Really an unbelievable beer. Complex all around. Woody, brett, winey aroma and a bit sweet smelling. A beautiful deep hazy red/orange color with a thin off-white head. The taste is very complex; starts lightly sweet and bitter like a pale ale, turning to a slightly brett-like orange peel bitter-sour, then it smoothes out into a vanilla-like wood flavor finishing extremely smooth with a hint of sake at the end. Definitely one of my all-time favorites...like something out of willy wonka’s brewery!

La bière a comme référence la Rochefort. On goûte, le malt, la levure, caramel. Très bonne.

Scipio (1045) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours a dark amber or copper in color with a thin off white head. The aroma is enticing, although it isn’t very strong. It gives a sweeter impression, with caramel, raisin, yeast, and earthy malts. The advertised sake is faint. The taste is sweet and much more bitter than I was expecting. The flavors are balanced. Its still earthy, has floral hops, caramel, brown sugar, yeast, and spices. The sake is still detectable, but really comes through in the form of a heavy aftertaste. Light to medium in body, a very slick texture, and average carbonation. This is pretty good, though I’d move to something else after just one.

330ml bottle from Pinta's in Moscow. Pours dark brown with a medium-sized light brown head. Aroma is dried fruits, caramel, liquorice, sake. Taste is caramel, spices, quite heavy sweetness, notes of alcohol.

colui72 (989) - HONG KONG - JUN 3, 2017
Pours copper, fizzy with a large cream head and little lacing. Aroma is floral, berries, sweet malts. Taste is very malty and boozy, with some fruits and berries, candi sugar, dry bitter. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish, Tried it again after 2 years, same feeling of something missing.

Il y a comme un côté liquoreux, orangé qui confère à cette bière de type belge, un côté fort sympathique !

Bière orange, gingembre au gout du printemps, épicé, légère capsule chouette avec une chouette

RhetoricalAns (929) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2017
Copper brown pour, small beige head with minimal retention, no lacing. Varied malt aroma, biscuit, caramel, some darker fruit. taste leans toward sweet but not overly with mild hop bitter finish. fairly dry. Heavier malts come through in the flavour. higher carbonation, bubbly mouthfeel. Alcohol comes through a tad too much for me.

Bottle from Liquor Barn. Aroma of malts and fruits, cut nicely with alcohol from the sake barrel. Taste was overpoweringly sweet at first, but improved as the beer warmed a bit.

stupre (328) - Nanterre, FRANCE - MAR 12, 2017
Bouteille achetée chez Intercaves. Bel équilibre entre l’alcool et les arômes fruités. Rondeur très agréable.
