COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Murky apricot coloured body. Remaining, bubbly white head, excellent lacing. Dusty hops and caramel malts to the nose. Well balanced taste of malty sweetness and dry, fruity hops. Hints of plums and apricots. Underlying yeasty fruitiness to the ending. Mostly disguised alcohol. Medium bodied. Likable (at home, Tromsø 09.05.2013).

visionthing (2607) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2013
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo. Pours pretty hazy amber with a lasting white head. Fruity, malty, caramely and spicy aroma with notes of flowers, honey, yeast and dried fruits. Sweet, fruity and flavourful with some hoppy notes and a light bitterness in the finish. Surprisingly nice and well balanced. Hint of alcohol is noticeable, but this is dangerously drinkable and certainly a brew a would like to drink again.

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from Malting Pot. Murky amber body with puffy white head. Nose is typical Belgian fare of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, brown sugar. Over the top in the alcohol department as well. Taste is dark fruits, plums, raisins, grapes, some spicy notes, with a smooth and creamy finish. Actually quite good.

McZythos (35) - Nancy, FRANCE - MAR 14, 2013
Lovely hazy amber colour. Interesting nose, there are hints of Orange and honey. Nose and taste is quite the same but there is an harsh alcohol and a sticky honey taste. This alcohol taste makes it a little bit outbalanced, there’s missing body overall and bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit disappointed...

JanLaursen (3025) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle, 75 cl, Very hazy golden amber with lots of yeasty sediments flaoting around. huge white head, good retention and quite some lace. Spicy, almost perfumed aroma with notes of dried fruits and yeast. Slightly alcholic flavor, sweet, yeasty and light hoppy. Full bodied, caobonation is rather lively. The but I’ve had from Saint Helene, but not that exciting,
