Roba ambrée, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez sur la farine, puis le houblon, pointe de malt et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque ample, crémeuse, belle bulle et finale amère et onctueuse, à la fois. Une bière agréable, généreuse.

Bottle. Dark blonde, small head. Aroma has yeast, a bit sweetness,like honey or candy. Taste is reasonable bitter, smooth, medium to full-bodied, little carbonation, also some sweetness in the taste, with a nice finish.

In effetti non è proprio cosa brutta, mi apprestavo a non proprio un capolavoro, invece tutto sommato è bevibile...

Crockett (1110) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
I guess this is the stuff. Pours deep amber. Big soapy white head. Lots of lace. Malty and raisin, caramel, hop nose. Creamy mouthfeel. Cotton candy. Vanilla. Earthy mushroom. Sweet but round. Sweet/spicey soapy finish. Nice.

cagou007 (1094) - FRANCE - NOV 1, 2010
Nice colour, for this clear amber beer. Pleasant aromas of caramel, hops and spices. Alcohol taste is present. Oily texture, soft carbonation and long finish.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2013
Ambrée transparente, effervescence moyenne, mousse blanche tombe rapidement. Première chose qui saute au palais: la présence de maïs qui donne toujours un goût assez désagréable. Pour le reste, le sucre caramélisé se taille la part du lion. Suit une amertume houblonnée qui n’est pas du meilleur goût...

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 9, 2008
Bottled (5,8% ABV). A clear dark golden/amber beer with a medium sized and fading white head. Not powerful aroma that however has some aromatic and grassy hops. I like more the flavour that has some caramel notes and then the hops. Medium body, lively carbonation, medium bitterness in the finish. I agree with those who say that this beer has some resemblance of a Pilsner. Enough pleasant.
