Lekki gaszing z butelki (piwo niefiltrowane, refermentowane w butelce więc ma prawo), spora szampańska piana szybko opadająca do obrączki, mętna jasno pomarańczowa barwa. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, owocowo-słodowy, są cytrusy, dominujące brzoskwinie, morele, guma balonowa i cała masa melanoidyn kojarzących się ze świeżym chlebem, skoszonym zbożem, biszkoptami... W smaku delikatna owocowo-drożdżowa kwaśność, troszkę kojarząca mi się z witbierem, lekka odsłodowa słodycz, kontrowana przyprawowością z kolendrą i czerwonym pieprzem na czele. Goryczka nieduża, ale obecna, alkohol w sumie wyczuwalny, mógłby być lepiej ukryty, choć z drugiej strony może dodaje to głębi temu piwu? Nagazowanie średnie, odczucie półpełne. Belgijska klasyka po raz kolejny mnie nie zawodzi. Świetne kompleksowe piwo z bogatym aromatem i pięknie skomponowanym bukietem smakowym, bardzo pijalne a zarazem szlachetne.

MrMati (26) - Trzebnica, POLAND - MAY 5, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2015 Poured from tap. Bananas in aroma, note of herbs, little citrus. Yeasty. Gold, a little hazy color. Not so big foam with good lacing. Low carbonized. Taste is mystery for me - its something like parsley or other sort of root with herbs and honey note. Little fruity. Medium, noble bitterness with characteristic Belgian aftertaste. Very tasty.

Hazy amber beer with a filmy head. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Flavour has all of this but there’s a floral, banana taste to it too. I can’t pick out the spice, maybe a sort of cinnamon taste? Makes it sound like a pudding but it’s not like that. Crisp and refreshing but a hell of a lot of flavour to it as well.

Slightly hazy Amber pour with a thick white head. Nose is slightly floral. Dry, some bitterness, nice Belgian spices and slightly floral finish. Nice.

Bière blonde et fidèle au style Belge, tant dans son architecture que dans ses saveurs. La mousse est plus qu’abondante et le liquide vibrant d’une vive effervescence juvénile. Les arômes sont intenses: beaucoup de grains, un peu de banane, de la coriandre, du clou de girofle. Le nez n’est pas vilain du tout mais manque de nuances à mon avis. Celui-ci est en fait très chargé et on s’attend à des saveurs qui le sont autant. Liquide très charpenté en bouche: les céréales sont sucrées, l’alcool ainsi que les épices sont très présent. Bière au corps important et lourde pour l’apéro; je la recommande plutôt en fin de repas lors d’une soirée froide d’hiver.

Poured from a large champagne sized corked bottle into a tulip glass. Aroma- Has a spicy yeast aroma, incredible smell. Appearance- Pours an orange color with a medium sized white head. Taste-Great yeasty malt flavor with noticeable spice added. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Goes down very smooth. Overall- World class beer, this should be on everyone’s must try list.
