Very nice beer. Not as hoppy or tart as I thought it would be. Surprisingly light too for such a high alcohol %. Definitely a drinkable beer that I’d drink again and would recommend.

75cl. bottle. aromas of orange, hops, bananas, pears, apricot. hazy yellow with a large creamy head. flavors of orange, apricot, pear and a slight hop flavor slight malty nuttiness. balanced and slightly creamy becoming slightly dry in the finish. a tasty refreshing beer. A fine refreshing Belgian beer that is very refreshing despite the alcohol.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Light lemony/peppery aroma. Squash and piney (pine nut?) notes. Acerbic flavor, but overall quite subdued for the ABV....this is quite a simple brew really. Simple, but not unenjoyable.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2004
bottled porte noire cafe brussels: poured hazy yellow with an off white head. i had just had la caracole ambree and this one was similiar but slightly lighter in color and flavor. however, not in alcohol which i was surprised to find out. this one has some sweet banana spice character and some smashed by the back of a dirty old leather boot slickness to the palate. a notch down from the ambree.

Bottled. Cloudy golden. Old cellar, old cheese in the aroma. Flavour is woody and earthy and brings overripe yellow apples. Rich, dry finish

The beer came in a 330 ml brown longneck bottle that had a nice art deco label. The serving temperature of 46˚ F on the back label is too low in my opinion. I drank mine at 65 ˚ F to bring out more flavor nuances. The body was slightly hazy golden pale with a medium but constant carbonation. The head was rich and rocky and left a good deal of lace. Aroma was sharp and yeasty with some floral tones. The taste was well attenuated, lemony tart, and quite dry, with a lot of Belgian farmhouse funk. There was also a peppery pungency to the aftertaste. The alcohol was very well hidden and would never have been guessed to be as high as it was (8% ABV). This was one of the first arrivals on July 1st in Georgia, and I picked it up that day. Ironically now we have such abundance of selection here, I am finally getting around to it. Good things come to those who wait I guess.

Typical Belgian blonde in appearance, medium golden with a big white head that is very nicely retained. Aroma is yeasty, but also has some light farmhouse funk also and some light hoppiness. Flavor is sweet, light hops and bone dry. Another enjoyable Belgian Ale.
