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

argo0 (11915) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2009
75cl bottle, no date but I’ve had it for over 2 years. Gusher. Fleck-filled cloudy amber body with large beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, yeasty spicy, orange, candi sugar, light turpentine. Taste is sweet, orange, candi sugar, yeast, spice, some alcohol, light pear, honey. Smooth medium-full body, holds the alcohol fairly well.

Golden coloured beer, lovely smell: sweet, fruity and yeasty. Tastes the same: first fruity, then malty, then slightly bitter aftertaste. I like it!

Amber coloured beer with floks of yeast visible, a small white head and medium carbonation. A yeasty sweet and bit hoppy aroma mixed with some spices. Full sparkling palate bit creamy. Finish is hoppy bitter with an alcoholic dry ending.

A nice tasty Belgian, bottle from Premiere Gourmet. Light colour with thick head, and full mouthfeel. On the sweeter side, yet most drinkable.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2009
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick amber color and a roasted malty taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch. This beer smells light malty.

Explodes from the bottle. Pours a dull orange colour. Sweet candy aroma with a hint of malt. Massive carbonation in the mouth. Strong candy flavour dominates with some softer, fruity notes. A little warming alcohol in the finish.

zach8270 (3779) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2009
(bottle - 750 ml) Hazy orange color with a lot of carbonation and suspended sediment. Aroma is mild but spicy with some sweet malt and light hop hints. Flavor is spicy and strong at the beginning with lots of sweet and caramel malts, spices, and a lightly bitter finish. Very alcoholic all throughout.
