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

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Dancing Came. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Light tea colour, clear, no head. Raspberry, a little sour aroma, then sugar candy. Sweet taste, a little honey, candy too, nice. Light body, ok fizz, long finish. Sticky, but nonetheless I like it.

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2007
Old gold, clear; disappearing fine white head. Cookie malt, a bit liqueurish but not very alcoholic in the nose; yeast aroma. Soft-sweet taste, long-lasting sweetness, part bready, part sugar, part honey-ish - and a strange yeast flavour. Very nice soft spring water quality, very remarkable. Some fermentation off-product is toddling around, and it disturbs the balance a bit. Still - beer that has its merits.

ABUSEDGOAT (2321) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Hazy orange, large head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is sugary with notes of oranges, yeast, grass, some basement. Medium bodied, quite sweet, a tinge of alcohol in the finish. Decent I guess.
