While this is a good beer, much better choices exist for the style. This beer has a bit of distinctiveness in the taste department, but after enjoying a good portion of it, sugary sweetness weighs on the finish and the malt profile is lacking.

Bardzo alkoholowe, co zabija praktycznie to piwo. Poza tym w aromacie i smaku typowo belgijskie.

Suprisingly light for a beligan strong. Pours a heavy white head and has aromas of fruit and citrus.

Bottiglia 33 cl
Birra di un bel biondo intenso, schiuma bianca non molto decisa. Un po’ pungente all’olfatto, sviluppa buone note acidule in bocca, con un corpo pieno ma non troppo, leggermente astringente al palato. La decisione del malto ruba la scena al luppolo. In generale discreta birra, ma non all’altezza della sua fama.

330ml bottle at the Garnet. Crazy effervescence which seems to never let up. Huge foam head with thick lacing over a transparent bright straw body. Tropical fruit hop aroma is present alongside some citrus, orange zest, and alcohol. Quite light bodied with exceedingly well integrated alcohol.

Pours a clear, light straw colour. Quite minimal white head and high on carbonation. The prominent smell I am picking up is toffee and floral notes. This is a 9% beast, and it shows in the taste. I think the taste is very heavy on alcohol and the aftertaste is somewhat bitter. I think there are many better choices.

"sea of white foam red, ornage/yellow beer, highly carbonated, nice prickly mouthfeel. smells and tastes of spices...pepper...somewhat sweet with a gentle bittering in the finish. nicely done, but probably not worth the $$$."

Excelente. Muito saborosa. O barril de 5 l está a R$ 229,00. A garrafa de 330 ml está R$ 20,90 no pão de açúcar.

330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
A: First of all, the bottle art. Beautiful white (painted) bottle with blued label, pink elephant, crocodile and Chinese dragon. Very nice. Pours a pale clear yellow color with a big aired bubbled white head. Medium retention and some lacings left
S: Complex. Sweet and fruity smell. Honey. Flowery hops. The traditional Belgian yeasts. Hints of cinnamon. Sweet malts
T: Follows the nose. Malty, fruity and yeasty. Bit sweet upfront followed by quite citrus hops. Bitter-sweet Belgian style. Balanced and good
M: Heavy body. High carbonation. Bit molasses.Nice bitter-sweet balance. High drinkability
O: Traditional Belgian strong pale ale. Great Beer!
