- Alcoholpercentage van 7% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seynie (188) - Tienen, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2014
Gold with a creamy head. Mildly bitter, butterscotch, some spices. Well balanced and enjoyable, better than the sweeter leffe’s of the world. Medium body, medium finish which is more sweet and dry

Diabobale (242) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Una belgian ale per antonomasia. Di bell’aspetto soprattutto, con qualche nota di demerita per l’aroma, ma tutto sommato una buona birra

eduardovl (970) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 250ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass. A: Pours an absolutely clear golden yellow color forming a medium creamy and bit soapy white head. Medium persistence and lots of lingering and molasses lacings left in the glass S: Sweet grain. Fruits and bready Belgian-style yeasts. Notes of honey. Very light flowery hops in the very end T: Follows the notes. Sweet and malty upfront. Caramel malts and bready yeasts. Notes of honey and candy sugar. Light bitter end M: Medium body and carbonation. Sweet grains and bready yeasts in the aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Average Belgian Strong Ale [ BA Review @ 8/10/2013 ]

tom10101 (3109) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014 Bottle (250 ml). Clear bright golden with a small fully lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, moderate fruitiness, grassy notes and alcohol. Taste is also quite yeasty and fruity with light herbal notes and alcohol. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Warming finish. A tad boring and the alcohol isn’t well hidden. Subpar Belgian (Strong) Ale. Not easily drinkable.

adamnowek (278) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Not a spectacular smelling blonde, but it's very smooth and balanced in taste. Mildly carbonated that goes well with the mild taste.
