Aroma of orange, coriander, spices.
MEdium to full body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, bubbles coming up all the time.

According to the legend, some Eastern Europeans mercenaries hanged a number of Belgians back in the 17th century hence the name of this brew, purchased at a very good price in Belgium.

It's a decent and very clear Belgian Pale Ale, at only 5,9%.

If ever back in Belgium, I'd purchase it again. I don't know how available it is outside of this kingdom. Cheers

Pale blond color with white head. Aroma has spicy yeast esters with white peppercorn, herbs and coriander. Taste starts slightly sweet and malty with the same yeast notes. Finish is more bitter and earthy with a generic spiciness. Body is light and effervescent. Overall it's a well made, classic belgian pale ale.

From www.cervezasespeciales.com. Not a bad beer, although the most memorable of it is its horn-shaped glass.

Golden color with a huge fluffy head with good retention and apparent carbonation.
Sweet fruity aroma with predominant notes of Cointreau liquor, sour dough and apricot, mildly herbaceous.
Flavor with notes of herbal hops, ripped oranges, coriander, lemongrass and pears. Dry aftertaste with a mild but relatively higher bitterness.
Light to medium body with very active carbonation. Alcohol of 5.9% abv is well hidden and a complement to its flavor.
Above average Belgian Blond Ale given it is well attenuated and not too sweet with a somewhat relatively higher hop addition, all making it less cloying.
It does age well.

Pours golden, almost clear, fluffy two finger head that lingers for a while, sticky lace and some traces left afterwards.
Smell of bread dough, some kinda sour citrus, touch of Belgian hops, coriander, and a big floral note.
Taste starts with acidic fruit, lots of apple and pear, some oranges (with peel) bringing in some sourness, all of which gets stuck straight into the fluffy bready malts. Some hints of acacia honey, floral and spicy herbs follow, with coriander, pepper, faint juniper berries and lemongrass, even some hints of spruce. Grassy hops in the finish, more than mildly bitter, but not totally appealing.
Medium body and carbonation. Yeasts dominate the aftertaste, a bit muddled and chaotic, also some lingering malts.
It was ok, but a bit chaotic and definitely in need of some balance.
