Bottled. A golden yellow beer with an airy white head. aroma is malty, fruity and alcohol. Taste is fruity and spice, orange notes. warming alcohol in the end. A little unbalanced for me

Alone at home. Clear blond colored beer with medium white head and lots of carbonation. Herby hopped floral. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet spicy bitter.

Blonde en cuvée spéciale, d’un niveau abv de 9,4 %. Couleur blond doré moyen brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines partout, avec une fontaine centrale bien vive. Mousse banche à flocons moyens, puis nappage à 1 mm. Arômes de malt clair, bois blanc, pointe de cerises douces, pain blanc, pointe de bogues de noix. 1ère bouche soyeuse, entre amer et acide !!! Arrière-bouche plutôt longue, mais pas complexe, et amertume indéterminée. 2ème bouche peu convaincante, vague. Arrière-bouche avec quelques épices, mais pas du tout fines. 3ème avec un peu de girofle, mais peu harmonieuse. Arrière-bouche assez longue, avec des baies sûres. Longueur au goût très faible, qui descend pour devenir métallique, fade. Jambes lisses. Levure un peu fruitée, mais ligne très faible. Alcool fort, mais il suit l’ensemble sans même le regarder !! Alcool parfaitement inutile.... Finale nulle. CONCLUSION. Je sais maintenant pourquoi les oreilles du corsaire sont fumantes : il vient de se rendre compte qu’il va se trouver dans les basses cotes de chez Huyghe !!!

suurjuust (2236) - ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2015
Hazy pale golden beer, big white head with filmy retention. Metallic and sweet nose, some sour apple and wet hay notes. Flavor is grainy sour notes with apple notes, booze with a metallic edge, vague candi sugars. Boozy and sour apple finish, more metal.

budedou (662) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - NOV 6, 2015
Pours hazy orange with yeast sediments and a huge white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty and slight metallic. Even from the looks the carbonation is quite heavy. Fruity yeasty, sweet malty, light toasted. Vague metallic touch. Subdued bitterness mixed with rather fruity flavours into the finish.

Ulysse (389) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2015
Very sweet on the tongue. Bubbles. Has its own champagne of the pirates. Probably the right brew for a pirate who just wants to get drunk.

This is something like champagne mixed with a Pils loaded with alcohol. So from my POV, it’s not good.

Mousse qui retombe très vite. Très pétillante et trop sucré. Bière très basique. Le seul but de cette bière est le pourcentage d’alcool.

Quite blond with white head. Nose is a barrel lemonade, some summer alcoholic cocktail, wood, yeast. Taste is sweet and a bit sour. Palate is dominated by let say lemon filled by alcohol - simply like a South American beer with a great dosis of vodka or Carrabian rum. B@H
