UPDATED: SEP 19, 2011 Kedvenc. (Az egyik.) A vád max. az lehetne vele szemben, hogy nőies, mert olyan kis finomkodó, semmi rikító vagy brutális élmény, ezzel szemben: tökéletes harmonia és kifinomultság jellemzi. A pohara, illetve a virágos váza-szerú "korsója" igazán embertpróbáló, ahogy a pohár keskeny nyakában a habdugó mögül a nyakadba zúdul a feltorlódott, aranyban játszó narancsos vörös nedű. Többször teszteltem: sokkal jobban ízlik ezekből, mint bármi más kehelyből. . * One of my favourites. The only thing you could say against this beer is that it’s feminine because it’s somewhat too genteel: this beer is not a harsh or brutal experience, but it’s characterized by perfect harmonies and refinement. It’s not easy to drink it from its accompanying thin-necked glass, as the golden-orange tinted liquid breaking free from under the head of foam can easily end up on your chest. But after several tests I can confirm that the beer tastes much better from its proper glass than from any other kind of vessel.

digopossobon (285) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2014
3Ş da noite... A maior curtiçăo é o copo diferenciado e a galera olhando desconfiada! Fora isso, a cerva é boa também! A coloraçăo é âmbar e turva, com efervescęncia contínua, que dá um efeito bem interessante e com o copo, único. O creme é acastanhado e denso, bela formaçăo. Aroma bastante suave. O gosto é bastante complexo. Percebi noz moscada, mel de flores diversas, bem suave, sem acidez. Retrogosto herbal. Cereja. Até o garçom ficou com o olho comprido! hehehehehehe!

goleiro (136) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Aromat i smak dość odmienne - zapach belgijski, nieco alkoholowy, triplowy. Smak złożony, lekko karmelowy, słodowy i landrynkowy. Bardzo ciekawy. Piana niska, barwa bursztynowo-miedziana, przyjemny posmak. Bardzo dobre belgijskie piwo.

kacyper (277) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Aromaty karmelowe, słodowe, alkohlowe, belgijskie, cukierkowe, landrynkowe. W smaku alkoholowe lekko kwaśne. Odczycie w ustach wyklejające, gęste. Overall: Jedno z dziwniejszych piw jakie dane było mi pić.

Aroma: Dried fruits and a lot of sweet malts. Taste: Very sweet, raisins, candied fruits and a little bit of clove on aftertaste. Really full body and a little oily texture. Nice head, great lacing and average carbonation. Very good beer. Price [Warsaw, Poland] 13PLN (bottle).

Levemente amarga e residual seco. Uma boa opçăo por ser uma cerveja de cor cobre de sabor leve.

ferit (132) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2014
Mooi donker bruin donker goud. Schuim middelmatig. Br van het bier af ruik je al dat hij een zeer fruitige geur heeft. Stroperig en zoet in de mond. Maar toch verfrissend. Voor sommige kan hij te zoet zijn maar ik vind hem lekker. Toch mis ik iets bitters. Een van de betere ales die ik gedronken heb.

milo91hd (113) - Lecce, ITALY - SEP 3, 2014
Bottiglia. Colore ambrato carico con una schiuma cremosa fine e persistente. L’aroma richiama malto e spezie mentre al palato attacco in maniera dolce con caramello e frutta, finisce invece con un bel amaro caldo per niente fastidioso. Corpo medio con carbonazione bassa. Peccato non averla bevuta nel suo bicchiere caratteristico.

martjoobolut (731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 25.10.2015. Pours red amber with off-white head. The small head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruits, yeast, potatoes, burnt sugar. Flavor is very sweet, caramel, malt, burnt sugar, fruits, and yeast. Finish is malty sweet with some alcohol. Overall: well made, but not among my favorites.
