    I must say that I should probably give this another try, because I am under the impression that the bottle I had was a bit skunked. That being said, I can see why Lambic beers are brewed with fruit. Because I am not so sure this Gueuze style is where it's at. The combination of bitterness, tartness and skunk spoiled this experience for me. But like I said, I would be willing to give it a second try.

    Aromas of lemon or lemon zest are most noticeable on the schnoz. Rock solid white head with a fizzy yellow hue is present. On the buds, nothing special. Citrus like, and floral with yeast like notes. Reminded me of Duvel only not a ballsy. Not familiar until now, but I can't help but wonder if I saw this brand in one of the late Mike Jackson's Belgian books. Time to consult the research department.

    Highly tart brew from our friends at Van Honsebrouck. Tart yet with the same characteristics of a Belgian Sour. Tastes like dried citrus with a soapy texture on the buds. Gives off an aged persona, like it's been sitting in wood barrels for some time. Solid head retention from the bottle pour that melts quickly into a thin lacing. Juicy finish. Not a bad catch. And one of the nice Belgian brews I received for playing Santa for a bunch of wee folk.

    Perhaps I should rename this new discovery Trignac Kasteel Tripel. At any rate, this was a new discovery at a Pre-Christmas Christmas party where the gracious host gave me a bottle of this in appreciation for my playing Santa for the little people! I was most grateful, as Trignac XII has the usual characteristics of a solid Belgian Tripel, (malty, perfumy, heavy on the yeast and floral flavors), BUT with a slightly dry oaky finish (hence the aging). Man, this beer is some kind of strong. If you are lucky enough to find it, try it. But with a glass of water on stand by, as well!

    Godiva Chocolate! That's the only thing I can compare this beer to. It's basically liquid Godiva Chocolate. With a smoky sort of coffee like quality to it. Pours a thick dark brown to black with good staying power for the sudsy crown. This one gets poured into a snifter and should be accompanied by a good cigar! And will help get you through winter's bitter chill.
