moldovan9807 (146) - Oradea, ROMANIA - APR 22, 2017
Aroma of sour lemons, green hops, earthiness and a little bit of belgian yeast. Taste is fruity, sour and spicy. Quite crisp. Very balanced. Strong carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Finish shows some hint of alcoholic warmth. Alcohol is basically well hidden though. Good.

Barwa jasna, piana drobno pęcherzykowa, pięknie oblepia szkło. Belgijskie drożdże, przyprawy, i w sumie to tyle. Alkohol jest genialne ukryty, istnieje niebezpieczeństwo szybkiego upicia się.

Piana wysoka nawet bardzo troszke na mnie syczy. Barwa jasna slomkowa metna. Aromat przyjmny slodowy z drozdzami w tle. W smaku lagodne drozdzowo szampansko. Przeszkadza zbyt wysokie nasycenie. Generalnie nie zle ale szalu nie ma.

Tinaccio (179) - Milano, ITALY - APR 9, 2017
Drunk lot of times. Last time bottle from Tesco in London, UK. Colour is pale blond with a gigantic, solid and lasting white head. Aroma is fruity, some orange and pear, flowers, then spicy and pepper. Taste is fresh, fruit, orange, pear, yeast, hops. Palate is medium body despite the high carbonation. Finish is long, spicy and bitter. You can find it everywhere. Probably the best beer that you can easily find in most supermarkets in Europe. For many years probably my favourite overall. Now, after many beers tried (despite the few reviews) still one of my favourite Belgian beers.

autos5 (165) - Szczecin, POLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bardzo ładny wygląd piwa - jasne i lekko mętnawe. Aromat dość intensywny, czuć trochę belgijskich drożdży a trochę szampana. W smaku piwo rzeczywiście przywodzi mi na myśl szampana, szczeglnie, że nasycenie jest bardzo wysokie. Piwo nie posiada goryczki ale pozostawia długie alkoholowe wrażenie na podniebieniu - na szczęście nie przeszkadza to w piciu.

Gehbe (411) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - APR 2, 2017
Bottle. Clear golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of zest, citrus, spice, light malty and fruity notes. Medium sweetness backed up by light sourness with a light crispy bitter finish. Medium body, high carbonation. Very well balanced and subtle. Dangerous.

pleispleis (67) - Maccagno, ITALY - APR 2, 2017
bottiglia 33 cl, schiuma bianca fine abbondante molto persistente, rimane nel bicchiere fino alla fine, giallo pallido e velata, al naso malto spezie e lieviti belgi, in bocca malto spezie e vagamente banana, carbonatazione decisa, medio corpo, amaro accentuato lungo nel finale. Per i miei gusti predomina e un p troppo lalcool

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Very pale light yellow. Beautiful thick head with lots of lacing. Aroma of sour lemons, european hops, earthiness and a little bit of belgian yeast. Taste is fruity, sour and spicy. Quite crisp. Very balanced. Strong carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Finish shows some alcoholic warmth. Alcohol is basically well hidden though. Great.

BeerLieutenant38 (53) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 31, 2017
Hazy golden colour with large fluffy white head. Strong lacing. Aroma has plenty of citrusy hops. The hops comes through very strong in the flavour too. Alcohol presence is significant. Light sweetness, slightly over medium bitterness. Highly satisfying brew. Im new to Belgian beer, but I think its safe to assume that this is a great example.
