Bleke, gouden kleur met wit schuim. Aroma: gist, kruidig, licht fruitig, hinten van peer en abrikoos. Levendig in de mond, fijne film. Smaak is bitterdroog, zoet in de nasmaak.

puboflyons (3064) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2016
From the corked, caged, and foiled 750 ml bottle with an 05/16 bottling date. Orange-yellow pour underneath a big, white foamy head. Active carbonation. I get a forward aroma of Saltine crackers, Graham crackers, orange zest, and butterscotch. Light to medium body. The taste is also very cracker-like with toasted bread and a bitter and fruity finish. Effervescent.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with tall offwhite head. Aroma is light malty with biscuit and slightly spicy with coriander and a slight hoppiness. Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread and slightly spicy and hoppy. Finish is rather dry and bitter.

QcBeer (128) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2016
Couleur dorée 100% transparente. Une épaisse mousse pétillante recouvre ce liquide formée de grosses bulles avec une effervescence des plus démoniaque. ça sent la fleur ŕ pétale blanche, de petit fruit et la levure belge. En bouche, un léger soupçon de pomme verte et de sucre brun, on ressent qui a de l’alcool mais on ne la goűte pas du tout. Une finale sčche et légčrement épicé. Correct

Fules (728) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 20, 2016
Iszonyú nagy habja van, és rendkívül lassan apad. Színe enyhén homályos borostyán sárga. Friss, fűszeres illat. Finom üdítő savanykásság, jelzés értékű édességgel. Erős keserűsség, ami utóízében még durvábbá válik. Jellegzetes komlós ízvilág, a lágerekre hasonlít. Testes sör, érezni hogy erős.

sloshgator (696) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Brouwerij Huyghe La Guillotine has strong malty notes but lacks complexity. Pour is a medium amber color but had a scant head. Just a bit of malt in the aroma. Taste is sweet with a syrupy body to match -- not much else going on here. La Guillotine is ok for last beer before the knife.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Playing Tomb Raider 2015. Strongly herbal-soapy, making it hard to drink

Syfher (315) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Hum, long time no see Huyghe... but your beers are always so dissapointing. We’re in front of a brown-red colour, with a sweet aroma. The head seems fuzzy, as the taste is. No real palate...
