ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 11, 2016
Murky dark orange color with white head. Sweet malts, caramel, molasses and some dried fruits on the aroma. Taste follows, really balanced, you get some sweet malts and dried fruit but also some bitterness on the finish. Body is medium with high carbonation. Not bad but overall it lacks some depth of character.

Spéciale belge d’Aalst, tournée dans un esprit quad, mais d’un niveau abv légèrement inférieur de 8,3 %. Son inspiration est aussi féminine puisque Angélique était un personnage local sur les marchés et foires, avec son orgue de Barbarie, et elle a inspiré des brasseuses locales. Malts d’orge et de blé. Mon exemplaire avait 18 mois de mise en bouteille, et ceci à mon sens a grandement contribué à son appréciation... Grand bien en soit-il pour Angélique … Couleur ambre profond à châtain moyen, à la clarté nette. Bulles par myriades, partout, vives et tourbillonnantes. Mousse beige clair à la texture veloutée, stable à 9 mm. Admirable. Arômes de malt grillé, fruits mûrs, pointe de whisky du Speyside, pointe de cannelle et foin séché. 1ère bouche souple, à l’ensemble étonnant malt/épices. Arrière-bouche riche, dense, complexe. 2ème à la superbe combinaison malt/houblon/levure. Arrière-bouche aux nuances infinies, avec beaucoup d’impressions de bois. 3ème à l’exceptionnel ensemble malt/épices/levure. Arrière-bouche merveilleuse, vineuse, boisée. Longueur à la sublime évolution avec classe, nuances, finesse, élégance et force, harmonie. Jambes denses, serrées, fines. Levure douce, fine, nuancée, très grande ligne. Alcool superbe, il donne plus que son niveau, il dirige l’orchestre... Finale avec encore d’autres nuances, dont une pointe de figue. CONCLUSION : il est strictement inconcevable qu’une bière pareille attende son 319 ème rating pour recevoir un 5 !!! Évidemment, il faudrait savoir combien de dégustateurs ont attendu 18 mois pour la boire … Ceci restreint déjà sensiblement le chiffre … Angélique est merveilleuse, qu’on se le dise !!!

mgajdaczewa (1616) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 25, 2016
W aromacie owocowo, brzoskwinia, ale i pojedyncze nutki czerwonych owoców, do tego przyprawy, pieprz, goździk, bardzo apetycznie. W smaku raczej wytrawne, więcej przypraw niż owoców, gładkie, doskonale ukryty alkohol i wysoka pijalność. Zdradliwe.

vincentvega72 (363) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2016 Bij het openen van de fles redelijk fruitig in de neus. Walm van rood fruit. Mooi troebel robijnrood van kleur. Zeer lekker smaakvol bier. Zoet maar niet té. Beetje krieken, kersen, rijp rood fruit. Héél lekker.

drpimento (3075) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Nice beer. Aroma is malty, fruit, yeast, almost bubblegum. Flavor’s similar to nose, plus has some tang and a little bitter in the finish. Texture is soft, maybe too soft. A bit of warmth in the finish too.
