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 poured in a Duvel glassBeautiful golden color with a huge rocky white head that almost never dissappears and that leaves a nice and thick lacing and film. It smells of dough, yeast and green apple notes with some spicy and alcohol hints. The flavor is simmilar to the smell though some caramel hints appear in the back. its carbonation is lively and its body is light to medium, really nice.

Bottled version poured into Duvel glass. Clear golden color with an enormous and rocky white head. Very attractive. Apple juice and spices in the aroma. Apple and banana apparent in the flavor with a spiced bread finish. Extremely lively carbonation tickles the palate. One of those anytime beers that never dissapoints.

Dark yellow colored, big lasting white head. Lively carbonation, medium hazyness in appearance. Fruity, hopped, spicy aroma with mild alcohol and licorice. Medium to full bodied. Crispy palate with medium carbonation, flavor has licorice, spices and fruits. Aftertaste lasts with medium alcohol, spices and some dryness. Finely balanced brew!

After reading some of the comments, I have come to the conclusion that the bottle I tryed had gone bad. There is no other explanation. The only aroma was of apples and cinnamon. The appearance was ok, I have seen much better ie Chimay white. The flavor was of watered down apple juice with carbonation. Palate? Ha Ha thats just funny.

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.

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.

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.
