33cl bottle with colourful cover art (typical for the brewery) and a standard pressure cap served into De Molen stemware in Belfort, France. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a three finger head of nice soft delicate cream, good fuzzy foamy thickness, and great retention for the high ABV. I'd estimate it at about five minutes. Colour is a cloudy orange-gold. Appealing.

Sm: Musty off-cream is all me broken nose picks up. All apologies, lads. It's a very light aroma.

T: Creamy open to orange peel citrus ester hop body atop a full and expressive barley foundation. Very clean and clear cut. Act breaks are precise, with a troublesome dying stale cream finish buried beneath the barley note's attempt to cover up the flaw. Well balanced albeit simply built. I wouldn't call it refreshing, but for 9% abv it's rather impressive in this regard. The orange ester in particular is a highlight of the taste.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but too thick. It's got too much body for the relative lack of hops. Aside from the overdone thickness, the texture suits the taste.

Dr: Very drinkable, especially for 9% ABV. The price is very reasonable by French standards, even though it's an import. It's a good evening beer. I'd have it again. All this said, it's something of a disappointment coming from the same brewery that does the Delirium series.
