Goudgeel met mooie kraag, veel co2. Aroma is friszuur, moutig. Smaak is zoet met wat zuur bij de afdronk. Redelijke body.

Bottle from Brewnbbq, thanks for the opportunity Jeff! Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly white head that has moderate retention. aromas of light sugary malt with bits of honey. Tart berry and pomme fruits come through nicely as well as some yeasty earthy esters. The flavor holds what the aroma promised, but adds a touch of warming alcohol. Medium body, sparkly carbonation. Nice brew, thanks for sharing!

호가든과 거품 성글고 지속력이 짧고 거품 질감도 마찬가지 바디 조직간 구분 없이 밍숭맹숭 물 맛이 남녀서 따로 놈, 끝맛이 오줌맛이 안나서 다행 같은 벨기에 맥주중에 9300원은 너무 비싸다

Alengrin (4076) - BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2014
Caracole’s best known beer, named after Adolphe Sax. Thick, rocky, pale yellowish white head, golden blond colour with orange hue, misty. Fresh aroma of grassy hops, orange, pear, lemon, coriander, vanilla, butter, straw and pale malt sweetishness. Fresh onset too, some citrus peel, rounded and fruity palate but only lightly sweet, drying up towards the finish with spicy yeastiness and hop bitterish finish. Elegant, accessible and very drinkable for an 8% ABV ale, with a certain saison influence.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a golden color and a large white head, with a lot of bubbles. Aroma of banana and pineapple, mint, Belgian yeast slightly funky, lemon, figs, honey and bread. Taste is of spices, fruit, honey. Has some hints of over-ripe citrus, but in a good way.Mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite cleansing. The finish is fruity, dry and a little bitter. Overall a very refreshing beer.

vadie (1183) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Le couleur du miel avec un tête léger mais avec bon rétention. L’arôme de fruits (du levure belge), un peu du malt, et aussi un peu de l’arôme typique du levure sauvage. Le goût est d’abord un peu du malt sucré, puis un peu de fruits et très peu de céréales. Ensuite il y a un goût un peu acerbe et légèrement amer avec une finition sec. Léger en bouche avec haut carbonization. Très bonne mais il manque un grand profondeur de goût et la complexité d’un des meilleurs bières belge du style.

(La Caracole Saxo) Bottle at home, 330 ml, poured into a tulip, ABV 7.5% Clear body, deep golden yellow in colour, A tall white head sitting on top, frothy, with low retention, minimal lacing left behind. On the aroma grains, yeast, perfume, faint fruity notes. Taste of grains again, fortunately not so heavy, nuts, peaches, perfume. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Overall okay.
