Admirable bière qui développe encore l’immense potentiel du Westhoek... Cette région de Belgique nous offre une profusion de belles bières. Celle-ci est une surprise de taille, parce que très confidentielle. Couleur or brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes partout comme un feu de paille. Mousse blanche très épaisse et crémeuse. Superbe. Arômes de houblon très fin, pain blanc grillé, croissant, pamplemousse blanc. 1ère bouche douce de citron vert, coriandre, épices fines, fleurs de houblon. Le malt blanc vient après en arrière, superbe. 2ème bouche de grande finesse, et une pointe de cette épice de la Vieille Salm. 3ème bouche avec un développement sur les céréales/houblon/épices. Rétro-nez frais de fruits blancs, superbe. Longueur où l’orchestre se met en place. Levure douce, fleurie, fraîche avec une amertume de classe. Alcool très bien dosé, parfait. Finale où la symphonie se dévoloppe. Bière admirable sur une recette de Diksmuide, le fruit de Dieu et de la puissance, dit le commentaire du brasseur... Un vrai délice ce parrouquet (papagaei) dans un verre calice.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours hazy blond with decent white head. Beautifully sweet aroma with hints of vanilla. Taste is just incredible. Beautifully smooth with a soothing sweetness & good tripel notes. Very nicely blended with very minimal bitterness or spice. I could happily polish off a 75cl bottle of this.

One of my best beers! Sweet, not so hoppy and strong, good taste. Good for degustation or desserts.

Countbeer (5587) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2013
Bottle: Medium to bigger sized lively and with regular speed changing white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aromas of fruit, yeast, some grains, light hop notes, some malts. Flavours of spices, yeast, hops, bitters, light creamy, fruity. Well balanced. Low carbo, almost silky light oily ish mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture. I was enjoying this beer, thus nothing more than a short rating from Countbeer.

SimonBeer (112) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
(Drinking date: 19 August 2014) Aromas of banana, malt and a bit of alcohol. Looks good. Hazy, golden beer. Really delicious fresh, fruity taste, with the softness of banana. Medium carbonation, which is exactly good. Good balance between watery and silky body. Delicious beer! Total score: 4.0

Etiket: naar een recept van A. Verstraete en J. Vandenhove; te consumeren naar godsvrucht en vermogen, maar altijd met mate. Prima bier, waar de bedenkers met recht hun naam op durven zetten. 8,0%.

Hazy golden colour, with a two fingers head that doesn’t hold, No lace. Smell of fruits, oranges, pears, spices (is that allspice?). Sweet palate, oily, medium body. Taste of fruits, pear, spices. I don’t know why I think it would be great with some blue cheese.
