(33 cl, Embouteillée le 23/06/2011. Une dégustation offerte par rodenbach99) La surprise de la soirée. Une belle robe ambrée et sa mousse durable. Une belle dentelle. Un conditionnement satisfaisant. Un beau nez de caramel et de houblons, une touche fruitée qui provient de la levure? Des saveurs caramélisées qui sont stimulées par des houblons au profil herbeux. Une bonne sensation en bouche. Un corps, des bulles et une texture bien enlignés. Une finale davantage maltée que houblonnée. Simplement agréable.

Reddish-brown, white head and nice visible carbonation. Nose has citrus, lychee, some toast, fruitcake. Something soapy in there as well.
Taste is fruity, nice citrus, berries, medium bitter with a tart and long finish. Medium body with above-average carbonation.
Overall: nice beer, but the soapy thing doesn’t do it for me. If it had a bit heavier maltyness it would be more balanced. Still enjoyable though, and definately interesting. visionthing (5334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours lightly clouded amber with a huge, frothy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, spices and malt with earthy notes. Smells a bit strange, but quite pleasant taste. Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 12, 2012

hazy chestnut amber with a fluffy tan tinged hea. Lively bottle. Sweet toffee, sharp noble hops, high carbonation, bitter, touch of mandarin followed by nettle, rich and crisp.
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This hazy dark amber-brown beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has pineapple and peppery hop flavours, almond and toffee notes with a slight sugary sweet, extremely dry and tart finish.

Yeasty and lively beer with a body of caramalt and bitter hops. Bit grassy and dry palate. Like a yeasty saison. Palme (4807) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2011
0.33l bottle. What a head! Probably the biggest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. It also has a near murky dark nutty-red-brownish body, but the gigantic, everlasting and fluffy beige head really made my day! The aroma is filled with balsamic and dark wood-tones mixed with some sweet caramel wrapped in Belgian yeast. Not horrible at all. After waiting some minutes the head has come down to a reasonable level and it’s possible to have a sip. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied with a light oily mouthfeel. Flavors are quite weird with lots of leather and licorice. Not the normal kind of licorice but more like sipping on the licorice-root itself. Lots of wood blended with something tart and yeasty. Bitter and herbal finish with hints of cocoa in the aftertaste. Weird stuff, but I kinda liked it. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2011
0.33L bottle. Slightly hazed deep ruby red body. A finger of dense greyish-blond bubbles on top. Complex aroma. Vinous fruitiness, English fruit-cake, toasted peppery malts, earthy and spiced hops. Nice! More than medium full. A deep, refined malt-sweetness. Solid bitterness. Fine tones of dark dried fruits, mild spices and faint dark bread. Creamy texture. Flavorfull, yet in perfect balance. A really fine one. _angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy off-white head that clings to the glass and leaves some lacing on it while slowly dissipating. Smell is sweet with sweet fruits like plums and raisins, caramel, alcohol and some hints of peaches and citrus. Taste is malty, bitter and slightly metallic with minerals, resin, dandelions and pine. Finish is dry and very bitter. Weird one this one, not sure what I think… RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Muddy bronze beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is lightly spiced with a good degree of bitterness. The flavour is more like a Belgian beer than an English beer with heavy bitterness, some spice and a good degree of maltiness. Overall a good beer.
