Mainuh_man (258) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aromas are rich malt, butterscotch / butter. Flavor is fairly sweet, with bready malt and bubblegum. Mild, herby hops to balance it, but mostly rich malt. Full body with a sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, tasty enough, decent malt character, but fairly unidimensional.

Theydon_Bois (12680) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle at De Kelk, Brugge, 17/10/14. Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is malt forward, booze fumeage, spice, sweet, caramel, dark fruit rinds. Taste comprises candied fruit peel, earthy notes, spice, straw, bitter fruits. Medium + body, fine carbonation, lightly warming alcohol in the close. Ok Belgian Strong, drinkable and doesn’t get too sweet or cloying, doesn’t deliver too much when considering the ABV mind!

RW80 (1273) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: A quite clear golden colour with steady 2 fingers sized head Arroma: Belgian yeast and straw. Taste: caramel, Belgian yeast ,bread, Apricot and floral hints, quite estery but dull, no real finish except for a slight increase by the alcohol which shows up faintly. medium body, average carbonation. A bit blend Belgian strong ale, their are better one out there.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Amber colored to straw yellow with thick white foam. Smells like a strongly alcoholic tripel - wine graps and sauerkraut are immediate associations I get. The mouth feel is temperamental and fizzy, and the taste contains rock candy, grapes, apple cider vinegar and alcohol. Less complicated than I prefer my tripels to be - too much alcohol in the taste.

For whichever reason, there just isn’t much to smell here. The color is like that of an American malt liquor existing for no other reason than for rapid intoxication at neglidgable cost. I guess it smells like a lightweight househould oil if you strain your nostrils hard enough (think 10wt.) I was expecting something dark, but instead got this oily, filtered biscuity yeast beast, bright as the sun. At least I like the smell of a good working garage shop or I would have to fail this beer entirely.

Clear. Little, airy head. Aroma of grains and hops. Medium body, average carbonation. Bitter taste, a bit metallic.

stevoj (2866) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Overall yeasty and malty , some melted butter , smooth and slick . Some hop dryness and bitterness at the finish. Not much of a head a pale gold body, but lots of lacing .
