zaf (270) - - MAY 28, 2013
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 è 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!

TedE (545) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2015
330ml bottle into tulip. Nose is sweet spice. Cloudy orange beer with sediment. Medium carbonation keeps everything moving. Quite neutral at first but it’s all at the end. Slight bitterness leads to cream, banana, cloves and an alcohol hit. Sugar is still present late on. Like a normal Hoegaarden but all grown up.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
The unfiltered golden ale has a beautiful white foam that keeps relatively long. It has an irresistible fragrance of flower and hops, but the aroma is very discreet. A pleasant soft, bubbly and dry flavor spreads a hoppy and fruity taste. The relatively high alcohol content is not pungent taste. I recommend that you pour it very gently in the glass, there is a lot of yeast residues at the bottom. The finish is very lengthy and this Grand Cru is completely at the top among the largest Belgian ales.
