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.

Grzesiek79 (4162) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Dobre piwo tresciwe zlote i metne. Piana gesta spora i trwala. Bukiet kwiatowy smak slodowy, slodkawy i nieco zbozowy. Ale alkohol mocny nie wyczuwalny, dopiero po przelknieciu dal sie odczuc i rozgrzac gardlo. Bardzo estrowe i slodowe piwo. Ciekawa etykieta typu Old School.

Cloudy orange color; giant creamy head. Dry, Tripel aroma; pine needels. Well structured, quite malty, some cork; strongly bitter, far over the average. Traditional, good one; my favorite by Van Eecke.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2002
Gets maximum appearance points for the coolest label ever, featuring some confused looking 85 year old man with a moustache and top hat. Beer-wise its orange-tan colour with huge amounts of nice chewy organisms swimming around in it. strong, doughy, orange peel aromas. quite thick on roof of mouth - peanutbutterish. smooth and a bit salty, and you dont really notice the alcohol until after you finish and you try to stand up.

Light lemon and orange aroma. Golden color, large white head, good lace. Bitter, sparkling, hoppy, orange, lemon. Sweet and round finish with the alcohol well present.
