daniel0017 (441) - Yukon, - DEC 21, 2012
semi cloudy orange amber body with thick, frothy beige-white head of 3 fingers. aromas are very complex: musk, apricot, pear, apple and autumn fruit and notes of nutmeg and cedar??? Too complex for my novice beer somelier lore / vocab. flavor is sweet with some lingering tartness in the finish. Delightfully smooth throughout the sampling. Dangerously drinkable.

langeveld12 (349) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2016
Typical belgian strong ale but in its class one of the best I have ever tasted. Contains vanilla, banana and citrus and forest fruits. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness and between malts and hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol hardly noticeable. Very very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (8499) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Thanks to JulienHuxley for finding me to share. Bright, crisp hops in the nose, along with Belgian yeast, lemon, citrus, dough. Flavor is sweet orange and lemon, crisp malt, creackers. Lightly yeasty, with solid bitterness and great lemony fruit. A great New World Belgian Strong. Glad I finally got to try it. Why can’t more North American brewers do Belgian like this?

Halovány aranysárga színe fölött tömött, pöffeszkedő, hófehér hab fejlődik sebesen, világos árnyalata némi meglepetéssel is szolgál, miután elméletileg "belgian strong ale"-ről van szó. Karakterisztikája alapján ugyanis inkább tűnik valami vadabb, élénkebb italnak, mivelhogy tripelesen csípős, gabonás, ámde IPA-szerűen komlóvezérelt jegyeket egyaránt megcsillant úgy illatában, mint ízében, mely utóbbi amellett, hogy vibráló és könnyed, telt és gazdag is egyben. Na nem az a kirobbanó, malátaszirupos jelleg, inkább a fűszeresebb, pezsgőbb hangulatú, szénsavval alaposan teletűzdelt típus, amiben a komló a szokásosnál erőteljesebben képviselteti magát, túlsúlyba azonban nem kerül, a főzet harmóniáját sem bontja meg. Ez utóbbi jellemvonás egyébként a legnagyobb erénye az italnak, letisztult ízvilág, egyszerű, de minden szempontból kielégítő a test. Almás, száraz pezsgős, kenyeres és élesztős jegyek egyaránt megcsillannak a testben, összességében változatos benyomások sorát hordozva. Ha helyénvaló is a ráragasztott kategória, annak a könnyedebb, ha úgy tetszik populárisabb verzióját szolgáltatja, ami miatt a magam részéről talán tartózkodnék az élmezőnyben elhelyezni az italt, amellett, hogy természetesen egy kiemelkedően jó főzetről van szó.

Lore (1771) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 30, 2015
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! :-)

Lowenbrau (2868) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2015
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.
