UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Quelle belle bouteille sérigraphié. Bouteille à consommer de préférence avant la fin 2005. Couleur ambrée, faible mousse blanche concassée adhérant partiellement au verre. Semble toujours en bon état à en juger par les arômes qui ne témoignent pas des quelques années d’age du liquide. Fruité et épicé, style cumin, en arôme. En bouche, flaveurs légèrement cartonnées et oxydées témoignent finalement de l’âge de cet échantillon. Le fruité et la verdure des houblons est aussi moins présent comparativement à une version fraîche. Le seigle apporte enfin une touche épicée très intéressante et se mélange très bien au reste des flaveurs. Un réchauffant passage ensoleillé en provenance du passé. Bouteille, Charlie’s Street Liquor, Boston, Juin 2005

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Bottle - sampled from goldtwins bottle, which by it’s expiration date on its side, looks like it is designed to outlast most household pets. Cloudy hazy orange pour. Spicy lemon aroma and very light malts, with a touch of sour. Light malt and light fruit flavors, lemony, and some spice. Oxidation a little evident. A bit acidic, kinda tough to drink a whole lot a once for me.

Dark golden in color with a white head. The aroma of soft-white flowers is the best part of the beer. The flavor is soft at the beginning, the body is absent, and then a lingering of gentle bitterness does not welcome you back for another taste.

Ottima blond ale profumata e leggermente fruttata al naso ma anche al gusto. Meno dolce e corposa rispetto alla cugina La chouffe. Note più speziate e erbacee che la rendono forse più beverina. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Smagt hos J & C. Tak Mads. Korn, karamal, citron, rødlig, tæt lang skum, lidt sød og lidt sur, let, vandede, blød, speciel og god.

I was fortunate enough to have one of these in Antwerp. It was quite nice. Hazy golden with a long lasting white head. Sweet with a spicy hop aroma quality that was very surprising. Medium-full bodied. Spicy taste that lingers for a minute and then is gone.

bit to lean for a chouffe beer

The aroma is fresh, grassy, and spicy. The color is a clear amber and it has a beutiful white head. The flavor is sweet, malty, and spicy. It ends on a dry grassy and hoppy note. The body is somewhat thin - must be because of the low ABV by Belgian standards
