Tomada en copa a partir de botella de 33 cl. Tena muchas expectativas respecto a esta cerveza y no las ha cumplido como esperaba. Sin ser una mala cerveza (para nada) creo que no est al nivel de otras tantas strong ale belgas. El aroma es afrutado, pero no demasiado intenso, est un poco a medio gas. La apariencia es rubia clara con corona de espuma permanente. Un sabor que sin estar nada mal, no aporta mucho. Es afrutada y tiene toques ctricos. El paladar correcto, pero flojo para una strong ale de estas caractersticas.

0,33l Flasche. Gelbes trbes Bier mit einer groen Schaumkrone. Riecht slich malzig, wird im Geschmack besttigt, dazu kommt eine leichte Citrusnote. Im Abgang schmeckt es leider ein wenig nach Alkohol.

Yum! Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a thick frothy head and some bubbles. It said to "pour unhurriedly" but I was thirsty and wanted some Duvel in my mouth! A slightly sour aroma, but a smooth and complex taste. Perfect for listening to ABBA and playing video games. Singles were only $3 at the local store-- much cheaper than other Belgians weve tried. A mandatory stop on every nerds journey (beer nerds especially but all nerds welcome).

antsaluga (20) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Nalewa się bardzo jasne, wręcz słomkowe, wysycenie bardzo duże, co przekłada się na kosmiczną ilość piany, ktra niesetety jest brzydka - gubopęcherzykowa, aczkolwiek trwała. Piwo aż musuje od ilości CO2. Zapach nie powala - belgijskie drożdze, lekkie owoce i przyprawy, do tego przyjemna, kwiatowa nuta. W smaku praktycznie to samo. Lekka chmielowość i umiakowana goryczka, niestety dość wyczuwalny alkohol. Lekko kwaskowate. Nasycenie aż szczypie w język.

Yellow cloudy appearance with frothy head. Smells of yeast strains together with negligible alcohol undertones.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2017 Birra color oro. Leggermente opaca a causa della rifermentazione in bottiglia. Frizzantezza moderata con un bel cappello di schiuma fine. All? olfatto si sente la luppolatura, fresca con note di agrumi. Al palato abbadtanza corposa, fresva, note di miele, mela e frutti a polpa gialla. Alla fine amara grazie ai luppoli boemi che la rendono molto piacevole. Una grande birra soprattutto da sorseggiare con un aperitivo.

How the hell is this 8.5 percent? Had this on a trip to Belgium, a gorgeous light beer with a huge hidden kick.

Pours with a bubbly and light white foam. Colour is nice slightly cloudy light gold. Aroma is fresh, elegant and sweet and has banana, orange, bubblegum and ocean. Palate is soda like with slight oiliness and very fine-bubbled carbonation. Taste has orange and some kind of exotic fruit (pineapple?), red Hubbabubba bubblegum as well. Almost no bitterness, nor noticeable hoppiness. Very light, but tasty. Very refreshing. Its an okay beer in its category, but does not become personal favorite.

Bottle at home. Pours clear, vivid golden with lots of white, bubbly foam. Yeasty, with sweet caramel, citrus peel, fresh herbs and spices. High carbonation. Good bitterness. There is sour notes in the taste, but only to complemet the rest. Highly drinkable.
