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

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

Mortlach (1101) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 30, 2012
13/02/2012 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Ambrata carica, lievemente torbida, schiuma biancastra con venature giallognole, abbastanza abbondante e persistente. Aroma intenso di frutti rossi, caramello, zucchero di canna, lieviti, spezie e alcol. In bocca è dolce, leggermente stucchevole fin da subito, non perfettamente bilanciata e con un finale non proprio pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Si lascia bere, ma non è niente di eccezionale.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 Lightly hazy, deep orange pour. Thick white head is creamy and steadfast. The aroma is that of an overattenuated Belgian beer, a standard offering, a bleak perspective in an already tired style. Notes of crystallized sugars precede super-sweet malts and an overdose quantity of candi sugars. Heapings of citrus follow, mainly orange and tart tangerine. Alcohol is modest for the strength, annoying anyhow. Mild hints of cereal grains and marshmallow round out the too-tired and standard nose. The flavor is mildly corny, followed by waves of awful sugar and cereal. It’s like liquified Frosted Flakes cereal. It’s also like they didn’t even try. Give me a break. This is a waste of money. Sure, it’s drinkable, but why bother. I can access these flavors that are desirable in a hundred other Belgian golden ales without the unwanted extras. The mouthfeel is sugary, cloyingly sticky and barely drinkable.

Bottle 330 ml Appearance: dark clear orange , with a two fingers of off-white head., with a good retention. Aroma: Grainy, a lot of caramelised malts, esters, confit fruit, with a bit of alcohol. Taste : sweet fruits (apricots) and very malty as well, still smooth drinkable for it ’s sweetness. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium to full body, good carbonation.

EddyBeer1 (1009) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2014
Ambrée légèrement voilée, effervescence moyenne, col beige moyen tombe assez vite. Principalement maltée, caramel léger, notes fruitées, un rien épicée, l’alcool se fait légèrement sentir. Un bon cru.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Pours a brown hued orange. Nose is kind of syrup like and sweet. Flavor is not very eventful. Nice smooth and even tones. The funk is there. The sugar is very slightly there. It’s decent...but...lacking. This is a Grand Cru? Standard on the mouth, and even a bit thin. This was nice to drink, but certainly nothing unusual or at the least interesting.

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.

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...
