2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle. Pours golden with small white head that quickly disappears. Nose : booze, caramel malts, butter bread toast. Sip : oily and smooth. Decent carbonation. Sweet and cloying. Very malty and seams they forgot to hop it more generously for more balance. The beer is more for the booze and I must admit, I feel already somehow tipsy after couple of sips. That would be, I hope, the last time I drink it.

Elle est forte et ca se sent !
Blonde à la robe paille et au col sympa qui laisse une pellicule de mousse sur le breuvage. Aromes legers de caramel et de pain grillé. Un peu trop sucrée. Elle est bonne mais elle tape avec ses 10% et ça passe pas inaperçu !

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden beer with a high and long head. Not very strong aromas. Sweet notes mainly from yeast: banana, apple . In mouth is sweet, médium bodied and warm. Alcohol is clearly perceived, not pleasant for me. Beautiful look but disappointing aroma intensity. In some aspects it remember a white wine (aromas and alcohol). I must say that it was served too cold for the style.

Przecietne i mocny odor etanolu ktory mi przeszkadza. dominuje zarowno w smaku jak i zapachu. Dla mnie to strong lager słodki, slodki i alkocholowy. Odrzuca mnie na mile. Chyba nawet polowy nie wypilem.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 330 ml, at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 10%.
Clear deep orange colour on the body, snow white on the tall head. Soapy, with good retention and nice lacing left behind.
Aroma mostly of malts, with sugars and alcohol following.
Too strong taste, sweet with malts and sugars, but the alcohol taste overpowers everything else.
Average to high carbonation, medium thin body.
Overall, not good for a belgian strong ale, maybe if it advertised as a malt liquor would be better. For all of us. I can already feel the headache of the morning after.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Biondo carico e schiuma bianca. Aroma dolciastro e alcolico; gusto maltoso piuttosto classico per lo stile con note delicatamente fruttate. Il finale è guastato dall’alcool che diventa invadente e fastidioso, rovina l’equilibrio gustativo complessivo. Non è ripugnante, ma non vale nemmeno la pena ordinarla.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Brussels. Rated on 20.07.2010
Aroma has grainy and yeasty notes, fruits, some floral notes and alcohol. Flavour has slightly grainy malt, some fruits, yeasty notes and alcohol. Not very good, I expect much more from a 10% Belgian strong.
