Pours golden yellow with thick frothy head. Malt, yeast, and a slight hop aroma. Yeast and malt flavor with hits of hops. Lots of carbonation and a light body. Clean finish.

C’est une excellente bière belge. Elle est meilleure que la leffe, je dirai plus amère et la touche sucrée ressort moins que sur celle que j’ai cité au-dessus. Elle se marie bien avec les plats de moules.

Pnigro (10) - COSTA RICA - MAR 24, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 Strong beer, great for occasional drinking. Nice smell, good appearance. Huge long lasting head. Overall a pretty decent beer. The excessive carbonation can be a turn off.

TheJestersBeer (2188) - SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy medium straw, with a white head. Malty, spicy, yeasty aroma, lightly phenolic, cloves, citrus, light caramel, bisquits. Dry, medium body and bitterness, creamy CO2. Spicy, yeasty taste, malt, caramel, cloves, citrus peel, grass, hops, quite herbal. Very well balanced and elegant. Doesn’t make too much fuzz about itself, but is just so very well made.

bier_fuer_hamm (3) - Hamm, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015 does not count
Schöne goldgelbe Farbe. Unglaublich stabiler Schaum. Riecht sehr malzig. Säuerlich im Geschmack, die 8,5% schmeckt man nicht wirklich raus. Ganz ok.

Obfita piana, ale zbudowana z dużych pęcherzy. Bardzo dobry lacing. Piwo barwy słomkowej, lekko mętne. Mocne wysycenie, goryczka raczej niewyczuwalna. Alkohol delikatnie wyczuwalny, mimo wysokiego voltarzu. W aromacie wyczuwalne nuty bananowe. W smaku owocowe - jabłko, białe owoce. Lekko kwaśne

MMJL (169) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Zapach ze szkła lekko słodowy, ciasteczkowy. W barwie słomkowo jasne, wyraźnie zmętnione. Piana jest bardzo wysoka, biała, szybko się rozluźnia, ale lepi się do szkła. Aromat ze szkła fenolowy, przyprawowy, goździkowy, lekka kolendra, anyż. To co jako pierwsze nasuwa się na myśl już po pierwszym łyku, to niezwykła pijalność. Piwo jest bardzo lekkie, co w połączeniu z wysoką zawartością alkoholu powoduje, że to piwo w pełni zasługuje na swoja nazwę (diabeł). W smaku jest słodkie, lekko owocowe, korzenne. przywodzi na myśl skojarzenia z winem musującym. Goryczka delikatne, przyjemna – zarówno alkoholowa jak i chmielowa. W posmaku już wyraźniejsza.
