UPDATED: SEP 19, 2011 Kedvenc. (Az egyik.) A vd max. az lehetne vele szemben, hogy nőies, mert olyan kis finomkod, semmi rikt vagy brutlis lmny, ezzel szemben: tkletes harmonia s kifinomultsg jellemzi. A pohara, illetve a virgos vza-szer "korsja" igazn embertprbl, ahogy a pohr keskeny nyakban a habdug mgl a nyakadba zdul a feltorldott, aranyban jtsz narancsos vrs nedű. Tbbszr teszteltem: sokkal jobban zlik ezekből, mint brmi ms kehelyből. . * One of my favourites. The only thing you could say against this beer is that its feminine because its somewhat too genteel: this beer is not a harsh or brutal experience, but its characterized by perfect harmonies and refinement. Its not easy to drink it from its accompanying thin-necked glass, as the golden-orange tinted liquid breaking free from under the head of foam can easily end up on your chest. But after several tests I can confirm that the beer tastes much better from its proper glass than from any other kind of vessel.

I love everything about this beer. Had this at the bulldog downtown minneapolis in its own special glass, I wish I possesed the words that others have on this site to describe the joy I felt while consuming but alas I do not, give it a try you will be pleased.

VueltaBirrista (53) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2016
Color mbar rojizo muy cristalino y una espectacular corona de espuma que trago a trago va dejando un precioso encaje en el vaso. El aroma no es su fuerte, pero adelanta lo que nos vamos a encontrar cuando nos echemos el primer trago: Caramelo tostado, pltano y mucho licor. Su principio es dulce, pero poco a poco vas notando como los amargos ganan discretamente terreno. Si tardas demasiado en beberla y se va calentando, el alcohol va teniendo cada vez ms presencia (como pasa siempre con este estilo) y si no eres muy fan se te puede hacer un poco pesada y empalagosa adems de depararte alguna sorpresa al levantarte de la silla.

simontomlinson (36) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Off white frothy head stayed quite well on a murky amber coloured body with plenty of carbonation. Sweet caramel aroma with brown sugar & malts. Thick sticky body, cloying on the back. Quite sweet tasting on the front with malt, brown, sugar, honey & toffee but this gradually changes over the palate into a slightly sour back with plum, raisin, apricot & grape.

Dguste dans un verre "3 loups". Temprature de dbut 8 9. Belle robe ambre surmonte dune mousse blanc cass assez persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez assez subtil, bois et levur avec de furtifs armes fruits. Le got est domin par dagrables saveurs maltes suivies de petites touches piquantes le tout envelopp dune douceur raisonnable. En deuxime bouche des saveurs vgtales(bois et champignons) apparaissent et donnent lensemble une tonnante complexit. La finale est de longueur moyenne sans lourdeur et prolonge les sensations prcdentes en ajoutant un alcool chaleureux. Une trs bonne ambre pour ceux qui comme moi naiment habituellement pas les bires ambres. 16,5/20

Very Strange experience to drink its own glass. Strong smell and foam on top. Originally characterised taste. Must try.

Aukedebier (13) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Bought in a 750ml bottle from drankdozijn.nl. Appearance: hazy amber with small head that quickly disappears. Nose: sweet, malty, Belgian yeast and a bit of banana. Taste: Some dried fruits, like plum and raisin. Perfect carbonation; not too much or too little. A hint of herbs, from the hops. A bit sour after taste.. It taste a bit less full then it smells. Not bad, but had better.

imperial_suchy (51) - Rybnik, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Piwo ma barwę miedzianą z białą pianą. Słodki aromat suszonych owocw, nuty winne, trochę czuć alkohol. W smaku piwo jest dosyć ciężkie, słodkie, czuć suszone owoce. Czuć delikatny alkohol.

Bottle from Nisa supermarket, Hebden Bridge. Sticky-sweet with a notable strength, theres a fair amount of winter style fruit about it too. Hazed amber-red with a very thin head.
