COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

The aroma was fruity with a strong tropical fruit nature of namely pineapple. A Belgian yeast spice accompanied the fruity character along with a bit of pepper. The aroma also carried a malt sweetness. The beer poured into the chalice clear golden but laden with particulates. The head was low and white and short lived. The flavor was lightly sweet with a strong fruity presence of tropical fruits, once again pineapple and perhaps some mango. The flavor also had a nice Belgian yeast spice with some pepper. The finish was ultimately dry with lasting light spice into the aftertaste. The body was medium-full with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy texture on the palate. A nice beer, nothing too exciting, but a pleasant brew. 750 ml bottle.

In the bottle. Thanks to mdi for the beer! Pours a hazy yellow gold with a gargantuan white head that is hardly contained within the glass. Big cotton candy aroma! Straw-like flavors. Quite sweet- in fact, it is a honey sweetness that protrudes. I get strawberries out of this for sure. Oh, so very good.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2007
This pours a clear golden body with a lofty head that does a slow fade sans lacing. The aroma is honey sweet malt, yeasty, and has tart citrus and cherry scents. It has a sweet pale malt flavor tempered by grapefruit and a mild herbal bitterness. No signs of the alcohol, really, until the 750ml is thoroughly consumed.

Christian (11274) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2007
Yellow with floating particles. Big and bubbly white head. Grapefruit, wheat and yeast in the aroma. Dry and yeasty with a lemon juice-like acidity. Which is not the same as pleasant tartness.

Bottle @ tasting at my place.
Bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Pours a pale yellow golden with a big, big frothy and foamy qhite head. Great lacing. Aroma has wheat, yeast, weak hops, coriander, oranges. Foamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very tripel-like, dry, slightly fruity sourish with oranges and some exotic fruits. Yeast is apparent in the finish as well. Okay, but really nothing special.

Wow. This was tasty. A massive caramel bomb on the palate and aroma. A little spice and faintly sweet. Yeast bite on the finish. Very good.

Hazy golden color; thin creamy head. Some aroma of Belgian yeast, beans. Sweetish flavor, some malt. Not very exciting, but pleasant.
