ExpendableHero (854) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pale gold, almost clear beer with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of apples and some spices. Tastes of candy sugar, rice/wheat, some banana, and lots of apple flavors. A bit too citric and sweet, kind of like an apple cider. Sweet, boozy finish. Effervescent with lively carbonation. Refreshing brew. While it is not a bad beer it does not represent the style too well. Average.

Bottle shared by Dan n thanks. Lasting light pink head over a clear red amber color. Big almond aroma but just a tuch of cherries. Sweet and a bit artificial sweetner taste.

No detail information about the hops and malts on the label. Clear golden beer with small white head, yeast is dominated, typical Belgian Style, thin, I miss here the body and the character from this beer, light herb, finish is very short, (I have 0.33l bottle with best-before L16/06/17 13:59)

Une très bonne bière, un houblon clair et un goût relevé font de cette bière, une excellente bière pour ma part. Avec 8.5 de degré elle s’apprécie à sa juste valeur !

Meh. This is not a bad beer, I’d say it’s trying to be a good belgian one, but it fails shortly to deliver something really pleasant to me. Alcohol level is interesting, but too present in mouth in my opinion. I can’t really enjoy this beer for that specific reason. Aftertaste is not especially remarkable, once again, a strong alcohol feeling all the way, but not much more, it tends to surprise you however considering its surprisingly drinkable beside the average taste, so watch out. You might like it, it’s not bad, especially if you enjoy strong beers, but it’s definitely not my cup of tea. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. clear deep gold colour lasting white head. sweetish Belgian ale aroma. It’s fine. A standard Belgian ale. No faults. Some hop some sweetness. It’s fine. Nothing exciting but perfectly drinkable. Would happily drink it.

Une bonne surprise ! Petite déception au service car elle mousse très peu mais a tout de même une belle couleur. 2ème déception au nez, très peu d’arômes. Par contre excellente surprise en bouche. Une belle touche citronnée, des bulles agréables, relativement sucrée et bien houblonnée. Manque peut-être un peu de corps mais cela lui donne une certaine légèreté. Belle longueur qui révèle une belle amertume, bref j’aime bien cette bière.

Elle présente des arômes légers et maltés ainsi que de faibles notes aigres-douces de citron. L'alcool est aussi perceptible et ne laisse aucun doute quant au caractère de cette bière. En bouche, les saveurs sont douces et ronde avec des tendances maltées et légèrement fruitées. Dans l'ensemble, elle est assez sucrée et seule la perception de l'alcool contraste avec la douceur au breuvage. C'est une bière très peu houblonnée, qui ravira les amateurs de bières rondes mais puissantes. En effet, les saveurs sucrées des malts équilibre la présence de l'alcool afin de proposer une bière harmonieuse et très plaisante.
