Cybion (61) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours deep, clear amber with a quickly dissipating soapy tan head. Lot of biscuit-y malts on the nose with a small amount of honey and citrus. Quite a creamy, buttery taste that’s somewhat akin to Hoegaarden with the malts, again with shortbread biscuits being the protagonists here. Notes of creamy mashed potatoes for some reason and some rather herbal hops too. Medium bitterness on the back end and a pair amount of carbonation, perhaps a little too much, but that doesn’t take a lot away for me.

Hacía tiempo que no me tomaba una cervecita en casa. Soy más de calle. Sigo con mi "Ciclo de cervezas belgas" aunque no lo hago a propósito. Esta cerveza estoy acostumbrado a tomarla de barril en el pub y me parece una estupenda cerveza para pasar la noche. Ahora, con una de botellín, no solo me reafirmo si no que incluso me parece mejor, que no suele ser lo habitual. Uno de sus puntos fuertes es su puesta en escena. Es de las que cae bien nada más te la presentan. No te impacta pero te seduce con eso color rojizo y halo espumoso a la vez que despide ese típico aroma belga pero sin arañar. Ahí marca un punto de inflexión. Al probarla caen un poco las expectativas pero no decepciona. De hecho, es de esas que el cuerpo te pide repetir. Y repetimos, por supuesto.

Case (239) - GERMANY - MAY 20, 2014
Pours dark red brown with huge head. Aroma is fruity and caramely. Taste is slightly sweet, raisins, apricots, slightly roasty, nuts, ends on a bitter hoppy note. Very refreshing, excellent dubbel!

aletcm (116) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 2, 2014
Cor marrom escuro avermelhado. Espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de caramelo e casca de laranja. Sabor de toffe, laranja, frutas vermelhas, torrado ao fundo. Boa carbonatação, médio amargor e adstringente no final. Sensação refrescante com final seco e persistente. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Koning_Daan (117) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with a medium off-white head. Taste is roasted malts, caramel and a hint of coffee. Nicely balanced beer with a delicate and refined taste, nothing too pronounced, and a lingering aftertaste.
