Voor mij het beste bier van deze brouwerij. Echt een aanrader voor mensen die houden van een bier met een uitgesproken smaak

77ships (3686) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2012
33 cl. fles @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske – ingeschonken in een Gruut glas – lichter gouden, lichtjes maar echt wel lichtjes wazig, aanzienlijk grote witte kraag, moest eerst gewoon kraag drinken. De ingrediënten lijst verraad hop wat dit dus geen echte gruit maakt. Ruikt naar pittige esters, hooi, zachte citroen, kruidige gist wat BE hop, graan, gemengd met zoete zachte banaan. Smaak is tevens een combinatie van kruidige gist, witter peper en hooi op het einde, graan, lichte zachte citroen op het einde, kruidige, lichte floraal BE hop, kruiden met wat zoete banaan maar minder dan in de geur, lichte witte suiker. Lichtjes droog, gemakkelijk te drinken – zie niet echt wat het probleem hier is. Niets mis met deze een lekker, kruidige en gemakkelijk te drinken Belgisch bier.

Gary (1369) - chill and boost, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2012
(Botttled) Gigantic creamy head lives peacefully above glowing yellow streams of vibrant yeasty liquid. The nose speaks of flowery hops ,green apple and perfume. Quality ’Belgium’that I could happily drink till I cant remember my name.

Mainuh_man (96) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours a clear pale with big, fluffy white head that lingers. Unique aromas that are sweet and fruity:. Apple and pear, alcohol, vanilla, tobacco. Sweet vanilla up front with cereal grain, slowly morphs into a subtle, herby bitterness that cuts the malt, finishing with warm alcohol in the throat. Medium body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel; really very smooth drinking. Overall, some interesting things going on with this beer. On the sweeter side, but overall balances well and really nice mouthfeel.

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2011
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
7 Upon openning, there’s initially a sweet ripe berry fruitiness, but on pouring, much more citrus comes out. Some maltiness, but also quite a barky bitterness too. After a big swirl there was even some banana.
4 Opened with a nice pop and a waft of CO2. Pale gold, large spongy head settles to a small layer. Initially poured clear, added the yeast half way through.
7 Lovely slightly yeasty light grainy body. Hops are barky and bitter. Enough residual sugars to balance the bitterness. Feels serious, but not aggressive. Alcohol hides behind the bitter bite. Adding all the yeast fills out the breadiness of the grains.
4 Full palate, even fuller when the yeast is added, fizzy carbonation. Needed to swirl and swirl and swirl this to flatten it to a level where it could happily sit on my tongue for me to savour. Finish sweet light grains at first, blending seemlessly into a really potent bitter tingle that mellows to a lovely fresh whole green hop grassy resin. That makes up for the fizz easily.
15 Lovely tripel. Very much reminds me of the Steenberge Hopduvel Gentse Tripel. However, they’ve pushed this up to 9%, and still kept it a lovely drinkable beer. No flaws, this is right up there as a classic tripel.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, floral notes, perfume and spice. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, fruittiness, floral notes and spice with a crisp dry lingering spiced finish.

Bozo_skeleton (484) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 22, 2014
Ambrée au collet généreux. Aromes fruités tirant sur l’aigre. En bouche elle ressemble plus à une belge classique avec sa flaveur de levure typique.
