So here's the thing ... we found this bottle solo at a local beer store. The bottle looks a little weathered and on the back label the numbers 1, possibly 4, and 10 are ticked. Whatever the grade, keep this is in mind ...

A- Pours a light yellow with a sizable white head that disappears almost immediately leaving a ring of head around the edges and coming up from the etching at the bottom of the goblet. There are also a lot of chunks of stuff ... which an internet search deems normal but I'm deducting points for.

S-Cidery or meadlike. Sweet with some little alcohol. A little like if canned fruit cocktail juice fermented ...

T- Sweet with some bitterness and maybe even a little sour (throw salt in their and I've covered all my taste bases)... like fermented apple cider.

M- Dry, maybe even champagne-like.

O- The appearance is just so far out of my comfort zone, I can't not penalize it. That said, the taste, smell and mouthfeel were fine, but not stunning in any way. No need to ever try this again, but maybe it's for the connoisseurs.

Just disgusting.

It tastes like rubber..

Very simillar to Goudale but even stronger (in the same bad way). I really like sweet beers but those ones. I think it's awfull.

The apparence is weak and the carbonnation is decent.

I didn't succeed to drink 1/3 of the bottle.

Even if this bottle is beautiful, the content is not that amazing.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks for the gift, NoSignsOfPain!

Clear golden orange and yellow with lots of floating, chunky sediment throughout. The head is massive, thick, persistent and bone white. It leaves the glass incredibly messy with lace. Gorgeous!

The aroma is a nice combination of juicy white fruits (banana, apple, and pear), a bit of lemon, a mild Belgian yeast character, and freshly baked bread.

The flavor is not quite as sweet as the aroma may have indicated, but it's plenty fruity. There's a nice combination of banana and apple in the forefront, along with a moderate bitterness, a mild Belgian yeast tang, and doughy bread. Incredibly drinkable.

Medium to full mouthfeel with luscious, delicate, full carbonation. A joy to drink.

This is perhaps my favorite Belgian strong pale ale.
