Strykzone (6212) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Pudgy little 12 ounce bottle. I rolled it and got some sediment loose but there was a lot more on the bottom of the bottle. Cloudy golden beer with active carbonation and chunks of that sediment. A noisy white head doesn’t last long. Lots of rich fruit in the aroma with some spice. That fruit is tasted. Peach and citrus with yeast. Alcohol is evident. The flavor is robust and it drinks like an alcoholic fruit drink.

mike_77 (4927) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2016
Dark blond with thin head. Aroma is quite bready and also has sweet sugary fruits. Flavour is in general too sweet. Bready malts and a little yeast but lacks any real depth.

Bottle shared. Pours very hazy orange with brown sediment non-floaters. Aroma of yeast, caramel, soap, candy, light spice and toffee. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Icedwarf (1134) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en kruidig, ietwat fruitig, abrikoos en kandij. Erg goed.

jcartamdg (2860) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Pours a hazy, milky gold with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, earth and funk. Taste is earthy, sweet candy sugar, banana esters and toffee.

Un beau gros gushing surprise à l’ouverture et une mousse qui ne fini plus de gonfler. Ça commence bien... Après quelques minutes de repos, on peut attaquer. Robe jaunâtre, la mousse s’atténue considérablement, ne reste que quelques millimètres bien tenaces. Autre chose désagréable: beaucoup, mais beaucoup de grumeaux en suspension. Arômes de levures, tarte aux pommes, muscade, poire, abricot séché. Très sucré et effluves de fruits fermentés. En bouche, on continue sur la ligne sucrée. Encore cette sensation de tarte aux pommes à laquelle on aurait saupoudré du sucre brun. Un peu de muscade et abricot. Des phénols de fermentation nous parviennent aux palais, rapellant le clou de girofle. Une finale trop sucrée et envahissante. J’aurais aimé que le haut taux d’alcool se manifeste un peu plus. Texture assez épaisse, un corps trop rond pour ce style de bière.

Silvan7 (1026) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 23, 2015
On tap @ Zythos Treviso. ambrata, opalescente, riflessi aranciati,m schiuma beige chiaro, fine persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato, esteri da lievito, confettura di pesca, fico, caramello. Gusto dolce amabile, poc amaro, solo nel finale, leggerissima acidità data dalla tostatura. Oleaosa, corposa, non troppo carbonata, alcolica, rotonda. Abbastanza equilibrata. Armonica

superspak (4304) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2015
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 12/2014. Highly carbonated gusher upon opening. Pours murky bright orange color with a 3 finger fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, candi sugar, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and light pale malt notes; with good strength. Very bright aromas. Taste of big lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, herbal, floral, grass, candi sugar, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, candi sugar, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nicely dry finish. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and light pale malt flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and foamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of bright fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and light pale malt flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to sip on for the high ABV. With the combination of the difficult over carbonated pour and murky appearance, I was expecting this to taste old and malty; but it tasted spot on. A very enjoyable offering.
