jfb (4759) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2012
(draught) pours a murky deep ruby colour with a creamy off-white head. aroma of dried dark fruit, caramel and kiwi, slightly musty with a hint of cherries. flavour is mostly the same, lots of dark fruit, with strong notes of pineapple, some caramel and a hint of pale malts in the slightly alcoholic semi-dry finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet Oslo, Vika. Fortært 31 Okt 11. Gyldenbrun. Uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer lenge. Antydning til honning i aromaen. Forsiktig mandelsmak. Tørr fruktig bitterhet i ettersmaken. På det jevne.

RichardGretton (4446) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Muddy bronze beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is lightly spiced with a good degree of bitterness. The flavour is more like a Belgian beer than an English beer with heavy bitterness, some spice and a good degree of maltiness. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (4340) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 20, 2012
Glowing amber body, big bubbly light tan head. Light haze. Big aroma, enormously fruity, strawberry, cherry, blueberry, fermented fruit, candy, wine gums, some rye. Very sweet, but rich. Oily mouthfeel, bit sticky. Very Belgian. Pretty sweet body, balanced a bit by a good amount of straightforward bitterness. Alcohol shines through. Full mouthfeel feel, not an easy drink. Over the top maybe, but I can appreciate this. End with spiced, pickled orange peel. Not super refined though. Hard for me to assign a style or think of a comparable beer. Glad I tried this.

PhillyCraft (4216) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2014
On tap at Monks Café, pours orange brown with medium sized head. Aromas and flavors are caramel and sweet malting, light honey, yeast, and hops. Finishes with hop and English tasting malts. Lighter to medium in body. Not too bad but got overshadowed by the Bo and Luke.
