TheHopster (997) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2010
(11.2 oz bottle) Hazy mango color with hefty white head. Thin lacing. Well carbonated. Taste is malty-orange sweet. Considerable alcohol (9.8 ABV) is well hidden. An off-beat option I would recommend to explore.

beerguy101 (5340) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Sampled on 5/14/2010. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 33cl bottle. Mediums sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, peaches and apricots. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots of peaches and apricots with some pineapple. The hops are herbal. A touch of yeast and perhaps a little honey. Nice soft carbonation. Finishes kind of sweet, Hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

bierkoning (11672) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle. Blonde. Just a hint of pineapple in the aroma. Sweet flavor with pineapple and mango. The sweetness hides the alcohol.

marcus (8280) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 14, 2010
Pours cloudy blond with a thin white head and a funky fruit aroma. The flavor is rather fruity for its style, but does not give any indication of the high alcohol content. Itís an interesting brew.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Pours slightly hazy light orange. Cantaloupe aroma. Taste is cantaloupe, honeydew melon, strawberries, and some white vinegar. Hmmm.

Travlr (18623) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 13, 2010
A sweetish blonde, actually sweeter than most tripels. Light body, not much character.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2010
Hazy dark blond coloured beer with some light yeast parts and a small white head. Very light carbonation. Sweet vanilla light yeasty and short alcoholic hint. Full creamy palate. Finish is light yeasty sweet,short alcoholic touched with a light short sour balanced hint. Not bad.

ChainGangGuy (4653) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Appearance: Pours a dim, dull golden body with a small, but resilient white head. The bottle was a bit of a gusher and the surge of bubbles kicked up a fine yeast sediment which imparted a cloudiness. Smell: Lightly sweet-scented nose of mildly bready malts (in the way the squishy insides of a standard-issue dinner roll tastes) with notes of ripe orchard fruits and light floral and spice accents. Taste: Soft barley and perhaps even some pils malt with just a minute amount of tanginess and a moderate amount of sweetness. Overly ripe peach fruitiness comes in with, maybe, a small hint of green apple and white grapes. Then, a bit more sweetness hits the tongue. Subtle florals. Touch of sour dough yeast character. Some slight peppery alcohol tones as you near the dry finish. Mouthfeel: A hair above medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: Not a bad lilí Belgian. Itís got a nice array of complexities and goes down fairly easy for being almost ten percent alcohol.
