Bottle via Glouglouburp. Golden color with a ton of carbonation. Smell of Dark fruit, hops, citrus, lemon peal, spice and yeast. Smell was wonderful when the head finally went down. Taste of lemons, yeast, hops, spice, citrus and malt. A hands down great brew! Thanks so much Danny!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2008 Lightish golden pour with an immense white head lacing the glass. Complex citrus and pine hops aroma with sweet banana and malt. The flavor is a bit too much for me, as if the three hop varieties are at war in my mouth. There are citrus, floral, and pine/medicinal hop flavors with a somewhat sweet finish. This is an interesting concept, but the flavor just didn’t work for me...

Superb beer. Great floral aroma. Just enough sweetness with a drier, hoppy finish. Many thanks, Dany!

750 ml bottle shared by mreusch. Pours a crystal clear gold, on the first pour, with a dense, fluffy, white head that laces nicely. The second pour is cloudy but otherwise similar in appearance. The nose is bright, citric, floral and slightly spicy (white pepper) with a red apple note in support and a touch of sourness and noble hops in the background. Medium-bodied and soft with fine carbonation and a mild, dry finish; very nice. Soft, dry red apples, faint white pepper and a nice blend of citric, grassy and soft earthy hops. This is a very nice beer. It reminds, in some respects, of Duvel with a better mouthfeel and a bigger hop backing. Thank you for sharing it with me, Matt.

750ml, 2007 bottle, with a huge thank you to Dany (Glouglouburp)! Pours a beautiful, crystal clear golden straw color with a towering fluffy bright white head that lasts forever, excellent lacing. A rare 5 in the appearance category. Aroma is some rind, zest, cut apple, citrus hops, fruits, grass, and lots of other complimentary but unidentifiable notes. Flavor is another turn, with the hops coming through a lot more, and the other qualities from the nose remaining present but pushed to the back. This is one unique beer, from start to finish, and although not at all what I’d I’d expect, does not disappoint in any way. Quite enjoyable, thanks again Dany!

Thanks to Dany for the 2007 bottle! Poured sparkly medium golden with a tall, whipped cream-like cap of whitish head.. plenty of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up a wonderful blend of sweet, toasty darker fruits, orange peel, cat pee, and peppery spices.. sweeter on the back with pale-inspired maltage. The flavor was on the sweet side with candied fruits and toffee at the core.. pepper, dusty funk, and clovey spices join some orange zest, floral notes, and warm alcohol on the edges.. finished zesty with a nice blend of spices and fruity sourness. Dry on the palate with high carbonation and great balance.. expertly-crafted and warm in the belly. This was great!

750ml bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Many thanks!

Pours a gorgeous plume of creamy long-lasting head. Definate aromas of all three hops involved. I was a bit skeptical about how these would work together, but my fears were quickly put away. Very potent esters that follow quickly behind. Pleasant mouthfeel and body. A very up-front sweetness on the sides of the tongue. The sweetness, bit of creamy character and layers of hop complexity seem a little disjointed on my palate. Overall, still very well crafted and a great blending of hops.

750ml bottle...thanks to drewbeerme for sharing this tasty treat and kudos to this being his 1500th rating.... poured a cloudy golder orange with a huge outpouring fluffy barely off-white head that took a little time to settle..... aroma of grassy/earthy hops, orange citrus zest with spices (almost saison like), and sweet candied sugary malt..... flavor was grassy non-bittered hops with a fair aount of sweeter confectionary malts with a pretty dry finish. mouthfeel was nice, very smooth and it hid the alcohol remarkably well.

Bottle from Glouglougburp. Thanks Dany! Light straw colored body with a big head. The aroma is straw, black pepper, belgian yeast, and citrus. The flavor is very earthy with a mix of spices and some banana. I didn’t care for the flavor all that much really, as it was definitely more like a tripel than a Belgian Strong.

Rating #1500! 750ml bottle, 2007 vintage. thanks to Glouglouburp for the bottle! pours hazy golden with whtie head. nose is grassy, lemon, spice, leather. flavors of sweet biscuit and alcohol initially but that evolves into a dry hay, leathery, spicey finish. lively carbonation. alcohol very well hidden. very drinkable and refreshing BSA. Thanks Dany!
