2008 bottle that tastes slightly stale, slightly tart, and peppery with hints of honey. Kind of thin and lacking depth.

Blonde trouble forte pétillance de visu mais non au palais, col épais, crémeux et persistant. Un rien métallique, notes fruitées, légère amertume houblonnée, présence de coriandre, l’alcool se fait assez bien sentir. Agréable mais sans rien de spécial.

Beautiful fluffy head on this, but the rest tastes like a glorified lager. Very light in color, with lots of malt and grain presence. Slight bitter, musty aftertaste. I’m not impressed,(but a good looking label too)

Meh, not a lot of taste in what I expected more from it. Something is missing. Not sure what. Wouldn't recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 33cl. Dorée, col épais et crémeux blanc tenant au verre. Col est très réactif. Arôme donne de suite le bouquet fleuri des houblons. Note ici ce coté neutre rappelant le Golding ou Hallertau avec bouqueut de houblon fermentés. Palais est houblonné oscillant sur des notes épicées sur une pointe citronnée. Le tout reste léger mais avec tout de même un palais réchauffant des 7.5%. Effervescence moyenne pour des malts qui eux aussi tirent plus sur le pâle, pilsner avec sur la fin tjrs ce profil amer fruité des houblons. Une version revue à la hausse d’une pils restant très belge. Ok mais sans plus.

(bottle) pours a hazy golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of herbal hops, cooked vegetables, earth, powdered sugar and lemons, with a hint of sweet spices. flavour is slightly more mellow and malty, with a hint of straw, powdered sugar and alcohol. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Fläschchen mit McTapps verköstigt. Erwartet wurde ein Duvel-Double, doch am Ende ging es eher in Richtung Oettinger Export. Laff, kaum Aromen, nicht mal belgische Hefe in der Nase. Sehr schwacher Auftritt, dafür umso gefährlicher, da man die Umdrehungen nicht mal annähernd geschmeckt hatte.

McTapps (4083) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2013
Clear golden colour with low ehad and smooth body. Nose of light malt. Taste of strong alcohol, cloves, lettuce, mild apples, malt and cereals. Not that bad but also no special outstanding taste or aroma. Boring.

Not bad, though not quite as good as its closest cousin, Duvel. Not nearly a effervescent, but with a solid spice body, some citrus, and a great body.

The label is one of the weirdest I’ve come across. A beer bottle named Sloeber showing me the name on my beer bottle which is also Sloeber. Maybe it was a good concept but the final result looks quite amateur-ish if you ask me. So what do we have here? A belgian strong pale ale, that pours a white thin head of one finger, in my Chimay chalice. Colour is, well, pale golden. I can witness a thin fountain of bubbles rising from the center of my glass to the top. Aroma is light and pleasant, fruity, sure, but I can’t put my nose into it exactly. One time I think I smell bananas, the next I smell plums. Whatever it is, is very faint though. Taste is fruity, with some plums and other dark fruits, but there is unfortunately a slight metallic aftertaste. Full and thick on the bodybody, with just the right amount of carbonation. Overall, a very good sample of the kind.
