Attaque plutt ronde et sucre. La finale met en vidence des notes mtalliques. Elle reste malgr tout agrable a boire.

Une blonde qui pourrait donner la leon beaucoup de bires. Dabord son tiquette est explicite: je vis le jour dans un champ de houblon. Et aussi: un foudre de chne exalta notre passion. Ensuite on a eu la noblesse de donner le nom dun anctre: le brave Livinus, avec sa belle moustache style 1900 et son chapeau moul. Enfin une remarquable morale sur la dgustation: mon souhait le plus ardent est dtre dguste par une bouche connaisseuse, ou de vieillir sous de vritables votes. Trs beau programme donc pour entamer cette dgustation, dautant plus que lon nous gratifie dun 10 % abv... Excusez du peu. Coloris blond fonc. Clart nette. Bulles moyennes en colonne au centre. Mousse blanche qui vient rapidement tapisser le breuvage. Armes dabricot, fruit frais, orge et houblon soutenu. Texture trs agrable. 1re bouche o lon trouve un bon assortiment crales/houblon, avec insistance sur le houblon fin. 2me o on amplifie le dvelopp. 3me o on quilibre les saveurs avec un savant art de faire. Longueur o on assure sans problme sur de belles tonalits. Levure de vraie lie. Alcool trs bien dos. Finale o on lie et on exalte, jusqu un culminatus. Grande bire donc o on retrouve lartisan de la Poperings Hommel, et le mme esprit si pas la mme qualit. Mais comme le brasseur la trs bien inscrit: de brouwer = qualit. Cest bien dit, cest exauc et cest valid.

Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Light dry palate. Smooth and strong pale malt. A little brandy alcohol underneath. Frothy malt cream and mild tripel like fruits. Slightly warming finish. Unsubtle but hard not to like!

Clear blond beer, big creamy to rocky had, stable, non adhesive. Aroma: citrus, very grassy hops, some spices, bit yeasty, metallic, alcohol. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body, creamy texture. Taste: some citrus, sweet grains and malts, candi sugar, bitter hops. Aftertaste: candi sugar, alcohol sweetness, very bitter, dry an almost chemical ending, alcohol is very noticeable. Not too complex, but still an enjoyable beer.

Blonde forte. elle le mrite davoir une force dompter sur un got plus fin. Mais je ne la trouve pas forcement subtil.

Bottled 330ml. -Golden coloured, small white head, light honey and alcohol in the nose. Moderate sweet malty, caramel and yeast with rather spicy finish. Theres also light hops presence but not enough to reduce warming alcohol and spices.
