Luxuria is de zonde van de onkuisheid. Dit bier is ontstaan uit lust en wekt de zoetste aller zonden op. Luxuria presenteert de begeerte op een zalig onkuise manier, als een volmondig bier van hoge gisting met een robijnrode kleur, een mooie hoppigheid, een pittige kruidigheid en een lange afdronk. Luxuria is gebrouwen met vier verschillende soorten mout, twee soorten gist en zes verschillende kruiden.

ddemmingjr (760) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle while brewing out Lucky Owl pale ale, original from rare beer club- pours dark molasses brown, dense khaki head that settles to a ring. Nose is nice, sherry, molasses, cinnamon and biscuit malts. Fair amount of cinnamon and some esters but nice full bodied malt sweetness and balance. Solid offering ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corkyrory66 (848) - BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2015
Bière brune forte (9 % abv) de Zeven zonden brassée chez Gulden Spoor par Hugel. Couleur brun foncé roux, avec de la levure en suspension. Mousse beige qui fait un nappage mince. Arômes de genièvre, kirsch et anis mêlés !!! (pas gêné…), le tout avec une fleur exotique (comme cerise sur le gâteau…). 1ère bouche douce sur un café refroidi avec une purée de fruits rouges dedans !! Arrière-bouche sur des airelles au poivre !! 2ème déséquilibrée en diable, que dis-je, en luxure … Arrière-bouche saugrenue. 3ème où on commence à faire la grimace (là, c’est vraiment mauvais …). Arrière-bouche informe. Longueur encore plus à la dérive (si c’est possible …). Levure correcte, mais noyée (la pauvre, elle n’avait pas demandé cela!!). Alcool correct, mais parfaitement inutile. Finale plantée (sans jeu de mots!!). CONCLUSION : pas une bière, mais une soupe à la grimace. A ranger avec l’amarante (pas marrante) de Millevertus … Mes points vont uniquement à l’étiquette.

KoNrRiI (699) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2014
0.33 bottle. Very dark brown color with a reddish tinge and a big, beige head. Sweet aroma of bananas, tons of spices, malts, herbs, some parsley. Taste is bittersweet with dark malts, spices, and herbal bitterness. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is even bitterer with more herbs and some cough drops. Overall not a bad beer even if a bit unorthodox.

Bicky (13) - Waregem, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2014
beautiful chocolate brown, red color, caramel -colored foam. the smell gives very tasty cholade keys , light roasted and nice round seasoning and some brown sugar. You will also find many herbs back in the taste of the chocolate and caramel together.

Klimaet (577) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2014
Pours dark brown/red. Aromas of dark sugar, dark fruits, caramel malt, some booze and vinegar. Taste is very sweet up front, some malty sweetness and some grainy notes. Some berry-tartness in there aswell.

monk191 (1241) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
A nice malty beer. Pours a deep cloudy red-brown with a thick white head. Smells very malty, with caramel and molasses. Taste has Caramelized sugar. Paired with seared scallops, cuts the sweetness and adds a bit of crispness to the beer. The spiciness works well with the maltiness. Had in the bottle.

gEUS (1395) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle shared by a kind soul at BBF’14. Pours dark red brown with a light beige head. Intense spice aroma (anice, cardemom and cinnamon). Thick body with high sweetness levels, countered by Christmassy/Glühwein flavours. A bit odd at the end of October, hell, a bit odd overall.
