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.

lello4ever (294) - ITALY - AUG 18, 2015
Si presenta di un colore giallo quasi paglierino, leggermente velata. Schiuma bianca pannosa e di buona persistenza. Aroma floreale, appena speziato. Perfetta al palato, con il malto ben accompagnato dall’amaro pungente del luppolo, evidente sul finale della bevuta. Grande equilibrio garantito anche dalla perfetta carbonazione, vivace ma non eccessiva. Corpo medio che invita alla bevuta, alcol abbastanza nascosto che non appesantisce. Una grande ale belga.

BobyFischer (176) - FRANCE - AUG 16, 2015
Robe très pâle et trouble.Mousse blanche et très fine qui colle délicatement. Nez houblonné, fleuri, amertume fine, fleurs comme la rose. Carbonation très fine, corps léger, houblons arômatiques (dry hop bien présent) et quelque chose comme du simcoe (arômes et goûts de savonnette, de fleurs mais c’est très bon et très subtil, pas trop prononcé). Equilibre dans la légèrereté.

Dorado pálido con opacidad, espuma densa y persistente, lúpulo cítrico, conmaltosidad baja. En paladar balance inicial malta-lúpulo con final lupulado cítrico con fruto seco. Amargor adecuado y amable, con cuerpo, buena carbonatación y tibieza alcohólica.

TorbenJensen (1289) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
This beer stands out very positively by a tall, beautiful and white foam. It has a highly fragrant fruit aromas that recurs in flavor. Similarly, the strong hop aroma and flavor, both reveal a robust and strong nature of the beer. The finish is dry, but even if this is a strong beer leaves the general appearance of a memory of a tasty and extremely refreshing beer.
