33cl bottle form "Hennessy’s" pub in Lisbon. It pours a very clear light yellow color with a very long-lasting large white head. Aroma is of sweet yeast and little malty with some bananas. Taste is overall low sweet, tarty with some hints of malt, spices and it ends with a medium bitterness flavor and some alcohol warmth. It is highly carbonated with a medium body and a dry finish. A classic and quintessential Belgian ale.

Pours almost white with an enormous frothy head. Aroma of fruity earthy grains. Taste is like the aroma, lovely slightly sweet. Excellent beer.

Dank an hoppy aroma. Clear straw color. Tight white head. Hoppy up front with some herb and malt notes. Crazy crisp and refreshing for a strong beer

Light yellow color. Slightly hazy liquid. Long-lasting big white head(foam). Aroma citrus but not really strong. Maybe some hops as well. Good body form the belgian school [(or Skål) I don’t know hihihih]. Lively carbonation. Overall it looks really nice. Generally,I don’t love Belgian Strong Ales but this one is special product.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L42401 0224. AROMA: esters aromas reminiscente of oranges and some pears. low sweet malt background. very low no non-existent hop character. some spicy alcohol aromas. APPEARANCE: light gold color with a bit of haze. large white head that persists for very long time. characteristic viscosity leading to belgian lacing. TASTE: faint fruity flavours mixed with a low sweet background. medium bitterness that lingers beyond a dry finish. some spicy alcohol notes. PALATE: medium-low body with high carbonation. some astringency is present as some alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a classic but now it seems with less overall quality.

Pleasingly sweet floral aroma. A suble caramel-honey taste with good body and a citrus finish. Amber appearance with a cloudy complexion. Very pleasing drink overall, though best sipped than quaffed!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity, flowery, complex ale with a somewhat annoying champagne-like carbonation and noticeable alcohol in the finish. A little too mild for the high abv.

Again, given the ratings i found here on RB, i found this beer 60 miles away and at $20 a 4pk, was slightly concerned, but took the leap anyway. FIRST tried drinking from snifter (as i do ALL Belgians), VERY lackluster on ALL counts. Now, I’ve NEVER been a big "the glass makes the beer" follower, but on my LAST bottle, tried in a tulip Sam Adams glass and was shocked at the difference, was like a totally different beer on all counts. Will I buy again, no....but I NOW am a firm believer in the addage that the right glass DOES make or BREAK the beer
