Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a thick, pillowy white head. Aroma is complex, spicy and earthy with hints of citrus. Taste is much the same, some spicy and earthy notes, a subtle sweetness, hides the ABV pretty well but definitely finishes with an alcohol warmth. Dry finish. Like this more than expected based on the reviews.

White creamy and thick foam. Aroma is light fruit, a bit like apple cider. Pretty good aroma. Taste is light sweet. Medium body. Finish is bitter. Strong palate. Overall not my taste. Foam tastes better than liquid. No character in this beer, lacks complexity too.

Butelka 0,33l Kolor złoty, jakieś małe farfocle pływają ale piana dobra, mocna. Aromat słodki słodowy, trochę ziół. W smaku wytrawne, ostre zioła na podniebieniu przyjemne ziołowe. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Bottle in a resaurant in Bruges. Pours blond with a big frothy white head. Mild spice and citrus aroma. The taste is peppery spice with hay and bread. Bitter finish. OK.

Zarrach76 (309) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 28, 2016
Blonde bien dorée, translucide avec une énorme mousse dense, centrale et structurée. Nez caramel, épices et agrumes, pamplemousse, orange et citron, abricot, pêche, coriandre, poivre, noisette, miel, chocolat léger au lait... Petite odeur champignonneuse, mais rien de désagréable. Une blonde avec du caractère donc ! Carbonatation soutenue, amertume franche en première bouche. L’alcool ne prend pas trop le pas sur le reste. Les saveurs sont très végétales, les houblons sont plutôt costauds au niveau gustatif. On retrouve la coriandre, le pissenlit, la roquette, le poivre, des herbes très olfactives, ainsi que différentes céréales qui marquent l’arrière-bouche. Bière typée intéressante et assez distincte qui rappelle la Lucifer par exemple. Un bon classique Belge qui procure toujours du plaisir ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

330 ml bottle. Of course the name and design are pure genius. The beer itself is rather dull by comparison. Solid Belgian strong beer.
