bellissima da vedere..ambrata con una superschiuma e tantissimi lieviti!!! aroma classico da belgian strong ale con un fruttato molto pronunciato (anche da luppolo)..sapore di lievito e malto molto accentuati,bilanciati da un amaro che si sente ma ci sta benissimo con il resto..corpo pieno e carbonazione medio/bassa..birra ottima!

teddybeer (2533) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
On tap @ Animal. Golden with an off-white head, good and easy formation with good lasting. Aroma has fresh hoppy notes with citrus, yeasts and good maltiness. Flavor has a high presence of yeast, like a Belgian Tripel, notes of citrus with a mild bitterness, slightly caramel and marzipam. Citrusy and bittery final.

gEUS (1375) - Linden, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2013
330 ml bottle - pours deep golden with a tiny creamy and steady head. Intense hoppy noseon the pine and grass side, some fruity notes of apple qnd stoved peach. Medium yet creamy body with a soft bitterness that kicks through like a mutha in the end - first a semi-sweet ending but the finish is super dry and bitter... Long aftertaste, taste fo citrus peel, yeast, coffee bitters. This is a heavy IPA, Belgian style, not for the fruity pussies.

Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma: rotten vegatables, medicinal notes. Flavor: grainy malt, medicinal, cough-syrup, carboard, perfumy notes. This is a 10-year old bottle and may have gone bad.

BOSSbrewer (2323) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 7, 2013
I had it well chilled mad didnt agitate it but the bottle was a gusher. I ended up with about three sips in the glass. Poured a hazy golden with, obviously, enormous head. Some lacing. Very yeasty aroma. Grapefruit also. Tasted somewhat sour and tart. Fairly bitter. Some wet dog and cardboard. Medium bodied and finishes dry. From other reviews I think I got a bad bottle.
