Blonde beer with an herbal palate and a nice peachy flavour. Lots of yeast residue though.

VDuquerroux (312) - Airvault, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A yellow orange opaque beer with a medium creamy white head. Medium retention. Aroma of biscuit, fruit (citrus), alcohol, spices (coriander). Medium sweet and dry refreshing bitter. Medium body,nearly silky texture, fizzy carbonation, bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, a good refreshing beer wich becomes warming without being oily. "The bird spreads its wings."

330ml bottle served in own tulip glass Xmas with friends in Belgium and the opportunity to enjoy some beers that "Iíve left behind" back to the years when I use to live in the beautiful and pleasant country ;) A: Pours a totally hazy yellow to white color with a nice medium white creamy aired head. Medium to low retention but, it never disappears totally. Leaves some few lacings around S: Smell is a delicious bouquet! Quite strong on herbs and spices (coriander and cinnamon, mainly), orange zest, vanilla. The Belgium yeasts are damn good on the nose! Also the sweet grains and the flowery hops in the end T: Complex as the smell. Again very spicy, with the strong notes of coriander and orange zest. Also vanilla, yeasts, sweet grains and flowery hops. A bit sweet and some notes of alcohol can be felt in the end M: Heavy creamy body with medium carbonation. Perfect and balanced. Dangerously drinkable considering its 8.7% ABV O: Reality is that, this is a stronger (or "improved") version of the classic Hoegaarden. In USA, we would call it a "Imperial Witbier", or perhaps a "Double Witbier" ;). In any case, a brilliant result... [ BA Review @ 12/25/2011 ]

Wzmocniona odmiana Hoegaardena ktůra swoją mocą niestety zdominowała przeniczny posmak. Piwo traściwe o mętno/ciemnej barwie.

Golden and Claudy, almost no head. Aroma is earthy with sole hints of honey, grass, flowers. Taste is first sweet with some bitterness coming afterwards. Notes of flower, honey and alcool with a long finish. Quite good.
