Bottle at mondial. Fabulous head is loose and luscious and long lasting. Hazy golden body. Aroma is fabulously dry and hoppy with tangerine highlights and well developed nutty pale malt undertones. Smells promising. Too carbonated and gassy but the flavors are so much fun with kumquat, candied orange peel, and distinct curacao finish. Lively and fun.

Fountaining foam to fast dwindling fluffy white head over clear metallic, pale copper (rest of...) beer. Vegetable nose with cooked celery and lots of coriander, fake citrus, yeasty, spiced-sweet, dried apricot. Coriander onslaught on top of toast(ed malts). Orange and apricots on alcohol. Harsh, intimidating and in the end, pretty unrefined. Some strange (milk)chocolate touches upon swallowing. Fizzy carbonation. Quite slick but only medium bodied. Alcoholwarming. Another one to add to http://international.hoppress.com/2011/08/03/wine- one that had no doubt been better if they had kept brewing beer, instead of mocking Champagne. txs to the generosity of Chris Achouffe and the people @ Geers!

750 ml. bottle shared with Quevillon.The color is a hazy honey with a thick beige head and a lot of lace and very bubbly. The aroma is of malt sweet fruits. The taste is of malt sweet fruits like oranges,bananas and others, with some spices, yeast a good mix. The 10% alcohol is not that noticeable as to take away from all the nice ingredients. It leaves a very pleasing taste in the mouth. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 13, 2012

Light straw color with lots of nice bubbly carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet lightly citrus, super subtle Belgian yeast notes. Banana orange peel. The carbonation helps bring a lot of really pleasant aromas to the forefront. Flavor is clean, mouth coating, mild, pear apple, citrus, light pepper. This is an amazing beer.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Huge pop when the cork came out pouring golden with a huge white head. The aroma is delicious sweet candy Belgian yeast and light earthy green notes. The flavor is a mixture between a smooth Belgian golden and champagne from the yeast, not dry but a bit sweet. reebtogi (6385) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
750ml corked bottle listed at 11%ABV pours a bright golden color with plenty of white bubbly head which settles and leaves a thin lacing behind in clumps. Aroma is light malts with a bit of yeast and fruit. Taste is malty sweetness with some fruit and yeast and light hop bitterness. Carbonation is lively and body is medium providing a nice tingle on the palate. Alcohol is disguised well and this is one damn good brut. jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2011
