bottled. Crisp & clear golden ale, very champagne like; with notes of peach, apple & other fruits, spice, and assertive heat. Whats really nuts here is the balance of sugar-maltiness, alcohol, & the light but always present yeast. This bottle was pricey, to say the least, @ $27, but very well done, an amazing treat to start 2008. Prost!

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.

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

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Had this on Xmas day with the turkey dinner and it was very nice indeed. Taste of Belgium yeast and champagne fizz to boot

Flesje gedronken bij tasting Mitra Oirschot. Bleek gelig bier. Aroma en smaak is veel te kruidig, dit past niet bij bier imo.
