DerWeg (1774) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2018
Five year old bottle, will it be dead? Nope... this is in very nice shape. Definitely ginger-y, a noted aspect of the specialized yeast. Very delicious stuff, definitely has a nice rounded balance of gentle phenolic spiciness, hints of vanilla and sandalwood, and a complicated suggestion of mostly sweet (eg. pear) and some tart & tropical fruits in the background. Very good. I guess the carbonation is very fine from the Champenoise process, it's still strong enough and the bottle fizzed slightly though I should have chilled it. Beautiful fine bubbles detail a golden amber look. Nice stuff!

Pours very carbonated with a puffy white head. Golden, clear, and effervescent. Taste is sweet, full and woody.A slightly dry and yasty finish, long aftertaste, great palate. Very worthwhile libation.

Such a unique beer! A perfect blend of strong Belgian with a nice feel of champagne! Highly recommended!

Simplesmente deliciosa. Desce muito fácil. Pena éo preço. No Brasil custa R$ 245. Nos Estados Unidos paguei 30 dólares. Também não é barato. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of flower, ginger, lemon. Amber, clear with white head. Fruits and flowers, honey and alcohol warmth in flavor. Smooth, medium body.

Al club de tast de l'Olut (Sabadell)... Gran cervesa que amaga els 11,5º d'alcohol... ideal per brindar!! Semblant a un cava en boca, a una farmhouse/saison en nas.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 Probada en el Club de cata Olut de Sabadell en formato botella, cerveza que podría ser un cava

750ml corked and caged bottle procured on a discount price. 2015 vintage. Cork rockets off. Pours a hazed gold, large and fizzy white ehad, pours very similiar ot champagne. Aroma is peppery citrus, herbs, malt candy. Flavor is gingery malt candy, sweet, high carb, raisin. Decent.

Very over rated I'm disappointed with this beer big time ! Lovely flavour like my current favourite 3 Monts .This is the crux of my review theres no after taste !an average white wine would have this.This claims to be champagne of beers .It's just high alcohol Save a hell of a lot buy 3 Monts des flanders for less than €7
