lucanna77 (25) - ITALY - APR 14, 2014
Aspetto biondo opaco, schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Corpo leggero con sentori dolciastri. Alcolicità ben nascosta. Manca purtroppo di carattere e di mordente, non è più quella di una volta...

Living and bright golden-orange color, a bit cloudy. White and tick long-lasting foamy head. At the nose Belgian yeast, resin, herbal notes. Nice mouth, very refreshing: yeast, sour feel and a final cutting end of the palate. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambro206 (28) - ITALY - APR 7, 2014
Uno dei pilastri della birra belga. Non delude mai. Bellissimo colore arancione deciso, schiuma compatta. Sapori agrumati, floreali ed erbacei con un pizzico di caramello. Rinfrescante a dispetto dell’elevata alcolicità.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of banana, orange, grass, spices. Taste adds almond sweetness, wheat, more herbs/spices and orange and lemon zest. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Balanced bitter and sweet, medium long aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Lovely.

njnut (151) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2014
poured at tasting. A pale gold with small white head. Complex aroma I got a little spice, yeast, citrus and caramel. In the taste I got a little more of the hops and the citrus with a wheat background. Light and dry.

aleksander9 (279) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2014
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Pours a deep blond with nice white head. Aroma is delerium tremens mystique, wit yeast, citrus, Belgian spice, caramel and some floral hops. Thick and slick mouth feel with low carbonation. Aftertaste is sweet malt, citrus fruits, floral hop bitterness, wit yeast and lasting spicy alcohol. Dry finish. Overall: excellent. Delerium tremens\wit on steroids.
