Aroma is honey, sweetcorn, wafer. Body is light, foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is barbequed corn on the cob, sweet and boozy, honey, drying alcoholic finish. A fairly standard Belgian strong ale. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer has some nice but simple looks. There is a nice layer of rough white foam on top of the beer. The foam collapses quickly, but a tiny bit of roam remains. The smell is nice. There is a life fruity banana aroma, combined with a bittersweet almondy alcohol smell. It has a smell reminding me of Belgian Tripel beers. There is also a nice tiny sweet candy aroma. There is a good balance between bitter and sweet notes. There is also a yeasty soreness in the smell. The taste is slightly less. The balance is a little of towards the side of bitterness. There is also a little meat like metal flavor. The aftertaste is also a little disappointing, but not bad. The palate is nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to Dirty D. It pours clear golden - amber with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet, white bread, cheap grain, buttered white bread and cereal. The taste is crisp, sweet, cheap white head, banana, candy, cereal, grainy, alcohol boost and some tang with a sweet, bready finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. A bit sweet and bready. Good to get boosted I spose, but I wouldn’t drink this on the reg.

En helt klar spritet smag, hvilket også helt klart smager i eftersmagen. En dårlig øl.

Buena cerveza. Cuerpo medio. Buen gas. Deja un sabor muy bueno y peculiar, aunque diría que quizás se nota demasiado el grado alcohólico.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s a pretty good beer, It lacks of yeast deposits, though. The beer is golden with nice long lasting white foam. Smells very yeasty. Pretty average on the palate. A little sweetness/bitterness in the taste and a bit metalic/malty.

Birra muy fuerte, ese es su principal característica. Una cerveza poco equilibrada en paladar.
