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.

Probably my favorite Belgian beer. Just love the crispness. Glad we can finally get this in Alabama.

Une trčs bonne bičre qui au palais est amčre aux premiers abords mais qui se laisse boire par la suite. Houblon d’une belle couleur. Je crois que c’était la premičre fois que je buvais cette bičre et c’est une bonne bičre que j’apprécie !

Clear yellow, high carbonation, white head. Aroma: hops, some yeasts, caramel. Dry, medium body, medium bitterness. Quite clean malty base, some hop flavour, bit yeasts, bread. Nicely hidden alcohol. Disturbing carbonation. Not much happening.

Good strong ale here. Has a sour aroma and a minimal head. Similar taste to the Delirium Tremens but much better when it comes to taste. Pairs well with Doritos Zesty Cheese Nacho chips.

It was a bit too hazy but it contains nice aromas. It was sweet but I could enjoy it :) Not an easy beer.

DraftDodger (995) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2016
Olhăo 12/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from Continente Modelo Supermarket. Funny chunky little bottle. Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with impressive white head. Settles as several centimeters thick crown of foam. Aroma Belgian yeast, banana and some earthy sourness. Medium carbonation and thick creamy palate. Flavor is rather tart and sour with only subdued sweetness. Sourness lingers in the aftertaste. A fine Belgian with a sour but pleasant edge.

lokis333 (351) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 11, 2016
Cloudy wheat yellow color with medium white foam. Aromas of wheat malt, yeast, light fruit acidity in smell with notes of light bread and this aged beer aroma. medium to heavy body with noticable carbonation and smooth rounded texture leaving sweet lightly boozy warming finish. Taste is sweet and boozy with warming touch to it folowed by notes of bananas, and hazlenuts? Overall, quite enjoyable, not too easy going but not mindblowing in my opinion as sometimes is presented.

Fules (634) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2016
Óriási, sokáig megmaradó hab, homályos, világos sárgás szín. Erős, komlós illat, gyümölcsös jegyekkel. Íze a hagyományos iskolát képviseli, nagyon tiszta, komlós, fűszeres, mindenféle mellékíztől mentes, úgy 8 - 10 C°-ig, további melegedéssel előbújik egy almás - gyümölcsös jelleg, ami egyre határozottabbá válik. Vigyázni kell vele, a magas alkoholtartalmat szinte egyáltalán nem érezni. Hosszú utóízében is a komló keserűje dominál. Nagyon finom, testes sör.
