This is something that has been in the cellar for a while so this seemed like a good time. Interesting multi tone colored body with little head and plenty of sediment. Nose is musty and spicy with plenty of funk. Nice hit of yeast in an otherwise mellow and relaxed palate. Really solid bread and butter note, with yeast and clove in the aftertaste. I like the relaxed, low carb texture that doesn't betray much alcohol flavor but it isn't really accurate to style. Tasty little relic though, with aged complexity.

Cursed 22oz format bottle poured into 12oz goblet. Poured a hazy bright gold color, with just the thinnest cap of white head that had no retention or lacing.

The aroma was right where I like it; lots of yeast spice, some solid, but subtle grains, and that "something" that makes me like the Belgian styles so much.

The flavor, however, didn't quite match up. The yeasty spice was there, and some soft grains, but the overall package wasn't quite what it might have been. Maybe it sat too long, which would be my fault.

The body was semi-full and smooth, and had a nicely semi-dry finish.

Drinkability was great, Iwouldn't mind having another couple a 22's of this. Overall, a very nice brew, and one I suspect would have been even more impressive if I had gotten to it sooner.

Found this on the shelves of my local liquor store after having aged a bit over three years. Couldn't resist the temptation. The beer came out nice and bubbly, and hazy, pale golden body looked right at home in a Duvel tulip, The head was two fingers thick, and had a dense consistency. The smell of the beer was sweet, giving off banana, bubblegum, and red delicious apple aromas. The taste was much blander than expected, perhaps due to the age. The sweetness was indistinct with a tinge of vinousness, and there was no hop presence. The body also felt very thin, and experience lacked much complexity. Glad that this was a cheap thrill.

Aged 2 years. Tannish light yellow color with lots lasting white head. A lot of Belgium yeast and some banana. Slight sweet tangy very slight banana with that good Belgium yeast. Smooth medium body with light carbonation. Pretty damn good.

Sea-foam head over pale yellow, straw colored pour. Slightly hazy, more soif you the swirl & pour. Were told this style ages well, so we braved buying a beer bottled in March '14 for Dec'15. It seems so, as the taste was clean and still a complex mix of fruit, spice and chablis wine. Light carbonation and a dry finish. We're now out hunting for the 21st edition.

Pours a straw color with half a finger of white head. Little lacing down the sides. Nose is Belgian yeast, cut grass, coriander, grape, some citrus. Taste is quite a bit of citrus and Belgian yeast on the front and finishes relatively dry. Feel is crisp with moderate-heavy carbonation. Overall, a nice Belgian pale.
