Strong ale but not much in the taste gives that away. Well balanced with a feel of weiss to it. Both mild and fresh.

Ljus med ett stort skum. Jäst och koriander i smaken, lite alkohol, hyfsat fyllig men inte min grej ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow with a large, white head. A bit hazy. Nice aromas of yeast and alcohol. Taste is big - sweet, yeast, alcohol, but they all mix very well. Long, warming finish that diminish slowly. Great Belgian Strong!

GoddamnNoise (41) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUN 21, 2016
Aroma: wheat, bread, cereal, fruits, spicy. No hints of alcohol despite of its high alcohol volume. Not a lot of aroma. Appearance: light yellow color, slightly hazy, huge white creamy head with a very good retention and nice Brussels’ lace. Taste: medium-to-high sweetness, light-to-medium bitter, moderately sour. Palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, spicy, long slightly bitter finish. Overall: Great appearance, quite good flavor, quite good finish. No hints of its high alcohol content, except for the warming effect. Crisp. Thirst quenching. Good for a hot day.

Demens (219) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2016
0,33l bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with medium lasting huge white head. Aroma: Flowers, yeast, herbs, citrus, candy sugar. Vivid. Taste: Sweet/sour well balanced start, than the sour taste drops and a light sweet mouthfeel comes with a light but intensifying bitter feel. Well made. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Medium lasting bitter finish. A very good belgian classic.

McSherman (519) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2016
leuchtend gelb, leicht opal mit stabiler weißer Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, leicht säuerlich, Weizen, Heu. Geschmacklich zuerst hefig frisch, leicht malzig, dann aber übernimmt eine recht starke Säure und der sehr prominente Hopfen, die im Zusammenspiel recht erfrischend fruchtig sind. Gutes Bier!
