VonClausewitz (132) - Italy, ITALY - AUG 23, 2012
3.18!!! Ogni tanto queste valutazioni mi fanno dubitare della serietà di questo sito.... Ambrata, opalescente con una schiuma pannosa e persistente. Naso non intensissimo, ma persistente e complesso, con note di scorza d’arancia, miele, coriandolo e crostata agli agrumi. Bocca dolce, abbastanza calda con un corpo medio....la dolcezza persiste in bocca, appena bilanciata da una leggera luppolatura.....comunque goduriosa.....a meno che non siate IBU dipendenti!

The unlabelled bottle comes wrapped in paper. Pours copper coloured, and sports a creamy, dense head. The aroma is very fruity and somewhat flowery. It is full bodied and dominated by a sweet mango flavour and candyish tofee. It has rich, thick mouthfeel and a lingering sweet mango finish. It is an excellent ale when sampled in small amounts, although a full bottle gets almost cloying.

Dorqui (2094) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 7, 2005
Great looks. Yellow dark color, light amber and hazy. Much loads and elegant. Dense and friable foam, very lively. Determined and warm scent. Notes of caramel, hay, grass and malt on the end. Elevated alcoholic perception, much powerful and solid. Light smoothly with an increasing bitter in the end.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Amber, excellent thick lasting rocky white head and good condition. Initial honeyed aroma gives way to good grainy malt and flowery perfume notes. Full bodied in the mouth with a pleasant malty sweetness laced with honey and a subtle salty spiciness developing. Finish is sweet and sticky and smooth, with definite honey notes and a hint of bitterness. Seemed to me like a nice mix of Belgian triple and pale German bock.

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2009
33cl bottle from Délices et Caprices. I thought Bkink: bloesem was a nice example of honey beer, this one is just even better. pours hazy golden, thick white head. aroma is floral with a thick honey nose that is just sweet and enjoyable. taste, honey, and a lot of honey adding to a nice sweet palate that becomes almost sticky. smooth, borderline mead like with some floral hops. I am getting a lot of natural touch here that just give the palate the impression the honey was just collected.

Accusata perchè troppo dolce? Non fa assolutamente niente. Certo se vi piacciono SOLO le IPA o le birre che usano la lingua come sacco per pugili girate a largo. Se invece vi piace variare risulterà una buona birra, mai stucchevole. Molto forte il gusto di miele, alla fine lo zucchero di canna uscira fuori gia bello e vestito. Floreale. Con i dessert intavola dialoghi di buon gusto. A mio parere molto sottovalutata su questo sito.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2001
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2004 Amber ale. Wonderful malt aroma. Sweet, a bit spicy. It smoothly turns to bitter with a beautiful aromatic final. Very good example of Belgian strong ale.

Keeper (252) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 28, 2005
Beer aromatized to the flowers alzalea, much complex and a lot structured. A very successful experiment.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2006 Bottled. Clear orange/amber coloured, thick head. Aroma of honey, malts, some fruit and flowers. Sweet, but not annoyingly sweet flavour. I like this one. Thanks to my colleague for sharing this on her last day at work.
