4.4/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle, corked and caged. Served chilled in a champagne flute

2005 Vintage

Now, before I review this I have to say that this was my first gusher bottle. I carefully took it from my cellar to the fridge, when I opened it over a third of the contents went gushing all over my kitchen floor.... about 6 or 7 pounds worth is in the mop bucket now but anyways, on to the review

Pours with very aggressive and vigorous carbonation. Lots of small prickly bubbles thundering up from the bottle of the glass, straw yellow clear body with a few shades of amber. Fluffy half inch head forms with a careful pour, patchy champagne-esqe lacing

Smell, sweet and dry fragrant belgian yeast character. Fresh flowers and lavender, eastern spices, tonnes of fresh ginger and honey. Slight hint of aniseed and angostura bitters, spicy apples and pear with a hint of clove and cinnamon. Some slight barnyard funk lingering in the background, some cidery notes and musty blankets

Taste, crisp, carbonated and spicy mouthfeel. Lavender and purple violets, fresh peaches and dried apricots soaked in perfume and lots of spice like star anise, clove, cinnamon and corriander. Slight soap character also with a slightly chalky mouthfeel. Very typical dry belgian yeast character found in alot of big strong pale ales. Crisp lingering champagne dryness, spicy zesty lemon rind and some cidery notes on the finish. Little bit of dry barnyard gueuze character, some slick warming perfumed alcohol on the finish.

Losing close to half the bottle while opening really pissed me off. Things started badly however the depth of flavour, inventivness and originality of this beer really make up for it. Big belgian character with champagne mouthfeel and brewing techniques, a very good match it seems. I can't see myself buying this very often due to its high price however its a superb beer which I'm very glad to have tried

4.41/5  rDev +7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From the 2011 corked, caged bottle. Sampled on June 16, 2014 I waited to post this for review number 1,800 even though I had it a week ago.

Lovely pale yellow pour that overflows to a foamy cream colored head. I need a towel to clean up the overflow mess. Great clarity.

Wonderful aroma that highlights toasted pale malts, Belgian yeast, coriander, pepper, ginger, and clove. Textbook Belgian Abbey brew.

The body is medium to full but it tickles my senses like champagne.

Similar to the aroma I pick up more spicy characters in the taste. The ginger really forces itself forward beyond the biscuit malts and other spices. Lingering light fruit character at the end. If someone was to ask me 6 months from now what I thought of this beer my answer would be one word "Ginger." Good or bad. That's what I take away from it.

3.88/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - golden body with active sparking carbonation. Big white head sinks down and retains well.

S - dusty yeast, grassy, minerals, muted fruit, pears mostly, old spices,

T - fruity yeast, pears, apples, muscat grapes, hints of citrus, sturdy mineral notes. There's some cereal sweetness in the but finishes dry and crisp.

M - moderate carbonation, drinks like sparkling wine.

Interesting. It's like beer champagne. This is my first beer of the style, so I don't have anything to grade it against. While I appreciate this beer, it's not something I would seek out. It would be fun to show up to a tasting with this.
