3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Rusty orange with an initial fizzle that runs away quickly. The aroma is fairly level, with just a hint of orange blossom. The beer drinks with a nice viscous mouthfeel, with an easy-going mix of Belgiany flavors, orange rind and mellow spice. (#3691, 10/4/2009)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Monk’s Café, Wallingatan
Golden color, small head. The aroma is simple, a bit fruity. It has some sweetish caramel flavor, with an evident honey side. Correct bitterness, but also the alcohol shows up. An ok beer, but it can be boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske: Meget parfumeret duft på en orange øl med et meget lille skumhoved. God mundfylde med et godt bid. Meget domineret af alkohol og krydderier. Ikke så balanceret men bestemt drikbar.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear amber, no head. Aroma of marzipan and glue. Sweet and grainy with lots of marzipan. Way too sweet. Very non-Belgian feel to it with it’s overpowering residual sweetness, yet alcohol clearly shines through. Ther are some pleasant flavours of orange and marzipan, but overall it’s more of a syrupy alcoholic golden strong ale than anything Belgian style.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2009 Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear orabge amber colour with nearly no head. Clean sugary of candied oranges, apricots, rubber and peppery alcohol. Full-bodied with clean cloyingly sweet notes of candied oranges, marzipan and honey. Long sweet finish of candied oranges, mild grassy hops and peppery alcohol. No thanks.

Pours clear orange amber with a small, off-white film head. Aroma has oranges, vinious, light yeast, some red apples. Malty as well. Fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, malty, some prunes, oranges, vinious. The alcohol is apparent, but the sweetness is fine and balancing. Light coriander in the end.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden orange with a minimal white head. Malty, with some sweet fruits. Alcohol is not very well hidden. Palate is a little thin. Some added spices and hops. Decent beer I suppose, but far from my list of favorite Belgian Strong Ales.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a large creamy off white head. the aroma is a sweet orange citrus with a nice dose caramel malt; spices and yeast round out the nose. The flavor has quite a bit going on but does not always play well together. Caramel malt sweetness with orange citrus, spices, other fruits, and yeast. The alcohol is well hidden. This is more viscous than expected, but smooth going down. OK, but will not be something I seek out.
