Bottle of 33cl. Great aroma of hop, followed by the nice taste of that hop ! Great palate too btw. We’re in front of a nice bière blonde, with a white creamy head. Try it, love it ! Cheers !

Belle apparence jaune cuivré avec une belle mousse généreuse. En bouche l’amertume est saisissante, on sent tout l’apport du houblon de cette bière. Elle reste en bouche sans devenir lassante ou dérangeante.

leischka (5) - - OCT 23, 2014 does not count
Poured following the ritual, using an authentic Hopus glass: beer into the glass, yeasty remains into a shot glass. After a few sips from the Hopus glass I poured in the yeasty remains from the shot glass. AR: fresh, coriander, citrus, light yeast, floral. AP: pale, unpleasantly yellow, after the ritual unpleasantly hazy yellow. T: medium bitterness. P: medium body, good balance between the malts and hops. O: A fine Belgian blonde with a pleasantly hoppy bite.

eduardovl (949) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in its own two glasses. Following the "ritual": in the tulip glass the "clear" part and in the small shot glass, the beer from the bottom of the bottle which contains the remains. You taste the clear beer and in the half glass you mix both. A: Before mixing, the beer has a golden yellow color and forms anhuge white fluffy head Duvel style. Retention is very high, the foam remains there forever. Whenever mixed with the shot glass it becomes hazy, obviously S: Citrus hops and yeasts backbone. Flowery. Candy sugar and sweet malts. Bit of alcohol in the end T: Pretty much as the nose. Citrus earthy hops, Belgian yeasts, candy sugar. But not a sweet beer, in fact, it’s dry and bitter M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Bitter hoppy aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Good Belgian IPA [ BA Review @ 5/13/2012 ]

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 14, 2014
Swingtop bottle alongside the 2014 Primeur. Pours hazy Golden with a pillowy White head. Virtually indistinguishable from each other similar nose and flavours although there seemed to be a bit more fresh hop flacour to the primeur. Possibly just the power of suggestion. Peppery hops and Belgian yeast with bags of bitterness. Nice brew.

sblsimone85 (293) - USA - OCT 12, 2014
Una belgian strong ale fortemente luppolata anche se in realtà è luppolata si ma non più di tanto, aromi agrumati come il cedro ed il limone , frutta gialla , lievito che pizzica il naso, al palato fresca ma con corpo , ha un che di fruttato ma non è troppo dolce, amaro finale. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

dsmith4 (41) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
33cl Bottle at A LA Mort Subite in Brussels. A Tripel hop style beer think of it as a european style IPA almost! As the name suggests this is a very hoppy beer. I f you like IPAs you will like this but with the added bonus of a touch of belgian spices (that are not at all over powering),

Relativt dov aroma, lite lageraktigt, lite belgisk jäst. Smaken kraftigare, mer jäst, sötma.
