12 oz brown bottle with a best before date on the back label.
Appearance: Hazed orange amber, tiny yeast particles are noticed in the brew. The lace is light in retention though the carbonation holds some there while active.
Smell: Bready, almost cake like malt aroma. Dollop of spice and ripe fruit with a well seen alcohol of esters and light solvent.
Taste: Faint caramel malt, ripe pine apple fruitiness, and bold spices that is dominant of clove. Heavy side of phenols with a spicy sweet alcohol, touch herbal from the phenols also. Straight up hop bitterness is light compared to the other flavours but still seems to flavour and balance.
Mouthfeel: Nearly excessively crisp, solid medium body with some slickness.
Drinkability & Notes: Packed with flavour, this one does not hold back at all. Very expressive and the sheer complexity does it for me. I keep this one around to keep my taste buds in check.

4.88/5 rDev +15.9%

Presentation: "Maudite", translates to "Cursed." Lost souls in a canoe (heading straight for hell), an evil devil with crossed arms greets and "Beer On Lees" (beer on yeast) are all present on the label. Bottle refermented in a 750ml brown.
Appearance: Wood stain in colour. Pours extremely frothy, as a champagne, and settles into a thin creamy ring that clings to the sides of the glass. Some haze appears in the glass.
Smell: Spicy aromas, alcohol notes and fruity esters. Yeast aromas hit the nose as you get to the dregs of the bottle.
Taste: Whoa! This brew has some complexities! At first, fruit and higher kilned malt flavours coat the palate. Then, a sudden black pepper spiciness, tartness and fruitiness come into domination -- going spicy once again at the end. A very subtle hop flavour is noted which gives the brew some balance.
Notes: This is an outstanding Belgian-style ale! Comparable to a fine wine, easily accompanying most cuisine styles. Very drinkable for an 8% abv brew, a tease beer as you want more. If this is "cursed", damn us to hell!
