massingasetta (169) - München, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2014
Getrunken in Amsterdam vom Faß. Riecht honiglich malzig und nach Gewürz. Hauch von Zitrus. Schaumkrone ist bein Faßbier angenehm. Farbe ist Orange bräunlich und leicht milchig. Einstieg ist leicht süsslich mit Hefe-Geschmack. Relativ wenig Kohlensäure - was aber passt - dafür hat das Bier ein alkoholigen "Wums". Recht süffig für ein 8% Bier.

Lele (88) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Nell’aroma si percepiscono sentori di malto e poi di floreale, con particolare accenno al gelsomino. In bocca inizia con un amaro non invasivo per poi trasformarsi in un dolce delicato, in cui prevale il maltato e lo speziato, il particolare il coriandolo (che č infatti un ingrediente). Il finale č asciutoo: scompare quasi ogni tipo di sapore e ripulisce la bocca. Un classicone belga...assolutamente da provare!

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Illata sokat ígér, melyet maradéktalanul be is tart. Krémes testű, malátaízű, enyhén savanykás és kellemesen kesernyés főzet, a belga sörök jellemvonásait erőlködés nélkül hozza. Rendkívül jól összerakott sör, melyben az élesztő és fűszeres alkohol alapíze dominál, ez utóbbi voltaképpen fő karakterét is adja. Az elvárásokat minden tekintetben kielégítő, roppant kellemes darab.

La Chouffe est une bière blonde non filtrée, refermentée trois fois en bouteille. Elle est agréablement fruitée, épicée à la coriandre et légèrement houblonnée. Maintes et maintes fois récompensée lors de concours à travers le monde, la Chouffe est une des bières belges les plus appréciées et connues de tous, grâce à son lutin portant un bonnet rouge, représenté sur les bouteilles.

codfishh (53) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Poured from a 750ml bottle, hazy orange fluffy white head didn’t last long. Smells of honey like malt and spicy clove phenols. Taste is smooth some alcohol warmth, spicy cloves and sweet malt but finishes medium dry.

Bottle poured into tulip glass with a hazy orange color and brilliant large white head. Smell is citrusy. Spicy hoppy and but without any intense bitterness. Light bouncy mouth feel. A great lively belgian

Rangi (557) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 10, 2014
Hazy orange yellow. Nice lacing down the glass. Subtle aroma of spice and yeast. Flavour is much the same but there is a big aftertaste of yeast malt and spice that combines in a superb smooth after burp. Great beer interesting and deep.
