chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Appearance: Lightly hazed, dark copper body with a full fingers worth of meringue-like, whitish foam. Fair amount of spiderweb lacing on the way down. Smell: Foundation of lightly sweet-scented maltiness on which sit fruit notes of pears and apples. Also, a good snap of spices, smelling of everything from clove to pepper. Taste: Sweet, sugary pale maltiness slides in before the spicy taste of cracked cloves, white pepper, cardamon, and even a bit of cinnamon. Fruity, faintly tart tastes of apples and pears along with some soft floral tones. Light bitterness. Drying, warming finish with a lingering spiciness and (still lightly) tart fruitiness in the aftertaste, Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Lightly sticky mouthfeel. Drinkability: A good Belgian brew - you get some upfront sweet maltiness, a complex spice character, and a nice display of fruitiness. A little bit of everything.

jybi (239) - FRANCE - AUG 12, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2016 Cest une bien belle mlodie que nous offre notre escargot saxophoniste. Les premires notes sont piano, permettant aux levures de sexprimer et laissant en bouche des notes de crales. La sonorit monte alors crescendo pour laisser place au houblon,l"amertume et des notes citronnes. Calmement, nous retombons alors, decrescendo vers des notes plus alcooliques. La longueur en bouche tant trs apprciable. Nous regretterons que notre escargot manque de "caisse" et que la corpulence de la saxo ne soit plus importante. Son blond, tirant sur lambr, sa robe lgrement opaque et sa forte effervescence donne de surcrot du rythme cette bire. Laissez donc vous porter par la musique....
