Shark_Pants (678) - - JAN 24, 2014
Like the standard Magma, this pours a gorgeous deep fire orange colour with a large 3.5 finger off-white head. The smell is quite sweet and fruity - dried apricots, orange, pine, grassy notes and some nice strong malty aromas. The taste is really quite good - grapefruit, lightly sweetened lemon, lots of pine, bit of breadiness from the malts and the galaxy hops give it a more assertive bitterness and dryer finish than the regular Magma. Medium body, nice oily mouth coating. For my taste, this is how a IPA/DIPA should be - great balanced flavours, strong bitterness but not palate-wrecking hops.

Flaska frn Belgiuminabox drucken med lfreningen. En tydligt ldrad st DIPA som nd r helt okej tre r senare. Mycket vl- eller t o m vermogen tropisk frukt, citrus, trocadero och rejl citrusvitebeska ger en maffig smakbild.

La bire belge est inscrite au patrimoine culturel immatriel de lUnesco cest fait, ils ont vot. Je dois dire que je suis content, mais je prfre quand elle est bien matrielle dans mon verre Nous poursuivons aujourdhui la clbration, qui ira donc de St Eloi Ste Barbe pour quatre jours de fte et de commmoration. Tout comme jadis, nous avions des neuvaines religieuses, nous aurons donc nous un quatrain dans un premier temps, qui pourrait fort bien passer une neuvaine, si linspiration (divine) nous venait Autre bire des mousquetaires belges (quelle trange association), la spciale Galaxy de 2013. Niveau abv de 9 %. Couleur ambre clair, lapparence quasi brillante. Bulles fines, partout, trs vives. Mousse brun clair, bien crmeuse, stable 3 mm. Armes superbes de malt cara, fruits mrs, ft de cognac. 1re bouche la trs belle entame malt/levure/fruits mrs. Arrire-bouche avec une pointe de girofle un peu curieuse. 2me beaucoup plus intgre, trs jolie. Arrire-bouche lamertume volontaire, plus de punch. 3me grande bouche lamertume cisele. Arrire-bouche o la girofle de la 1re bouche devient un joli composant. Longueur avec de trs belles choses, des fruits mrs toujours, une texture plus corpulente. Jambes fines, serres, groupes. Levure de trs belle ligne. Alcool bien, il soutient lensemble. Finale trs grande, mais sans envol vritable. CONCLUSION: le mousquetaire a jou de lpe, et il a essay de battre la Magma de base, qui contrairement ce quil pensait, se rvlait impossible battre mme en faisant appel la galaxie Il a jou sur tous les tableaux, le malt, lamertume, la texture .. mais ny est point parvenu Que lon ne se fasse point de remords .. Il ne sagit que dun "one shot", bires condamner tout va, parce quon ne peut les racheter .. Dornavant, hormis ceux que jai encore et que je commenterai, les brasseurs nont qu se les boire eux-mmes One shot is not Au moins, la nomination de la belge belge maura permis de confirmer une dcision dj mrie (Avec la conviction bien entendu que la bire est un produit de recette, donc on reprend sa recette comme Mamy son livre de cuisine tout griffonn, et on refait sa recette .. tout simplement... Le reste est du vent ou de largent, ou comme disent les franais trs joliment, du pipeau ).

From Belgium in a box. IN Teku glass. Playing Magic Duels. BBF Jul 16. Very foamy. Although old, galaxy hops still provide a nice bitterness that compesates the excessive fruityness of the normal troubadour magma, making it a more enjoyable brew. It could have been great fresh.

Alengrin (4892) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Vintage bottle of three years old at Kulminator, cheers to Stphanie for sharing. Very thick, towering, frothy, rocky, egg-white head, initially clear amber orange colour with fierce sparkling, hazy with deposit. The aroma has suffered less from cellaring than I had expected: a sweet exotic hop fragrance is still very much alive, with hints of ripe mango, orange, lychee, armagnac, biscuit, Grand Marnier, abbey cheese, whisky, apricot, jute, white pepper. Lively fruity onset, mango, lychee, kiwi, green banana, very elegant from the start, fizzy carbo but fitting well for a beer like this, supple caramelly malt sweet core, biscuity, evolving into a long, drying finish of aromatic, fruity hoppiness, with the lychee-, mango- and passion fruit-like notes of the Galaxy still unabated after three years though already turning a bit cheesy (unexpectedly of course), blending well with residual juicy maltiness, warming brandy-like alcohol and pleasantly bready yeast hints in the end. This was a wonderful beer, too bad I never had it in young condition, but even a three years of age it was so enjoyable that it makes my mouth water just reminiscing about it - though this may have something to do with Kulminator nostalgia as well...

minutemat (4886) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
75cl bottle shared with Mike & Simon F @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy murky brownish orange with large off-white head. Big citrus orange aroma jumping out the glass, clearly massively hopped. Big hoppy taste with bucketloads of orange and tropical fruit with a touch of Belgian spice. Very good this, but the tripel yeast pips it to the post.
