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.

La Kwak č una birra ambrata da 8% vol. con una schiuma ricca, caratterizzata da un perlage finissimo, fine e pesistente. Al naso malto caramello, fruttata e leggermente speziata. In bocca i toni caldi evidenziano un primo impatto di caramello, di malto, e di frutta matura finendo con una nota delicatamente amara.

Lore (1659) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 9, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 incredibly dense, long lasting brownish head in which not the bubbles go up, but rather the drops of beer fall down; dark golden colour and very heavy malty taste with the sweetness of high alcohol content; it is definitely one of the best strong ale

Je la considčre comme la meilleure bičre de belgique. Goűt prononcé de céréale et de houblon. Bičre de caractčre.

Lele (279) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 ASPETTO: ambrato color whiskey, limpido, bellissimo, con schiuma leggermente giallognola, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: decisamente fruttato e maltato, leggermente speziato. GUSTO: dolce, fruttato (frutta matura). Retrogusto persistente con chiare note di crosta di pane, fenomenale. Corpo strutturato, carbonizzazione media, con bollicine finissime. CONCLUSIONE: birra appagante. Batte soprattutto sui sentori fruttati e maltati, ma non stanca, nonrisulta mai stucchevole.

an excellent beer. reddish clear amber color and a full bodied aroma of buttery melded malts. The flavor has a good kick to it with a sweet malt flavor and a slight fizz mouth feel.

Farbe: Bernstein Schaum: wie ein gutes Weizen, top. Nase: fein gerösteter Malz, säuerlich Geschmack: sehr mild und rund auf der Zunge, malzig, süß. Im Abgang dann wieder die Röstaromen und ein bisschen Getreide dazu. Ganz leicht kommt noch was Bitteres im Nachgeschmack dazu. Sehr runde Geschmacksnoten, überhaupt sehr vollmundig ohne wirklich schwer zu sein. Ich schwöre, das geniale Glas beeinflusst die Bewertung nicht, aber ich könnte darin baden!

From Hipercor. In La Trappe glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 1x11. Delicious sweet sugary taste. The alcohol is noticeable but doesnt bother
