Poured into a tulip glass. We bought two bottles last year and were not impressed so we held onto one bottle for a year. It poured with a rich golden amber and had a soft white head. The beer stated that it was best before July 11. Having it today we both thought it was a lot better than last year. It had a nice pineapple aroma with a champagne texture. The beer has a very earthly flavor. Were glad we waited a year. The beer definitely changed for the better.

0,75l Flasche. Goldenes Bier mit toller aber relativ schnell schwindender Schaumkrone. Malziges Aroma mit einer Note nach Pinie und Honig. Im Geschmack relativ viel Kohlensure, wirkt deshalb am Anfang etwas nach Schaumwein, danach schmeckt man Malz, Honig, Mandel... Gelungenes Belgien Ale!

75cl bottle from the factory, 15?. Light Amber color, clear, big spumante White head. Aroma is malty, syrup, grains, raisins, honey. Taste sweetish, high carbonation,.spritzy, yeast. Strong, alcoholic but but excessively. Quite refined but not worth the price imo.

S_Side_Smitty (763) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2016
2008 vintage. Pours orange with a small white head and some yeast floaties. Aroma is super ripe black grapes & a champagne like quality. Taste is dry with super ripe, verging on noble rot, concord grapes with a little pear and a distinct champagne-like bite for the finish.

ALIBALI (1551) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2016
Definitiv in vielerlei Hinsicht ein aussergewhnliches Trinkerlebnis der anmutigen Art. Nicht nur die wunderschne Flasche erinnert an Sekt. Das Mundgefhl und die prickelnd spritzige Geschmacksexplosion lassen ebenfalls stark an Perlwein denken. Belgisch/Atemberaubend/Honigs sind nur einige Beschreibungen die einen in den Sinn kommen. Der Alkohol sehr hintergrndig und das Bier in seiner Gesamtheit extrem ausgewogen. Wahnsinn!!!! Vor der Bierothek in Bamberg verkstigt. Toddys Gabe. 20 Euronen das groe Flschen.

aleksander9 (1574) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Golden with white head. Stale pilsner, Belgian yeast and spicy alcohol. Sweet, caramel, cloing and floral finish. Overall: Regular beer in fancy clothing. The emperor is naked.
