The ArtigianALE is a fruity dry strong bitter, characterized by floral aromas and an intense bronze color. The SuperanAle is its hoppier sister and may be lurking behind the bar.

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks Dror. Slightly hazy red with a white head. Floral and citric hoppy aroma with some biscuity malt. Sweetish malty flavor, somewhat bready and biscuity, with piney and grapefruity hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Decent.

draft@Chez Moeder Lambic: red/bronze/amber colour with orange head, smells like malt & grapefruit soap hops, taste is slightly watery with sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, berries, fruit & grapefruit soap hops which mainly come forward in the finish, overall a bit too watery the combination of the two sides doesn’t really work, instead of combining, you get neither one really & it gets a bit bland, so-so

Copenhagen beer festival. Hazy brown beer. Softish palate. Sweetish malt and a very well balanced fruity hop. Well behaved hoppy beer.

23rd October 2010
Cloudy brown beer. Small white head. Slightly odd nose of straw and unsweet chocolate. Dry palate. Lightly spicy and with a dash of unsweet chocolate. Seamlessly blended with some fruit and bitter orange hop. Really well joined up tasty beer.

Draft @ Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese, Caserta - Italy). Hazy and intense bronze-amber color, foam not so big but persistent lacing. Hoppy and floral aroma, some peaches and dried fruits. Medium body, fruity with a hint of caramel, soft carbonation that gives a drinkable soul. Astringent fresh grapefruit finish. Not bad indeed, maybe deserves a heavier malt character.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2011
draft @ Moeder Lambic. cuivre, col épais blanc. Arôme de malt cara et grillé, fruité et houblonné allant sur le citron le tout mélangé avec une bonne senteur de fruit; raisin. Un palais siropé un peu sucré venant du côté fruit noirs que je retrouve durant cette dégustation. Un houblon qui donne une légère amertume allant sur le citron, touche d’épice avec un fini qui reste tout de même centré sur la malt qui là est sec et vient balancer le fleuri du houblon.

Cask@BQ, Milan. Hazy reddish amber colour with a smallish off white head. Sweet malts and orchard fruits predominated in the nose. Flavour had similar elements, with some hoppage that started to build steadily towards the finish. Not bad, if a little on the drab side of the tracks.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 11, 2011
Copper colour, with a white head, this is my first bi-du experience. It has a long finish. Pine, malt and caramel flavour are mixed and well balanced. Very nice. I like it so much. It is similar to an IPA.

Wolfbass (1025) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 2, 2011
Bel colore ramato con buon cappello di schiuma beige, cremosa e persistente. Aroma fruttato delicato. Il corpo è medio, agrumato, che lascia il palato con un finale secco e decisamente amaro molto lungo.
