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!

TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle. Smells a litttle bit sour and fruity, strong smell of yeast. The Head is medium sized, creamy and white, stays very long. The beer is orange. A little bit sour in the mouth, medium duration. Dry, medium body, medium carbonation. Nice one.

Bottle. Color: Amber, orangish. Small off white head. Taste: Rather complex. Starting fruity, turning to rather bitter and after that going to the sweet side. Caramel and slightly orange peel notes. Bittery mouthfeel at the finish. Not my all time favorite, but a nice warming beer for once in a while.

CraftBeerNick (2309) - 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.

A lager that tastes like kinda belgian-style beer. It is neither bad nor very great. I think I sorta like it, but idk... meh.

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...
