3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Cloudy golden colour, small head. Weak, slightly fruity and slightly spicy aroma. A bit flat and boring in taste, with the alcohol not hidden well, and some notes of spiciness and yeastiness. Round mouthfeel. Okay, but I wouldn´t buy it again.

Great beer, was a lot lighter than i expected, was expected something like the delerium nocturnum but was pleasantly surprised by something close to the tremens. Fairly fruity, and dry, something I could drink all day!!

Amber-rouge. Adherent and long-lasting foam. Aroma of fruit sand bank. In mouth he turns out warm, wrapping, persistent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Hall’s Beer Tavern in Paris, France.
Damaged Pear Skin.
Odd nose. It’s sticky, very fruity and sharp as hell. Red apple skins, pears and caramel seep through.
Medium bodied. Fruit laden palate. Smooth. Huge caramel in the backround with notes of peach, pears and apples.
This beer makes me think that Huyghe can actually brew but oddly enough, it is very similar to the Tremens....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky dull orange color, under a flush, fuzzy white head.
Nose is resplendent with spices and citric fruit, lively and arousing.
Taste: great, tingly, fruity, spiciness, right from the start and on and on. Blend of lemon, peach, orange apricot, with peppery, clovey companionship, creating a very active, rewarding flavor, quite playful on the palate, spicy citrus never quits in this one. Body is lightish, though, and finish is soft, swift, unremarkable. Alcoholic volume kicks in quickly too, at a meager 9%, even...
Reminds me a lot of Delirium Tremens, the most famous beer from this brewer, which makes you wonder why..eh, but why wonder, why wonder...A good bottle of suds, I sez!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33cl bottle) The best of the Belgians I sampled on Belgian Night (Wednesday) at Winstons English Pub. Pours a medium, white frothy head and a lightly carbonated amber body. Nose and flavours of coriander, asian spices and oranges. Average at best.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a white head. The taste is a light fruity and spicy dry bitterness. I can be a little thin but it kind of grows on you.
