330ml bottle. pours a slightly hazy amber. has quite a big head too that lasts a while. aroma is of hops, citrus fruit, yeast and some alcohol. taste is great. nice full mouth feel, you get citrus and hops at first. followed by caramel, yeast and alcohol.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Full golden colour, thick white head, an unusual pillar of carbonation from the very bottom of the glass. Quite a heavy Belgian ale, syrupy and sweet, honeyish, felt a bit hefty on the palate. The alcohol didn’t burn but somehow weighed. I think my personal taste for these types of beer is either more yeasty, or more hoppy, or more light and crisp - this wasn’t awful by any stretch but not quite to my liking.

tricksta_p (627) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2013
Flowery sweet, aroma of ripe (dark) fruits, candy. Light spicyness (coriander?). This is an easily drinkable beer despite its hefty alcohol content. It actually caught me by surprise. Don’t let the lame faux Robin Hood archer dude picture on the bottle turn you off, this is a nice beer if you enjoy sweet Belgian strong ales.

Holmen1 (2001) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2013
Flaske fra "Super Welcome Shop", i parken ved hotellet: kl. 18 i sommervarmen var denne farlig lys og bedragersk lett for sin voltstyrke. Godt at hotellrommet bare var noen få skritt unna. God, men faktisk var det mer smak i Val-Dieu Blonde som vi hadde samtidig.

McTapps (2980) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2013
Pours out in a clear golden colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Nose of Belgian yeast and hops. Taste of ripe hops, light Belgian yeast, straw, roses and honey. Hints of caramel. Easy to drink despite its high ABV. Solig and good Belgian one, but way away of being something special.

Irgendwie sind sie doch alle gleich. Recht getreidig mit viel Alkohol im Hintergrund und viel Kohlensäure. Dieses hier ist noch etwas mehr in der Vanille und Karamell angesiedelt, ansonsten Durchschnitt.
