Bottle shared at home. Straw yellow colour, no head, just small bubbles. Nose is light sourness, spices, some cider like nose. Taste is low bitternes, low-medium sweetness. Some coriander maybe? Very high carbonation, even too high for a champagne. Had very high expectations, not even close sadly.

Ysok02 (1910) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Belle robe blonde, mousse crémeuse et persistante. Nez qui évoque une triple karmeliet avec un coté boisé, fruits jaunes bien mûrs, notes florales, malt légèrement torréfiée et une touche de levures. Bouche à l’attaque ample, riche, puissante, l’alcool est présent mais bien contrebalancé par la fraîcheur et une bulle crémeuse, longue finale fuitée. Une bière de repas

Bottle of 75cl, in a pint, from the fridge. Drinked a long time ago... Good and weird beer at the same time... Taste like champagne...

Golden colour with soapy head. Aroma has yeast and pepper. Floral. Pink peppercorns. Too spicy. I’m glad it was a taster not an expensive bottle.

Trolleo (1826) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 20, 2017
Hazy golden color with foamy white disappearing head. Sweet sugary and fruity aroma. Fruity taste, some alcohol, grapes, some honey. Very nice.

Lore (2989) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 31, 2017
hazy yellow colour, huge white head aroma of wine cellar, champagne, floral notes, earth, maybe some pear; taste is surprisingly dominated by honey sweetness with fruity notes and alcohol; great Belgian strong ale

Floral and fruity notes, pear, very sweet with hints of alcohol, golden with a good and quite persistant white head, medium body, fizzy, strong floral and a bit grassy notes...good, now i want to try malheur; obviously the main problem with this beer is the temperature, very cold or too sweet and a bit too alcoholic.

Bobson (106) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle @ home. Looks nice golden, small white head with strong carbonation. Smell gives malts, citrus fruit and something sweet that reminds of honey. Tastes malty and like citrus fruit, somewhat sweet with an acidic finish. Strong carbonation but still a very soft mouth feel. Overall, extremely solid beer I’d happily drink again.

Clear golden color with no head. Good carbonation. Aroma fruity and yeasty. Taste banana, yeast and sweet fruit like grapes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cristobal37 (1287) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 15, 2017
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!
