Blonde houblonnée de 6,5 % abv et 34 ebu, avec malt pils, pale ale 9, froment, flocons de maïs et coriandre. Houblonnée au northern brewer, magnum et styrian goldings. Mon exemplaire avait été embouteillé en novembre 2013, et était préconisée pour 3 ans de validité, donc jusqu’en novembre 2016. Mention "très bien" pour ce brasseur qui ose proposer une longue validité sur une houblonnée ... Couleur doré tendre, avec un aspect mat très joli. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, vives. Superbe. Mousse blanche très crémeuse, très épaisse, stable à 11 mm. Magnifique. Arômes d’une superbe amertume à la Orval, coriandre, blé, pointe de maïs fine. 1ère bouche à la superbe texture, et l’extraordinaire entame malt/houblon dans le plus pur style de l’Orval. Arrière-bouche fantastique, à l’amertume très fine. 2ème où ça sent l’écurie à plein nez !!! Arrière-bouche longue, complexe, splendide. 3ème à la superbe texture moelleuse, au grand équilibre, avec élégance et harmonie. Arrière-bouche prégnante, très belle. Longueur qui détaille l’amertume sous plusieurs registres, mais toujours très finement. On trouve notamment quelques pointes fleuries remarquables. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure précise, fine, très belle ligne. Alcool parfaitement adapté au genre, il soutient l’amertume en long et en large … Finale subtile. CONCLUSION : une très grande bière, par sa référence gustative à l’Orval bien entendu, mais aussi par sa finesse propre et une exceptionnelle texture. Du grand œuvre... , même si on a mis dans le nom le diminutif "ke" … c’est-à-dire l’inverse de l’emphase de certains autres brasseurs (mais de qui parlez-vous donc ??)

75 cl bottle. Brilliant deep gold-orange, low head. Tart, spicy, slightly bretty nose, with citrus zest, slightly funky, bread. Peppery, spicy flavor of orange, some barnyard, chalk. Just enough sweetness somes to a rough and bitter, raunchy finish. Nice, funky and dry. Fruity, tasty stuff.

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a big white head. Very nice aroma, particularly with all the fruit notes. Lots of pineapple and pears, a bit of citrus and apple, too. Sweet bready malt, light straw, and some subtle spices. The flavor has an interesting bitterness on the finish, but is otherwise sweet. Good bread and biscuit malt flavors, a touch of coriander, and some citrus peel. There is a good fruit flavor of pineapple, pear, and apple, too. Nice mouthfeel with high carbonation.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2012
Bomber. Bretty, barny, overripe fruit aromas. Very cloudy gold. Sharp initial fruit; spices come out in mid palate; finish is a bit rough and chalky. Thin-medium body. Interesting stuff. Saison-like but heavier and spicier.
