look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
330ml with best by date of 26/01/08 poured into a chimay goblet.
a: poured a dark golden, lots of carbonation (could not see though it when up to a light), nice head that quickly goes away but, forms somwhat white islands on the top due to all the carbonation. bubbly lace hands on the side of the glass on each drink.
s: very fruity; definetly a strong "pear" scent surrounded by a floral bouquet.
t: citrus and spice and everything is nice including the slightly bitter aftertaste.
m: imagine drinking a very dry champagne.
d: very smooth and alcohol content is masked very well. very easy to over do it with this one.

A: Golden, brassy in color with a slight haze and a towering frothy white head that mellows nicely to a layer of bubbles.
S: Fresh dough and yeast with layers of toasted malt, caramel, light candy sugar and delicate esters reminiscent of fresh apricot. A touch of grassy and spicy hops are noticeable but not strong.
T: Sweet but not overly sweet layer of candy sugar over a smooth, toasted grain profile that is clean and slightly drying. Light caramel, apricot and hay with a balancing push of hops that are both grassy and spicy with a white pepper character. Unique yeast has complexity without any clear distinction of fruit or spice but a definitive player in the taste nonetheless. Alcohol remains well hidden into the finish which is on the dry side.
M: Medium body beer with moderate carbonation and a smooth clean, dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden for it's strength.
O: Delightful beer with flavors that keep unfolding as this warms up. Top notch yeast and fresh clean tasting ingredients play credit to meticulous brewing practices and a stand out beer! I have passed this up many times but glad to finally sit down and taste it.
