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.

Bouteille de 750ml au Saint-Bock. Bière blonde dorée légèrement trouble qui a formé une superbe dentelle au parois. Un nez simple de malt pilsner un peu sucré. Le sucre candi fait des ravages. Des traces d’épices et de houblon noble sont perceptible. Une bouche un peu sucré mais tout de même bien appuyé par des houblons.

(Keg at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20131030) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, honey and perfumes. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, honey, Belgian style yeast, clove, malts and harsh bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A bit harsh tripel but still ok.

15cl. at Brassigaume 2013. Pours hazy orange in colour with a nice white and persistent head. The aroma is sweet, fruity and with a light yeast touch. Medium carbonation and mouthful body. Flavour quite bitter but well balanced. Overall, a nice beer.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Color: hazy amber/blond beer with particles of yeast small, carbonation and small white head. Smell: sweet taste, very strange with malt and yeast. Taste: high malt domination with big yeast presence. No hoppy taste. Aftertaste: caramel, sugar cane and some alcohol with malt.

tfredvik (1501) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2013
Cloudy orange body with a white head that laces the glass well. Moderate aroma with quite much malts, light yeast, fruits, alcohol and traces of caramel. A bit boring. The taste is moderate sweet, very light acidic and very light bitter. The flavours include some unusual (for the style) hoppy notes: the fruity notes are rather tropical with notes of peach. Also yeast and vague caramel. The alcohol is masterly hidden. Medium body and smooth texture despite the rather lively carbonation. Some dryness in the finish. Not terribly exciting, but still a decent brew.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 17 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Alna, Oslo]

ClubGonzo (4897) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from trade with Foffern (because apparently, Vinmonopolet was sold out and I was too late... :-P). Pours a dark hazy orange-straw-hued body with a large creamy off-white head. Nose is sweet grains, toffee, Belgian ale yeast and hints of clove and banana. Taste is very sweet and sugary grain-malt tones, clove, banana and hints of alcohol and raisins. Dry finish with a bit of stickiness in the aftertaste, along with warming alcohol. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not too bad, but a bit too sweet and not really impressive in any other way either.

espenra (942) - Kurland, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2013
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. No date or batch info. It poured a moderately dark orange colour with a medium big white foamy head. A decent amount of carbonation. Aroma is fresh and fruity. Sweet and notes of belgian yeast. Malty with notes of bread. Some alcohol. Flavour is very bitter, but not hoppy. Notes of grass, citrus, bread and some malt. Short aftertaste. Aroma is better than flavour unfortunately.

RexTalionis (3233) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy orange in color with a fluffy white head. Fruits-in-a-box mixed with some herbal and grassy notes in aroma. Feels a bit like some fruity mash here. Interesting. Pretty smooth mouthfeel. Slightly spicy notes actually in taste at first with hints of grassy bitterness and a light yeasty touch as well. Easy to drink and the aromas and flavors seems be in quite nice order. Nice, slightly bitter and sweet fruity touch towards the finish.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle, 25cl. Unclear, golden to orange in color, with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma is typical Belgian, sugary, fruity and with a yeast touch. Quite bitter flavor, grassy and lightly piney, with a malty touch and yeast note. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Long bitter finish. Quite pleasant actually. 130906
