bottled in 2009 and tasted on 2/21/2013

A: Golden, yet looks murky (reddish/brownish)and has large carbonation. with white head.

S: smell somewhat skunky, lost of cherries, raisins, pineapples, and toasty

T: notes of grapefruit/citrus, cherries, its sweet yet has mellowing bitterness

M: Large carbonation, large body. yet feels like your drinking a soda

O: Letting this beer develop really helped mellow the booziness. the alcohol is slightly notable

Served in snifter.

Appearance: A real nice semi-cloudy amber has a heavy light orange tint all over. Light tiny bubbles that body sediments floating throughout and white head roughly a finger's length.

Smell: A yeasty bread scent. Comes off with hard fruit, preferably dark and just inside your nostrils like hot air under a balloon. I say that in regards to it's sticky feel.

Taste: A little all over the place with this brew, yes a little sweet but lightly bitter at the same time. Almost like raisins perfectly blended with the right touch of bread.

Mouth: Medium, sticky...it leaves a little bit of a sour after taste. It comes off a little dry similar to a red wine but still doesn't fail.

Overall: This beer did it for me just right. I prefer the Blue a little more but this one is still on point. Grab your favorite pork chop and give this a go. Salud!

2010 vintage, caged and corked bottle purchased from Slowbeer by @epiclurk. Shared this with @tobeerornottobe and @LaitueGonflable.

Pours a very clear golden hue, with a frothy, but bubbly and large-bubbled head of white. Lacing is streaking and falling, but solid enough. Body is exceptionally light. Looks pretty solid.

Nose is classically Belgian: big rounded sweetness, soft malt and honey characters, with just the hint of some esters and fragrant greenery from the yeast. There's a touch of acidity to it, but it's all very well integrated.

Similar characters on the palate, slightly earthy Belgian tones, sweetness and spice on the finish. Mild, stretchy funk adds an odd overtone, but it's all just part of the rich tapestry. Overall, it's all the classic, slightly redolent, earthy, funky and rounded Belgian characters in a bigger and more expansive format. I really just takes me back to one of the squares of Bruges or Antwerp. Tastes of nostalgia.

Overall, it's good: I mean, it was always going to be good. It's good, in a standard, comfortable and recognisable way. It's good so that you know it's good, and so you can't disagree with the fact it's good. It's comfortable, it's warm, it's familiar.
