Pours slightly cloudy and bright yellow with with a lot of brut fizz that lingers. Mild aromas of grass, gym socks, fruitiness, hot concrete when the rain hits. The flavor reflect the aromas, but possibly even more mildly. Fruitiness is more up front, followed by fauna, and a friendly brut dryness. A very elegant beer.

750ml bottle into a champagne glass. 2015 vintage, so 6 years old.

Looking very good in the tall glass. Glassy apple juice colored body. Carbonation present every pour, fizzy and sparkling.

Very floral aroma, but pleasant not suffocating.

On tasting, floral, slightly fruity, a hint of spice, and quite drying.

Mouth above medium, finish is the only place abv is felt. Quite warming.

Overall, excellent dinner beer. Was a bit shocked by the abv, would have guessed half that from the taste. A lot of work goes into producing this beer, much appreciated by this palate.

750ml corked/caged bottle served in a slightly tulippy stemmed glass. Cuvee Prestige 2017.

Pours clear, very light copper, big head, TONS of carbonation, sustaining a large head and clearly visible from a distance. Smell is mostly funky / yeasty, maybe some grape must, maybe some peach.

Taste is in the same theme, but not the same balance. Definitely some funk, but a candy sweetness offsets it. Definitely some yeastiness, but twisted a little toward earthiness. I think the peach stands up and maybe is a little accentuated.

Mouthfeel is, of course, light, dry, and exceedingly effervescent. Overall...this is the only beer of the style that I've had so I cannot profess that it's great or terrible relative to the style, but it is a clean, interesting, and very tasty beer that is quite different than the many others I have tried.

Shared bottle at RBNAG 2011, as Deus Brut des Flandres Cuvée Prestige 2010. Clear and sparkling straw coloured beer. Dryish aroma, moderate but very pleasant farmhouse notes. Very dry and crisp flavour, no doubt a fine beer, but is it worth the high price?

This is my beer to celebrate the demise of 2020 and hope for a better 2021! I bought this at Susan’s Wine Shop in Santa Fe, NM.

The cork popped enthusiastically and the foam came forth! Poured into a tulip glass. Bright clear yellow color with luxurious white foamy head and excellent curtain lacing. Sweet champagne smell and taste. Candied lemon, vanilla, and cinnamon and other warm spices. Truly a treat. Cheers!

( Couldn’t get my mother in law to try it!)

2016 edition. Pours a straw colour with a nice sheen. Smells like faint banana and allspice, green apple peel, and un-ripened pears, and a touch of meadowsweet. Tastes very effervescent; champagne yeasts, pear, elderflower, woodbine nectar, and touches of allspice, nutmeg and Belgian yeasts. clean semi-dry finish.

Pours a cloudy golden color. Incredibly effervescent even after sitting for a while. Thick frothy white head collapses inward leaving a thin layer of foam fed by the constant rising bubbles from the bottom of the champagne glass. Given plenty of time to sit, the beer does clear up as the yeast particles sink to the bottom. Never completely clear, but certainly much clearer.

Aroma is interesting - it has light floral and fruity notes with a distinct spiciness to it. Some spicy esters come through especially as it warms.

Taste follows the nose with herbal and floral notes and a distinct spicy ester. Touch of mint. The interplay does have some lemon citrus notes that coupled with the spiciness comes across like lemon-pepper spice. Bitterness starts on the back end and continues into the finish.

Feel is light, bright and vivacious. Sprightly carbonation. Dry finish. Pretty much what you'd expect from the style.

Overall this is a really unique beer. Id need to have more traditional Belgian examples to really know how this hold up against other examples of the style. On its own merits, I thought the spicy esters were too prominent, and wanted a bit more balance overall. Still, it was a good beer and one I was glad to get the chance to try.

From the front label: "Cuvée Prestige 2010"
The bottle was chilled according to the pamphlet that was attached to the neck.

Appearance: The body is a light gold color which is moderately hazy. It has loads of carbonation bubbles. The head starts out very large and white but quickly fizzes out to a short cap on the surface.

Aroma: The beer has a light herbal aroma with just a touch of bubblegum. The longer the nose is spent near the glass the more it takes on this floral note. After a bit longer it even starts to take on some slightly fruity aromas with a nice caramel scent. It smells a lot better and has much more character as it sits in the glass a bit. I would recommend at least ten minutes for it to really open up.

Taste; Up front there is this sweet caramel flavor mixed with a touch of tea leaf. The flavor rolls off the tongue and fades to near nothing. The finish has this nice floral character with a touch of bitterness. Oddly, after sitting for a while there is this slight flavor of what kind-of tastes like lemon pepper.

Mouthfeel: It is heavily carbonated and it fizzes very lively across the palate. The beer starts with a semi-sweet character and lightens as the carbonation draws itself across the palate.

Overall: It's a very interesting beer. The aroma, flavor of the beer all started off feeling rather average but then the intricacies of its delicate nature started to show. In the aroma department it slowly builds a nice bouquet that becomes pleasant over time. The flavor of the beer starts out a bit simple and sweet but slowly begins to become more floral and a bit herbal. One of the strongest elements of the beer is its "Belgian yeast character" which seems to contribute a lot to its aroma and flavor. I would recommend this beer to anyone who really enjoys lighter Belgian beers and I would drink it again.
