COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

I really like this beer, but as far as Belgian beers go, itís not the best. I suppose itís just not malty enough for my taste.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Like most other Belgian Strong Ale's I've tried, this one is a bit strong on the carbonation. Nice pleasant aroma. Strong alcohol presence. I probably need to visit this beer a second time in the near future.

My first Belgian Ale. A strong flavour one would not expect from the pale yellow colour. It had nice body, if you could find it through the carbonation. Interesting sweet/perfumey nose and finish.

strong hops, floral like aroma, golden blond coloring, medium on the palate, starts sweet, and finishes with a spicy peppery taste. very enjoyable beer, with a nice kick.

A really tasty Belgian Strong Ale with a major kick. Well-balanced. It can really sneak up on you.

This is one of the great ones. I had this years ago and remember loving it, now I had the opportunity to have a couple for the record. The head is monstrous and doesnít go away. In fact, I poured the first one too hard and ended up sucking up some of the head. I typically roll the foam in my mouth until it dissipates, but it never did. You could throw a bucket of salt on this head and itís not going anywhere. Anyhow, back to the beer. Huge perfumey aroma with some alcohol somewhere in the background. The perfuminess exists in the foreground and makes way for some sweetness and some very subtle hop flavors courtesy of Saaz. A real treat.
