UPDATED: JUL 22, 2016 Tap@Taphouse. Pours almost clear amber with small head. Aroma is sweet malty, slightly fruity with ripe fruits and has some honey and caramel. Taste is sweet and malty with biscuit, caramel, overripe fruits and some honey. Hops is almost absent but finish is sweet, alcoholic but semi-dry. For the type the alcohol should have been better hidden.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copenhagen 6/5 2016. 75 cl bottle from Mad & Vin. Nice bottle design with a real cork that you have to use a Corkscrew to get rid of. "Super" written in capital letters on the label to get your expectations up. Pours hazy and murky orange amber with small white head. Disappears almost immediately leaving small island of foam floating around. Aroma is quite sweet. Sugary honey, sweet banana and Belgian yeast. Soft carbonation and medium thick palate. Taste is sweet and quite one-dimensional. It does not have much resemblance to an Belgian beer and "Super" is taking it a bit too far in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 (75 cl bottle courtesy of my family, cheers! Lot: 274/150; BBD: December 2017) Poured at 8 degrees into a Westvleteren chalice reveals a clear dark amber with fizzy carbonation and two finger tan head that recedes somewhat yet leaving surface film and nice lace. Aroma has the complicated malt bill profile reminiscent of beers like tripel karmeliet or Rochefort 8. Dominant notes of green apples, toffee, dust and citrus. Oily texture, medium body and a relatively short slightly warming finish. Flavour has sweetness but ends on a more drying bitter note due to the hops. It’s decent and drinkable but the distance to Belgium is still visible in my opinion.

Caramel, banana in the end. Some Sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, rather low bodied, not so interesting, but still good belgium strong ale.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Birra molto interessante e saporita, ma che non esplode. Bruna, dalla schiuma che scompare subito e completamente. I sentori percepiti al naso e in bocca sono deliziosi, tra i quali emergono caramello, prugna, frutta secca e un buonissimo liquoroso. Purtroppo piuttosto acquosa e piatta sulla lingua per essere una Belgian Strong ale da 8º. Apparenza e sensazioni al palato quindi decisamente da migliorare. Ancora una volta, Baladin si distingue per le sue birre saporite, ma che non convincono a pieno.

Bevuta alla spina..... super.... super.... super per niente. Un dolcionazzo assurdo. Peggiorata moltissimo rispetto al passato. Tanto vale bersi una ceres strong che non é super uguale ma allappa meno. Finale ... per fortuna finisce...
