Bire superbe que cette recette de larchosite dAubechies qui nous surprend plus dun titre, mais on pouvait sattendre des merveilles avec cette magnifique brasserie Dupont. Le ct herbes aromatiques a t dvelopp dans lesprit strictement gustatif, et non pas fausse antiquit que dautres sites auraient pu exploiter. Bravo Aubechies Blicquy dtre rest au ct original dune bire belge spciale, ce quelle devait tre, mais il fallait viter tous les cueils faciles de ce genre historique, et mme ici antique... Bravo encore. Donc par rapport au site Ratebeer, insistons sur le fait que cette bire nest pas une traditional ale, mais une spciale belge (ou spciale ancien belge si vous prfrez!!!). Les artistes de chez Dupont nous ont sur cette base concoct (cest le mot!!!) un merveilleux breuvage gaulois aromatique. Bouteille de 75 cl, bouchonne de lige, ltiquette sobre (comme toujours chez Dupont). Couleur dor fonc brillant. Clart nette, pure. Bulles moyennes par milliers partout (mais quand on a entendu lexplosion louverture de cette bouteille, rien dtonnant....). Mousse blanc/beige bien forme: floconne en bas et crmeuse en haut au centre. Armes de pain gris, levure, foie de veau, pointe de muscade, crote de pain. 1re bouche soyeuse lentre trs originale, sur des pices orientales fines, fleurs et herbes, suivies dun malt caramel. Arrire-bouche bien pleine, complte avec une pointe dsaltrante dherbes. 2me bouche dun fantastique ensemble crales/houblon/levure, avec une pointe dpices fines. 3me bouche fleurie sublime, avec une pointe de lavande, de santal et daubpine. Arrire-bouche trs pleine et qui progresse. Longueur (avec une bouteille trs lgrement rfrigre, comme conseill par le brasseur) sublime, avec des fleurs en tous sens et lorge qui revient, la texture trs moelleuse. Levure douce, veloute, avec une pointe de sel marin et de poivre. Alcool trs bien, qui donne un soutien massif cette bire. Finale magique, splendide, grandiose. Conclusion: une russite totale, dans un format qui a fait ses preuves, et qui apporte notre boisson nationale un attrait considrable, voire extrme quand elle atteint ces sommets...

Bottled - Bedford Beer Festival. 75cl bottle shared with the gathering. The real deal! A copper coloured beer with a full aroma of spices, pepper and spearmint. These aromas all come through into the taste in a massively enjoyable way. Tha alcohol level gives it a great kick. Sounds an odd mix of flavours and I can see why some people would find it odd, but to me this is a truly great, tasty, fully enjoyable experience.

A really special beer brewed without hops. Tastes like a spicier than usual tripel. Tried with Jess at Avoli on our anniversary in 2016.

Bottle 750ml. Great beer. Aromas of citrus, caramel, coriander, vanilla, and dough. Taste is sweet, with a hint of sourness. Palate is almost creamy, and full bodied. Amber, cloudy, with a frothy white head.

A golden straw colored pour. Starts off with a huge white head. This quickly fades away, leaving not much in the way of lacing behind it. Just a thin layer of bubbles keep afloat the surface. Honey and malt aromas are the first thing to greet my nose. There is a bit of spiciness to it as well. Without actually having spices. The taste is pretty much on par with the aroma. Sweet and silky smooth. A honey-like coating envelopes my mouth. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. This beer is awesome. I could, and will, drink it daily. My new favorite, until the next one comes.

Described as a Herbed/Spiced Beer on beerAdvocate, Im not really sure what to expect. But of all the beers on the Holiday offering list, this is one of the few with a very good review/score on Advocate. So, we bought a case, and well just have to crack a bottle to see what weve got. First off, the backside of the label tells this lengthy story about how the Posca Rustica came to be. I tried to read it all it one sitting, but had to come back to it in the morning. In any case, they weave a tale of a spiced version of a saison ale that was fed to the Roman soldiers while stationed in modern-day Belgium. Posca Rustica pours out a darker amber color than the standard Saison. Theres a significant rusty shade to the amber color, with a nice white fluffy foam on top. The foam is thick and long-lasting, leaving a nice amount of lacing behind. The aromas are a beautiful melting pot of bready, yeasty-ness, but much less funky than a typical saison. The herbal components are evident, but not intense. The herbal aromas follow through on the palate, which is really cool. In body, its fairly light like the saison, but its got a much creamier, velvety mouth-feel. Its got this added layer of complexity that is as much about texture as it is flavor. Right about now, Im wishing I had ordered more than just this one case.

Wombata (623) - Kobe, JAPAN - JUN 30, 2010
Tasted an eight-year-old 2002 with an expiration date of 2007. Bouquet: ginger, pleasantly medicinal with menthol notes. Later showed some licorice. Flavor: Similar to bouquet with some pear and fermented honey characteristics that made for a smooth, rounded body. This too developed some licorice flavors as it warmed up. Outstanding. Complex and ages well.

Yummmm. Poured at a good temperature with a medium sized head that soon settles to a few wisps, a ring and a little lace. Color is a hazy amber with no bubble trails. Aroma is malt, beer, yeast, hop, fruit, wine. Flavors like nose with sweet on top with bitter and carbonic tang right below. Vineous, a little grape. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, fairly long and easy drinking. Excellent brew!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Bogate słodowo-aromatyczne piwo. Mocno nagazowane, bardzo obfita piana. Piwo jasne lekko zamglone i mętne. Korek z mojej butelki 75cl głaśno wystrzelił i dymek parował przez dłgi czas podczas nalewania. Zacna rzecz od Dupont. Polecam

Bottle, caged and corked, under the "Posca Rustica" label. Nice classic visuals, golden orange and light, slightly opaque. The aroma is darn like pineapple juice, straight up. This drinks with a nice fruity essence, overall -- a definite tropical fruit tilt being the primary component. Very evenly balanced, with any herbal aspects being intertwined quite well. Fun.
