Bire ambre artisanale du hobbybrewer Piet Salomez, quil dfinit comme une original belgian ale, donc peut-tre une spciale, si on lit entre les lignes... Pour ratebeer, comme elle titre 9 % abv, cest videmment une belgian strong ale... On connat la chanson!! Pour nous donc, soit une ambre forte, soit une spciale belge ... Couleur ambre roux abricot, avec un voile de matire. Bulles fines en colonne centrale. Mousse blanche avec texture uf battu en haut, puis nappage crmeux 3mm. Armes de poire, pomme mre, abricot, malt grill et caramel, pointe de muscade et spculoos. 1re bouche soyeuse veloute, avec une entre en matire dense, sur le malt caramel et du pain dpices. Arrire-bouche pleine, riche dautres nuances dont du pain complet et de la rglisse. 2me bouche la texture veloute, pleine, aux saveurs fondues. Grand quilibre malt/houblon. 3me bouche trs agrable sur malt et rglisse. Arrire-bouche sur le malt cara, un rien trop sucre. La longueur donne douceur, quilibre, et des nuances assez exotiques certains moments (do lappellation de original ale par le brasseur). La levure est douce, fine, sans aucune agressivit. Belle. Lalcool est bien progressif, efficace, mais question: naccrot-il pas le sucr? La finale est un rien trop sucre pour le genre. CONCLUSION: bire trs agrable, mais la finale est un peu monocorde et pour moi un rien trop sucre. Pour une fois, je dois admettre que la mme bire 8 % abv au lieu de 9 serait peut-tre mieux!!

Appears to be a storm in the glass, vibrant orange. Aroma of distant hay. Nice sour taste with an acidic edge with notes of citrus. Very sour finish, but no dryness evident. Very nice one.

Bottle at The Diamond.Poured a cloudy brown,like cloudy apple juice. The nose has some sourness to it. and was on the malty side. Interesting what I guess would be a combination beer, some american style hops, some sourness, all combined with belgian yeasts. Hoppy dry finish.Pretty tastey.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2009 (Bottled) Very hazy amber with a medium, tight and creamy head (well, after 3/4 of the beer had gushed out into the table and floor). Tart, caramely-fruity and herby-spicy, quite Orval-like aroma. Very fruity, plesantly tart flavor with some sweetness from the caramel malt, and a peppery-spicy, bitter-hoppy finish. Alcohol is fully hidden. Medium-bodied with slightly foamy carbonation. Need to resample this beautiful beer with a less "active" bottle. Update: tried another one, with the same results :(
