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 ził. 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 (128) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 28, 2016
Blonde bien dore, translucide avec une norme mousse dense, centrale et structure. Nez caramel, pices et agrumes, pamplemousse, orange et citron, abricot, pche, coriandre, poivre, noisette, miel, chocolat lger au lait... Petite odeur champignonneuse, mais rien de dsagrable. Une blonde avec du caractre donc ! Carbonatation soutenue, amertume franche en premire bouche. Lalcool ne prend pas trop le pas sur le reste. Les saveurs sont trs vgtales, les houblons sont plutt costauds au niveau gustatif. On retrouve la coriandre, le pissenlit, la roquette, le poivre, des herbes trs olfactives, ainsi que diffrentes crales qui marquent larrire-bouche. Bire type intressante 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.

Robe dore, mousse moyennement persistante. Nez fruit, agrumes, mangue, crales, pointe de levure. Bouche lattaque fruite, de la fracheur, de lquilibre, une belle bulle fine et une finale longue et quilibre. Une bire agrable, quilibre.
