Barwa słomkowa, lekko zamglona. Piana obfita, sredniopęcherzykowa. Dość szybko opada do cienkiego kożucha, pozostawiając ładny lacing na szkle. Wysycenie średnie. Lekkie zamieszanie piwa powoduje szybkie odbudowanie piany, ktora tworzy sie juz z drobnych pęcherzyków. Aromat bardzo ładny, wyczuwalne nuty fenolowe - przyprawy: pieprz, gozdziki. W tle banany i lekkie nuty winne. W smaku orzeźwiające, bardzo dobrze zamaskowany alkohol, który objawia się delikatnym ogrzewaniem przełyku podczas picia. Piwo jest musujące i w smaku jest bardzo podobnie jak w aromacie. Pomimo dość wysokiej zawartości alkoholu, jest bardzo pijalne a co za tym idzie - zdradliwe. Podsumowująć: Bardzo dobre!

Blonde pâle, léger trouble, malts en bouche, légère amertume en finale, juste passable au palais même si le corps est généreux. Équilibrée, sans doute trop, ca me semble juste une bonne belge forte standard malgré son standing, toujours un peu déçu à la dégustation. Trouvable facilement en grandes surfaces en France (du moins dans les grandes villes).

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.

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
