auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2012
750ml Bottle. Lot #3. Dancing plum, apple, and light pudding spice aroma. A soft wheat-y creaminess develops quickly and delivers a delicate and soft mix of toothy grain, minerals, pear, and brine. Its flavor profile instantly reminds me of Duvel and De Dolle, reaching those desired lofty heights of dried fig and fresh apple soft yeast quality. The champagne finish probably adds something, but I’m not sure its worth the price here. There’s also a hint of corn somewhere mid-palate that could be a sign of fatigue or adjuncts used to get the gravity produced. The meat of this experience is the quality of the fermentation and ingredients, which finishes with delectable juicy smack. Easily some of the better Belgian-style Ale I’ve had from a new-ish brewer in a long, long time.

Scopey (13010) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle at Craft Islington, thanks to Leighton. It pours cloudy dirty gold with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet, tangy, white grape, bready malts, alcohol boost, spice, cereal and a touch of gooseberry. The taste is bitter - sweet, white grape, gooseberry, warming alcohol, sherbet, straw and candied citrus fruits. Medium - full body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Works pretty well. Good fun!

2015-12-27. Crisp dark golden yellow, nice white head. 3+ Aroma of sweet doughy bready pale malt, biscuity touches. Flavour is similar, sweet doughy pale malt, yeasty character. Dry moderately alcoholic finish. Medium bodied effervescent palate. Decent, mostly hits the target style but it’s overly sweet and just okay. 7/4/7/3/14+ Bottle from Boston Wine Exchange, Boston.

Went in expecting to hate this and i didnt at all. Aroma is apple joose, bread, pear, a bit musty, and lemon. Taste is moderate sweetness with pear apple and dough. Finishes lightly tart and dry. Nice thanksgiving sipper. Sad that the brewery is no more.

kevinsenn (2052) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle. Spicy and tart aroma. No tartness in the taste, but lots of sweetness and spiciness. Like a spice cookie. Sweet, not dry, finish. Good but a bit too sweet.

a very strong belgian flavored ale. Tons of caarb, booze and malts. Tastes fresh, pretty authentic, The carb hides the sweetness well. Dry finish.

nimbleprop (7626) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2015
750ml bottle I’ve had in the cellar maybe 15months. Pours a mostly clear gold with some frothy, white head. Nose has some candy sweetness, some honey, lots of white grape - muscato mostly, mild spice, mild yeast. Flavor reminded me of a mead mixed with champagne, the honey character is not only in the taste but also the mouthfeel which is enveloping, lots of white grape too, some yeast... but honestly the flavor fell off some. Again, fairly easy to drink at 11%.
