Wow. Quel équilibre! Typée abbaye avec des houblons plutôt aromatiques, je m’attendais à quelque chose de plus déroutant et pourtant ! Belle teinte claire, avec une mousse fine mais persistante, une amertume initiale bien présente, longue, mais vite équilibrée par des notes d’agrumes et de fleurs. Un peu d’épices herbacés, et une fin légèrement acidulée et durable. Son centille est loin d’être usurpé !

75cl bottle. Light hazy color. Thin persistent white head. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Aroma is super fruity, spicy, malty. Super balanced. Where are the 10%? Freaky_tiki (1223) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
Surprise treat from Mrs Tiki this evening. Decants a misty golden with beautiful serious layers of foam across the surface. Pungent aromas promise fresh flavour goodness. Grapefruit, bubblegum & lemongrass. Pine needles shine from the indulgent hops. Fresh dough, perfume, champagne. Fantastic balance. Subtle swirls of flavour. Dreamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is present but almost buried in the tasty goodness. My buddy Hippyhop nails it in his review when he suggests you have two options upon opening the bottle: share it with a friend or drink it solo & ascend to the heights a serious buzz. I’m working the latter option. Canmoore (479) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
Pours cloudy honey with a creamy white head. Aroma notes include apple, pear, banana, clove, and yeast. Tasting notes include apple, pear, peppery yeast, and a dry finish. Fantastic!

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 Bottle, shared by Mart. Clear golden yellow, medium white head. Nose is sweet, shortbread, yeast, fruit, hops, mild perfume. Flavor is more shortbread, mild yeast, fruit, sugar, pineapple, grassy notes in the finish with warm alcohol. Fizzy palate, but the flavors feel creamy.

Bottle share at RBB. Pour is very cloudy yellow with a small white head. Flavor and aroma of pale malt, belgian yeast, sugar, and crackers. Finish is similar with a tad of booze. huineman (688) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2016
75 cl bottle, served in snifter. Pours dim hazy golden with green tones. Head is white and doesn’t last too long. Nice lacing though. The nose is fantastic: intense aromas of ripe fruit (peach, apricot, mango, melon, grapefruit, pineapple, passionfruit, lemon) accompanied by sweet scents of biscuit, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel... There’s also a sub-layer of other luscious odors: honey, brioche, herbs... Incredibly complex. What about the mouthfeel? Let’s see: creamy, very soft, silky and with a carbonation so soft I’d describe it as velvety. Round flavors, all of them present and well balanced, with a great bitter long finish that lasts for more than two minutes. An amazing ale, congratulations to the brewers.
