This is my thousandth rating, and I was expecting a bit more. Orange amber in color with silky beige head. Aroma of citrus, spice and malt. Taste is subdued, but pleasant and no alcohol burn. However, I was hoping for something a little darker and heavier. Not bad, but short of expectations.

Bernstein-orange mit üppiger Schaumbildung. Wildblütenhonigaroma. Hefig-fruchtig-beeriger Geschmack, malzdominant mit semi-trockenem, alkoholisch wärmenden Abgang. Erstaunlich süffig für so eine Alkbombe!

Huge thanks to ogivlado for sharing this with me and luttonm at the Magic Beer Room!
Poured a shiny full amber-orange body with a medium sized beige head that was relatively lasting. Alcohol, strong alcohol and strong dust in the aroma, with some peachy maltiness and orange rind. Smells like near-disaster and yet interesting for me (I don’t like a strong alcohol presence in a beer). Sweet taste, caramel, light fruitiness, almost balanced though a bit on the sweet side, very very light notes of lemon, alcohol only underneath it all and not as prominent as it first seemed. Full bodied, not bad really, would have it again.

Bouteille 330 ml. Robe orange, reflets auburn. Collet mousseux, qui disparaît rapidement. Arôme: malt, caramel, alcool. Goût: malt et alcool. Finale fruitée. Très sucrée, mais relativement équilibrée malgré tout. Bonne rondeux en bouche. L’alcool fait vite sentir sa présence. Bon digestif.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Copper pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, ripened dark fruit, yeast notes and booze. Taste is sugary and sweet with lots of caramel, fermented fruit, booze, sweet malt and hints of brown sugar. Body is medium-full and slightly chewy with a strong dense carbonation and lots of stickiness. The warmth is slightly moderate but noticeable. Ends with more sweet malt notes, ripened fruits, yeast notes, caramel, and light booze. Nice Belgian Strong!

A tulip glass as The Yard House in Hallendale, FL. An amber beer that wears a layer of attractive beige foam. Berries and complex malts in the aroma with yeast. Those malts and the alcohol bring lots of flavor at the beginning. This is very sweet and that with the alcohol make this decadent. Complex fruit flavors from the yeast plus banana. I had this mid June in south Florida but it would be better in colder climes. Still, it is tasty and intetesting.
