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.

Excellent Beer, it has a pronounced alchool taste, but that may be itís only downside, the first impression is excellent, the yeasty taste is just right, itís wonderfull dark blond coller, with a magnificent white foam gives this beer a formidable appearance. very good, but have other challengers of the same style.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2009 white label:. 33 cl; bb 10/2004. Three-inch bleached white head that turned out looking like the Grand Canyon. Pale straw. Perfumey, Saaz and flowery Styrians along with some earthy, doughy yeast. Up front was full and spritzy followed by a wallop of flowery hops. Finish is warming and very, very clean and dry. Stellar as an aperitif.

A special beer. A small firm that makes one of the best beer. It is very iomportant to taste this beer with patience. How less beer in your glass, the better you will find this devilish beer. SANT…

Flowery aroma, spicy, malty, taste gets better as it warms. [I gave some to my son, but forgot to warn him not to drink it out of the bottle.] Good Belgian lace (duh). Not my favorite style, but expertly made and I will have more. Should go well with poultry.

My first introduction to the style. Big head and complex flavor really took me by suprise. I shall have to investigate this style further, but this beer will not disappoint!

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - DEC 3, 2001
Bright golden color with a head that lasts longer than the beer. Mild hop bitterness with sweet malty taste. The high carbonation and alcohol bite balances the sweetness of beer.

Excellent. Sort of a hefeweizen sweet-spicy character. Very carbonated, but it is bottle-conditioned, which would do that.
