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.

jamaty (1239) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Extraordinariamente pálida. Muy espumosa, cuatro o cinco dedos, con espuma que coge forma como en las buenas pilsener. Algo turbia. Inofensiva de aspecto. aroma frutal muy agradable. Y lo mejor, en boca, sorprende la carbonatación que ayuda a llevar a lengua y paladar un extraodinario y complejo sabor que llena completamente (cítricos, malta,.. ) Excelente desde el principio hasta el final donde aparece un delicioso amargor que perdura, y un regusto de bebida alcohólica de categoría (tiene 8,5 muy escondidos) pidiendo el siguiente trago. Grande

Une biére forte mais douce, un gout d’alcool bien dosé et un gout de grain agréable. Ce que j’aime, c’est sa couleur, un jaune doux comme les blés.

Flaska från SB. Ljust gul med fluffigt vitt skum. Doft av citrus och jäst. Syrlig och lite stickig kolsyra. Torr med en del smak av jäst.

Schiuma corposa e persistente, fresca con marcata nota amara. Bevuta sfortunatamente non nel suo classico bicchiere a tulipano

Ysok02 (369) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2015
Belle robe dorée, et mousse idéale. Nez sur les agrumes, le houblon, le citron vert, Bouche à l’attaque tout en fruit et en souplesse, de la rondeur, de la fraîcheur et une finale sur le zeste de citron qui la rend très digeste et traitre sur son degré d’alcool. Un grand classique de la bière belge mais bien équilibrée.

guil0000 (303) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Pours a clear yellow color with a pretty large white head. Lots of carbonation on the look. Nose of banana some lemon, belgian yeast, and a bit of spices. Body is medium, a bit oily on the miuth with some definite lemon tartness and some hoppyness in the end. Also masks the alcool very well. Very good

Wischylini (172) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2015
Pours straw yellow with a decent head. The aroma is mostly alcohol and corn, and there are some floral notes hidden behind the booze-flavour as well. The taste is mild like a pale lager, with low sweetness and bitterness. The mouthfeel is light like a pale lager, thin and way too fizzy, and the aftertaste is reminiscent of the scent of acetone while the alcohol and esters leave a lingering burning sensation. tl;dr: tastes like a Bud Lite with vodka in it. Absolute bollocks.

Pours beautiful golden with great head. Strong nose, a bit like like cream corn. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation. Upfront spicy flavours followed by pleasant bitterness. Great beer

La più classica delle strong ale belga, ottima birra che risulta essere un pò frizzate, nonostante la gradazione alcolica si beve molto bene. Corposa e molto piacevole da bere.
