77ships (11480) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2012
75 cl. bottle sampled @ Modeste 2012 - apparently they do the whole Champagne process in house because shipping back and forth to France would be to expensive, brewed with Champagne yeast - bottle is slowly foaming once opened, the Champagne yeast is lively - dense bubbles in the white head, body looks bit Champagne like - spritzy nose, ester heavy, orange rinds, champagne alcohol coming through, yeast - light Champagne booze coming through in the taste, heavy on esters, the yeast, spice full, floral - carb. heavy, aggressive - once highly critical of the style, this one I can admire - big hit with the company, non-beergeeks, every day drinkers, one took a bottle home, this impresses easily all pallets, good stuff

Sample from 750 ml bottle shared by saavy1982. Pours a clear golden color with a huge bubbly white head. The aroma is dry champagne yeast, mild funk, fruity, floral with some background pale malts. The flavor emphasizes the champagne yeast, tart, light fruits, floral, dry, spritzy mouth feel. This was a delightful change of pace from many of the other big beers running around. The 10% is well hidden.
