On tap @ delirium. Fantastica nel suo bicchiere che sembra avere il gambo ricolmo di sangue. Il profumo mi ricorda le mele verdi e asprissime (granny smith), ma anche gli agrumi, e ci sono sentori dolci tipo panforte. Il colore è dorato, la schiuma è "spumosa" , vaporosa, bianco brillante. Il gusto non si discosta molto dal profumo. piacevole calore alcolico, sentori aspri sempre di mela verde e di agrumi, ma ben combattuti dal dolce alcolico. Nel bicchiere è bella attiva e anche sul palato la carbonatazione si fa sentire. Non è sconvolgente ma è piacevolente diversa dalle altre birre della casa.

Sampled from a bottle from Utobeer. Stoneware-style bottle with a crown cap. Pours a hazy golden colour with sediment and a foaming white head. Lots of sweetness in the taste but offset by a well-balanced bitterness. Notes of orange, peach and yeasty flavours. Also candy and spices. Good bitter finish. A good Belgian Ale but a little too much sugary flavour for me.

Chutné pivo, které je velmi podobné deliriu tremens. Tóny třtiny, či banánů spojené s dobrou říznou chutí a krémovou pěnou.

Clear golden color with frothy off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt and sugar with light yeast esters. Taste is boozy, sugary, yeasty with some earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium to light body, medium carbonation, dry, but quite boozy and difficult to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Dark golden, looks like honey. Thick head. Aroma yeasty, spicy with some citrus and peach. Taste nicely balanced with yeast, some sweetness and bitterness at the end. It drogs out quickly, though.

Bottle @home. Pours amber/orange, white head. Nose yeasty, malty, slight hop. Taste is more of the same with a slight spice, also slightly sweet on the finish.

Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, persika, gräs, peppar, citrus och hö. Lätt kropp och sötma, rund och len, kryddig, beska med smak av citrus- och apelsinskal.
