À servir doucement car elle mousse vite et tien assait bien Elle est de couleur dorée et la mousse est bien blanche (comme une pils) au nez on va sortir des notes d'alcool et de grain germer En bouche elle est assez douce et on va sentir des notes d'alcool Ce n'est pas vraiment une bière de dégustation...

mikeyo1 (259) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow with swimming yeast particles. Lasting, medium white head. Sweet aroma of honey infused oath cakes, caramel, nuts. Orange, sour lemon and spices in the background. Sweet phenolic taste with oaths, pears, toffee, caramel, oranges, pepper, yeast and vanilla. Some earth and nuts in the finish along with a low bitterness and a rather sticky alcohol note that makes the aftertaste unbalanced. All together the flavor combinations are odd, but interesting.

Il tipo di birra che mi soddisfa. Bello l’aroma, con il lievito che sale subito al naso e incontra la mela. Esteticamente la birra risulta biondo acceso, con uno splendido cappello di schiuma compatta e fine, senza risultare disomogenea o sgranata. Buona anche il sapore complessivo, anche se alla lingua sembra scialba. Non la birra migliore di questo mondo, ma sicuramente una buonissima compagna di bevute con il sapore del lievito a farla da padrone, e quel sentore amaro che pulisce tutto. In lontananza sin sente anche la banana. La bocca rimane buonissima dopo la bevuta

Een goed en lekker biertje met een rijke smaak. Niet het beste dat er is maar zeker ook geen tegenvaller

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Strong ale in existence since 1991. Off-white, not too stable head, colour pure amber, misty. Aroma as well as taste orangey fruity, caramelly malty, a bit nutty, honey and pepper; yeasty middle, finish warmly alcohol, fortunately not too astringent. One of the better Huyghe products, but I’ve never been a devoted fan of this brewery.

Icedwarf (394) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en licht zuur, citrus, echter vrij vlak van smaak. Blijft gemiddeld lang hangen. Niet echt bijzonder.

Bleke goudskleur, mooie witte schuimkraag. Aroma van citrus, fris. Smaakt bijna als pils, niet erg lekker.

Cervesa un pel alcohòlica de gust, dolça i maltosa. Cerveza un pelo alcohólica de sabor, dulce y maltosa.

Renobob (784) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Plutôt déçu de cette bière. L’alcool passe au-dessus de tout le reste. (Et le graphisme est vraiment très très moche...). Vous pouvez passer votre chemin.

Brandman (2114) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Clear golden body, white head. Aroma has yeast, perfume, spices and bit alcohol. Flavour is sweetish with spices and alcohol warmth. Might be bit overrated after large amount of bulk lagers
