Bierdimpfe (601) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2017
Hazy dark straw, almost golden color, with storming activity and floating yeast. Thick creamy and frothy beige 4 finger island head, lasting around 15 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of sweet grains, caramel, barley, lemon, apples, apricot, Belgian yeast, floral spices. Dense bready malts, a good level of fruity sweetness, balanced with lots of zest and a sharp citrusy feel. Slick and smooth medium body with almost champagne like carbonation, highly crispy. Medium strength finish, sharp lemony yeast, a bit dry, hints of clove and banana, with a soft butterscotch feel and flowery hops. I find it almost like a cross between a pale ale and saison. The taste is very nice, weel balanced and intensified, with the proper highly fresh Belgian sensation. Overall excellent quality craft, while I find it lacks the complexity of a closer Belgian interpretation, like the Raftman.

Bottle. The beer has a strong, fruity taste with plenty of Belgian yeastiness. Plenty of foam.

Poured from a bottle on New Years Eve. Pours cloudy yellowish orange. Sadly a skunky aroma and taste.

Luvystypotables (1805) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Aroma of cloves and Belgian yeast, pours a hazy gold color without much of a head. Tastes of cloves with a hint of bananas. Medium body with a clove finish.

En bouche cest trs typ bire belge dabbaye : pic et fruit. Belle robe jaune et un nez on reconnait les levures typiques des bire type abbaye. Efficace et rafraichissante.

BrunTremens (10) - Saint-Alban, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Bire sans prtention qui pourrait se tarer dtre lune des meilleurs Blonde (de type belge) du Qubec. Onctueux et arien collet de mousse blanche, forte effervescence qui dure trs longtemps dans le verre, armes festifs et varis dananas, vanille, houblons, banane, pommes verte, caramel et sucre. Suprmement rafraichissante et accessible malgr son haut taux dalcool. Peut faire songer a La chouffe (de belgique) en version plus lgre tant dans les gots que les armes. Dcouverte mystifiante a laquel je reviens trs souvent et qui est une loquente preuve quune bire peut tre fascinante sans donner dans la surenchre des saveurs.

Trs bonne bire. Beaucoup de got, mais simple en bouche. Parfaite en appritif.

Bire qui est une rplique dune Belge classique. Blonde et trouble affichant une tte importante, dense et onctueuse. Nez floral, sucr et moyenne levur. En bouche, la sur-abondance de sucre me rend la bire dsagrable boire. Les saveurs sont suffisamment complexes pour que tout ce sucre puisse tre rduit sans en altrer ni le corps ni la finition. Une chance que leffervescence est importante. Elle rend la bire plus facile boire mais le tout demeure inutilement lourd et sans relle profondeur. Bire inintressante mon avis.
