Ma cosa sono tutti sti voti bassi... ma siete PAZZI????? matti matti come dei cavallatti eheheheoeheehu. Siete mattacchioni che pazzettoni pezzettoni di pomodoro nel RAGOUT alla bolognese del nonno che abita a Gignese. Sta birra è una figata allucinante: se uno non fa caso che sembra che il biscotto ce l’abbiano sbriciolato dentro da quanto sedimento di lievito c’è... infatti ho abbassato l’appearance per quello sebbene io certo non mi faccia scoraggiare da un po’ di galleggianti. Spettacolare, dolcissima ma spettacolare; peccato che ora devo stare un mese in casa a studiare Archeologia... mah ogni tanto a votare una birra tornerò.

Een speculaas-bier met een zeer uitdrukkelijke smaak, veel mensen zullen dit niet lusten, maar ikzelf vond het zalig.

Bottle at ZBF. An orange sweet brew with a balanced cookie flavor. This beer must be a new standard of cookie beers.

Dobre i wyraznie czuc aromat ciasteczek korzennych. W smaku lekko slodkie i korzenne, cynamonowy posmak. Ciekawie to wyglada, drobinki jakby ciastek fruwaly w piwie. Piernikowo-biszkoptowe piwo. W sam raz jako dodatek do deserow. Paniom pewnie zasmakuje.

Imagine if you will an extra spicy plum duff (Christmas pudding) and liquidising it this is what i would imagine it would taste like. Spicy, cinnamon, cardamom all spice. Wonderful.

Beim öffnen der Flasche steigt schon ein Duft in meine Nase der wie Butterkekse riecht. In der Flasche befinden sich Kekskrümmel die dann im Glas durch die Kohlensäure rauf und runter schwimmen, sich aber nach ein paar Minuten am Boden absetzen. Das Bier ist sehr süß und malzig und man kann einen Keksgeschmack schmecken. Bier und Kuchen passen ja nicht wirklich zusammen aber ich könnte zu diesem Bier gut ein Stück Kuchen essen. Fazit: Leckeres, malziges Starkbier aus Belgien! Ist zwar ziehmlich verrückt aber trink ich gerne wieder!

Hazy blond color. Sweetish aroma, with a clear cinnamon footprint. Very sweet, round, correct bitterness, strong cinnamon. Funny, unprofessional, enjoyable.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Golden light amber with a medium head. Aromas of fresh yeast and many spices, cloves, cinnamon, santal wood, musk, ginger and spice cake. Very unique aromas. Flavors are much like its aromas with added candy sugar without the musk. Well balanced and its sweetness is nice as well but lacking in the bitter department. Overall, very impressive.

a sim rate: (bottled from beer shop in Bruges) Smells and tastes EXACTLY like a speculoos cookie... which can’t be anything but a good thing. Nice head and lacing. Ginger, cinnamon, caramel, nutmeg and orange in the flavour, and all in abundance. Cloudy, lovely amber colour. Thick, puffy head. Nice one all round!
