Evilman (131) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2016
A simple, unoriginal but pleasant beer. Tastes like a lot of classic Belgian beers, it doesn’t come close to any of them but it’s still quite cool for what it is. Fruity aroma and a generous alcohol level, it does the job quite well if you don’t expect a revelation. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

DrNosha (1734) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2016
33cl Flasche. Die Comic Flasche ist schon das Beste. Gelbes Bier mit grobem Schaum. Sehr alkoholischer Duft. Süss und malzig im Geschmack. Mit fruchtigem Alkohol.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy and yeasty arom. Moderate bitter flavor. Some harsh fruity esters. Average finish. Oily palate and too fizzy.

lbianchi66 (325) - FRANCE - FEB 28, 2016
Robe jaune paille et trouble. La mousse se forme et tient assez bien. Arômes fruits jaunes et céréales. Goût très alcoolisé. légères notes agrumes et biscuit. Aucune tenue en bouche. Carbonatation très forte et fine, texture épaisse. Beaucoup d’alcool et de gaz, pas grand chose d’autre.

budedou (816) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 20, 2016
Golden beer with superb huge white and light foam, animated crackling. Aromas of malt, sweetness, hints of citrus and alcohol. The taste is soft, honey, lemon, hop and alcohol. Nice balance acidulity-bitterness. Rich beer but pleasant and easy drinkable. Finale more dry.

mmahut (1846) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours in hazy pale body with high frosty head. Aroma has strong sweet malty character, alcohol notes. Taste has high syrup sweetness, medium to low bitterness. Body is full, medium carbonation.

ljthiessen (1138) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Can. Cloudy straw-yellow pour with a thin white head, decent lacing. Aroma is apple juice with a touch of orange and lemon zest. Flavour is sweet citrus and apple with some candy notes and a touch of bubblegum. Overall too sweet and not a good example of the style.
