Tap at Uptown Cafe - Bloomington,IN...cloudy golden pour with a bazooka bubblegum nose and a bananas over lemon taste. Somewhat spicy and little tart with some barnyard funk. Good example of the style and fun to drink.

AGCostaNeves (48) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2015
With a cloudy golden yellow color that help cover sediments that fall to the bottom of the cup. This beautiful Strong Golden Ale features a White Cream of high training and dense with a lasting persistence that goes to the end of the tasting, marking harmoniously side of the cup. Its aroma is delicious and exudes a metal flavor that probably originated from waste fell from re-fermentation. Very herbal and floral (white flowers). Being well with delicious fruity citrus notes of orange peel and spices such as coriander, ginger. The taste is initially sweet, where the caramel hides behind the alcohol, and is soon caught by the ideal of bitterness Belgian herbal hops that merges with the spicy played that is present until the end of the sip. This beer strives for balance and to be refreshing. Prolonged and bitter aftertaste of specific Belgian hops with a certain metallic taste. The body is medium dry and spicy finish. Drinkability medium / high. A classic Strong Golden Ale Belgium

While this beer is common amongst the well-known Belgian beers, it has a great taste and is smooth to drink. It has a full-bodied taste and goes down well, considering it is 8% ABV.

La Chouffe reste fidèle à ses caractéristiques de belgitude typique. Cette blonde, trouble comme il se doit, amère comme il se faut, est très agréable sans se démarquer totalement. On aura plaisir à y revenir sans pour autant se ruer dessus.

Belle longueur en bouche et bel équilibre général. Se déguste facilement. Manque peut-être un peu de caractère.

Ampolla de 33cl. de ABV 8,0% i del lot 3105 1959 amb data preferent de consum el 9 del 2016 L’aspecte és lleugerament tèrbol, però no és lleig en absolut. L’escuma es densa i compacte al començament, n´hi ha la justa i és de color blanc, però no arriba a ser persistent. Al cap de poca estona ja deixa al descobert la part superior de la cervesa, que és de color daurat (or). Es veu una carbonatació fina que puja contínuament del fons de la copa. L’aroma és una barreja de dolçor, flors blanques, espècies. Lleugeríssima presència d’alcohol. Caramel molt discret per sota l’alcohol. Quelcom de sofre, també molt suau, barrejat amb un punt àcid. Olor de clau i coriandre. En boca és dolça, però no excessivament. No és una dolçor ensucrada. Tot és lleuger. El cos és mitjà. Potser s’hi troba un xic més l’alcohol. Passa molt bé per la boca. La carbonatació és menor de la que visualment m’havia imaginat que trobaria. No té un gust especialment persistent. L’aspecte s’enterboleix un xic al fer el segon servei. Cauen sediments al fons de la copa. Es desprèn un aroma metàl•lic, segurament dels residus de la refermentació en botella que hi han caigut. Va apareixent l’amargor i persisteix el gust metàl•lic. T’omple la boca però per poca estona Un molt bon treball amb els ingredients, fan que aquesta cervesa tot i sent dolça no empalagui , sigui refrescant i es pugui considerar equilibrada. Tant ben composta que és molt fàcil de beure tot i els seus 8 graus d’alcohol. Només li desitjaria una millor persistència en boca.
