corkyrory66 (890) - BELGIUM - APR 21, 2014
Une bière artisanale de 9,8 % abv, refermentée en bouteille. Couleur jaune très pauvre. Apparence bizarre avec de la levure floconneuse en suspension. Bulles quasi nulles, quelques unités éparses. Mousse blanc cassé qui nappe à 1 mm. Arômes de citron, margarine, amandes, groseilles blanches, malt, houblon amer. 1ère bouche souple mais totalement déséquilibrée, épice en tête avec du bois blanc et de l’amertume. Arrière-bouche sur le réglisse, margarine. 2ème au manque d’harmonie énorme, des éléments épars. 3ème plus douce, un peu mieux intégrée. Arrière-bouche sur une pointe de réglisse. La longueur entame sur du blé, anis étoilé, mais sans beauté. On perd le fil. La levure est douce, mais largement insuffisante pour le niveau d’une blonde forte. L’alcool est bien, mais il ne peut aider dans ce contexte disparate. La finale est peu plus stimulante, mais que de choses manquées. CONCLUSION : une zingende blondine qui ne chante pas, ça ne le fait pas. Et d’ailleurs sur l’étiquette, la blonde en est tombée dans le tonneau... Moi j’en tombe des nues … et je vous dis à bientôt.

Gullig grumset med mange gærrester liggende i lag. Let hvidt blivende skum. Næsen er sødlig med lidt jern. Smagen starter frisk, men går hurtig over i kvalmende sødme. Ikke lige mig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle, when opened it foamed. It poured cloudy and golden with a thick head. Aroma was sweet and fruity with a hint of ripe fruits. Taste is of grass and citrus. A long finish. Overall average strong ale.

JDBaker11058 (1540) - Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Appearance: opaque orange with golden edges; short, fizzy bright white head that quickly vanishes, leaving a thin collar and smattering of bubbles. Aroma: white wine, champagne, green apples, banana, grapefruit, pineapple, marmalade. Taste: sour and funky, with citrus, tart green apples, a hint of honey, hint of gym socks, lemon zest. Finish: very tart and dry, to the point where my throat constricts, only to be loosened by a slow-building and subtle (for a 10% beer) alcohol burn. Notes: Interesting. Almost like a the sour, tart Petrus Aged Pale Ale mixed with a Gulden Draak or something. A little more sour and tart than expected, but not terrible.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
330ml bottle from Good Beer. Pours a clear, dark golden color with a minimal effervescent white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of sweet malts, light sourness, and some spicy and yeasty notes. Taste is light honey, bread, sweet fruit (apples and grapes) with some sour notes that are part vinous and part vinegar. Sweet fruity malty finish with touches of honey and lemon. A bit too sweet.
