snzcujo (282) - - NOV 14, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, on 13/11/2012. Pours of hazy copper/brown color with a huge head. Aroma is mild and caramely sweet upfront, with hints of lollipops in the end. Taste is normal, with notes of dark fruits, caramel, hints of bread as well. Huge alcohol tone in the aftertaste. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wolfcarnival (151) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2015
bottle from beergeek shop. cracked it open at the weekend. holyshit it went everywhere. fuck that. even a little lift of the cap made it spray all over and i couldnt leave it long enough. actual colour was a hazy gold. smelled of bread, oranges, dried fruits. tasted surprisingly tart. sour citrus, apricot, belgian yeast then the familiar honeycaramel, banana, spices and boozy warmth coming through at the end. full and frothy mouthfeel. plenty goin on. actually i liked the taste a lot, but the experience was spoiled by the fuckin fizzzz

danielecamo (775) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. All’apertura, grande parte della birra fuoriesce a causa di una carbonazione eccessiva. Fortunatamente salvata visto vicinanza di bicchiere vuoti si passa all’assaggio. Aroma di frutti rossi, lampone, frutta sotto spirito, legnoso. Al palato corpo rotondo, sovracarbonata, frutta sotto spirito, lampone, ciliegia, acidità, leggero acetico. Scaldandosi da sentori di legno, sudore.

Butelka, warka do 05/2019. Na dziendobry - gushing, wzielo i wykipialo z butelki troche. po przzelaniu do pokala - kolosalna, biala, drobnopecherzykowa piana (niezmiescila sie butelka 0.33 w badz co nie badz pol-litrowym tulipie duvela) - jednak stosunkowo szybko sie dziurawi i opada, ladnie zostajac na szklei do samego konca wcale nielichy korzuszek na powierzchni piwa. Samo piwo jasne, zolte, lekko metne z plywajacymi drobinkami drozdzy (nie udalo sie delikatnie wszak nalac). Aromaty mocno ziolowe, przyprawowe, troche belgijskich drozdzy stajennych, slady karmelu, kapka owocowosci (suszone brzoskwinie czy morele, taki slodkoway klimat). W smaku slodko-kwasno-gorzkawe - bardzo fajna kombinacja, przywodzaca na mysl niektore saisony czy triple a nie belgian strong ale. Kwasnosc byc moze zwiazana z jakims lekkim zakarzeniem (pasuje do gushingu niby), ale mi nie przeszkadza, a wrecz pasuje. po lekkim ogrzaniu, nuty stajenne w aromacie oraz slodkosc w smaku nieco rosna. Z jednej strony bardzo fajne piwo, a z drugiej z problemami no i troche jakby zawod w zestawieniu z innymi pitymi z de Struise

Alusmamuts (934) - LATVIA - JUN 5, 2015
Managed to catch the evacuating beer. :) Golden hazy withextrenally rich offf-white and very nice in shape head. Sweet yeasty and sour aroma. Some kind of good lambic type sourness (should it be?), containing fruity notes as well of some yeasty fruitness on background.

Hugi (463) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Very huge head! Extremely carbonized. Besides that, hazy and orange-grayish appearance. Aroma: lactic acid, peach, some fruity esters and yeasty phenols. Taste: fresh and a bit hoppy, again a bit fruity and a bit sour. Full and very fizzy finish.

johndoughty (4234) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle.A proper gusher. Tried 2 bottles and both exploded like Vesuvius. Eventually I was left with half a glass to try. Yellow with a sharp edge but hard to rate as there was so little left to try. What a disappointment.

mateuszk (552) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Tried twice, first time it ended almost all on the floor. Second time I was lucky and it poured perfectly onto glass. Brown in colour with white stable head. In aroma malty with some funkiness and slightly sourness and with lots of fruits - banana, apricot, apples. In taste malty base, bananas, soem bubblegum and after it pleasant sourness. Low bodied, fizzy carbonated, medium to low bitter ending. Very pleasant Belgian A.le

Shark_Pants (428) - AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
Glad I read other reviews first because I then opened it over the sink, as about half the bottle immediately evacuated and ended up down the drain. Not a good start. When the remainder settles, it is a deep amber with lots of lacing. The aroma is like a tripel or belgian golden strong ale but with a wild yeast sourness as well. The taste is exactly as the smell suggests, with a very good balance between the sweetness and sourness, funkiness and acidity. This beer is quite an achievement but is really let down by the gushing.

Jävligt bra krona! Ljus grumlig färg! Svag doft av körsbär??!! Någon? Inte mycket doft. Lite körsbär?? Går i smaken tillsammans med en viss sötma & maltighet. Lätt kropp. Jävligt bra syra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
