Un classique pour les amateurs de bières belges artisanales. Le "must" c’est de déguster cette bière dans la brasserie même. Un espace taverne permet d’accueillir les visiteurs à l’intérieur de la brasserie, un véritable musée vivant de la bière! délicieux!

One of the best beers of brasserie caracole. Much more complex then the saxo, so that makes this beer my favorite beer from this brewery.

This is probably one of the best beers on the planet. In fact, everything Caracole makes is spectacular. The first time I had this beer I hadn’t had enough good Belgian ambers to know how great it was, but by my second and third bottles I was completely hooked. I think you need to have this one more than once to fully appreciate it. Beautiful coloring when held up to the light, good medium lace and fluffy head. When you drink this beer you’ll notice all sorts of flavors and aromas. Every taste hits with floral and fruit notes and subtle yeast – like a Belgian garden in a bottle. Wonderful smooth, effervescent palate with a pleasant, lingering finish. This is a must try for any Belgian enthusiast (in fact, get as many of the caracole products as you can because they’re all amazing).

Beautiful, cloudy orange amber beer underneath a thick pillowy off-white head. Fades to thin lace that lasts to the bottom of the glass. Smells quite yeasty, with notes of dried fruit and raisins apparent. Some alcohol smell sneaks through. Tastes rich and spicy and then fades into a long fruity finish that is lightly hopped. Well balanced and delicious. The best I've had in awhile.

(bottled). Medium amber color with yeasty haze. Aroma is malty sweet with lots of stone fruit and floral aroma. Malty, medium-bodied effervescent with peachy esters and candi fullness. Lingering lightly bitter finish with that lush fruit & spice persisting.

The best of the caracole line up and the one I will surely come back to. Flavor is complex and can change dramaticly on a second pouring (750 ml bottle) citrus, and plums but much more subdued than nostradamus. Alcohol flavor must be locked away somwhere else. This little snail can sneak up on you. A very nice beer that I continue to drink. At first I was afraid that the budget was blown on the artwork but I was very pleasently surpised.

Bottle. Hazy copper colour, very lively with a nice 1cm thick off-white head. It’s got a nice classy Belgian aroma of sweet malt, dried fruit, fresh yeast and perhaps some alcohol. Nice spicey taste, fruity with some light hops. Medium bodied with a long lightly hoppy finish. Alcohol is well hid in the taste. Very good.
