Kruidig en aroma van gist, zoals veel Belgische tripels. Medium body en co2. Mistig en goudkleurig. Flinke, vlokkige schuimkraag zakt snel in naar niks. Bitter, medium zoet.

Alengrin (1023) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
The last beer Achilles made before it became a beer company. Irregular, off-white, quite stable head, colour of ’old gold’ with tiny yeast particles floating around, fully clouded after adding the deposit, nice sparkling. Aroma of apricot, strawberry, orange, cookies, grass and a hint of tonic water. Fresh fruity onset, citrussy, medium carbonation, mineral-like, lean and supple mouthfeel, pale and light caramel malts, firm aromatic and herbal hoppiness in the finish without becoming really bitter, but refined and delicate. Biggest downside: alcohol is noticeable, which shouldn’t be the case in an ale just over 6% ABV.

Een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak, maar dit was echt niet mijn ding.

Bière blonde spéciale de la sorcière Emie (heks .. Emie) de 6,2 % abv. Donc pas du tout une ale... Elle révèle bien sa nature par l’usage de fleurs et épices des bois, récoltée au clair de lune... Couleur dorée soutenue et brillante. Clarté limpide. Bulles fines en colonnes. Mousse blanche qui nappe à flocons fins. Arômes de houblon fleuri, agrumes magnifiques, fleurs blanches, pain gris. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur un houblon très fin, une amertume superbe avec du malt blanc. Arrière-bouche très complexe. 2ème bouche sur un superbe ensemble malt/houblon et des fleurs fines. 3ème sur du malt et des épices. Arrière-bouche assez pleine. La longueur développe encore l’ampleur, et les saveurs se fondent. Elle atteint un équilibre complet malt/houblon. La levure est lisse et complexe, belle ligne. L’alcool est parfait pour ce genre de spéciale très fine. La finale est une sorte d’alchimie. CONCLUSION : une bière spéciale digne de grands éloges, bien que très modeste en apparence. Elle développe toute sa finesse dans une longueur d’un grand savoir-faire. Il est vrai qu’Emie est une sorcière expérimentée...

markschiedon (195) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
A spicy, hoppy, sweetish aroma. Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. The clear, dark golden beer has a large soapy white head. The taste is easier than you would think after the heavy aroma. Spice in the taste but a bit watery. High carbonation.

6/IV/14 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ Akke’s place, Ronde van Vlaanderen marathon - BB: 25/X/14 (2014-344)

Clear golden blond beer, huge off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very spicy, quite some orange peel, bit sweet, honey, floral and grassy notes, some hay, fruity touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: malty touch, some citrus, bit of alcohol, sourish, floral touch, spicy, coriander. Aftertaste: orange peel, spicy, coriander, bit floral, some alcohol, bit of a metallic bitterness. Way better than expected!

rikstar (721) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
0,33l fles. Donker goudblond met een een slinkende witte kraag. Geur van aroma hop en iets kruidigs. Smaak is bitterzoet, body valt wat tegen wel een aangename nasmaak met wat gist. Redelijk veel co2. Komt toch eat tekort om echt te kunnen overtuigen.

Countbeer (4375) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized sticky vast fluffy creamy white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow to lightly orange colored beer. Aroma reminds me a bit of a fresh barley wine, hops, hop fruits and hop flowers, some creamy and sweeter malts, some soap, some floral tones and some crispy fruity yeast tones. Flavours of hop flowers, some hop fruit, hop herbs, yeasty herbs, herbs, malts, bitters, light yeast and alcohol spices, some cream, fruit and porridge. Aftertaste is malty, bitter, herbal, spicy, fruity and hoppy. Low to medium carbo, creamy lightly blown mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture. Nice beer. Didn’t expect this!
