A peine servie elle développe dans le verre un arome puissant de houblon herbacé. L’amertume plus prononcée est sa caractéristique principale. L’usage d’un houblon noble, le Saaz, lui confère pourtant une amertume peu agressive. La bière est sèche en bouche, servie bien fraiche elle est très rafraichissante.

Bottle from Elie. Many thanks. Blond colour, white foam. Refreshing and hoppy. Light malty. Crispy and easy drinkable. Good!

Patrząc na pozytywne opinie innych, którzy mieli okazję spróbować, doszedłem do wniosku, że chyba trafiłem na felerną sztukę... Wyglądała całkiem w porządku. Pianka była, kolor żółty... Ale niemiłosiernie dawało po nozdrzach apteką. A picie czegoś o smaku bandaży, nie należy do przyjemności... Oceniam słabo. Jak będzie okazja spróbować ponownie, zweryfikuję swoją opinię.

Très légère mais avec une jolie pointe d’acidité citronée qui s’épuise tranquilement sur le palais. C’est gentil mais en même temps très sympa. Un peu plus de corps serait bienvenu ... Sans doute, parfait en plein été avec un sorbet sur une jolie terrasse !

330 ml bottle. BB S/15. From saveur-biere.com.
Hazy mid-brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Fruity and perfumy hops, mild bitterness, sweetness, cardboard dryness and dryish malt in the aroma. Yeast, grassy hops, cardboard dryness and dryish malt in the flavour. A bit watery.

triple_belgian (9) - Rodange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
75cl bottle from Cora Messancy Belgium - opened at home. Pours light yellow semi-hazy with very small head. Hoppy scent with lemon. Taste likewise with fresh hops and lemon/citrus, good carbonation. Very refreshing when chilled in fridge. Nice beer not too strong for a Belgian (5.5%)

Alengrin (2879) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Blonde session ale with sensual label but rather neutral aroma of grassy hops, lemon zest, sour apple, hay and young cheese; restrained fruity taste, smooth and light in the malt department, some spicy notes, pretty long bitter finish - but I doubt if this should be classified as an English-style bitter, as has apparently been done here.

Bottle at Hoppy Loft. Light, bit hoppy, kiwi and lychee, yohhurt. Interesting. Nice.

Vignale (2366) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Söt mustig doft med jäst och en lätt parfymig doft väldigt lik knoppande kastanj. En annorlunda kombo av brittisk bitter med bra maltkropp med viss sötma, nötter, kastanj och gräsig örtig beska och belgisk jäst. Det funkar i a f för mig och skapar en annorlunda och intresant smakbild.s

330 mml bottle tasted on 28/06/2014. The hops predominance this beer in the aroma and the taste. Carbonation is Ok and aftertaste is a little bitter but nice. Next one please!
