Strong, spiced, top-fermented ale, bottle conditioned.
white, compact, fine and persistent head; pale straw yellow colour; fine perlage.
hints of citrus fruit, warm yellow flowers (dandelion, camomile), almond and peach in syrup.
an astringent citrussy sensation attacks the tip of the tongue, while any bitter sensation is released on the mid palate. Highly quaffable, typical Belgian watery ale.
Excellent with:
rich food but without greasy sauces, smoked or savoury dishes since the ale has little hoppiness.

750ml bottle - shared by Mirjukka and Janne - thanks!
Hazy, pale, brief head - fizzy but self supporting. Massive estery vapours, clearly alcoholic, but actual alcohol taste is hidden behind the banana. Slightly bready light grains, pretty yeasty, dry papery hop finish. Some zet too, perhaps orangy, but I only say that as curacao was already vocalised elsewhere round the table. A little raw. Finish quite fruity - fair bit of apple. Perhaps too alcoholic. With more yeast it doesn’t change too much except to become very cloudy.

Bottle at Taste Firenze. Dry, mineral nose with pears and apricots. Fruity flavor with stewed peaches and a dry finish. Tasty, but Atra was better.

Bottle shared by the Kernel crew - cheers guys! Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light palate, a little soft. Fine carbonation. A little brandy like alcohol but overall well hidden. Tiny bit of orange hop. Semi dry finish. Mild minerals.

Idiosynkrasie (6199) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2011
750ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with white head. Sweet and fruity, but a bit displeasing in a way. Nothing I’d need to have a second time.

Jade (433) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2011
No, no, no. NOT a belgian strong ale. Light on colour, light on head, light on aroma (except the funk). Not a great beer!

bottle. Hazy golden colour, large white head. Fruity nose. Full-bodied, syrupy malty base with hints of fruit (orange zest), slightly citrusy. Grassy hop flavours in the background.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2009
train station bottle rating. dense and cloudy dark honey colored body with a salt and pepper speckled tan head. bottle-conditioned, fine-bubbled carbonation. nose is powdery citrus, minerally silt/clay and oil-covered candy sugar along with some dried herb character. frothy and dense texture - chewy with an oily finish. zesty hops and syrupy sugar meld with an herbal spiced character (just yeast or added? not sure). weighty and dense malt, spice level is perfect for the density of this beer and the yeast is lovingly soft while still appearing zesty and spicy (lemon, anise, coriander). another inventive and creative italian take on a belgian-style. great stuff.
