kermis (12689) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2016
Bottle shared. Cloudy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is seems infected, but not in a bad way, tart fruits, tart red berries, caramel and malt. I guess its not supposed to be this way but its not that bad. Flavour is moderate sweet and light to moderate sour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Hugh (210) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2016
33cl bottle. Massively carbonated, needed to be poured into two glasses. I feared the worst. Once it calmned down, fragrant with nice full malty fruity flavour.

imdownthepub (14313) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottled, 330ml at The Poechenellekelder, Brussels. Darkish amber with white head. This proved to be sweetish, fruity beer, hints of raspberry and forest fruits alongside sweet toffee, caramel. A tad sticky on the palate. A reasonable beer overall.

VDuquerroux (1589) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A beautiful & funny label. A sparkling orange amber beer with a stormy bubbly fountain in the middle of my glass ; big off-white head with an average retention. Roast, caramel, pear, biscuit. Light to medium sweet, medium dry bitter, warming. Medium body, average texture, average to high carbonation, roasty dry warming short finish. Overall, beautiful, ok belgian strong ale : average roasty aroma, light taste development.

corkyrory66 (1860) - BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2015
Bire ambre ou ambroisie, comme le suggre le nom??? Serait-on en prsence de la nourriture des dieux??? Niveau abv de 7,5 %, comme dhabitude. Mon exemplaire est 2 mois avant la date indique. Ltiquette prsente la gnomette sur une barrique de belle taille. Joli motif. Couleur ambre fonc lgrement abricot, la clart nette, pure. Bulles en fontaine centrale, ultra fines et trs vives. Superbe. (dautant plus que la saturation tait vraiment trs soft). Mousse beige trs clair, bien crmeuse, stable 2 mm. Armes de gueuze, lambic jeune, muscade, vigne vierge, pche de vigne, pointe de safran. 1re bouche soyeuse veloute, lentame trs originale sur lacidit du lambic, mais avec un ct malt soyeux. Arrire-bouche belle et longue. 2me bouche la texture hyper douce, sur un ensemble malt/pices/bois vraiment trs joli. Arrire-bouche fine, complexe. 3me avec des notes trs particulires, sur un malt finement grill. Arrire-bouche au trs bel quilibre, et vraiment longue. Longueur la belle richesse gustative, dans une harmonie densemble tout fait russie. Jambes fines, longues, bien marques. Levure dense, bien lie, belle ligne. Alcool adquat au genre, il est plutt faible mais il travaille bien les saveurs. Finale impeccable. CONCLUSION: trs intressant combin de lambic, bire de ft, pices. Serait-ce donc lambroisie lgendaire, la vritable nourriture des dieux?? Nous nallons pas jusque l, mais je pense quelle en montre la voie, de splendide faon Ce nest dj pas si mal!!

ruigo (2706) - PORTUGAL - JUL 2, 2015
33cl bottle. Slightly hazy brownish amber colour with a nice off-white head. Caramel, yeast, fruits and spices in the aroma. Average to high carbonation and medium body. Taste is more on the sweet side with some sourness and a dry bitter finish. Some medicinal notes. Overall, an odd but drinkable beer.
