I’m not certain why it has taken me so long to try this beer. Pours a hazy golden with a fair amount of flotsam. Steady off white head that has steady centralized carbonation. Hints of allspice and corriander in the nose. Rolling smooth rounded sweet caramelly body and finish with a smatter of hops and honey. Dont blink, its pretty quick. Nice sticky lacing.

I’ve been meaning to try one of these. It’s just a such a immature label that i never took it for real. turns out it tastes alright. though somewhat indiscenrable from most BSAs i remember a distinct spiciness.

(bottle - 11.2 oz) Golden color with a puffy white head. Aroma is spicy with lots of yeast, cloves, herbs, and some citrus. Flavor is very spicy and yeasty with a slightly sour and bitter finish and a touch of caramel. Very fizzy and overly carbonated.

Cloudy gold/amber. Aroma is spice and yeast. Flavor is spices, herbs, yeast, and some fruit. A little bit odd. Not as good as I expected, but unique.

750 ml Bottle. Tulip La Chouffe glass. Beautiful hazy amber color with thick and bumpy off white head. Tiny little yeast bubbles continue to rise to the top in a quiet maelstrom. Sweet and spicy fruit and floral aroma. Similar taste with alcohol and slight bitterness making their presence at the end. Last week I was at a bar where this beer was on tap and surprisingly even my non beer conniseur friends loved it. Brillant and accessible.

75 cl bottle. Golden with a lots of sediment and a huge, nice head. The aroma has sweet, but light notes of fruits, coriander and yeast. The flavour has the same notes, but also citrus (tangerine), and a hint of resin in the finish. A really nice blonde, a little more complex than most.
