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

corked bottle into champagne flute

A - frothy, big bubbly white head that fades quickly. very champagne like. there is a thin layer of head bright white head made from big sized bubbles, which keep rising up from the bottom like champagne. the colour is a basic light honey yellow, or straw colour. the only thing that could make this better

S - the very faint nose is malty with some yeast, faint hints of apple (kind of like a tripel apple). very hard to get any good nose out of it considering it has to be served and drank cold.

T - a slightly spicy flavour, with some light malts and fruity notes. initial flavors are spicy apple, though the spice aspect is well coupled with the alcohol; this is one of the many aspects that keeps this beer a beer, and quite distinct (though quite familiar to a champagne) from sparkling whites. the initial taste is also a bit sweet on the roof of the mouth, but the alcohol warmth keeps this in check. the finish is pale malts and some floral hops, which are actually subtly throughout the whole beer now that i think of it; alcohol, not dry, kicks in for a split second. after taste is very much like how a tripel smells: light fruits and some distinct mal sweetness.

MF&D - the brew is a tad bit too thick for anything equitable to champagne. though this is only a minor setback the amount fixes that aspect, highly carbonated and very true to champagne feel.

a very interesting style of beer, doubtless. not to be considered a champagne by any means, but the beer like quality is very iffy, this is really a border-line style and a true innovation of modern brewing.

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.
