2.85/5 rDev -25.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Another gift from Mauerhan. And a big fat bomber of 9% at that. Awesome!
Pours a pale clear gold with white bubbly head. Several small streams of bubbles float up.
Smell is, uh, like malts and stuff. Or rather just some old malt. I'm not very excited to be honest. Maybe some pears.
Taste is marginal at best. I'll have to look into this because I'm wondering if this was the intention. Bland, dry, malty miss. Maybe a small flavor of orange marmalade.
Nice enough carbonation, dry sticky tail like a Vegas hooker. Wish I was a little more refined, but I am what I am: a work in progress bitches. That's from the 9%.
Overall: still learning to appreciate the style

4.48/5 rDev +17%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: Pours dark gold in color. Streams of carbonation rush to the top of the glass. Inch of frothy white head that dissipates quickly but thin layer of head is retained for the length of the drink. Clear, no sediment. Looks delectable!
Smell: Sweet malts, caramelly. Hard to distinguish hop aroma. Distinctly belgian yeast; slightly funky, sweet and strong.
Taste: Sweet, slightly fruity (green apples?). Funky/musty taste characteristic of belgian yeast shines through but balanced well by the sweetness. Dangerously smooth for it’s strength.
Mouthfeel: Complex flavors lend to a full body, but the malts maintain lightness. Smooth start to finish. Medium carbonation. Alcohol taste lingers on the top of the mouth.
Overall: I’ve enjoyed this beer more times than I can count, on tap or bottled. It’s always a favorite, never disappointed. Accurate as a Belgian golden, but never boring for the palate!
