UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 La miglior birra che io abbia mai provato. Perfetta ed equilibrata nel gusto. Schiuma persistente e morbida. Per me la birra di riferimento.

a rare taste of genuine dry hopping; impressive! used to be BULLDOG; but the successor has largely out mastered its origins. best ever since brewed in belgium!

Light brown with light yellow rich cap. Rich nice pale ale taste, but without specific notes, mild afterbitterness at the root of tongue.

Very caramely beer. Seems to evolve with every sip. I prefer amber beers and this is a very particular amber beer . Slight carbonation .

It was being a little unfair with this beer, since not much people talk about it. But it is really good, smells nice and the flavour is great. The beer is cloudy, and very spicy, but the backtaste is fast.

33cl bottle, 5.8%, made in Belgium, in the trademark glass. the aroma is sweet with hops and a sent of oranges. the color is great pale amber. very nice thick off white head. a unique bubble layer coats the bottom of the glass, with a pillar rising in the middle due to the engraving on the base, the bitterness engulfs the entire mouth very pleasantly, with brilliantly balanced malt sweetness and flavour. only draw back: the after taste bitterness is unpleasant. texture is a bit thick and sticky, in a good way. average carbonation in the mouth. A Great Beer!!! one of my favorites.

33cl bottle. Pours a brown wood, clear with eggshell small head. Nose : cherry, plums, caramelized malts. Smoked and whisky notes. Sip : Oily with a small carbonation. Little sweet followed by coffee bitterness which I find amusing since it’s a pale beer. Caramel and dried fruits are still present. Honestly it’s a surprising beer. From taste I would say it’s more of a typical brown brown.
