Bottle. Hazy amber with a big soapy porous off white head that leaves some minor lacings. Sweet syrupy and fruity aroma with toffee and lots of yeast and some spice. Taste is very sweet of syrup and toffee with apricot and orange marmalade and spice. A bit sharp bitterness. Big body with a syrupy mouthfeel and lively bubbles. A bit too sweet and cloying. Needs something to back it up.

Bottle@Chapitre. Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma has light malt, caramel and some fruityness along with estery, spicy notes. Taste is malty with light bread, biscuit and caramel and some fruity, spicy and estery notes. Esters is a bit too dominant but the beer hides alcohol well.

VDuquerroux (1266) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A sparkling golden amber beer with a medium foamy head ; good retention. Biscuit, herb, alcohol, roast, light caramel, light cinnamon, light fig. Medium sweet, light dry bitter warming. Light to medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, warming light dy spicy finish. Overall, enjoyable amber ale ; lack of body and texture. I used to drink this beer quite often 8-10 years ago ; today, a bit disappointing.

Très bonne bière ambrée. Elle ne monte pas trop à la tête et se marie avec beaucoup de plats.

Lore (2208) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 27, 2016
hazy orange to amber colour, huge, dense off-white head; aroma of dried fruits, some cocoa powder, floral and cheesy notes as well as leather; taste of Belgian yeast, dried fruitiness, burnt sugar, hints of cheese and malty sweetness; not a typical one, but still good Belgian strong ale

Lele (433) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 20, 2016
Birra molto buona. Sentori di caramello, tanta frutta (anche sciroppata), speziati. Ottima alla vista, un po’ meno al naso (poco intensa), in bacca risulta appagante, gustosa e semplice allo stesso tempo. Ben fatta!

Syfher (328) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a tulip glass; from the fridge. Great beer, with a deep orange colour and hazzly white head. The dominant aroma is fruity. The taste is mouthfull, a little roasted, with a earthy-roasted aftertaste. Really great beer.

ozzatoadisback (91) - ITALY - MAR 28, 2016
Dark orange, slightly hazy, rough and fast disappearing white head. Nose is sugar, esters, ripe fruits, a hint of earthiness; none of the above is standing out. Taste is sweet with sugar, caramel and maybe a hint of honey. Ripe fruit notes as in the nose. A hint of bitterness in the finish but maybe still a tad too sweet. Fruity aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation, soft mouthfeel, slightly prickly on the tongue. Nice, maybe a bit boring

Beggard (60) - - MAR 22, 2016
Pleasant but not intensive aroma with caramel/malt note, amber color with consistent foam, pleasant taste, pretty sweet, malt on top, not long lasting. Carbonisation as it should be. Worth to try

lello4ever (715) - ITALY - FEB 24, 2016
Colore ambrato, schiuma bianca molto frizzantina. Aroma di lievito, leggermente acidulo. Molto frizzante, corpo medio. Non molto dolce, anzi ha una buona parte amara. Nel suo genere si difende bene.
