lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Poured 12/2009 The body is a lightly hazy copper in color and upon even a gentle pour grows an enormous, billowing white head that leaves a thick sheet of lace on the glass. Yeasty fruitiness in the nose, with apples, muscat grapes and ripe pear interspersed with a peppery spice. The first taste reveals three competing major flavors: bitter, boozy and fruity. These major themes blend for various combinations throughout the glass of beer. Bright fruit (apples, pears, etc), herbal and citrusy hops, sweet rich malt and some understated alcohol flavors with a bit of warming in the mouth. Medium bodied with a finish that’s more bitter than sweet. Is this the hoppiest beer in Belgium (as they claim)? No way. I like Belgian IPAs and Urthel Hop It and Houblon Chouffe are hoppier in the same style and, off the top of my head, Westvleteren 6 is a hoppier golden ale. But Gaspar is still a pretty tasty beer.

kajser27 (398) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 6, 2015
Orange colored, quite cloudy and yeast, strong off white to beige head. A bloody volcano of a gusher. There’s more on the ceiling and around the kitchen than in the glass...Aroma of some malt, overripe fruits, yeast, phenolic-peppery. Taste is moderate sweet malt, some caramel, lots of fruits, orange, peppery-yeast finish, low+ sourness, strong bitterness and a dry bitter finish. Medium bodied, strong carbonation.

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 9, 2015
Uncommon aroma mixing Belgian yeast with lemon, tea. Earl Grey. Tasty, but a bit amateurish feel. Don’t mind, just is. Quite a unique brew! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
