a - poured a two-fingers thick bubbly and light tan head into a willi becher that settled to a thin ring. this was almost a gusher due to bottle-conditioning. the body was a bright amber color.
s - yeasty, floral hops, some fruitiness.
t - floral hops, bready, green apples give it a hint of tartness.
m - bubbly and coating.
o - this bottle is approximately a 2011.

P: Murky copper body with floating specks. Looks like a swamp bog. A bountiful display of dense cream colored pillow top head. Great retention leaving behind rocky cliff ledges and a smooth, melted icecream like, sea of beauty.

S: Sweet prunes, toasted caramel malt, soapy grains, musty fabric covered furniture, wood rot and moss. Crystallized sugar and tannins. Aroma is really malt forward with subtle musty notes.

T/M: Taste follows the nose and introduces cherry alcohol, grapes, and strong brewed tea. Medium creamy body with delicate carbonation.

O: Super malted and nice sweet palate. I would like to age this and see where it goes. I would have liked to have more funk and musty notes but overall it a well done beer.

A-

22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazed orangeade, clumpy froth, dense, nice lacing.

Rich yeasty grainy aroma with light skinned fruits and a touch of flora.

Taste delivers what the nose knew. Delicious fairly traditional Bière De Garde. Not overly sweet, touch of bitter touch of dry, pleasantly fading aftertaste. Medium bodied lively mouthfeel.
cheers

Poured this 22 oz. brown bottle into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. No date. The body was rich golden colored with a modest head. The second pour was more opaque.

The smell was 7-Up and apple juice.

The taste was tangy and yeasty. Fruit, crisp apples. Biscuits and maybe nut bread. Salty. Interesting beer, lots of flavor going on here.

The mouthfeel was maybe a bit undercarbonated for the style. There was a light scrubbing zestiness and amedium bodied heft.
