OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, - JAN 8, 2006
Couleur dorée aux reflets orange pale, apparence semi translucide. Énorme mousse blanche tacheté de nature écumeuse. Arômes de métal, de levure, de foin et de verdure rappelant le houblonnage à froid. Saveurs de malt grillé, biscuité, et de pain sous une légère touche épicée (anis). Amertume modérée en finale. Cet embouteillage correspond définitivement à la nouvelle version décrite par Joris (Belgian ale). Bouteille 33 cl, T’Kroegske, Izegem, Décembre 2005.

Moravius (275) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2013
Flasche (33 cl). - Goldbraun, reichlich beigefarbener Schaum. Antrunk karamelmalzig: Keks, Brotkruste, deutlich karamelsüß; zurückhaltende obergärige Fruchtnoten, mit ganz leichter pikanter Säure abgeschmeckt. In der Mitte etwas Gemüseartiges, das aber den guten Eindruck nicht nachhaltig stört. Im Abgang pfefferminzartig kühle Hopfenherbe. - Sehr angenehmer Belgier, der mich entfernt an ein fränkisches Landbier erinnert.

Ambrée claire, effervescence moyenne, col fin. Caramel dominant avec notes de raisin, quasi pas d’amertume et un rien de métal.

Russo (1632) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 24, 2013
Clear amber with a very nice white head that keeps a nice and last lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and hints of fruits and alcohol. Flavor is the same with a medium body and low carbonation, sweet alcohol finish.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a white head. The aroma and flavor are full of wheat and toffee notes, with the flavor being very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

bartlebier (1161) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
33cl Contreras family tasting. - Cultured Speciale belge, alive with hard working yeast. Caramel malts, good body, subservient earthy hops. Less easy to session than Palm or De Koninck, therefore with more to chew on and quite filling. One more convincing character concoction from Contreras.

thirdeye11 (5390) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
(33cl bottle best by 1-12-12 thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber, no real bubbles. Nose of caramel, raw grain, raisin, floral, and honey. Taste of light alcohol, honey, caramel, watery grain, unbalanced and hot in the finish, under carbonated as well.

Bottle from Beer Mania. Hazy golden body with medium head. Nose is fruity, yeasty caramel, slight sour notes. Taste is also fruits, plenty, some spices and some sour. Warms in the finish. Pretty good.

Smakerna ligger kvar länge på tungan, lagom syrlig och fyllig med mycket smak. Gott.
