COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden beer with a beautiful firm white head. In the aroma you distinguish mainly vanilla, white pepper and some fruity scents. The main palate is soft sweet, creamy with a sober alcohol impression. In the aftertaste you notice some stone fruits (peach, nectarine) and a soft and smooth bitterness is elegantly present. In short, a savoury blond with a complaisant character.

Etiquette trs classe avec ce loup dor sur fond noir, comme la capsule aussi. Et au niveau du titrage, cest en fait une bire de 7,4 % abv, pour tre prcis, et donc au-dessus de son nom sur tiquette comme une Rochefort par exemple. Grande vivacit au dcapsulage. Couleur blond moyen. Apparence avec un lger voile. Bulles fines partout et trs vives. Mousse blanche paisse, avec en haut la fameuse texture de blanc doeufs battus, et un super cratre qui se forme au centre. Armes de houblon aromatique magnifique, amertume fine, malt clair, levure. 1re bouche souple avec une trs belle entame sur un houblon hyperfin et complexe. Arrire-bouche avec un trs bel quilibre malt/houblon. 2me la superbe harmonie malt/houblon avec dautres nuances et une amertume magique. 3me o le malt passe un peu en avant, ts beau. Arrire-bouche dune grande mlodie. La longueur est lamertume et le bl, avec des fruits blancs, et une pointe dcorce de bouleau. La texture est toujours souple et le got ample. La levure est fine, dun beau caractre, fleurie et fruite. Lalcool est bien dans la ligne dune blonde de base et soutient laise le sujet. La finale est quasi veloute, fine, montre encore dautres valeurs comme une herbe des bois, et quelques touches de tabac blond. Les fruits sont en pelure, et il y a une pointe dagrumes. CONCLUSION: une vraiment digne introduction cette gamme de classe, qui a fini par donner son nom la brasserie Lupus, quoique les deux noms apparaissent encore sur ltiquette. Heureux brasseur de faire ainsi un pareil brassin initial! Bravo pour tout: ltiquette classe, lhonntet sur la force abv, et surtout ce breuvage magnifique.

Cybercat (5553) - Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a clear, bubbly golden with a skimpy eggshell head. Strong, fruity aroma has firm apple,pear and banana notes plus hints of sweet malt and butterscotch. Flavor does not quite live up to the aroma, but is still tasty, fruity and malty with snips of hops and butterscotch. Firm, fizzy texture leaves a fruity and somewhat hoppy finish. This will get you howling!

superspak (5297) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/13/2013. Pours slight hazy deep golden color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Incredible appearance. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellence Belgian pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Ernest (7589) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of pepper and alcohol, lighter notes of gum, dried pineapple, confectioners sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Wow, I quite like this...this fills a niche I enjoy but rarely find a good example of, a Belgian golden thats cleanly made (the alcohol odor is especially clean EtOH to my nose, like that in good vodka, no higher/fusel alcohols whatsoever), very well balanced (quite dry but not at all too dry), yeasty in a good way, and pleasantly aromatic. This has all the outward characters of a great tripel without being weighed down like most 9%+ examples. Dry, yeasty (more cobwebby-peppery than fruity-estery), fluffy mouthfeel, and an eternally lasting head. Its not the sort of beer that leaps up and begs for your attention (like an eager puppy?), but rather one that hangs back and gains your admiration by its restrained elegance (like the distant lone wolf suggested by the brewery name, ha). This is what I wish more Belgian golden ales in general were like (regardless of ABV), especially tripels.

huineman (654) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 10, 2015
75 cl. bottle, bought at the brewery in Aarschot. Hazy pale golden with abundant and thick white froth. Aroma is mostly secondary: wild yeast, bread dough, cookie. Citrus fruit and coriander as well. Taste is dry, fresh, round and long-lasting. Very nice, asks for a second pint.

TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2013
750mL: Golden peach in color. Fat, rocky white head clings to the glass after each gulp. Perfumey, characterful nose entices with notes of potpourri, lilac, pastry cream, oven-fresh sponge cake, pineapple sherbet, cracker dough, honey-drizzled hay, lemon balm, dried apricot, cotton candy, and anise-tinged hops. Plenty of minerals, musty cellar and peppery phenols, as well. Expansive carbonation. Dry crackery malt initially accompanies the airy, well-attenuated body which paves the way for slicker honeydew and a cleansing ripe-peach twang interlaced with a succulent floral hop burst. Intricate yeast-derived nuances deliver considerable depth while enhancing body. Dry as a bone, yet far from stark or hollow, as dabs of cotton candy gel with a twist of juicy hops and bright fruity esters to fill out the bodys core. Bountiful apricot and delicate flavorsome tropical accents supplement the body with a supple slickness, while a pillowy banana cream pie effect results from the yeast and piecrusty malt interplay. Some springy lemon balm notes are buried within, to boot. Nuanced sulfury sharpness lends a metallic zing and dovetails with the puttylike yeast signature which imparts rusticity and fends off the sweetness. Well-textured malt aids the body with an abundance of palate-hugging starches. Pillowy and oh so soft. Dry and graceful finish is beautifully balanced with a juggling of juicy hop sophistication, starchy Pils malt, and musty yeast. So quaffable yet equally contemplative. The predominant character of musty cellar draws instant parallels to Castelain Blond Biere and Bire des Sans, although this exhibits significantly more depth and less hollowness than those examples (and of course is much more a strong golden than biere de garde). Delicate beers like this generally fare poorly on RateBeer, which is unfortunate because this is a fine-tuned beer of tremendous balance, complexity and glamor, and is just begging the drinker to spend some time with it and explore the deep innerness of its soul.

Bottle at home. The most distinctive of the Wolf range. Slightly cloudy but smooth and creamy. For the strength, very refreshing with lots of light fruit and vanilla with a crisp, fresh quality which sets it apart. Very good blonde beer.

omhper (24616) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2012
Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. Hazy pale golden. Distinct citric nose with some floral buckwheat. Dry and slender, soft and attractive. Nicely drinkable with notes of lime juicy and tangerine. Some late bitterness. Not muchn depth, but wonderful drinkability and relaxed character.

maupie (1008) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2012
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick blond and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a fruity touch . This beer smells to fruit.
