BuckeyeSammy (543) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tart! Apricot spice aroma. Not much in the appearance category. Flavor is very enjoyably tart, notes of grapes. I want one more bottle, very interesting beer.

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2014
Special because quite strong with just a few aromas containing caramel, sugar, vanilla and some butter. Still easily drinkable but not that wide in range as expected.

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Calisky - many thanks, Fred! The beer pours out in a deep hazy golden-amber colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and wheat. Taste of gentle Belgian yeast, bread, wheat, raisins, dried fruits, caarmel and straw. Yeasty-malty sweet finish with a high alcohol finish. Nice one.

Very strong for a blond beer but surprisingly good! We can also find a back taste of lemon. Not "heavy" at all for a 8% beer!

Couleur dorée, légère mousse blanche. Nez malté, orge. Gout malt d’orge, notes raisin. Amertume en fin de bouche.

eduardovl (949) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle served in a La Trappe chalice. I’ve bought three bottles pack in a Carrefour supermarket at Divonne-les-Bains, France. A: Pours a golden yellow to orange color. Slightly cloudy. Forms a medium and thin bubbled white head. Medium to low retention and some lingering and molasses lacings left in the glass S: Very sweet. Quite fruity too. Strong notes of candy, honey, orange peel and chestnuts. Sweet grains and bready yeasts. Some spicy notes, maybe some pepper. Light notes of alcohol to such a "high" ABV T: Sweet in the mouth too. Strong notes of honey, candy sugar, orange peel, sweet malts, chestnuts, vanilla. Mild but present bitterness. Good bittersweet balance M: Medium to heavy body. Quite light to a 8% beer. Fruity bittersweet aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Good surprise for the ones expecting one more shitty french beer. Perhaps a bit too sweet and the chestnut taste is also a bit overwhelming but, in overall, an interesting Strong Pale Ale with a unique character [ BA Review @ 9/14/2013 ]

bjakk (392) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle a gift from Amy. Yellow a bit cloudy. With white foam that lasts and sticks well to the sites of the glass. Mild aroma of fruit, apricot, mixed with malty alcohol. Malt, hint of fruit with alcohol, strong grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste becoming more metalic and peppery as it grows. Medium carbon medium body.
