    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall Pilsener glass. The abv is listed on the back label (5.5%) but there is no freshness date. Appearance: It has an extremely clear and light yellow gold color with tons of bubbly carbonation. From the pour I got a tall white foamy head. This head is light, fluffy and slowly settles down to a light wispy thin covering. On the way down the glass it leaves some spotty lacing. Smell: The nose is modest and offers mellow notes of biscuity pale malt with a nice spicy/floral hop backing. Taste/Palate: It has a light snappy flavor. Its pale bready maltiness is balanced by spicy floral hops that add pleasant bitterness and a very slight sourness. The finish is dry and crisp on a light to moderate palate. Notes: Overall it’s a very good easy drinking beer with excellent balance.

    Rochefort 6 is lovely nectar that that pours dark brown with amber hues with a modest off white head. The aroma is fruity and woody with a hint of alcohol esters. The flavor is sweet and malty with woody notes and fruits like raisons, white grapes, prune and dried cherries popping in and out. It has a medium body and lively carbonation. The texture is smooth and coats the tongue. I really enjoyed this outstanding trappistes beer.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 6oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a nice description of the beer but no freshness date or abv. Appearance: There is a deep copper brown body with dark amber highlights and a light haze. Up on top it has a two finger thick foam head that slowly fades to a thin light beige covering. This covering hangs on well and makes lots a spotty lacing. Smell: I get a heavy and sweet malt with equal amounts of citrus hops. Notes of booze covered raisins with canned mandarin oranges and lemon zest mingle over a bed of grain. Taste/Palate: There is lots of lemon and lemon zest with orange like hop notes coming through rich sweet bready and grain flavored maltiness. Its abv is noticeable and warming. The finish has more herbal/leafy hop notes pushing in with a solid bitterness slowly fading from the tongue. It texture has a slightly slick feel with light carbonation. Notes: This beer came to play and it brought lots of nice hops along for the fun.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a "Best Before" date. Appearance: It has tarnished golden color with a cloudy complexion. On top I got a two finger tall, light fluffy head. This head slowly settles to a wispy thin layer with a clingy ring at the edge of the glass. This leaves some lace rings at the top of the glass and a few spots on the way down. Smell: I get a very inviting nose full of sweet malts spiced with coriander, citrus orange peel and spicy herbal/floral hops. Taste: It starts with a touch of spice and a touch of wheat malt. Bready malt and yeast notes move in with some honey like sweetness and a touch of bitter orange peel. This then leads into a mild herbal/spicy hop finish mixed with balanced malt sweetness. On the palate it has a medium to full smooth mouth feel with soft carbonation. Notes: Overall Barbar (honey ale) is a very tasty and complex ale. It is definitely worth a try.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a snifter. Appearance: It pours a very dark brown color that has coppery highlights. The body is nearly opaque and it forms a big tan foamy head that has very good retention. It also makes nice lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma has sweet, fruity and spicy character with just a hint of hops. Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor has a wonderful natural sweetness from the honey and malted barley. Dark sweet fruit notes of raisins, figs and plums mix with coriander, bitter orange peel and a touch of earthy yeast. Hop flavor is very mild and adds just a hint of bitterness. The alcohol adds a nice warming quality and it finishes slightly dry. Its palate is medium to full bodied with a smooth creamy texture that is tempered by its lively carbonation. Notes: This is another great Belgian treat.

    Presentation: It was poured from a green 1 pint 9.4oz bottle into a tulip glass. The abv is listed at 9% on the label and there is a nice description on the back. Appearance: It has a tall three finger thick head. This pillowy off white and long lasting head is sticky and leaves lace rings on the glass with each sip. Under the head I see a hazy golden liquid full of yeast sediment. Smell: I get floral hops with some fruity esters and funky Belgian yeast on top of pale malt sweetness. It is a funky hop delight! Taste/Palate: There is a pale malt base with funky yeast and plenty of floral hops with a touch of citrus hops as well. The floral hop flavor and bitterness slowly fades off the tongue in the finish. Lots of soft Champagne like carbonation gives this beer a lively texture in a firm medium body. Notes: Everything is in good balance with an excellent hop and funky character.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a nice disruption of the beer but no freshness date. Appearance: The body has a deep orange amber color with a slight haze and is topped off with two fingers of creamy off white foam. This head settles down to a thin cap that makes some nice lacing on the glass. Smell: This one is full of big citrus, floral and pine hop notes with just a little sweet malt underneath. Taste/palate: Just like the nose its flavor is full of wonderful citrus, grapefruit, pine and topical fruit notes. A light base of bready malt seeks in here and there with a slight caramel sweetness. The hops run from the fount to the finish and bring plenty of hop bitterness that slowly fades off the tongue. The body has a medium feel with soft carbonation. Notes: The hops are the real show here. This Pale Ale brings more hop character than most IPA’s and with a modest 4.85v you going to want to drink more than a few of these.
