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

Bottle 75cl. Light amber and a bit foggy due to fine yeast particles. Malty aroma and taste. The taste also reveals some alcohol. Nice balance between bitter- and sweetness.

Taster at Mondial de la biere Montréal 2010. The color is goldenwith a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet. The taste is of malt,caramel,sweet berries and some hops. Very pleasant in the mouth not much after taste.

Bottle sample. Clear amber with a nice white head. Fruity nose (grapes) with some yeast. Sweet flavor of muscat, malts and low bitterness. Medium bodied and lively, so so.

0,33l fles meegebracht op aa uitje 2014. Amberkleurig troebel bier met een fijne witte schuimkraag. Geur zoetzuur, ruikt naar marmalade en iets prikkelend. Smaak is zoet, met een zuurtje vol met alkoholwarmte sinaasappelschillen uitstekende body al is de smaak niet helemaal niet mijn ding

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Thanks SoLan. Pours a warm orange color. Aroma reminds a bit of orange marmelade, bubble gum and some tart green apple. Flavor is slightly spicy and doughy, seems a bit flabby.

mutz (489) - NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Donkergeel/amber,veel koolzuur. Ruikt metaalachtig na koud inschenken, later ook moutig en wat gedroogd fruitig. Smaakt vrij zoet met wat lichtzure tonen, moutig en een beetje dun mondgevoel. Niet zo geweldig.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2013
Ambrata con molta schiuma che scompare riscaldandosi. Aroma fruttato (mela, appena versata, poi uva bianca ed infine emerge la banana) alcolico, e malto. Ingresso in bocca carbonato, dolce, di nuovo la fruttatura la fa da padrona con le stesse note riscontrate nell’aroma. Il tutto è riscaldato dall’alcol che di sicuro non fa la figura del timido in questa birra. Finale migliorabile con un pò di maturazione probabilmente. Senza pretese.

Une bière « grand cru » fait toujours plaisir à voir et bien sûr à déguster... Bon niveau abv de 9 %. Couleur ambrée claire. Texture comportant un léger voile de levure. Bulles par dizaines en colonne au centre. Mousse beige crémeuse qui nappe le breuvage. Arômes de malt caramel, houblon fleuri, prune blanche, pain gris, pelure de poire. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec un beau complexe malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche pleine, savoureuse avec un peu de cannelle. 2ème avec de belles nuances sur plusieurs malts. Arrière-bouche complexe. 3ème d’une grande ampleur : malt, miel, fleur des bois, épice muscadée. Arrière-bouche longue, harmonieuse. La longueur propose un grand ensemble malté, de très haut niveau. Superbe. La levure est douce, belle, mielleuse. L’alcool fait un magnifique travail de soutien. La finale est avec des accents d’épices dans un accord malt/houblon superbe. Conclusion : un très grand œuvre, un chef d’oeuvre. Une bière vraiment de 1er cru, ou de 1er brassin … si on préfère...
