birra superba.. di colore ambrato con abbastanza deposito ,torbida e con una schiuma sempre presente ma poco spessa. aroma molto molto fruttato ma anche ben speziato,tipico da birra belga dove il luppolo č si presente ma i lieviti e il malto fanno da padroni. gusto pieno,penso sia perfettamente bilanciato fra il dolce fruttato del malto e dei lieviti iniziale insieme al piacevolissimo finale e retrogusto amaro ma non eccessivamente,il giusto che basta ad invogliare un’altra sorsata! voto strameritato per una birra veramente ben fatta!

Vells (649) - LATVIA - JUL 18, 2014
Quite interesting exp. Intense yeast presence, pleasantly fruity, mostly orange, banana, spices, bit notes of alcohol spiking, light malty background. Quite dry finish. Sweetish with light bitterness. Drinkable, but nothing special to buy it more

beleggor (59) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours with big white head. Colour is rather orange than yellow. It smells like a candy. There is a lot of sweetness, some vanilla notes, some banana, bubble gum, caramel. It’s ok, but a litle bit too sweet. Same in taste - it looks like someone puts a lot of sugar there. There is no bitterness, and for me it was hard to finish, becouse there was nothing that can balance this sweetness.

PawelD (140) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. W zapachu drożdze-banan, alkohol przywodzący na myśl zmywacz do paznokci. Kolor słomkowy, mętny, piany brak. W smaku mocno słodowe, wytrawne, gęste smakuje drożdzami. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, alkohol nie do końca dobrze zbalansowany a goryczki brak.
