Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass, obtained in a trade with Duffman. Thanks Tony! Pours clear honey-gold, 1-finger thick white head, very spotty lacing. Nose is pineapple, apple cider, light vinegar, some leather, very green apple-ish. Flavours are moderately spicy, nice spun sugar/honey note, that fades to more green apple and candy. Unremarkable.

Bottle. Pours gold with a rocky white head that collapses quickly. Lemon and spice aroma. Taste of light malt, is lemon on toast a thing?, there’s some quite nice Belgian yeastiness but hidden in the background. Alcohol and spice to finish. Gets a touch lemon washing up liquid in the end.

bonkiedeaap (493) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is (deep) golden colored and has a large and long staying white head. The aroma is fruity with citrus notes and spicy with coriander notes. A hint of alcohol is noticable. The taste is full bodied with fruit and malt notes. A little alcohol is noticable but not disturbing. The finish is dry and with a spicy bitterness.

PlutonowyMan (216) - POLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Kolor: z?oty z pomara?czowymi refleksami, lekko przymglony. Piana bia?a, zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzyków, w konsystencji kremowa, sporych rozmiarów, niestety niezbyt d?ugo pozostaje na powierzchni piwa. Aromat: dro?d?owy, winny, delikatnie kwiatowy, nieco kwaskowy. W smaku bardzo wyra?nie wyczuwalne bia?e winogrona, dro?d?e, ponownie delikatna nuta kwiatowa i charakterystyczna belgijsko??. Ka?dy ?yk kojarzy si? z winem, mo?e nawet szampanem. Goryczki w?a?ciwie brak, wysycenie wysokie charakterystyczne dla win musujacych. Alkohol cho? mi?o rozgrzewa prze?yk, jest idealnie schowany.

KW92 (740) - WARSAW, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, trwała.
AROMAT: Mało intensywny. Owocowy. Dojrzałe jabłko. Dzikość belgijskich drożdży.
SMAK: Słodowy. Owocowy posmak. Końcówka alkoholowa - przyjemna, rozgrzewające.
OGÓLNIE: Brakuje intensywności. Jak na piwo 9 procentowe, to powinno ono "atakować" różnymi aromatami, a wy tym przypadku tak nie jest.

jamaty (1544) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Ambar clara, algo turbia y muy burbujeante. 1-2 dos de espuma poco densa. En boca es muy efervescente. Excesivamente. El resto es malta, mezcla de dulce y amargo y algún tono herbal. Final seco y amargo. Decepcionante.
