3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to hopdog for sharing...
Appears a light gold with a fluffy 2 finger white head. White film with a solid collar. Little bits of carbonation pump to the top.
Smell is like champaigne spiced with honey and pepper.
Tastes like champaigne spiced with honey and pepper with alcohol detected.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and spicey with a mild sweetness.
This one is ok but the abv is noticable and I’m just not crazy about it.

Bottle 0.33 l. Pale yellow gold. Earthy and organic nose. Flavor is similar, intense with a fruity ciderlike touch, slightly sour, but then again full. Very interesting, first I’ve had of this style and would gladly have another one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yields an amber-golden color with a medium sized, froth, white head.
Smells of flowery, slightly tart yeast with a hint of wet grass to it, coated up by white bread dough. Reveals a subtle clove and pepper spice note once the beer warms up.
Has a medium carbonation, which turns up the volume after the swallow, finishing effervescent and refreshing with a noteable warmth, once the liquid goes down to the belly.
Tastes of calming white bread malts with an uprising, biting spiciness, inheriting a sweet, sugary note, opening up the palate to cakey malts. Finishes with rock sugar, bitter cardamom and dried herbs among an aqueous softness.
Tastes like a lighter Triple, which got a prominent spiciness to it, defining the taste while the beer remains pleasantly refreshing.

Blonde with neon white head. Probably some wheat in this one. Nice herbal aroma with a hint of vanilla and yeast. Palate is medium body with long finish. Taste more like a belgian blonde than a Biere de Garde. Missing somewhat in herbs and/or sourness. Quite yeasty with a lot of fruits. Nice everyday Belgian.

Bière sympathique pour des soirées sympas entre amis!

Can. I guess it’s not aged that long. Clear amber, only slightly darker than a pale lager, with a thick, white head. Malt aroma, with some rich caramel and roasted notes. Sweet, heavy and full body. Finishes a bit sweet and long. But, a distinct style I’ve not explored before.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Frothy steady head. Sweet and malty, slightly syrupy. Strong in alcohol which is quite apparent. Aromatic - but not in an entirely positive way.

Amber with a light head. Effervescent with a little spice, some malts, light fruit with a dry aftertaste. Not bad

Great beer. Lovely appearence and lots of estery flavours with a nice bitter finish. Alcohol in this is well balanced in this one and has a nice cleanliness to it which makes this a very pleasent beer indeed.
