During the British Colonial Times, the English exported beer to India. To preserve the beer for a longer period, extra-hopped beers were produced (hops maintain natural preservation and add bitterness to the beer).

ForlornHope (196) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Pours well with a medium-sized white head. Not much aroma, more of sweetness than hop. Appearance - blond beer. Taste is sweet but with a good balance of hoppiness. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Nice long, bitter finish. Well-balanced with more hop than grain. A very pleasant beer indeed.

77ships (5403) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2014
33 cl. draft @ Mombasa. Clear dark amber, vanishing head. Sweet caramel, orange peel, candy sugar nose, bit sticky, light flowery hops that don’t jell & bit metallic nature that takes it down. Sweet sticky candy sugar, orange peel nature, bit metal-like, whole messes with bitter hop flowers, very dry, touch flower, bit metallic. Metallic & sticky, touch lighter, quite dry. Not bad at all but inharmonious & not all there.

Excalibur123 (263) - Soria, SPAIN - JUL 4, 2014
Presenta color amarillo anaranjado con algo de sedimento procedente de las levaduras; buena cabeza de espuma que perdura en la copa; aromas a levadura belga, flores, alcohol y lúpulo. En boca entrada suave con amargor equilibrado, notas a cítricos, especias y miel; pos gusto largo y semi-dulce con buen cuerpo y carbónico medio; compleja y bien balanceada mejora según coge temperatura, una muy buena cerveza artesana.

Shark_Pants (449) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours a nice cloudy gold with small head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of flowers, citrus and some grass. Taste is as the smell suggests, with an initial sweetness that transitions to tartness and is quite refreshing in the finish. Medium bodied. Quite enjoying this.

rondphoto (2885) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 11, 2014
@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy medium amber with an over-ambitious head that does finally settle to 1/2", thick swaths of lace. Tart caramel malt that turns a little bitter in the swallow. Easy to drink, although the move from tart to bitter isn’t common, it stays true to what it is: a Belgian Ale (of sorts).

tom10101 (3883) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Slightly hazy golden/orange with a frothy white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of biscuity malt, herbal hops, spices and light bubblegum. Taste is moderately sweet with biscuity malt, perfume notes, spices and light herbal bitterness finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Good Belgian Ale. Quenching.
