Bottle at gollem.
Pours clear blonde. Good white head, smell is sharp malty.
Taste is bitter, sharp, maltsweetness, very high carbo. Bit perfumed, but not nearly as much as other champagne beers. Tastes a bit like a tripel

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A vivid, golden beer with a big and blond head. The aroma is fruitful and slightly aromatic, some citrusfruits, spices and flowers, hint of honey and alcohol. Taste is fruitful, spices, some alcohol in the end. Medium bodied, too much of carbonation, but that calms down after whirling. Spicy and fruitiful beer but it could be more complex and alcohol should be hidden better. Straightforward without sophistication of the external habitus. Good beer even the some criticism.

Bottle. Pours golden in color with a whitish head. Notes of wood, garden apples, old cellar and sweet honey in aroma. Lemon, white wine grapes and notes of sweetness in taste. Fruityness and also champagne like notes in the end, which then takes a turn into more sweet fruits and has a bitter

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big foamy champagne-like head, bright light golden colour full of bubbles. Light aroma, just a little sweet yeast and malt. Quite complex taste with champagne fruity yeasts, sweet malty tones reminiscent of a triple ale. Dry but rounded aftertaste and mouthfeel. Lively carbonation, good body tastewise but light. I like the Deus better, which has more complexity imo, but this very nice too.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another of De Landtsheer’s champagne beers, launched in 2005 to celebrate the 175th birthday of the nation of Belgium. Cream white, firm, thick, crackling head, light yellow blonde colour, clear with tiny yeast bits floating around. Pale malts in the nose, green apple, some pineapple, lemon peel, dry sherry, vanilla, mint, rose petals, fennel, nutmeg. Light and rounded ’pils malts’ onset, apple, dry with spritzy ’champenoise’ carbonation as expected from the style, spicy notes, bit earthy, sherry- and even saison-like with subtle sourness and equally subtle saltiness, finishing in grassy and peppery hop bitterishness, alcohol well hidden. Notably dryer than its predecessor, a great apéritif and interesting, but honestly speaking, I had expected a more luxurious edition of Malheur Bière Brut to celebrate the birthday of our beery nation...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml cork and a wire bottle with a golden neck. Ordered through bestillingsutvalget at Vinmonopolet. Shot followed by smoke when opened. A fair white head to a misty golden body. Wheat and ripe fruits on the nose. Mid-sweet taste of yellow apples, banana, peach and bread. Rather sweet fruity ending. Foamy in the mouth. Partially refreshing, far from great though (shared with Finn and djoeye, Tromsø 05.08.2014).
