2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden colour with an off-white head of foam. Good malt presence. Fruity, sweet and lightly spiced. Aroma mirrors taste. However, the carbonation and heavy metallic tone to it ruin this ale somewhat. Itís also a little on the sour-dry side. Not really refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice clear golden coloured body with a thinnish slightly off-white head that dies very quickly. Aroma of metal, apricots, strong malt, alcohol and yes - more metal. Medium-bodied; Strong malt presence with a bit of alcohol, some light apricot and peach flavours and a lot more metal and cardboardie malt. Aftertaste has alcohol, but not overly so. More malt and metal, but once again, not horrible. Overall, according to the rankings I was expecting much worse, but wasnít so bad, and to be perfectly honest, the 8.8% abv was pretty well hidden. I sampled this 323 mL (odd size) can, purchased from 7-11 (yes, they have them everywhere) in Singaore, Singapore 25-August-2007, sampled at home in Washington on 09-March-2009, while this batch (according to the bottom of the can) was brewed on 01-August-2007.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden, clear beer, well-carbonated to small, yellow head. Nose of alcohol, sherry, higher alcohols, and despite all this, delicate. Sherry again in the taste, sweet, but not too sweet; cookies and fine grains. Bit of alcoholwarming, not really dry; medium bodied. Nice, if not really Belgian, this is quite good, IMO. According to the brewery, this ought to be a Belgian Pale strong ale.
