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

Mortlach (962) - 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.

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.

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.

Balazs (786) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2010
This beer pours with a hazy amber color with plenty of white head that doesn’t go away completely. Citrus, spices, orange peel and a slight hint of vanilla in the aroma. Lively carbonation, malty taste with a minor hoppy aftertaste. Alcohol blends nicely, gives a medium warming effect. Nice one overall.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2007
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.

rikstar (686) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2014
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

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.
