DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Sampled from bottle at DLD in April. Pours very cloudy amber color with a thick head. Just a slightly hoppy smell. Very interesting taste, almost like candy. Yet not that sweet. Very surprising, with Belgian specialty malt, pale ale hops, and a very easy drinking palate.

Bouteille de 750 ml de la cuvée 2007 achetée chez Bière Expert à St-Jérôme au coût de $12.99. Dégustée le 1er juillet 2009 (Dominus Vobiscum glass). Bière blonde voilée tirant sur le doré. Mousse énormément, col blanc très très épais, pas uniforme (genre meringue) et très persistant. Très très effervescente (bulles fines). Arôme de levure, de miel et de crème. Alcool bien présent mais ne ressort pas trop, assez sucrée et peu amère. Goût de levure marqué, de miel et d’épices. Finale plutôt sèche et épicée. Cette bière est complexe et bien équilibrée, se boit facilement malgré l’alcool. Cette bière est excellente et comparable aux meilleures belges, elle n’a aucun défaut flagrant.

Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head with lots of carbonation. Nose is citrus, a bit of banana some fruit and mild spice and the typical belgian yeast. Medium body. Light bitter taste with lightly sweet as well and a medium hoppy finish! Excellent!

Reimer96 (1061) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a big frothy white head and lots of lace up the glass. Aroma of citrus hops, light fruity esthers, peppery phenols, cloves, alcohol and some spicy earthy hops. Taste is grapefruit, pine, spicy saaz hops, light fruits, spicy peppery phenols, Belgian yeast and a nice alcohol warming on the finish. Nice semi dry finish with medium carbonation. Excellent Belgian golden strong ale... Best I’ve had to date!

mathieuc (983) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head that leaves light lacing only. Nose is of yellow fruits and a little phenolic (just like the belgians do it). Taste is fruity and sweet, pears is what I would say. Finish is spicy/peppery and not too long. Alcohol? Hidden expertly. Body is medium-full. A great beer, a Quebec classic I would say!

Banana cake. Bready, Apple, tart, pepper, oak, sour finish. Lovely creamy Belgian, plenty of flavors nicely coming out of the yeast.

jdobbs (286) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours murky brown with a tan head. Aroma of boozy caramel, that strong Belgian beer with a few years on it effect, also a little herbal taking the edge of the heavy sweetness coming out in the flavour. Full bodied with flat carbonation. No idea what it was like fresh, but very nice with some age.

YanIpa (144) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Couleur doré avec un superbe collet. La levure dégage des notes épicées au nez, poivre et de camomille. Houblonnage parfait : terreux et agrumes. La complexité des saveurs est bien répartie entre le floral, les épices et le sucre. Une grande bière !!!

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle, with thanks to Sebastien! Pours hazy orange with a large off-white head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is orangey, pine, caramel, some leaves, yeast, fruity. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, quite fruity, kind of reminds me of a cross between a sweet triple and a hoppy barley wine with enough age on it that most of the hop character has faded. Finish is fairly bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Mixed emotions...
