Fles thuis geprobeerd met Inoven. Het is een goudgeel bier met een volle witte schuimkraag. De geur is moutig en gistachtig. De smaak is tarwe achtig, wat zoet met een licht bittertje.

330ml bottle pours dirty orange with short foamy off-white head. Subtle aromas of citrus hops, candy sugar and grassy characters. Tastes of honey, orange hops, caramel malt, sultanas, floral characters and spices. Decent carbonation and layered flavours easily hide the 8% alcohol. Mild bitter finish. A well balanced and controlled Belgian strong ale.

Voici un perroquet qui sait donner de la voix et qui a du caractère. Cette Papegaei sait clairement réchauffer avec un duo alcool/épices bien présent (l'alcool faisant davantage que ses 8 % Abv), digne représentante des bières belges fortes. En verre, nous sommes sur un blond doré (EBC aux alentours de 21), légèrement voilé et surmonté d'une mousse blanche de 5 mm d'épaisseur. Les nez est plutôt classique pour le genre mais puissant et appréciable. Nous retrouvons céréales, alcool, coriandre, agrumes, amertume et une pointe d'acidité. La première partie de la dégustation est cependant plutôt douce. L'attaque est sur des arômes de pain, de coriandre et de citron avec une pointe acide. La deuxième bouche, dans la même veine, est toutefois moins épicée et sans acidité, ce qui la rend très distinguée. L'arrière bouche quant à elle présente une amertume plus marquée sur des notes épicées et l'acidité qui refait surface. C'est à la troisième bouche que l'alcool se fait vraiment marquant sans toutefois déséquilibre l'ensemble avec un sucre et cette petite acidité le contrebalançant. Le final, élancé termine convenable la dégustation, toujours sur l'alcool mais avec une amertume plus présente en complément des épices bien présentes. Du travail sérieux!

330ml bottle BB 30 Jun 2019. Slightly hazy golden amber with small white head. Aromas of apricot, caramel, herbs, grains. Taste has pear, apricot, melon, floral & herbal notes, honey. Medium bodied, disguises the 8% ABV very well, not too sweet. Really like this.

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. Hazy pale gold body, only a small head hangs around. Sort of rustic aroma - hay, freshly cut dry meadow, vanilla & clove, dried apricot & sultana. Full body, verging on full, carbonation somewhat subdued for the style leaving it a touch flabby. Once again those rustic flavours cut through - cereal husk, hay barn, old crackers, sultana, apricot, bruised apple, a slight almost Sauternes/Botrytis dessert wine character emerges too. Reasonable sweet overall. A fascinating brew!

Blonde tirant sur l'amertume, manquant ce je ne sais quoi qui aurait pu la rendre plus complexe. Puissante et aromatique.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Many thanks for this beer to mrs Eva from Bar Expert Polska. Piana srednia jak na belga ale trwala do końca. Mocna bananowo morelowa barwa metniste bardzo, drozdzowy zapach. Smak slodowy, ulozony suszone morele, pomarancze i mus bananowy. Fajne treściwe, alkohol nie wyczuwalny i do tego wyraźnie chmielne piwo. Skromna etykieta ale odważne w smaku i treściwe jest to piwo. Warto było czekac na piwo z tak dalekiej podrozy.

Carbonatation moyenne, mousse correcte, une légère acidité mais un goût global assez sucré. Dit comme ça, ça ne semble pas folichon et pourtant, elle s’avère être très agréable, au point que l’on a pas l’impression qu’elle tape à 8°. Très bonne surprise pour ma part.

Hazy golden colour, with a two fingers head that doesn’t hold, No lace. Smell of fruits, oranges, pears, spices (is that allspice?). Sweet palate, oily, medium body. Taste of fruits, pear, spices. I don’t know why I think it would be great with some blue cheese.
