COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

bottle obtained in trade with Mrmanning. Pours a yellow colour with a long lasting white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is of spices and fruit. Flavour is sweet with some yeast. I did not notice the alcohol at all which could lead to problems as this beer went down very fast. Thanks Len for the chance to try this one.

Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a large lasting creamy white head (looks like itís topped with whipped cream). Nice lacing. Complex aroma of yeast, fruit, pepper, more spices, malt and light hops. Flavour is yeasty, fruity, spicy and slightly hoppy. Hides the alcohol quite well. Medium bodied. Pretty good version of the style and easy to drink.

Panzerfaust (785) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 20, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2006 Pours a hazy golden beer with a big, white, rocky and long lasting head that leaves a giant and gorgeous lacing and a half finger film of foam. Complex and clean aroma, malty and yeasty with fruity touches like green apples, pears and mellon and hints of spices, cinnamon and honey. There are also fresh hoppy notes of herbs and a fine touch of alcohol. Flavor is sweet and fruity, complemented by a slightly acid note. It has some lemon, apples and a little of bready notes. Itís as complex as the flavor and shows even a mild alcoholic finish. Well-rounded, wonderfully crisp, dry and delicious. Itís not an agressive beer. A real pleasure to drink. I was a bit alcoholized when I sipped this, so I would love to taste it again sober.

Pours like liquid gold with a big white head. Aroma is fruity and floral. Flavor follows the nose with complex fruity flavors. Mouthfeel is almost like champagne. Very good stuff.

dj (567) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 Bottle, 330ml, bottle conditioned. A good long-lasting white head. Good fruity aromas. Light slightly cloudy yellow appearance. Fantastic flavour of banana and toffee. A little too fizzy for my liking, but thatís the only negative I can find. One of my favourite beers.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Pours golden with an effervescent body and a huge foamy head. Aroma of cereal malt, herbal noble hops, toasted cracker malts, and light wildflower honey. Taste has notes of honey, biscuit malt, and mild fruity esters. Quite dry with a refined herbal hoppiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly sticky with lively carbonation. Delicate and deliciously dry!

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
pours a claer light yellow with thick foamy head and has lots of carbon bubbles which leaves a nice lacing. also has a very hoppy smell with a bitter taste which leaves you with a sweet palate with a hints of pear taste.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2006
Bottled, 33cl. Clear, sparkling, pale yellow beer with a dense white head. The aroma is mostly yeasty, but it has some green apples, candisugar and spices too. The flavor is quite complex, with a finish beeing alcohol-dominated, but not totally overpowering the fruity citricness and the bitterness and the dry feeling that comes at the very end of the flavor-profile. Well, back to the initial flavor. It too has alcohol, along with spices, candisugar, prunes and a green apple-sourness. A very quaffable beer, concerning the pronounced alcohol. And Iím feeling dizzy now...(060314)

UPDATED: APR 13, 2007 The best head on a beer Iíve seen. Golden color with great flavor and aftertaste. One of my favorites.
