Blonde spéciale houblonnée, et comme dit le brasseur « rare quality brew ». On a placé la barre à 9,5 % abv. (on veut ou on ne veut pas....). Couleur blond doré foncé. Clarté nette . Bulles fines très vivantes partout. Mousse blanche épaisse bien crémeuse en haut. Arômes de pomme, poire, houblons très fins, avec une pointe de citron et de camomille. Texture soyeuse, quasi veloutée. 1ère bouche de houblons très fins et céréales. Arrière-bouche entière, fine, et de très grande longueur. 2ème bouche de houblons et malts fins, avec une pointe de banane verte. 3ème de grande fraîcheur, bouche pleine et malt en fond. Longueur très belle, constante avec des alternances entre les houblons. Levure adéquate, précise. Alcool très bien dosé, de haut niveau. Pour la finale, on clôture en finesse... Très grande bière parce qu’elle répond parfaitement au lourd cahier des charges qu’elle s’était donnée. 5. (son premier...)

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pale cloudy yellow color with a huge aired white head. Good retention. The head never disappears completely leaving a small layer and many lacings around S: Delicious perfume of hops: Citrus and earthy. Honey, caramel malts and strong bready Belgian style yeasts in the end T: Follows the nose. Malts, honey and hoppy bitterness. Quite dry and bready. Hops are again, citrus and a bit earthy. Belgian style yeasts "completing the party". Extremely balanced and well done M: Medium body and carbonation. A bit molasses and a considerable bitterness. Not much alcohol could be noticed despite the 9.5% ABV O: High drinkability. Delicious bitterness. Reminded me a Duvel overloaded with hops. Same impression that I’ve had with the "La Chouffe Dobbelen IPA". [ BA Review @ 11/7/2010 ]

bonkiedeaap (281) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from the Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a yellow / golden color which is a little hazy, and a lot of bubbles. The aroma is rich of hops and some hints of fruits, spices and a little citrus. The taste is full, warming but overall a nice bitterness is very well noticable in the end. The finish is dry, long and the bitterness is long noticable. Reminds me of a tripel beer, but there is a little too much alcohol in it, and that is well noticable. Further it’s a pretty nice beer.

Bottle. Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is strong boozy with faint orange hints and grain. Taste is malty, toffee, again highly alcoholic, fruity yeast. Yeasty caramel finish. Too strong alcohol notes to really make it in my opinion.

dreamer (97) - PORTUGAL - SEP 16, 2014
Golden color, very cloudy and with many floating particles of yeast. The initial head and carbonation are medium, but with enough retention. Body is medium and creamy. Aroma is citric orange and lemon, malt and caramel. Taste is citric, quite bitter and a slightly sweet. It’s a beer with very complex flavors and aromas, quite hoppy for the style, but very balanced with a long, dry aftertaste.
