4.25/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Blonde as straw and a dense white head. Very tiny bubbles rise in lines racing to the fast gone head of this semi-transparent 'Special Blond of the Emperor'. Smells of apple and champagne sweet like an asti. Taste is very similar to the smell almost like a wine but bordering on that tartness of a wine. There is a thicker feel to this than a champagne and lots of undertones of sugars like those in a belgian triple, which seem to come out more with warmth. A very good beer and worthy of praise.

Cheers!!

3.8/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

2013 corked and caged 750ml bottle.

A good pop when I pulled the cork out. Despite a careful pour, I still get a 3 finger head of billowy foam. The colour is orange yellow and cloudy.

It smells spicy and fruity and yeasty. Coriander, very light clove, apple and probably peach.

The taste has the spice with the clove being more aggressive, coriander, and the fruit I mentioned in the smell. Some sweet flavour but also a mild hop bitterness in there as well. It finishes very dry. Alcohol is not intrusive.

Medium bodied and not too shabby a drinker, this is nice.

4.24/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Gentle hand. Dated 02/05/2013.

A: Cloudy, golden yellow body with 1+ finger of sudsy, but thick, white head. Good retention. Impressive lacing.

S: Mellow, sweet Belgian yeast with a touch of spice. Coriander. Lighter clove. Grape, pear, apple, peach. Honey. Wheat notes, straw. Vanilla. There is some bubble gum and cotton candy that bring a certain uniqueness to this one.

T: Round, yeasty sweetness with a fruity character. Mild hop bitterness develops. Fairly dry finish and rather clean. A slight bit of lingering fruit on the aftertaste. Low alcohol presence for 10% ABV.

M: Moderately high carbonation with a moderate body. Simultaneously creamy and refreshingly effervescent. The latter helps offset the alcohol.

O: Very nice Belgian blonde with good complexity. Sweet, but lots of character, I thought. All around solid and dangerously drinkable for a 10%er.

Prost!
