Rather malty sweet, but this has lots of malty and hoppy elements which makes interesting sipping. Herbal, almost medical. A bit oily.Not totally convinced I’d have this with food. thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Cavé Bulles, Paris.fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Pours light hazy golden with a big, frothy/bubbly white head. Lovely fruity aroma, green apples, peach, apricot, crisp sweetish malts. Highish carbonation, dryish and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine crisp malts, light doughy, some biscuity notes. Pepper, pineapple, peach and pine. Fine lingering dryness in the finish. Nice.

Cloudy light amber color; medium sized compact head. Nice aroma, fruity but delicate, light aroma of yellow jam, some animal, musk character too. The mouthfeel is light and drier than expected; delicate toffee flavor with a well balanced fruity hopping, and just dome more dry resins in the final.

Hazy amber color, with generous creamy head. Interesting to taste it side-to-side with the Psychedelia, this one evidently reveals a more complex body structure, more malt, some residual sweetness, still a good hopping level, fruity hops, but less hop character (like the pungent and sweaty mix of the Psychedelia).
Very good beer.

Hazy amber color, bright, with medium sized compact head. Toffee aroma, with mild, citrusy hops. Good malt and toffee flavor, with moderate residual sweetness, delicate; indeed there is some similarity with the Mikkeller Single Hop ales brewed at the same facility; pleasant hopping, well balanced, elegant, never aggressive, with light resins and fruitiness.
Very nice, also for it’s rare harmony.
Big tropical-and-berry fruit hop aroma and flavor, with moderate bitterness and light sweetness. Interesting, quite hoppy, highly drinkable. Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2012
Medium fluffy white head, vast on top, airy beneath.
Changes slowly into a sticky lacing on top of a hazy orange colored beer.
The smell immediately made me think I was dealing with an IPA, apricot, nectarine, peach and even some prunes, hint of gass, hint of pils malts and some floral herbs.
Taste fresh hops, lightly but still dominating present: hop flowers, hop fruits: light peach, exotic fruit, light bitter, slight hint of grape fruit, creamy, some malts, a very light dryness some grassy herbs.
Aftertaste is hoppy with less fruit notes than in the actual taste, now it is more floral hops and grass and a light light bitterness.
Low carbo, soft lightly blown mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Smooth, nice and tasty. Good brew.

Bouteille 33 cl de L’Empire du Malt - Clermont-Ferrand (F). Ambrée claire, mousse blanc-cassé crémeuse et durable. Nez houblonné sur douceur et fruité malté. La bouche est douce, malt, caramel, levure et une amertume sans excès, des notes de citron, confiture d’orange amère, pointe de pamplemousse. Tout s’accorde et s’équilibre parfaitement. Enfin un mariage qui tient le coup ! C’est de la provocation ! jamestulloch (4330) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Hazy golden body with a large off-white head. Lively carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of sour lime, grapefruit, lemon juice and cream soda. Flavour of pineapple and tangy yeast with the faintest hint of spice. Medium body with a dry, sticky mouthfeel. Nice fizz. A citrus explosion not quite balanced out by the Belgian yeast and spice notes. tom10101 (6267) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Beautiful slightly hazy golden with a medium mostly lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is of fruity hops along Belgian yeast, some spices and herbal notes. Taste is slightly sweet with grapefruits, spices, a good malt backbone, herbal notes and a moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Spot on carbonation. Dry finish. Very good Belgian Ale. Drinkable and refreshing. Tasty! Just the right amount of spices and nice herbal presence. Stuartyboy (1760) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2014
