Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - DEC 10, 2007
Quatro palavras para definir essa maravilha: LEVEZA, BALANCEAMENTO, COMPLEXIDADE E SOFISTICAO. No sabor, floral, frutado, o lcool s se sente levemente na garganta. Sparkling, perlage maravilhoso. Fermento, madeira (carvalho), ctrico, erva-doce, vinho branco, manteiga, manjerico, slvia e alecrim. Precisa dizer mais?

bigbeersilove (10) - lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2008
(750ml Bottle cellared from 2005) Cloudy yellow pour, with a sharp well defined white head. Sweet aroma of yeast, malt, and banana. Sweet start to the taste but rapidly dried out to an almost champagne-like finish. The mouth-feel is the most amazing part of this beer. The carbonation is so tight it drinks like champagne, and its as if a million Belgium ballerinas are dancing down your tongue. This is a most wonderful beer, and i recommend it to any beer lovers who are celebrating a special occasion!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2008 Bottle at Bishops Arms in Ume. Having read about the pain-stakingly elaborate process behind creating this beer in MJs Book of Belgium Beers I had it mentally listed as a must-try. So when I saw a bottle for the first time ever in my local pub in Sweden last night I practically hurdled the bar to get to it. Served in a bucket of ice (and I mean literally a canary yellow plastic bucket of ice - mental note to myself to phone the bar manager today to talk about proper beer presentation) Deus has managed to once again redefine my understanding of what beer is. Drunk from champagne flutes it pours a sparkling pale gold with a fluffy meringue head. Once this fizzles away youd be hard pushed to tell it apart from the wine it borrows so many qualities from. Stunning aromas of sweet white grape (reminded me a little of Duvel) and allspice. Juicy flavours of slightly sour cooking apples and pears all wrapped up in vanilla oak. The mouthfeel is sublime - each sip virtually vanishing. The drinking equivalent of trying to grasp a cloud. From the elegant bottle (lets just skip the bucket) to the beer itself this is truly worthy of its name and reputation. If you ever get the chance leap across the bar and try it.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 Had a few different cuve years, and I must say that this beer really supprises you at first, and only get better as you have them. So if you had one, try it again and it will be so much better. Its very foamy, and maybe thats the only problem. but is it a problem. better when very cold, and enjoying it in champagne flutes. Its such a fine beer, theere is a strong aroma of malts. Its a very strong beer and its alcoholic level is very present as you drink it. But its flavors are very complex yet fine, and some fruits comes out of it. its a very good product. The bottle and labble is great, 11 Euros. It is an very excelent beer.

Uma cerveja forte com alto teor alcolico. Um sabor levemente salgado (assim como o preo). Vale o investimento, porm no uma cerveja pra farra.

Bottle from Parkhill. Great, complex. Aromas of citrus, dough, hay, honey. Taste is sweet, with bitter and sour notes, long length. Palate is syrupy, full bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2016 From 2d2despuma. In Teku glass. In my saints day. Watching True Detective 2x04-05. A cross between a saison and a Duvel. Amazing in nose. Very refreshing and incredibily well hidden ABV. Expensive (20?)
