2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
At a tasting, thanks YK23, long lasting big bubbly head, very cloudy deep orange colour, aroma of bread with citrus, fruits and some toastiness, flavour of candy sugar, yeastiness, root vegetables with hints of fruitiness and tea, almost no bitterness, light persistent sweetness. Plain and not too interesting.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy orange amber color with medium creamy tan-like head, plenty of floating particles and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, wood, vanilla and tropical fruits. Taste starts with light sweet but rich caramel malt, follows by dried fruits and yeasty acidity, firstly medicinal then warming spicy mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Nice Belgian strong ale, still not fantastic...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep hazy amber color, almost copper, with medium white/yellowish head, slowly disappearing. Smell is yeast, some fruits like mandarine, apricot/peach. Taste reveal more maltiness, caramel, honey. Medium carbonation.
From the name I expected more bitterness, so I suppose that the normal Super has to be very sweet.
Anyway, a good beer, enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour, way too much yeast floating around. Aroma is very nice with caramel notes, nutty tones amd a hint of hops. Taste is killed by overabundant yeast, other than that even more malty caramel notes and american hop becomes more noticeable. A little too much booze at taste in my opinion.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gran Bella birra, molto equilibrata, con sentori caramellati pazzeschi, persistenti, talmente persistenti che dopo un paio di minuti dalla beva in bocca rimane quel sentore di uva e frutta dolce, profumata, inebriante.
