2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Only slight sugary, hops and cellary aroma. Very sweet, sugary and sticky. Lots of alcohol, unions and pineapple. Too sweet, sticky and alcoholic to be a good beer.

And we have a winner!!! I never thought I would rate another beer 0.5. This one truely deserves the honour! I was really amazed that the only tastes added to this brew are metal and alcohol. Damn I had a hard time drinking a 0.5 ltr can, luckily someone special helped me out! Well I have to admit, in the last sip I also discovered some malts. Overall, yuckie! Go to a scrapheap and lick some metal for exactly the same sensation!

Big blond beer with a thin, head with low resistance. It has belgian undertones and low carbonation rates. Big malty sweet flavour. Too sweet and one dimentional.

Gold colour. Not much of an aroma with only a few malts breaking though. I found this to have a real creamy and smooth flavour, one that was not very complex and really leading to nowhere. Not much of a Belgian strong.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (33cl Bottle) Do not know how the local bar got this and do not really care - important thins was this was a delicious Belgian ale. Very impressed. Couldn't detect the 10% and no burn - Absolutely great. Nice amber body and little head. Vanilla and malt aroma and flavous - carried a slight sweetness. Smooth vanilla finish. Very good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden colour, decent head, not really lasting. Malty aroma. the flavour is malty too, dominated by sweetness (caramel and vanilla). The aftertaste is quite hoppy and bitter and unfortunately very alcoholic. This could have been a great beer with a better balancement...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent and fairly crisp, but the alcohol is noticeable and not particularly concealed behind any sort of sweetness. Lacks much belgian yeast flavor.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy pale gold w/ big rocky white head (which didn't last). Sweet, malty nose. Light feel. Sweet at first, giving way to a dry, somewhat numbing, peppery finish & alcohol laden aftertaste.

A violent brew. I also poured this in the bathtub. Rerate: After the bathtub it became better.
