godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, - JUN 29, 2011
amber coloured with a nice, fluffy white head. leaves lots of lacing. very complex aroma of caramelized apples, wild yeast, sweet malts and fruity esters, along with alcohol. the taste is an explosion of flavours. very well balanced, it starts off with flowers and lavender, orange zest, cereal, and apples. slight but enjoyable alcohol burn. full bodied, and finely carbonated. an absolutely incredible offering from a great brewery.

Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2014
Butelka 60cl. OCZY : piwo jest przejrzyste o kolorze pomiędzy złocistym i miedzianym. Piana jest trwała ale nie jest obfita. Piana ma kolor śnieżnobiały. NOS : piwo emanuje aromatem biszkopta i typowych estrów belgijskich, przede wszystkim morela. Do tego mocne aromaty skórki cytryny, ciasta imbirowego i subtelne aromaty przypraw takich jak kardamon, kurkuma i szafran. Rozpuszczalnik. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane i tłuste. Słodkie o mocnym smaku ciasta imbirowego z przyprawami i podkreślonych nutach moreli i owoców z puszki. Alkohol jest wyczuwalny ale nie czuć tych 10%. Gorzkość delikatna i mocno zdominowana. W posmaku wciąż dominują owocowe estry o kandyzowanych nutach i ciasto z przyprawami. Posmak jest długi i piekący. ODCZUCIA : smaczne piwo o podkreślonej "Belgowości". Świetna etykieta i super butelka. Czuje się pewien dystans, że to piwo nie było warzone w Belgii bo brakuje mocniejszego nasycenia, większej piany i więcej "funky" ale z drugiej strony robi to temu piwu na korzyść. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

gregorymconway (137) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 375ml bottle from St. Veronus. Dark for a triple, light amber, with a creamy/slightly foamy medium sized head with nice coating lacing. Quite sweet on the nose with sweet caramel, candy sugar, home-made toffee, maple syrup, plastic and peach. Bitterness on the finish that is dry and alcohol fronted. Elevated alcohol and medium-high bitterness.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Oily sweet trash water with some redeemable tartness and barrel character. The sweetness comes across like Splenda to me. Spoiled fruit and hot sour grains. Really messy oddity.

olio (6495) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Pours golden color with a small head. Stuffy and leathery aroma, some faint yeast and orange, faint herbal notes too. Fruity toffee flavor, some wood and spices with mild yeast notes and some sugar. Slight alcohol burn at the end. Decent, maybe a bit too boozy.

Aroma has strong soapy citrus notes and apricot. Also some mint. Flavour has mint, soapy apricot, citrus and grassy hops. Foamy palate. Finishes with phenolic alcohol tones. Nice, although a bit too boozy.
