White colour with a generous white head with small bubbles and good duration. Aroma is fruity, apple is present, slightly citrus hints, cookies and yeast. Flavor is slightly sweet, fruity, spicy. The final is light bittery, alcoholic and dry.

This is pretty darn tasty. Quite a bit of bubbly spiciness and a slightly sweet flavor. Pretty good, though steep in price.

tomer (1678) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 5, 2013
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small bubbley head, quite clear deep gold colour, aroma of citrus sweet spices and cola, flavour of candy and spice with a touch of fruit, cloyingly sweet, thick and heavy. Fair but expected much more.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden with a huge white head. Fruity aroma with yeast and light spiciness. Sweetish flavor with maltm, fruitiness, yeast, alcohol and a drier spicy-peppery finish. Medium-bodied. Not my thing.

degbert (1105) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a high, elastic, white head. Nose has definite notes of cardamom, as well as citrus, yeast, and the usual Belgian overtones; it remains in balance and is really pleasant. Much more bitter than I expected on the front of the palate, widening out to a pastry-like sweetness and then finishing very, very long. There is something on the palate that I find out of kilter, but I can’t quantify what it is -- which bugs me. It’s all right, but if I was celebrating 150 years of something I think I’d want something more transcendent.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. hazygolden with a white head. an imperial version of regular chimay white is all this beer is. not neaded and not better then the original but not flawed or off putting. please make a 5% version next and sell it for $2 a 330ml instead of tricking people with this fancy over priced sweet boozy belgian strong. meh

SimplySike (854) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2013
75cl. Bottle. Poors hazy almost clear yellow with white head. Aroma yeast, apple, fruits, corriander, floral, little spicy. Taste loads of soft bitters, loads of sweets and a hint of sour apple Mouth-feel creamy. Great beer, loving it.

molly75 (300) - (Madrid - España), ITALY - FEB 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 [ASPETTO] oro carico, quasi aranciato, leggermente velata; schiuma bianca, fine , abbondante e media persistenza [OLFATTO] profumi floreali con un tocco fruttale che ricorda marmellata di frutta gialla. Evidenti i lieviti, malti con sentori di crosta di pane e miele. Profumi alcolici evidenti [GUSTO] in bocca prendono il sopravvento le note amare la cui azione è amplificata da una buona dose di alcool già evidente fin dall’inizio. Si presenta meno dolce rispetto a quanto preannunciava al naso,mantenendo comunque note di marmellata. Una leggera astringenza si perde in un finale speziato e pepato, con alcol evidente ma non fastidioso. [TEXTURE] corpo medio, morbida al palato, buona carbonazione iniziale. [COMMENTO FINALE] strong ale prossima ad una tripel, aromatica e con note dolci comprimarie a servizio dell’effetto complessivo, alcolicità elevata che quasi spaventa, ma che in bocca funziona bene senza impedire una bevuta fluida. Mantiene un buon equilibrio complessivo ed evoluziona in maniera interessante soprattutto nel finale con una speziatura compiacente.

A lot of coriander, medium-high sweetness, short finish. Great, white foamy head. High carbonation.
