Clear golden color with no head. Good carbonation. Aroma fruity and yeasty. Taste banana, yeast and sweet fruit like grapes.

Bottle bb 6/2017. Loads of carbonation, but head dissipates eventually. Aroma is sweet with a little dryness. Sweet marzipan, malts, almonds, with some dry snap. Not unlike champagne, but there is a sweetness to it which is unique among other belgian beers. Really cool! Thanks again Lajos! kapusil (1413) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 15, 2017
0.75l bottle shared with Cristobal37. Clear golden body with a huge white head. The aroma is really similar to a champagne. It has notes of pears, yeast and hay. Taste of bread, sugar syrup, hay and pears. Very nice beer. Cokemonkey11 (846) - - JAN 8, 2017
Big bottle with a champagne Cork. Pours medium golden amber with a thick foam that subsides. Scent is Belgian ale but distinct with medium sour notes. Very fruity and sweet but not overpowering. Interesting. Finish is soft. When tasting in champagne style it becomes more resinous and ale but still drinkable. Great experience. jelledebont (124) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
Perfecte drank met oud en nieuw voor iemand als ik die niet zo van champagne houdt.

0,75l Flasche. Goldenes trüben Bier mit einer tollen Schaumkrone. Leicht fruchtiger, spritziger Geruch. Schmeckt nach Vanille, Honig, Koriander, Circus...
Sehr gut abgeschmeckt, Champagner lässt grüßen! Korcz (3375) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2016

750ml cork bottle with mini-booklet, opened with very loud "pop" bought at Good Stuff in Yuen Long.
Looks: Clear golden colour; Explosive two and a half finger head with soapy white foam lasts for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very Fragrant and sweet Pils malt, with strong perfume, honey, caramel, lemon, plums, dark fruits, sparkling wine, strong floral, icing sugar, strong herbs, bread, strong wine yeast and grass. Nice!
Taste: Close to strong sweet Pils malt, with strong alcohol, liquorices, strong honey, fair dark fruits, floral, glucose, strong herbs, strong wine yeast, lemon, quite strong bitter hops and grass.
Body: Full body. Quite dry, thin and slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good Pils maltyness in a solid background. Thin and dry-ish, more bubbly than creamy. Strong booze, plums and strong herbs hit at the same time, but taste fairly harmonic with strong floral. Very Belgian and winey yeasty with strong lemon to round. Strong but quite nice!
Booze and Sweetness: the 11.5% alcohol is explicit, but blends well with strong herbs, honey and plum esters. Sweetness is glucose-like, strong but not cloying. Good!
Hoppiness: Strong floral, lemon, strong herbs and grass in nose and taste; Bitterness is quite strong for an abrupt, mid to high astringent sweet-bitter finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Sweet, boozy and herbal bitter to mouth.
Comments: As the reputed Champagne beer, I had high expectation and it’s a mixbag – good looks and bubbly winey, but the aroma and taste is somehow sweeter, naked boozyness and oddly too herbal. It’s enjoyable to share casually with friends, but given the price tag and how it was made, it should be more than this. Still worth a try for the curiosity!
Tasted in Belgium Beer Weekend 2016.
Golden, clear with bubbles just like champane.
Sweet and little bit of sourness, pleasantly fullfills your mouth.
Never tasted this kind of beer. Had to buy 1 large bottle and bring to Korea !
One of the best beer in my life. (Also one of the most expensive!) Boogiewood (9) - Buggenhout, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2016 does not count
Aroma is citrus, lychee. Smaak is zacht fruitig. Gekoeld te drinken in champagneglas. Zeer lekker
