4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
opalescent golden colour, minimal off-white head; aroma of intensive fruitiness, citruses, malty-caramel sweetness, floral and earthy notes and some minimal alcohol; taste of fruits, citruses, hints of honey, malty sweetness, some spices and signs of alcohol; dry mouthfeel; amazing beer! It was the best masterpiece of a great beer tasting - at least from my side :-) thank you very much, kapusil! :-)

Keg @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 23-11-2015.
In short: belgian strong ale with alcohol well hidden.
A very clear pale golden strong ale, plenty of belgian yeast character, sweet, bready, alcohol very well integrated. Surprised by the 100/100 rating, it´s a good beer, but not the best style example.

75cl bottle shared at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Full body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with subtle bitterness. Peach, tropical fruits, citrus, spices and yeast. Good brew, but a tad too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll. Hazy yellow color, some yeast residu in it, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, lightly yeast, a soft underlying fruityness. Taste lightly malts, yeast, again a subtle light underlying fruityness probably coming from the yeast, slightly alcohol and a slight hint of fruitpeel bitterness. Very balanced, smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Impressive brew, I must admit.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours slightly hazy, golden. Thin white head, lots of lacing. Faint, floral Jasmine aroma. Taste is bitter, with faint citrus. Finishes with a powerful, astringent flavor of Jasmine and soap. Light body, soft carbonation. Deceptively light for the 10% ABV, but overwhelmingly floral and lacking balance.
