3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts as well as some spices. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts and some fruit. The fun thing is, if I wouldn’t know it’s a belgian strong ale, I would go for the fact it’s a very wellbalanced ESL or ML, I still think it’s a wellbalanced thing, even though I would wait for a bit more both aroma and flavourwise from a Belgian Strong Ale.

Can in Belgium. Strong and sweetly alcoholic. Perhaps marginally more refined than your average tramp juice this is still rubbish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden colour, with a small head that fades very quickly. Fruity and spicy aroma, with corainder dominating. Some orange too, and maybe appricots.
Taste is a bit metalic, marzipan. Alcoholic, well balanced, but with some artificial flavour. Body is lighter than it used to be. Another one I remember being a better beer .some years ago. Disappointing.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 Very fruity, very alcoholic a little perfumy and way too sweet, pretty full bodied and syrupy mouthfill, not easy to drink, not a very good beer.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from uto. Golden with white head. Nose of alcohol and little else. Burning alcohol in the taste with hops and fruit on the palate. Sweetish to bitter. I wouldn’t try to neck it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Color ranges from clear golden to orange depending on the background. Has a very small and disappointing white head that fades almost instantly. Aroma is malty with some fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic and finishes with an almost burning alcoholic (and a bit metallic) sense. An ok medium body.

Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Clear golden, small head. Fruity estery artificial raspberry aroma. Sweet and fruity, sweaty and unrefined. Finishes with some syrup and light grassy hops. Bold and clumsy. Not good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Sugary, hoppy scent. Quite prickly and strong alcohol taste. Sweet, fruity and spicy but way too strong due to the 10%. Not so enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pretty average ale but it did a nice job of hiding the 10% ABV, no overpowering alcohol flavor in the palate or finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden ale with a thick creamy white head. An aroma of apples, alcohol, and light malt. In mouth, a light bubble gum malt, with light coriander and sweet malt, with some warming alcohol, and light pepperyness. Medium bodied, but cloying. Can from Bieropholie import. The rest of the can went for a glaze for a chicken dish.
