Bought by a stranger at the Thirsty Munk and shared with the bar--thanks again. Beautifully presented in champagne flutes, golden with tiny bubbles and light head. Floral spice aromas and flavors of anise, cloves, honey--well balanced and elegant. A memorable and impressive experience.

Pours a cloudy apple cider colour. Very fizzy. Amazing aromas. Floral, yeasty, citrus, dried spices.... very nice. Sweet and bready... some citrus with a slighty bitter soapy and citrus finish. Bubbly on the palate, yet surprisingly full bodied. Excellent.

75cl bottle, got it for my birthday.
Aroma is sweet, grain, a bit alcohol, orangezest, bread.
Clear champagnecoloured, loads of sparkling and with a lasting and lacing off-white head.
Very sweet taste, vinous, fruity, orangezest.
Fizzy mouthfeel and a light bitter finish.
It was ok, something newer for me.

The bottle presentation is beautiful. Pours a clear pale straw color with a white champagne-esque head that settles to larger bubbles. The nose is of light golden fruit with apple, pear, grape, slight citrus and bread. The taste starts with notes of fruity sweetness, spices, funk and yeast with hints of white grapes and pear. The finish is slightly phenolic with pleasant malty flavors in the background. The complexities are more pronounced the warmer it gets.

ero scettico prima di decidere di assaggiare questa birra,viste le premesse..fortunatamente l’ho bevuta allo zythos beer festival dove un bicchiere non costava molto..mi devo ricredere comunque,alla grande! birrificio boostels strapromosso,ma non ne avevo grossi dubbi viste le premesse (kwak e tripel karmeliet)..da questo momento in poi comincia il delirio allo zbf 2013 quindi i ricordi cominciano a vacillare..ricordo un aroma maltato ma molto molto delicato e particolare (non come una kolsch per intenderci)..gusto forte e alcolico,scalda la bocca immediatamente e prosegue con note fruttate,frizzanti e amarognole..e anche questo birrificio lo abbiamo archiviato! :D zbf 2013

750ml bottle shared with family on my birthday. Pours a lively light golden with a lasting white head. Beautiful aroma of tropical fruit, mint, herbs and caramel. Medium sweetness and light bitterness on tasting, with a nice mix of rhubarb and tropical fruits. Lively, with that sweet boozy and slightly metallic finish synonymous with Brouwerij Bosteels. Quite refreshing at the same time. Absolutely heavenly beer, a great one for a special occasion!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I’m a sucker for beers in wine bottles with French names and found this on the North American flatlands somewhere. The aroma is plenty of yeast and lots of sugars, cloying sweetness. Appearance is a clear heavily carbonated body and huge very white head without much density. Flavour is strong caramel and sugar tastes, very excessive, the attempt to get the high ABV showing through far too obviously. Way out of balance. Yucky aftertaste. This is a strong belgian ale way out of balance.

champagne like beer, even with bubbles like in champagne, beautiful in appearance when served in glass, quickly disappearing head, herbal aroma, light sweet in flavour and finish
