Bičre que ratebeer nous classe en simple belgian ale, mais le brasseur la donne comme une bitter, avec un slogan adapté : « bitter is better » … Mon exemplaire est ŕ date en janvier 15 et titre ŕ 6 % abv. Couleur doré pâle brillant, avec un peu de levure. Bulles fines en colonnes rectilignes, vives, joli. Mousse blanche trčs épaisse avec texture en śuf battu en neige au-dessus. Arômes de houblon aromatique, fleur de haie, zeste d’orange, pamplemousse rose. 1čre bouche structurée ŕ la superbe entame houblon et agrumes. Arričre-bouche fraîche, fruitée, parfaitement équilibrée. 2čme sur un magnifique ensemble houblon/malt. Arričre-bouche assez levurée, superbe. 3čme bouche subtile, fine, complexe. Arričre-bouche trčs délicate. La longueur développe beaucoup de suavité. Les jambes sont bien marquées. La levure est fine, épicée, poivrée. Superbe veine. L’alcool est tout ŕ fait adéquat au genre. La finale est limpide. CONCLUSION : une bičre extręmement clean, qui développe son sujet proprement, sans esbrouffe, mais avec une efficacité sans pareille...

adster (475) - HUNGARY - OCT 9, 2014
Pöffeszkedő habot gerjeszt, bár ami azt illeti, a tulipán-pohár ebben hathatós segítségére van. Tripeles kinézet, sápadt mézszín, IPA-szerű illatok. Komlós aromafelhők támadnak, kandiscukros lepelbe burkolóznak a gyantás, marcipánnal színezett fanyar gyümölcsök illatai. Nem feltétlenül erre lehetett számítani, bár a címkén játékos figyelmeztetés jelzi a keserűség jelenlétét a főzetben. Az bizony ott is van, ugyanis ízében tántoríthatatlanul továbbviszi a komlós, tartalmasan kesernyés jellegzetességeket, az élénk és közepesen malátás keretben vadul rajzolódik ki az india pale ale-szülők gyermeke. Számomra legalábbis inkább ez, mint belga ale, de nyilván ahogy vesszük... Azért mind a két stílusból kiveszi a részét, így valóban tekinthetünk rá úgy, mint egy vastag kontúrokkal komlózott, gabonás-élesztős tartalommal bőkezűen megtöltött világos belga sörkülönlegességre.

brnandersen (2240) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Lovely hazy deep golden colour with a huge, fluffy white head, that fades to a fat cap. Fruity aroma with yeasts, herbal hops, grasses, sweet, exotic fruits, a herbal sweetness showing as honey. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter-fruity with spices and sweet grasses. Very nice Belgian, reminds me of a Duvel in some flavour components.

serjaymz (97) - Istanbul, TURKEY - SEP 16, 2014
İstanbul'da şişeden.. Bulanık sarı-portakal bir renk ve dolgun kremamsı bembeyaz bir köpük ile bardakta duruş şık.. Çok gazlı değil, orta gövdeli. Koku şerbetçiotlu, narenciye, limoni, tatlı.. Tadım damakta vurucu, tatlı meyve, narenciye ile birlikte limoni tatlar hissediliyor, şerbetçiotu ve hafif acılık ile kompleksleşiyor ve damakta kalıcı.. Kompleks ama dengeli, yoğun ama rahat içimli.. Harika..
