3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ML Bottle-Pours a beautiful, cloudy golden color w/a HUGE pure white foamy head that lasts forever. Citrus, hoppy aroma, but not overpoweringly so. Definate hopps up front, but smooth & flavorful, not overpowering or offensive.Great lacing, long, full, creamy finish. This was a good beer, smooth, well balanced, flavorful, & dangerous, because it does pack a punch

Nice strong ale, but not my favorite. Lacks depth of other strong ales. Not much aroma on the nose, but bitterness does come through. Deceptively potent beer.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 A beer with a strong alcohol taste, not so subtle. Don’t be fooled by the name. I will try it again. Re-rate: my feelings about this beer remain the same.

750ml Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Very good Belgian beer that is a golden in colour, has a huge frothy head. I slightly disagree with some of the other reviewers in that I consider that the strength of this was something that was present with every sip, though unlike some it didn’t suffer the harshness that too much alcohol can give to a beer. This is a very drinkable with yeasty, hoppy tastes rushing to the fore.

One of the best beers I’ve ever had. So amazing. It’s my favorite Belgian strong ale by far. Big pillowy that ain’t goin’ nowhere. Beautiful.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, poured into a glass (not the right kind though). Large head that formed shapes of clouds. Color is very golden, and will make your mouth water. Taste is very smooth, maybe a little citrusy. Can barely notice that this is 8.5%, tastes like 5%. A fantastic beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear golden color with a hyperactivity seldom seen in beer. Massive crown. Spicy aroma that’s not unlike some cheeses. Nice spicy flavors ... almost peppery, corriander maybe. Classic.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright golden with a large head that disappeared quickly. Fruity and spicy aroma. A slightly sour shortlived aftertaste. The strength is well hidden. Refreshing.
