corkyrory66 (524) - BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2014
Bière spéciale des 125 ans de la brasserie en 75 cl mais à capsule simple. J’ai dégusté la version 2013 qui titre elle à 9 % abv. Malt d’orge et maïs dans la composition. Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout vives. Mousse crémeuse fine épaisse. Arômes de très beau houblon, malt, pain bis, miel blanc. 1ère bouche souple sur la malt et le maïs, mêlé d’épices. Arrière-bouche ample et longue. 2ème avec un mixte de malt. Arrière-bouche sur des fruits confits. 3ème où les fruits se mêlent au malt. Arrière-bouche plutôt épicée. La longueur donne un ensemble un peu plus étoffé. On trouve aussi des herbes et du bois. Mélange parfois un peu hétérogène, mais qui a un certain charme. La levure est fine, délicate, très belle veine. L’alcool fait part d’une progression intéressante, il soutient l’ensemble. La finale développe davantage les épices que le reste. CONCLUSION : une bière qui développe beaucoup de qualités mais sous des angles parfois trop originaux pour être appréciée à une très haute valeur. Une bière de commémoration, sans vraies ambitions brassicoles.

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2014
75cl bottle. Appears hazy to clear orange with a thick head. Aroma is spicy, bittersweet honey and orange peels. Lacks a bit in aftertaste. Something hoppy in it, nothing special. Just decent.

ippopotamo36 (120) - - APR 27, 2014
In Leuven at the ZBF. Pours yellow, little hazy. Nose of pine resin, sourness in yeast notes. Highly carbonated, a bitter final and a little disappointing in the mouth. Ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
