Bottle at Sir Williams ljubljana . My 200th Belgian rating. Glad I got to try this. I was just in Belgium and didn’t recall seeing it anywhere but Slovenia is close to Italy so I guess that is how they (Sir Williams ) got it. Pretty standard swert yeast Belgian elements to this.

Bawelt (102) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2015
Vu le titrage d’alcool et sa tête bien blonde, on tombe finalement sur une bière assez corpulente mais pas aussi épicée que sa grande soeur bleue ! Très agréable et aromatique (en termes de puissance plutôt qu’en variété), un bon substitut à la bleue quand le thermomètre monte.
