2010 Bottle of GI Fleur - Label says that it can develop fro up to 5 years in the bottle.

A- Hazy redish orange with tiny, tiny bubbles forming a tall head that slims down to next to just a thin layer
S- Thick smell of begium yeasts and flowers. Some tartness coming through too.
T- This beer seems to be front loaded. Intense carbination, tartness and classic belguim characteristics up front, but fades to almost nothing. Maybe a light floral aftertaste, but that's it... like it wipes the slate clean with each gulp.
M- Very fizzy up front and thin in the back

O- Glad I gave it a crack, but I wish the flavors lasted longer... its and nice ride, but a short one.

2011 bottle. Pour is hazed bright golden orange with a tight white head. Nose is strong brett, citrus and a good bit of lemon, dusty notes, hint of herbal tea behind. Taste also has a ton of brett, a little overpowering in the flavor, still extremely citrusy with a good bit of lemon. More dusty notes, moderately herbal, hints of cobb webb. Body is light, even so faintly syrupy in back, very assertively carbonated, and a fairly dry finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Light brown with slight orange tint.
Aroma: Nice aroma with a mixture of fruit and floral.
Flavor: A medium bodied, highly carbonated, with a malty, fruity flavor. Fairly light bodied. Lighter than what I’d expected of an ale.
Overall: Light for an ale. Good beer which is quite complex for a light bodied beer. A tad bit carbonated.
