Trs grande bire, bourre de talents, qui ne demandent qu sexprimer. La lgende de Tijl Uilenspiegel a certainement bien inspir les brasseurs. Mon exemplaire tait jeune, vif, et titrait bien sr 7 % abv. Couleur dor brillant. Apparence o de la levure sest mise en suspension. Bulles moyennes partout dans le verre, bien vives. Mousse bien crmeuse, genre Chantilly, qui tient 1 cm. Armes de houblon fin, mi-fleuri mi-amer, orge, fruits blancs. 1re bouche bien soyeuse, sur un trs bel ensemble fin, au houblon aromatique en un. Arrire-bouche bien malte, avec des fruits et un pointe de curaao. 2me la splendide texture, avec lamertume fine un peu en avant, mais un assemblage trs fin. 3me lquilibre fantastique, au houblonnage splendide. Arrire-bouche dune finesse et complexit magnifique. La longueur est un modle de progression: finesse, saveurs, amertume, malt, petite pice. La levure est digne de cette bire, grande et fine la fois. Lalcool est parfait pour une blonde de base, et je dirais mme quil est presque apte une triple, et pourtant je ne suis pas facile sur le sujet. La finale ne peut dsemparer, elle ne le fait pas. CONCLUSION: trs grand brassin qui aurait vraiment bien plu aux personnages de Tijl Uilenspiegel, qui sont des bons vivants, amateurs de bonne table, sur laquelle doit se trouver bien sr une bonne bire en complment. Je dirais mme que celle-ci mrite bien plus une dgustation fine au coin du feu, car elle montre tant de saveurs fines quelle mrite de descendre calmement dans votre gosier. Mais il y a aussi des coins calmes Damme pour savourer cette bonne bire au coin du feu, ou au bord du canal sur les herbes de la berge. Ceci permettra de faire une longue rflexion pour attribuer une cote 4,9 ou 5 ..., mais il ny a rien reprocher cette bire, mme les matires en suspension au versage, parce quelle taient aussi dans la straffe toeback et quelles nont pas gn cette magnifique bire.

A beer to drink all evening. Nice, smooth, enjoyable. Hop and citrus aroma. Orange/amber colour, beautiful head. Bit cloudy. Sweet, light, spices, fruity, smooth. A bit more hop bitterness in the end.

Big thanks to maeib for this bottle, cheers Mark. Hazy orange with thin white head. Hop, yeast, tangerine, bit of cream on the aromas. All these flavours carry on into the mouth and are added to by some whiskey and candy sugar. Good fruit throughout and an extremely enjoyable beer.

omhper (24322) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2006
[Bottled at Monks Caf, Stockholm] Cloudy golden, impressive head. Inviting aroma of lingonberries and almonds. Medium sweet with plenty of malt and soft mouthfeel. Fruity, estery and yeasty with mild caramelly malt flavour. Drier finish with some grassy hops. A thoroughky well made beer with good balance.

Hazy unfiltered golden yellow with thick white foam head. Quite bitter hop taste, tongue tickling through high carbon content. Lasting taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In bottle from Ninas. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel, candy sugar, lemon, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter and quite dry to finish. Lovely!
