3.03/5  rDev -17.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

11.2oz bottle with date code notches of Dec 2011. Meaning that this bottle is really quite old, which can be either good or bad, depending on circumstances. Purchased from the clearance cooler at the store.

A. Hazy opaque amber brown, no head to speak of, a fair quantity of sediment.
S. Tons of honey smell, apples in the background, but also lots of funky mustiness.
T. Very yeasty with that spicy belgian bite we all know of. Unfortunately, there is little else there. All the apple smell has nothing at all to match in the flavor. The wet musty cardboard flavor of an over-aged beer is simply so strong that it has left me alone with it and the Belgian Yeast pepper to assault my tongue. So sad.
M. Well, I do at least like the way it sits in my mouth. The body (although sedimented) is appropriately heavy for the way I like my beer. Don't get me wrong, It's not actually heavy, merely medium-bodied.

Some beers do age well. Unfortunately this bottle, for whatever reason, has not.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

It pours into a nice head and amber color. Medium carbonation. No significant aroma or flavor other than a tiny bit flowery. At room temp the carbonation is gone and smells like a pilsener Urquell. Tastes like an Urquell but not so dry. Drink it while is cold and forget about it.
