Bright golden colour with a large white head. Very active carbonation with a few floaty yeasty bits. Fruity aroma with some yeast and band-aid. Warm flavour with more band-aid of the top, followed by some spiciness (cinnamon, clove), citrus and hops. Pleasant, belly-warming stuff.

Goldencoloured beer. Pretty hoppy taste and aftertaste. Quite a lot of different spices, not very fruity IMO, slightly alcoholic. Certainly not the best beer in the world, still nice though.

A thin white head and light gold body. The aroma is bananas, peaches and some diapers. Also a hint of clove. The taste is fairly spicy with some bananas, cinnamon and even a little walnut in the finish. A decent brew, but a little light on taste. I would like a little more body and flavor.

Very good beer for the style. My fiancee got very very drunk one time on this beer, and I’ll always laugh to myself about it. She picked it because of the elephants on the label... what a beer she happens to pick!

This was the first non US produced Macro Crap I had ever drank therefore it will always have a place in my heart. It may not be the greates of the Belgian strongs, but it has the best bottle!

This was okay, the 8.5% does not really come to the forefront, so at least it does a decent job masking the alcohol. To me, I just could not pinpoint any dominant flavorings or overwhelmingly
positive attributes. Certainly different, for some reason though, this uniqueness is hard to describe. Some fruity overtones and decent on the
palate. A pretty good ale, yet for the price I expected much better. This brewery cons the general public by putting their beer in these inticing bottles I swear.

Pours a cloudy gold with some white head. Aroma is kinda carmely, alcoholish, and fruity. Taste is very very sweet and strong, way too much caramel taste if you ask me and a little spicy finish. Overall, Im not a fan.
