lovibond (115) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Talk about taste progression -- on draft in Belgium, it’s so much about the corriander. In bottle in the US, the spices fade a bit and some nice maltiness comes to the fore. And after cellaring for 8 or 9 years, the spices are gone altogether and so are most of the hops, leaving a slight maltiness and a nice sweetness.

Clear golden with a frothy white head that recedes quickly to leave a ring of foam. Loads of classic Belgian flavours... bread, banana, cloves, yeasty easters... quite a pronounced hop character... light and crisp and very easy drinking. Really good.

kingaugusta (224) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Pours slightly hazy blonde with a decent white head. Nose is a touch spicy and plenty full fruits and Belgian esters. Flavor is very clean and has a relatively sturdy hop profile for the style. Very easy drinking and crisp for a strong Belgian.

Inoven (268) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2016
Big Chouffe gedeeld met familie. Oranjerood, licht troebel bier met matig schuim. Aroma is fruitig. Smaak is fruitig en hoppig. Nasmaak is licht bitter. Lekker om rustig van te genieten.

mezr (96) - California, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip. Cloudy orange with a minimal white head that dissipates quickly into a thin film. Fruity, malty aroma, medium body, sweet, lemony, and a bit fizzy at first, but then softens some. Feels nice on the palate. Subtly bitter finish. Nice.

Todella hienoa, että saatiin tämä pienessä pullossa Alkon vakiovalikoimaan. Omasta lasistaan ja omalla lasinalusella tämä on kyllä erittäin nautittava kokonaisuus. Odottelen jo kesää ja terassia, jotta pääsee nautiskelemaan tästä oikeassa ympäristössä. 19.5.2013: Samea kullankeltainen olut paksulla, höttöisellä ja pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu eksoottisen hedelmäinen ja makean toffeinen. Maku asteen verran kuivempi, hedelmäinen ja raikas, hieman hiilihappoinen ja keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Mainio terassijuoma. 16.8.2013: BBE 19.10.2013, 0,75L pullo. Jopa parantunut aiemmasta. Samalla täyteläinen ja raikas.

ogniskowicz (688) - POLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Koncert drożdży w aromacie, wspaniałe morelowe estry, połączone z przyprawami i gumą balonową. W smaku zaskakująco lekkie i pijalne jak na ten woltaz. Wspaniałe piwo.

morri (277) - NORWAY - AUG 6, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 750ml bottle. Large white head. Clear golden body. Aroma is very mild. Mostly malty, some spice as well. A lot sharper on the tongue. Quite sweet and nice. The taste of alcohol is unnoticeable, especially considering its 8% abv.

Aroma of spices, pepper, yeast, fruits (peach, apricot). Medum sweetness, well balanced by herbal/spicy bitterness. Very drinkable and refreshing, despite high alcohol content.
