mathieuc (1391) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a clear and sparkling golden and is topped by a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of peppery alcohol, fruits and spices. Tripel-ish, really. Taste is of fruits, spices, alcohol with some carbonic bite. Body is light and carbonation way too high, giving a watery feel to it that is a bit unsettling. All the uncontrolled alcohol dries the mouth quite aggressively. Just OK.

Bottiglia, scadenza prossima, quindi non il massimo della freschezza. Ed infatti al naso arriva scialbo un aroma che sa distintamente di mele e banane, con un po’ di malto ed un pizzico di liquore, alcool insomma. Visivamente l’arancio della birra è piacevole, arancio torbido. Spero che in bocca rispecchi le caratteristiche dell’aspetto. Birra con schiuma bella fine che tende, almeno a me, a svanire abbastanza in fretta. Schiuma saponosa, lascia dei bei cerchi nel bicchiere. Sulla lingua avverto un bel sapore di frutta, quella annusata, molto dolce bilanciata da un funalino abboccato niente. Male. Mi piace sulla lingua. Anche al palato non riserva cattive impressioni. La birra non è freschissima ma sento un sapore che inizia dolce e finisce caldo ed abboccato. Carbonatazione media, come il corpo. Sicuramente non è oleosa come speravo, ma è ben nascosto l’alcool, ed è calda. Il finale per me è al malto, con il luppolo vagamente presente. Buonissima birra, direi da meditazione. Dio salvi i belgi...

tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy bright golden with a frothy white head and little lacing. Aroma of honeyed malt, but also pils, light spices and candi sugar. Taste is fruity with a light sweetness, malt, light spices, floral notes and alcohol notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Light alcohol finish. Subpar Belgian Ale. Alcohol isn’t well integrated. Lack of complexity and balance. Not awful, but far from the average.

TtV (88) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Yellow nearly orange colour with huge white top that fades quickly. Aroma has some yeast, but is not too complex. Taste has fruits and a sharp bitterness in the aftertaste that I rather like.

SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
33 cl. À consommer de préférence avant fin: 01/2017. Blonde belge au col tenace qui présente des arômes et des saveurs de malts pils accompagnés par un houblon au bouquet fleuri et aux accents de fruits acidulés. En bouche, un corps qui fait le style. Un arrière-goût légèrement épicé avec une petite chaleur d’alcool. Pas mauvaise du tout. Le style de bière que j’aurais davantage appréciée en 1990.
