Bière de dégustation, son apparence nous égare. Ses houblons alsaciens très fins lui confèrent un bouquet délicat, fruité et floral. La rondeur que lui confère le malt la rend très douce et masque son fort taux d’alcool qui réchauffe la gorge sans perturber les sens. Elle est noble, subtile et enivrante, à déguster donc avec prudence.

330 ml bottle. BB J/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Hazy brown colour with a small off-white head. Came out of the bottle like a missile. What I was left with was a 1/3 of the beer. Yeast, malt, caramel sweetness and some dryness in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, hops, moderate bitterness, dryness, some malt and more yeast. Seems to be a bit unbalanced and too lively.

Vignale (2242) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. En lite sötare trippel som ändå har tillräcklig beska för att balansera väl. Krämigt skum och munkänsla och inte alls så stickig och småbublig som tripplar ofta är. Blommig med hibiskus, apelsinblommor och nektar och lite lagom sötestrig, jäst, syltade apelsinskal, rostade kastanjer (påminner lite om kastanjeöl jag druckigt), smörkakor. Trevlig trots att den kanske var lite väl söt.

kraddel (3728) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2014
Pours clear , dark blonde / light amber . Good and resistant white head . Smell is sharp bitter . Some hoparoma . Maltyness ( hidden ) . Taste is sharp , yeasty, some bitterness. A clear malty background . Very nice taste , but as soon as you pour in the last half of the bottle, the beer gets visually ruined by big yeastflakes ...

75 cl, vlokkerig oranje met schuimige witte kraag. aroma van citrus, hooi/stro, gistig en sinaasappel, maar lekker aroma !. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, sterk, redelijk fruitig van sinaasappel/mandarijn, ambermouten, curacao. medium body, glad van textuur, fruitig in de afdronk, maar wel een stevig gistbommetje.... en gewoon alles heerlijk opgedronken !

33cl bottle.Pours reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malts and some dry yeast, slightly reminds me of an Orval. Taste is malts, dough, bread, yeast, spices (black pepper). Dry bitter yeasty finish. Strange but quite good.

Bottle split in Craigs room, Borefts Day 2 after party tasting, 27/09/14 thanks to the person who brought this number. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is boozey, spice, toffee, dark fruits, a little raw. Taste comprises bitter orange, shades of darker fruit, spice, booze, caramel. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Sub par, doesn’t deliver for the ABV.

freretoc (904) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 25, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la maison achetée au Super U de Roche les Beauprés, couleur abricot mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence, en bouche grosse attaque sur le fruit confit et la fleur blanche et fin de bouche sur la levure, un peu trop fort la dernière attaque.
