3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky gold with a big frothy white head. Aroma of Belgian beer yeast, pepper, herbs, a hint of fresh citrus fruit and a little bit of alcohol. Taste is only lightly sweet, pleasantly dry turning into a nice mellow bitterness. Creamy full body with fizzy carbonation and a pleasant bitter finish with a reprise of the herbs and citrus aroma.
Very good, definitely something different and for many a nice surprise. Already had this at a few celebrations to work around people bringing cheap champagne. Worked well, tastes way better. Only downside - it’s a bit boozy, but we found how much it shines through varies a bit from bottle to bottle.

Bottle from a trade with Werckmeister, many thanks. Pale golden color with big white head. Aroma is malty, sweet and tart fruits. Taste is big candied sugar and honey booze, slightly tart, typical Belgian Strong character. Carbonation is lower than expected, good. Maybe a little bit too boozy.

Drunk in a snifter at BrauKunstLive! 2013 Festival. I tried their Brew Secco, and 8.5% Starkbier that they say was modeled after a Belguim style and fermented with Champagne yeast (Proseco is a popular, cheap northern Italian Champagne.) I loved it. Boy did it ever have foam! After they poured the glass, I waited 3 or 4 minutes while talking to the staff in the stand and a man came up and said, "You got the Brew Secco, only champagne yeast make foam that strong."
I finally had to slurp through the foam to get to the beer, tickling my nose in the process. The taste was dry, champagne-like brut, but beery too, for it was thick and malty to match a really lemony flavor. A WOW beer.

75cl bottle. Pour is orangey gold with a massive white head that fades to a thick film. Nose is spicy, funky, winey, with banana and orange peel. Taste is sweet-ish with notes of Belgian ester, light fruit and some sugar. Finish is strangely earthy & funky. Really interesting little beer.
