(Bottled, BBE 21/03/2015) Cloudy yellow-orange with a medium head. Strongly orange-fruity, honey-malty nose with a touch of pear and phenolic alcohol notes. Flavor is orange-lime-fruity with a syrupy-malty, honeyish backbone and some herbal hops with a spicy touch. Quite full-bodied with balanced, medium CO2 and well hidden alcohol. A surprisingly enjoyable and easily drinkable brew, although there may be slight bias as this was my first beer on a Friday afternoon after work. 5447

Voila une bière belge qui ne va pas rentrer dans l’Histoire ! Quelconque de bout en bout, elle n’apporte que peu d’arômes et de saveurs et de façon très légère.

Pours a slightly cloudy peach colour. Subdued aromas of banana, and Belgian candy. Flavours are sweet malty bread with a noticeable lemon sour tang finish. Thin palate. Interesting. Not bad.

Who the hell would come up with this recipe and think, "Wow, this is good, let’s sell it?" Especially in Belgium, of all places. Sure, this is better than a macrolager, but it’s really not a good Belgian Strong Ale. Light copper colour, off white head. Faint metallic fruit aroma. Taste is a slightly sweet, quite metallic flavour, some bitterness. A bit boozy. Way too assertive on the palate. Kind of biting, if that makes sense. This is like a Belgian ale gone wrong. Alright, waited a while. Here’s what I think is going on here. Too much carbonation. After letting it sit for a while, I get more aroma, a bit better taste. Original rating was 2.7. This beer still has issues, but not as bad as I originally thought.

Kavu (1960) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2013
0,33l bottle from Casino Géant Poitiers. Pours clear golden with a thick high head. Aroma is malts with some yeast. Flavor is malts, yeast and alcohol. Pretty normal and quite drinkable strong belge.
