Bottle. The aroma of yeast, light fruity. The white creamy head is small with a long duration, the body is dark orange. The taste is fruity and yeasty, light sour and a little bit like bread. The body is creamy, medium strong and with a soft carbonation.

Une bire grand cru fait toujours plaisir voir et bien sr dguster... Bon niveau abv de 9 %. Couleur ambre claire. Texture comportant un lger voile de levure. Bulles par dizaines en colonne au centre. Mousse beige crmeuse qui nappe le breuvage. Armes de malt caramel, houblon fleuri, prune blanche, pain gris, pelure de poire. 1re bouche soyeuse avec un beau complexe malt/houblon. Arrire-bouche pleine, savoureuse avec un peu de cannelle. 2me avec de belles nuances sur plusieurs malts. Arrire-bouche complexe. 3me dune grande ampleur: malt, miel, fleur des bois, pice muscade. Arrire-bouche longue, harmonieuse. La longueur propose un grand ensemble malt, de trs haut niveau. Superbe. La levure est douce, belle, mielleuse. Lalcool fait un magnifique travail de soutien. La finale est avec des accents dpices dans un accord malt/houblon superbe. Conclusion: un trs grand uvre, un chef doeuvre. Une bire vraiment de 1er cru, ou de 1er brassin si on prfre...

LIght in color and pretty in the glass. There is a lot of brut champagne on this beer. Plenty of delicate fruit on the nose, but terribly light scent. On the tongue, bright alcohol, slick palate and drying finish. Sour fruits and light caramel malt.

Dit vond ik persoonlijk niet zo goed. Niet veel speciaals aan de smaak. Dan is de donkere beter

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Courtesy SoLan. Amber-orange color with a mostly white head. Sweet sickly honeyed aroma, light spice, pretty basic Belgain aromas. The taste has the same sickly sweet character, with a ton of candi sugar flavor. Also had a thick almost chalky mouthfeel that wasnt too appealing.

Troebel donkergeel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zoet en fruitig, vanille, perzik en appels. Erg goed bier, smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a large, dense white head. Some sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma was bready with some fruity esters and a yeasty earthiness. Flavor was mild caramel and bread, some fruit (cherries and raisins), some yeast, mild bitterness. Mouthfeel was creamy. Alcohol was well hidden. NIce, but nothing terribly special.
