on tap @ sister pub. mi piacciono talmente tanto le strong ale che anche questa (scarsa) industrialona alla fine la butto giù volentieri. Il profumo è classico da belga, con alcool pronunciato, sentori dolci di caramello e canditi. il colore è ambrato mediamente opaco, un po’ troppo trasparente per non essere filtrata. la schiuma è bianca e generosa, abbastanza vaporosa. In bocca ha un sapre un po’ metallico, ma si avverte bene la nota calda del malto e c’è una luppolatura (a mio parere) un po’ slegata. Si avvertono anche spezie( su tutte cannella). Il corpo è scarnoquasi acquoso. la carbonatazione buona. il finale è luppolato amaro non molto in linea con lo stile.

Tap at Sladovna House of Beer; pours a cloudy gold with a white head; aroma is sweet with fruits, yeast, spices, and floral; taste is bittersweet with malt, fruits, spices, and a hint of alcohol; finish is dry and bitter; drinks easy and very good

A malty beer, right when you drink from it, your mouth will be filled with a great malt-sensation. Also in the aftertaste, with some hints of corn and a little sweetness.

Mainuh_man (112) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma are fruity, malty and complex. Cereal grain, minerals (iron), citrus, smoke, flowers (camomile). Medium sweetness up front with not much complexity. Middle is floral with some hints of the camomile. Finishes with a drawn out herby hop bitterness with some anice in it, leaving behind warm alcohol in the chest. Medium body with a slick moutfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, tasty enough with good aromas, but flavor isn’t my favorite.

La Chouffe is een lekker biertje, voor zo nu dan thuis of op het terras. Vooral met het mooie warme weer

Poured from 330ml bottle nice and golden but less head than expected. Good spicy nose. Nicely carbonated with light mouthfeel. Good spicy taste with bitterness in the back of the throat. Goes down light and refreshing.

Gary (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
330ml : This is my ttype of thang. Loads of esters , lots of booze and a dry’ish spicy hoppy palate : a good old fashioned, unassuming Belgianbeer with creepy looking elves as a mascot. Huge white head above dirty orange looks real good in this tulip. Sellin’ this stuff there are peppers.oranges. Insence spice. fat yeast. Drinks with chewy bubblegum covered ppeppery fruit and just enough rich texture and hop dryness: A pretty complex but both damn drinkable beer: fucken hell this is more flavoursome than Iremember

One of the most beautiful bottles in my opinion. The beer has a yellow golden colour. Big white head and hazy liquid. Aroma of banana and orange. Very well balanced. Average carbonation. I really enjoyed this one.

First time I’ve tried this, and I liked it a lot. Cloudy amber with a lasting white head and good lacing. Coriander comes across strongly on the nose. Real dryness to the taste, from which come spice notes, subtle banana, slight citrus. Medium, creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.
