Stopherbomber (111) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 18, 2007
this has a frothy head, a sharp taste, and the alcohol in it is in the aroma as soon as its opened.

Sigmund (6483) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2007
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Pale clear golden colour, large and lasting head. Lovely spicy and fruity aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Some sweetness and fruit in the flavour, the high ABV is treacherously well hidden. Well, you get some idea that the beer is stronger than average, but not 8.5% ... Hints of spices. Surprisingly moderate hops. Aftertaste is not impressive. Best served cold.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Coloração golden, levemente turva. Floral e frutada. Notas de gengibre. Ótimo creme, denso e persistente. Encorpada. Amargor muito bem dosado, de forma que ele é notado sem ser desagradável. Excelente retrogosto! O álcool é aparente, mas bem inserido no conjunto.

BelgianBeerGal (3716) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2007
33cL bottle. Golden beer that had a fruity quality from aroma, taste and finish. More fruit flavor than I was expecting.

oh6gdx (24904) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2007
Canned. Golden colour, big white creamy head. Aroma is fruits, glueish and some yeast. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some sugar and malts. A very pleasantly balanced beer. As it gets warmer also some spices and slight honeyish hints become present.

MissKicha (5) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2007 does not count
Bottled. Drank in Belgium. Golden with a very slight chill haze. Very thick white head. Slightly spicy with some mild fruit in the nose. Light effervecence. Some honey mixed with a little acidic bitterness. The back has some sugar and another hit of slight bitterness. A great Belgian strong ale - but doesn’t age well in the bottle. A definite session beer that is much more pleasing than a Duvel or similiar.
