Full body - staying head - amber color with a spicy, malty palate that finishes very fruity with complex hoppy undertones.

brokensail (11821) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Cloudy golden orange pour with a white head. Kind of just a sugary nose without much complexity. Some citrus peel, yeast, and a mild clove spice note. Some fruity esters of pear and apple. The flavor is fairly fruity with the same pear and apple, as well as a lot of sweet sugar. Some bread notes, a bit of yeast, and light spice.

foxo82 (729) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from Brother David. Yes this is strong - taste is dominated by strong alcohol and the dry, fruity finish means this could almost be confused with a white wine. Lacks the depth of flavour or complexity of the top end Belgian strong ales such as Kwak or the Chimays but still a more than decent way to slip into unconsciousness.

Freaky_tiki (654) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
Not the greatest Belgian by any means, but not sure some of these low ball scores below are really accurate. Minimal nose & a golden pour that offers a bubble bath style foam that disappears quickly. Fairly tasty with flavours of yeasty graham crackers, faint apple cider, & candy store syrup. Mrs Tiki steals a sip -- gasp! -- & she loves it (keep in mind she generally snubs beer aside from the odd Belgian).

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2014 Bottle from 0,33 cl. Golden blond with white head. Taste wise it is yeasty, spiced with some fruity tastes. Not that special. Expected more when looking at the bottle, it’s a shame...

Tussen donker blond en blonde kleur in, geur laat je in de waan, want hij heeft niet een hele diepgaande geur. Smaak is ook Appart, soms zelfs iets van kruiden als kruidnagel en laurier . Appart te noemen maar niet geheel mijn ding

Bit sour on the nose, spicy, alcohol. Alcohol dominates the taste as well, also some malt undertones, apples, spices. I didn’t really enjoy it.

Alengrin (2592) - BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Strong, misty golden blonde version of Augustijn with good fizz and thick snow white head. Fruity and estery, yeasty, crisp with backbone of caramelly malts, sharpish carbo, sourish accent, herbal hop bitterish finish with warming alcohol. Duvel-inspired but not quite there.

Borup (6434) - Albertslund, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014

Karstenborg (374) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2014
Golden color with a big white head. Aroma is apples, spices and yeast. Taste is way to bitter and too much yeast. Medium carbonation.
