EithCubes (5557) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Backlog from 27 June 2011. Bottle in Budapest. Orange pour with consistent carb and a Duvelish head (!). Nose is straight yeast and basically Pilsner malt. Taste is yeast and candy sugar, but not really sweet; grittyish and dry with nice yeast notes. Warms the chest but not boozy, mild fruitiness alcohol, well-hidden but this one’s about the yeast.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle at home. Great bottle! Beer pours a golden amber with a thick white head that fades to almost nothing. Slight lacing. Nose is christmas spice, cloves, hint of banana, vanilla. Similar flavours, big sweetness, pretty fizzy but with a decent spiced hop finish. Alcohol hum too. Not bad at all.

MrHangover (3901) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Orange colour with a white head. Smell of grapefruit, lemon and Belgian yeast. Flavour is strong alcoholic. Bites a lot on the tongue. Gets better when warmer.

lukin (568) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
Cloudy gold, massive head. Aroma of pear, apple, grains, sugars, citrus. Big intense taste, alcohol, sugars, bitter kick on the swallow. No subtleties on this one, name suits it.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2011
Optisch trüb gelb mit üppigem feinen Schaum obenauf. Typischer fruchtig-hefiger tripel-Geruch. La Guillotine startet fruchtig, legt dann etwas Herbe nach und feuert das Geschmacksbild noch mit etwas Alkohol an. Säuerlicher Nachhall. Die 9% reißen einem zwar nicht gleich den Kopf ab, machen sich aber schon bemerkbar. Geschmacklich ziemlich gut gelungen, lecker. Das Etikett hätte man sorgfältiger zeichnen können.Test vom 14.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche
