-golden.
-The yeast storm was inevitable even though the bottles been upright for weeks.
-A few banana esters are perceptible, adding complexity.
-The flavor profile is soft but not entirely compelling.
-The spicy, leafy hoppiness provides decent, but shortlived bitterness.
-Effervescence is very comfortable and helps in building this cozy mouthfeel.

wow--mustard seeds: actually, surprisingly refreshing and strong; unattractive, distinct spicy aroma-- i didn’t like it; yeast, heat, sweet, somewhat dry, and lightly sour; mustard of course, but balanced with other ingredients well enough; okay.

Second mustard beer in our two mustard beer tasting. It pours hazy deep gold with copper hues and thin off white head. The light aroma has notes of Belgian sugar, lighter colored fruity esters, some dark fruit esters and a hint of mustard. The taste is slick and sweet and moves toward dark fruity esters and a mild background, OK faint background, of mustard spice. I also get some yeasty spice and faint banana. Like the other mustard beer the mustard spice is just too faint. This would taste a whole lot better with a bigger mustard presence.

Cloudy orange pour with a small white head. Hmm, mustard... Yes, I enjoy mustard, in a beer it is so-so for me. Fruity and spicy throughout, the mustard soft in the finish, but I didn’t think it added much, more just a dry spicy kick. I thought the worst thing about this beer was the excess alcohol, hot and boozy, very distracting. Kinda tastes like a boozy tripel, but with a bit of extra spice to the finish, almost a little spicy heat creeps back up afterward. This just didn’t jive well for me.
