Contrairement à l’ambrée qui m’avait décu par son amertume et le gout de houblon trop intense. Celle la est vraiment une bonne bignouse.

Hanoi (396) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from notes. Nose is sweet, honey, elderflower touch of lemon. Taste follows with lots of honey and sweetness. In common with the style there is little hops which ultimately limits it’s appeal but a class leader.

daddanicola (5) - ITALY - DEC 19, 2013 does not count
delicata e sfiziosa, dolce e morbida, dissetante dagli aromi fruttati che non diventano mai troppo noiosi. direi una birra particolarmente femminile

minutemat (1655) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Wow. Now this beer is remarkable. Fresh banana esque aroma from the off, with an indulgent soft Belgian yeast and lemon flavour that fills the glass. Wasn’t expecting this from an unfamiliar beer but this is excellent. Now to search out their other offerings.

CanIHave4Beers (3281) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Real pretty glass of beer just here... nice n’ clear... golden, s’got a real decent fluffy white head that leaves 1 heck of a lacing on the glass... just a real fine look for beer, real fine.

The aroma is really very inviting, whole wheat bread, honey, earthy spices, light fruitiness... toasty and a little yeasty. Just nicely pungent & appetizing.

The flavor has a touch of honey sweetness at the start, but that sort of lets up fairly quickly... more of that whole grain breadiness in the flavor with some really nice spiciness. The beer has some subtle soft yeasty dough & floral notes with some pear like fruitiness. Really just nicely complex but approachable with a enjoyably dry finish.

The palate is maybe a little soft for what I like in this type of beer, but then it’s also really well suited to the flavors, it’s prickly and well carbonated... I’d prefer it a little livelier but I think the mouthfeel serves the beer well all together.

An altogether enjoyable drinking experience, sheesh... this is a shelf beer!
