Belgian strong made in France, and they don´t have to be embarrassed,they probably have a much better water in the Savoie than in Belgium. Anyway this ale has many influences from the Abbey style but don´t try more than one if you are going down-hill the day after!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2003
The beer as it sets in my St. Bernardus glass is a scintillating golden amber color, the head miniscule and what is left after it evanesces leaves a patchy sheet of lace. The aroma of over ripe apples comes to mind along with a bit of malt, citrus fresh and clean. Start is sweet, malt laden, the top middling in its mouth feel with the finish biting in its acidity, the hops spicy in their presence. The aftertaste quite dry and long lasting with a trace of alcohol bitterness, quite a nice beer and a great change of pace from the normal French beers.

pilsnerrogge (2410) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2003
Beautiful bronze colour. Fruity and yeasty aroma with a touch of citrus. Full bodied and a bit sweet. Tastes like a basket of fruit; apricot, mango, melon...... No alcohol flavour whatsoever. Extremly smooth and drinkable.

Very nice flavor and texture. Smooth to drink and extremely nice in the mouth, but with complex body.

this beer looks like a miller light. However, and more importantly, its a very drinkable beer. Nice and yeasty aroma, real fresh. I hardly would believe the beer contains 8% abv, as its covered so well by the nice creamy taste and velvety soft mouthfeel. For a beer that looks so weak, it really was a pleasure to drink

creamy with a clove finish, and just looks awful. I like it but basically I’ve had it before, it’s nothing to write home about

omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2002
Golden coloured. Very aroamtic fruity nose. Full bodied and dryish with very complex flavours. Pleasant, bitter and flowery finish. An outstandingly flavourful ale!

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2002
clear pale orange colour, fine head and a nice lace, deep litchi aroma, cinnamon and perfumy, smooth, full and bitter, fruity finish with light notes of alcohol - well-balanced and original
