3.85/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Best before end of 01/01/2009:

750 ml foil-wrapped cage-corked bottle, poured into a fluted glass.

Pours clouded with a light golden body and a fluffy white head that thins and stays, leaving plenty of lacing. Head and lacing saves the day here, as the body is not much to look at, though not a "turn off", particularly.

The smell is of lemon peel, some breadiness. Pleasant, different, aroma.

The taste is herbal/floral/lemony with grainy notes and yeast. More "beer" than "champagne" taste, for sure. There is a dry yeastiness to it. It finishes dry.

Well-carbonated, but not really effervescent.

Alcohol is reasonably well-covered for abv, though it does show some. A beer-drinkers replacement for champagne. Interesting style. I do prefer this to the Deus, which I thought less complex/more yeasty. A unique beer for a special occassion.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 750 mL bottle with foil and cage top into flute glass.
A: Pours a light lemon yellow with tons of carbonation producing a thick bubbly white head (about half beer, half head in the glass).
S: Strong alcohol (with an ABV of 11% this makes sense). Some mild crisp hops in the background.
T: Lemon citrus hops and alcohol...wish the ABV was better hidden. Some black pepper around the edges.
M: Light body and very effervescent from the carbonation...definitely champagne-like.
D: The high ABV (again, not well hidden) and tons of carbonation limit the drinkability on this one.

750ml
Gold Foil
Caged/Corked

Poured into a chalice a very nice cloudy golden pale yellow color, very nice carbonation, very nice two-finger plus creamy/foamy white head, with tons of nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty with some yeast, spices, nice notes of grapes, pineapple. The taste is very nice, malts/yeast, spices, grapes/pineapple. Medium body, the finish is slightly dry/bitter, the alcohol is hidden very well. Very drinkable, this is a nice one. Thanks Anthony.

Bottle form Canals in Hainsport, NJ.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick bubbly white head. Crisp fruit aroma with belgian yeast, spice and hops. Extremely quaffable considering the high ABV. Crisp fruit flavor of grape, apple and pear, champagne yeast with a nice creamy texture. Excellent!

Pours a layer of white head that hangs throughout the drink. Liquid is light straw colored. Smells of cheap candle wax. pear, wheat field. Aromas are mild overall. A bit of aromatic herbal like you'd find in a saison. Coriander, pineapple, tropical.

Tastes wet with strong fruit and mild phenols. Mild peppery edge. Fruit is tropical, oranges, apples. Drying biscuit malt. Md-light body, yet still hangs on the tongue. Nice.

(from notes taken early august 2008)

750ml green bottle with foil wrapped neck. an alleged "best by" date of 30-6-2008. cork has lettering of AJB7

poured into tulip

bright, pale golden straw color. slight haze. lovely fluffy head, immense in size, and that barely recedes. beautiful lacing.

slightly sulfurous, almost skunk-like whiffs upon pouring, but that soon disappears. gentle champagne fruitiness then takes over, with notes of white grapes and cider. gentle pale malt note and similarly gentle fruity esters and phenols.

flavor continues with fruity champagne grapes again. pears. spice. sweet toasted malts blend into mildly phenolic finish. grassy, almost noble hop, with gentle bitterness gliding into a semi-dry finish, plus more hint of fruitiness and trace of phenols.

not thin. smooth and actually almost syrupy! moderate carbonation gives a fluffy, full body.

this is pricey, but perhaps justifiable as a champagne alternative for special occasions. pairs well with seafood and lobster.

but beware of the DAMNED GREEN BOTTLES! with such a high price point, i would advise AGAINST getting one off the shelf, and only getting it directly from the case it's delivered in.

Pours a massive, Duvel-like meringue head. Intensely white, the foam is a good 3 inches tall and is a beauty. It fades, though, leaving sticky gobs of fluffy goodness on the sides. The beer is similiarly Duvel-ish, a hazy yellow-gold. Yum.

Tons of phenols fly from my goblet. Clove, cinnamon, yeasty funk, peach, sweet honeyed apples, champange yeast, complex, spicy and sweet. Sweeter than lots of beers in this style, it still manages a complex, inviting nose.

Taste is right up there -- this is a sweet, pale malt spicy brew with a big yeast wallop and a crisp, clean finish. Cloves and varied malts swirl on the palate. Finishes remarkably clean and sweet / dry. Exceptional.

M. Fine carbonation, medium-thin mouthfeel, slightly ciderish.

This is a good, if expensive, beer. Enjoy with sophisticated friends on a special occasion.

Pours a rich maroon opaque color with a nice sized fizzy head atop. Smell is dark caramel, and raisons. Taste is the same with burnt, tart and sweet raisons and dark caramel with an incredibly fizzy, bubbly and foamy mouthfeel that I tend to not like. Champaign like mouthfeel, in fact. Certainly isn't bad, but the mouthfeel really inhibits the enjoyability for me.

Large bottle, caged and corked, pours medium apricot, quite cloudy, under a nice looking off white head. Retention looks decent and the fades to a tiny bubble nice looking film and also plenty of intricate and sticky lace. Floral and fruity nose, with traces of yeast and lemony spice. Full flavor Belgian, the expected coriander, citrus, pepper, gin, and yeast show up in all their glory. Pleasingly dry, with tart and crisp hopping. Loads of lime, tonic, gin, pepper all follow through the center and towards the finish. Large and bold, go get some of this classy, and thoroughly enjoyable rejoice offering, Belgian lovers rejoice.

Golden in color, very effervesent. Huge white head that stuck to my glass.
dry, floral, yeasty aroma. Lots of citrus aromas. Superb soft mouthfeel. The dry bitterness hits immediatly and lingers far into the finish. Alcohol was very well hidden, but warming all the way through. A very unique beer.

A: Pours a light clear lemon color with a big white fluffy head.

T: For flavor some light lemonbread, fresh fruit (pears, apples), and a nice light fading lemon finish. Very crisp finish with sour lemons.

M: Champagne like carbonation provides a light mouthful with some fizziness and a slight alcohol detection.

D: very drinkable, smooth, and pleasant on the tongue. Alcohol is pretty well hidden for 11%. Overall a very refined Belgian that drinks like a champagne.

This one pours a pale lemon gold with a few microscopic particulates suspended in it. The billowing head is a cloudy white and it leaves some soapy lace.

Smells of freshly squeezed orange juice and sweet bread dough with a zesty sting of lemon rind and a playful booziness.

Tastes of light powdery biscuits and dehydrated peaches with a peppery yeast and lime rind. Finishes out with a dry, well blended sting. I don't know if I'm reading into this one but the dryness reminds me of champagne.

Feels quite light with a lively carbonation.

A tasty beer and a first of for the style for me.

I found this 2007 version on sale at Green's at an unbelievable price of $10 a bomber. I guess good things do come to those who wait (a year).

The cork was easily extracted, and as soon as it was freed, the beer started to foam upwards in the bottle. The process continued in the Duvel tulip glass, forming a big foamy head occupying half of the space. The beer itself looked cloudy, pale golden, and airy. The aroma was very yeasty and bready, and some floral smells lingered on. Tasted peppery, sweet, musty, and phenolic and semi dry. The alcohol was well hidden and I was surprised to glance up at the listing to see 11% put up there. Not as clean as I would have liked in the finish as some metallic bitterness lurked in there. Airy and creamy in the mouth. A bit too rich for my waller at the regular price, but the sale was sweet indeed.

Hugely hazy pastel lemon with Champagnesque carbonation. The polished ivory crown is large, whipped frothy and looks like it'll last well into next week. Equally as appealing is a circumferential sheet of barely broken lace. This is an impressive looking bottle (with the full, cap-and-cage, gold foil treatment) and is one of the most impressive looking beers that I've ever seen.

The nose is a dead ringer for a non-barnyard funky farmhouse ale. It's absolutely bursting with sweetened lemon and with a spicy-herbal-grassiness that has to be due to Saaz hops or something similar. I keep wanting to put my nose over the glass, but it's time to move on...

... to what turns out to be amazing beer. Like any well-crafted, high-ABV saison (sorry, but that's what it tastes like), Biere Brut is both powerful and delicate at the same time. The contrast between those two makes it incredibly interesting and decidedly delicious.

It tastes like nothing darker than pilsner malt and pale malt was used. The flavor profile is all top notes, but it's still as deep as a summer day is long. In case you're wondering why the bottle costs $24.99, my understanding is that the 'methode de champenoise', and whatever else it takes to brew this beauty, is extremely labor-intensive. Whether it's worth that much coin is another question.

Brut Reserve is much more hoppy-bitter than expected and is a better beer for it. Other than lemon, we have musky pear skins, an apple blossom perfuminess, ground clove and cardamom. I don't know if Belgian ale yeast was used, but it sure does taste like it.

There are few 11.0% ABV beers that bury their alcohol this completely. A hint on the finish and an esophageal warming on the way down are the only indications on the power lurking beneath the hood. In Champagne parlance, I'm not sure that it's quite dry enough to be considered brut. It's pretty close, though. Especially on the crisp, quenching finish.

The mouthfeel is as out-of-this-world as all the rest. It's incredibly expansive and has a whipped creaminess that has to be experienced to be believed. There's no doubt that a proper amount of carbonation is vitally important in beer of this style. Good thing these guys nailed it.

My first Brouwerij De Landsheer beer is a beauty. Biere Brut (Brut Reserve) is everything that I had hoped it would be and more. The price tag will probably keep me from buying it again, but I'm ecstatic that I threw caution to the wind and brought a bottle home. Tres magnifique!

Bottle: Poured a hazy deep golden ale with a small bubbly head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of light sweet malt notes with some weird ester or maybe it's the yeast but something is surely different. Taste is sweeter and lighter then expected with some sweet malt and light yeasty bready finish. Body was full with some low filtration and some great carbonation. Alcohol is not apparent which is quite surprising considering the 11% contained in this beer. I am glad I tried this but considering the price tag it is unlikely I will try this again.

Bottle dated 1/1/08 poured into a Malheur glass.

Pours a HUGE 2+ finger billowy/fluffy white head taht lasts forever. Tons of carbonation seen rising. Light golden color. Very pretty and interesting to look at.

Aroma is fruity, light hops, sweet malts. Some green apple.

Taste is sweet malts [a little too sweet], green apple, light hops.

Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and lightly cleansing. Medium body.

Overall, a very nice beer. Good for "special" occasions. Champagne-like. Very drinkable and has an undetectable abv [which is dangerous]. Very versatile with food. Highly recommend this one.

Had this one in the midst of many different beers and cheap sparkling american wines for to ring in the New Year. First of all, this bottle is amazing to look at. Very classy. The beer itself was poured into flutes and looked amazing as well--slightly hazy straw color with two fingers of white head that lasted the whole way down and left lots of lacing. Lots of bubbles in this one that stream up to support the elegant foam cap.

Smell and taste are an array of different belgian flavors. Its a little sweet, but with a dry finish. There is some spice in there and some floral hop notes. Very good. One of my friends (with whom i had split a bottle of Deus before) said that he got some of the minty/medicinal flavors that we both got from Deus, but much more subdued, in balance, and enjoyable.

I could drink this all night long if it was $5 a bottle, but it is not. Didn't really notice the alcohol at all in this one. The price puts it out of the range of a beer that i would have the pleasure of drinking regularly, but it was very nice to try it. Get a bottle and celebrate with some friends.

Pours a clouded straw with a big white head. Lots of lacing on the way down. Flavor is very champagne like and smooth. But there is also that level of Belgian ale that is oh-so-obvious. Lots of sugar. Good bit of what seems like hops. Feel has a lot of carbonation to it and it feels pretty soft on the mouth. Definitely drinkable, but more so a sipper. I have been keen on finding another good biere de champagne after trying Deus, and this is the first one that has made it worth the money. I kind of feel like this is Duvel on speed. That consistent and steady ride that doesn't really take you anywhere mind blowing, but it's still pretty damn good.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, highly effervescent, pale yellow body with a large, fizzy white head.

Smell: Pils malt with sweetish notes of flowers, lemon, peach, and spice with a subtle yeastiness.

Taste: Pils maltiness and a soft, juicy fruitiness with a candi sugar sweetness. Subtle doughy yeast. A pinch of peppery spiciness crosses the tongue. Very light floral hoppiness and a perky acidity on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Delicate, medium-thin body. Well carbonated.

Drinkability: A refined, elegant drink not sullied one single bit by the fact that is was served alongside pork rinds.

Michael Jackson Commemorative Edition, Sampled October 2007
Well despite the careful pour, my serving this at 50°F has caused this to overflow the top of my tulip glass. I couple quick slurps of apple tasting foam and I hope I am safe now. The beer is crowned by a seven-finger thick, light tan colored froth that is quite tightly beaded, though not quite creamy in texture. The beer starts out with overly active, madly boiling streams of carbonation coming up from the bottom of the glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear, bright gold color, which makes it quite easy to watch the streaming carbonation. The head produces an excitingly varied, never disappearing, pillowy surface as it slowly recedes, all the while leaving a thin layer of lacing patterns on the sides of the glass. Aromas of apple, lemon zest, lightly herbal notes, a peppery hop note, honey-like malt notes, a backbone of toasty grain notes (think soda crackers, fresh crushed pale malt, and perhaps a touch of biscuits).

Despite the Brut moniker, this is sweet flavored with notes of honey malt and a touch of green apple. The carbonation has died down enough at this point that it is a touch creamy feeling, though it still has a nice prickle of carbonation as it slides cross the tongue. The beer finishes with a light, yet sharp flavor of hops; lemon grass, touches of basil, a nice non-descript herbal note and a light bitterness. These notes never overcome the soft malt sweetness, but do tend to linger on in the long finish along with it. This has a very smooth finish to it & I definitely like how it sits on the palate. The beer certainly hides its alcohol well too as only a touch of warming alcohol character is noticeable. As the beer rests in my glass a bit, flavors of marshmallow, kiwi, pear, and green raisins become more noticeable.

As with most champagnoise style beers, there is a lot of sediment in the second pour of this beer (I guess wine grapes just don't have the same level of proteins that barley does, as I am sure this was bottled brilliantly clear and sediment free). The aroma of this beer just gets better and better, I don't think that there is anything in particular in the nose that wasn't there before, yet it still manages to pick up a level of complexity, yet still remain so smooth; I really just want to take a draught of the aroma. The flavor picks up some complexity, what I would describe as more bready, and flavor with the additional sediment, though I am having a hard time differentiating between the two pours. This is just dangerously drinkable; flavorful yet smooth; engaging, yet quaffable. Certainly a beer to be enjoyed. Even my second pour of this beer produces a still ridiculous, seven finger thick head. I really like the how the flavors of fruit, malt and Saaz hop interplay & meld into the smooth, yet still seemingly crisp, body and palate of this beer. In the end it is the fruit character that really stands out for me; the interplay of apple, pear & ripe, white wine grape notes just create such a crisp, inviting character to this beer.

Truly a beer that needs to be drunk in quantity to really enjoy; I would have written this off as a really good beer, but not great, if I had not had multiple glasses of this brew. I really can't ask any more of either the appearance (especially if I had poured it out all at once) or the palate of this beer; it really is just spot on for this brew.

Cloudy pale golden with extreme mousse-like head and streaming bubbles.

Smells of sweet spicy grain, like a mild Saison or spicy Pils.

Sweet heavy pilsner-like malt flavor with some candy sugar and spicy herbal hops that don't quite beat the lingering sweetness.

Awesome champagne-like mouthfeel with sweet and slightly bitter finish. This is good stuff, great aroma, but definately a special occasion bottle- mostly due to the extreme price.

Originally reviewed March 31, 2007. Pizza Port Belgian Beer Fest. Pour from a 750mL.Aroma finds itself as touching in slightly sickly malt and coarse cigarette ash. Cloudy deep yellow pour, with white rim. Flavor a rich, tawny creamed malt carrying the nicely belgian yeast notes, with high rich phenols but none of the harshness of chemical notes. Gently percolating in attenuated beauty. Aroma suffers but flavor and body are crisply done.

Pale straw color with a thin head. Sweet maly aroma that was oddly close to a macro lager smell. Light, sweet, sugary malt flavor not unlike plain sugar cookies. Very fine, sharp carbonation. Medium/light body with a sweet, almost adjunct like finish. Cost me $45 for a 750ml at a bar. I was in a good mood - just got a raise at work, otherwise this is totally not worth it.

Champagne styled bottle with the Michael Jackson commemorative selection 2006. Poured into a tulip it is a very loose, mountainous, rocky white head. Tons of carbonation very similair to a champagne (imagine that). Slight chill hazed golden body.

Plenty of wheat and grain in the taste quite dry. On the hotter side for my palate. Spiced and peppery towards the finish and lingering aftertaste is everlasting and warm. Loads of depth and character. To be perfectly honest this is so unique I can't draw any comparisons. Its not over the top crazy, but more or less on its own island. Spritzy carbonation is always there and as it warms there is a bit of a wine, vinous, edge to it.

Notes: Pretty good. I will have to venture into this style now that this has opened my mind. My biggest turn off was the grainy, wheat frontside. Biggest upside was its amazing depth and out of the box type brewing.
