COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber, craft beer with generous amounts of hops and alcohol. This copper-gold beer is a real heavyweight and a must for beer lovers. The liberal quantities of malt and bitter hops create a complex, full flavour. It starts as slightly sweet with malty aromas of chocolate, fruit and grain, while the bitter hops stand out nicely in the aftertaste. A feast for the connoisseur!

Thanks to OleR for sharing a 330ml bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Lasting, lacing-layer covering a cloudy golden body. Dried fruity and mid-sweet malts to the nose. Rounded flavour of dried fruits alongside yeasty fruits and spices upheld by citrus bitterness towards the ending. Alcohol warmth. Satisfying (Oslo, 15.09.2012).

Mooi oranje amber,prima schuim. Ruikt erg zoet maar smaakt vrij bitter. Grappig, dat verwachte ik niet. Wel lekker maar had nu meer zin in zoete meuk :)

Bottle. Light amber. Light citric, roasted, light caramel. A bit of bitterness. Not really found of that amber compared to many other.

CraftBeerNick (2129) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle at home, 7th January 17. Pours a light translucent copper. Aroma is yeast, sweet malts. Taste is bitter, yeasty, some caramel. Great bitterness, with some good balance from the malt, almost a bitter Belgian yeasty imperial IPA, complex and drinkable

This might be a beer for connaisseurs, but to me it’s just horrible. I did a full body shiver after my first sip. Way too bitter.

cluricaume (10) - FRANCE - OCT 31, 2016
Sweet yeasty Belgian style amber ale. Just enough bitter to balance the boozy Belgian alcohol taste. Saved from a more negative note for me by being mildly complex, and curious enough to drink on...

Espuma beige que se va disipando, color dorado-ambar y opaco, aroma dulce en nariz, sabor potente por la alta graduación pero que empieza con unos matices dulces y un final seco.
