COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Josh’s translation of the French description: La Fringante is a deluxe, triple-fermented beer born of a unique strain of yeast which gives it an unexpected finesse. A champagne-like effervescence, its vigourous presence in the mouth underlines its markedly strong personality of balanced flavours of spices, malt and hops.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2004
The aroma is sweet containing notes of flowers, yeast, and elderflower. The color is hazy orange and it has a fine but disappearing head. The flavor is very sweet with dominating notes of honey, but also yeast, flowers, citrus, and corriander. It has a dry end from hops and corriander. The palate is quite good. Thanks to Alex (fiulijn) for trading me this one.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy pilsener golden with a small, white head. Very distinct yeasty aroma. Quite full and potent body with lots of alcohol. Flavour is sweetish malty with a yeasty note and - again - a pronounced alcohol feel. Solid if not exactly overly sophisticated. Typical Unibroue. 181105

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2009
Bottled. Hazy golden colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is malts, some citrus fruits, yeast, spices and quite much earthy notes. Flavour is caramel malts, citrus fruits, yeast, spices and some mild wooden notes. Alcohol shows as a slight burning note. Overall a very nicely balanced Belgian Strong.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2003

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 2005-03-19, 2 years old bottle, 7-3-8-4-16=38
Both taste and aroma are malty and dry, with a late residual sweetness, a lot of coriander and a light fruitness. Warming

Hazy gold color, poor head. The simple edge of a Strong Belgian Ale, a bit fruity, but not able to fully hide the alcohol

2002-11-25, 9-5-8-4-16
Light amber color, cloudy; giant rocky head. Fresh aroma, fruity, citrus fruits, spicy (pepper and coriander). Fresh taste, malt, pretty sweet, good body strength, perfectly hiding the high alcohol content; spicy (pepper and coriander). I would consider it a Grand Cru (actually I don’t know if it contains wheat), for the spicy, fresh, citrusy character; really good example, but not impressive.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2008
Another Belgium strong ale from unibroe.. pours unclear golden with a white foam. Sweet aroma of fruit & yeast. Good & solid mouthfeel. Some spices (coriander) & WARMTH from alcohol. Nice!
