The aroma is sweet and malty; cloudy, medium-amber with a long-lasting head; nicely smooth and thick; initially sweet, then the taste turns to alcohol with just a slight amount of bitterness - unfortunately, the alcohol dominates

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vrij zwaar bier, dat is te merken in de smaak. Deze is vrij zoet, caramel, honing, suikers. Maar niet slecht. Drinkt lekker weg en voor een Frans zwaar bier best wel te drinken.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber colour with white head. Visually low-medium carbonation.
Aroma with noticable presence of an alcohol, at the same time you can detect caramel, honey and some spices.
Flavor is similar: explicit presence of an alcohol, taste is sweet, with notes of honey, candy sugar and caramel, but at finish you can also detect hop esters: pine, grass, with some floral elements.
Body is stick-mouthful, carbonation is low -soft.
Proper belgian strong ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a 2" beige head with decent retention. Body is a cross between golden yellow and amber and held to the light it shows clouding from fine particulates. Smell is really good with malt and caramel. Taste is rich with malt, caramel, and toffee, and it’s creamy and sweet. There’s a medium-long finish which feels like you just ate a sweet dessert.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear orangey amber color, topped with a fairly small whit head. Quickly settling. Sweet malty aroma, lots of bubblegum notes, in a way quite funky aroma. Taste is sweet and malty, some fruity notes, strong, presence of alcohol obvious. I don’t like it - too strong and too sweet.

Clear amber orange beer, small off-white head. Nose is caramel, malt, some alcohol, sweetness, spice, hop notes. Flavor has malts and caramel, some orange notes, hints of yeast, hops, spicy alcohol. Finishes pretty boozy, lingering caramel, orange and booze. Too boozy for me.
