bertiebucket (10) - morecambe, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Bought at sainsbury’s , morecambe, served lightly chilled in duvel glass. Massive white head on top of hazy pale beer . Slightly herby citrus flavor, (not dissimilar to a saison) with a slightly bitter after taste.

Emek (126) - Wrocław, POLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Belgijski samograj, zawsze tak samo trafiony w punkt. Swietna prezencja, w aromacie rzeskosc, ktora rozwija sie w owocowo-kwasnym smaku. Bardzo dobre do gaszenia pragnienia w upaly.

ogniskowicz (466) - POLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Trudno cokolwiek tutaj odkrywczego napisać, klasyka absolutna, z którą każdy uznający się za miłośnika piwa powinien mieć styczność choć kilka razy. W zasadzie - wzorcowy belgian strong.

Floodom (36) - POLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Piwo barwy słomkowej, przejrzyste, obfita ładnie zdobiąca szkło piana. Aromat owocowy, bananowy. W smaku owocowe, wyczuwalny alkohol, lekko kwaśne. Wysokie wysycenie. Bardzo przyjemne zarówno na upalny letni dzień jak i zimny wieczór.

llucmaduell (55) - barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
A large beer; a must. A fantastic product, balanced, powerful and just. With a very reasonable price you can enjoy of a beer does not lie, does not take strange paths but expertly serves one of the best beers.

lello4ever (271) - ITALY - AUG 18, 2015
Si presenta di un colore giallo quasi paglierino, leggermente velata. Schiuma bianca pannosa e di buona persistenza. Aroma floreale, appena speziato. Perfetta al palato, con il malto ben accompagnato dall’amaro pungente del luppolo, evidente sul finale della bevuta. Grande equilibrio garantito anche dalla perfetta carbonazione, vivace ma non eccessiva. Corpo medio che invita alla bevuta, alcol abbastanza nascosto che non appesantisce. Una grande ale belga.

BobyFischer (171) - FRANCE - AUG 16, 2015
Robe très pâle et trouble.Mousse blanche et très fine qui colle délicatement. Nez houblonné, fleuri, amertume fine, fleurs comme la rose. Carbonation très fine, corps léger, houblons arômatiques (dry hop bien présent) et quelque chose comme du simcoe (arômes et goûts de savonnette, de fleurs mais c’est très bon et très subtil, pas trop prononcé). Equilibre dans la légèrereté.

kokkenrolv (73) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle, vinmonopolet. Subtle aroma of coriander, something floral, hints of dishwashing, white pepper. Pale, clear, nice white head. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter, hints of honey, some yeasty notes, marzipan, subtle fruit. Light body, lively carbonation. Fantastic beer, classic, dry.

Dorado pálido con opacidad, espuma densa y persistente, lúpulo cítrico, conmaltosidad baja. En paladar balance inicial malta-lúpulo con final lupulado cítrico con fruto seco. Amargor adecuado y amable, con cuerpo, buena carbonatación y tibieza alcohólica.
