COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

It is one of the two main beers from De Dolle Brouwers available throughout the year. Aging time is limited due to the fact that hop bitterness declines with age.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Hazy golden color with thick, creamy head and thick lacing. Gigantic yeast aroma with bananas, lemons, orange, taste is similar with sweet and sour tangerine, nutty malt, a bit spicy. Extremely carbonated but I don’t have a problem with that.

Theydon_Bois (9149) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at Staminee De Garre, Brugge, 17/10/14. Lightly hazed golden with a big old off white head that retains well. Nose is yeast esters, citric rind, earthy hop, herbal tones, straw, lemon peel, spice. Taste comprises earthy notes, lemon rind, faint metallic leanings, nettles. Medium bodied, fine carbonation with a little spritz, hint of booze in the close. Ok Belgo but doesn’t do a whole lot for me.

ForlornHope (69) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a rich golden colour with a massive white head. Aroma is of earthy, peppery hop and rich grain. Taste is firmly bitter with a good, balancing background of mellow sweetness. Rich on the palate, well carbonated, the finish is dry and bitter. A truly great beer.

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a Trappist chalice. A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange color forming a big bubbled white head. Good retention and a small layer the never goes on the top. Some lacings left S: Very fruity and super-spicy in the nose. Notes of orange, grapefruit, honey and vanilla. Tons of grapes. Delicious flowery hops. Sweet malts and Belgian yeasts backbone T: Pretty much as the nose. Strong character. Very malty. Slightly sweet upfront followed by spicy notes, orange zest, honey, vanilla. In overall a dry and bitter taste M: Medium to heavy body. Medium carbonation. Strong bite of hops bitterness as aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Something between a Strong Pale Ale and a Belgian IPA. Reminded me Duvel, but a super-spiced version of. Absolutely great Belgian beer [ BA Review @ 10/6/2012 ]

Mainuh_man (182) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy blonde with a huge, rocky white head that lingers for a long time. Aromas are not all that pleasant: dust/minerals, almost a vomity smell, cooked vegetables, woody. Very mild sweetness with some hints of cereal grain, but then quickly goes to herby hop flavor that gets a bit ascerbic towards the middle-end. Finishes with a mellow herby hop bitterness and some alcohol. Medium-light body with a thin mouthfeel and acttive carbonation. Overall, not the most pleasant beer. Aromas are strange, and hop flavors are very present, and emphasizing aspects of herby, hop flavors that I don’t particularly like.

Bottle. Hazy amber golden body with a big white head. Fruity caramel aroma with heavy spicy yeast notes, raisins, tea leaves. Sweet caramel taste, bread, apricot, lightly boozy, quite a malty finish, with a sticky thick body. Herbs and spices in aftertaste together with malt.
