Een behoorlijk aan de prijs biertje met een behoorlijk lekkere smaak, toch staat de prijs niet in verhouding met het gevoel en de smaak. Duvel tripple hop komt veel dichter bij. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Hazy golden color with foamy white disappearing head. Sweet sugary and fruity aroma. Fruity taste, some alcohol, grapes, some honey. Very nice.

Lore (2563) - 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 (98) - 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 Id 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 (998) - 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!

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.

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.

Perfecte drank met oud en nieuw voor iemand als ik die niet zo van champagne houdt.
