LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - DEC 16, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata alla Conad; versa colore biondo chiaro torbido con schiuma abbondante candida. Aroma invitante di agrumi e caramello, sapore piuttosto ’caldo’ e complesso però tutto sommato non stucchevole come altre birre di Huyghe. Buon corpo. Graziosa.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Nose of spicy fruits, yeast, malt and hioney. Taste of melon, grapefruit dominate with hops and malts also. A very nice beer which compliments Delerium Tremens very well.

Fin (10980) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Barry (neighbour and friend) Cheers Barry. Had this 23-03-08 Light golden pour with some haze, good carbonation with solid white head. Spicey nose, bit tangy and tart at times. Though pretty clear there was some yeast in suspension. Citrus starts to pulse through with a sweet lemonyness to it.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle (in NZ), pours a bright gold, plenty of carbonation, with a white bubbly head. A big sweet malty aroma, lots of alcohol, with cloves. Full mouthfeel, creamy palate with caramal malt. The finish is peppery spiced with a real sharp alcoholic bite.

grandgenie (259) - val-des-monts, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
Dégusté dans un verre tulipe à l’autre oeil bistro. Bière d’apparence or ambré avec de gros dépôt de levure et une fine pillicule de mousse. Odeur de pelure d’orange, de coriande, levure, pamplemousse avec une touche de vanille et d’épices. Une peite ressemblance avec une gueuze vu une légère humidité. Elle est aussi légèrement madérisé. Elle est bien carbonisé avec une bonne rondeur en bouche et un fini crémeux qui dure au réchauffement. Une bière citrique avec un peu dhoublon, caramel, coriande,pelure d’orange et gingembre.

mkel07 (6462) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
330ml bottle. Pale light honey colour with a crisp loose white head. Strong bold aroma with a sweet note that teases the nose. Strong flavour that hits the back of your throat. Very flavoursome.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Bottle. 11.2 oz. Pours hazy brown with a heavy, tall off-white head. Aroma of bread, spice, pumpkin, hops, barley, and notes of tangy citrus fruits. Mild body but not week. Mouthfeel is smooth and full. Finishes nicely and hides the alcohol perfectly. Good Belgian strong.
