I love it! Very fruity like a champagne. Dry but with some perception of sweetness, probably from the alcohol. Really packs a punch!

Long last white head upon a straw yellow liquid. Effervescent on the tongue with banana & clove flavour. Rightly a Belgium classic. Rated by BrewTom

Bottle. Pours a light gold. Nice peppery aroma. Good yeast flavour balanced by the peppery notes. Doesn’t taste like 8.5%

Idiosynkrasie (4006) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2014
180ml bottle [petite contribution de bartlebière - Merci beaucoup !]. Clear golden colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweetish bready-grainy, spicy yeasty aroma with a peppery touch, hints of mild mustard. Taste is dry, minimally tart, grainy, herbal, peppery yeasty spicy, some mustard, a lemon juice touch; creamy texture.

Bosskie (435) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Light hay coloured beer, transparent with lots of bubbles and a huge foamy head. Hoppy citric, white pepper, coriander and subtle leather resin. Hints of sweetness, cherries, which contrasts nicely with the sourness. Bitter sour taste with a contrasting but subtle sweetness. Deliciously refreshing with a bitter flowery resin finish. Hint of wood and alcohol.

Slightly cloudy, very low hops light maltiness, smooth and lighter, better with time ...
