1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Belgian strong beers are usually perfect but this strong ale is very simple. Do not expect too much from this one. Put the can to the freezer before the use. Malt, sugar & alcohol. B@H

Probably brewed by Bavaria Lieshout, because can mentiones H. West in Maarssen. Golden color. Soft grainy perfumed aroma. Grainy sweet, slightly perfumed flavor with apple and plum. Not the worst of its kind.

500 ml. can @ home. BBF 12/2014. Procured from Carrefour. 0.79 € with cheap design & the words “Really Strong” displayed clearly. This is clearly the Belgian equivalent of Malt Liquor. Clear apple juice appearance with bubbles rising & whipped cream white head that more or less lasts. Nose is sweet cheap apples, white sugar, cheap yeast, old cornflakes, dusty & weak. Taste is cheap & boozy plastic apples, lots of plastic, like lots & lots of it, boozy, cardboard, paper, old & dusty, yeast, light grains,… Very oily & corn body, sticky and cloying. Ehh… it is not as terrible as I had feared, could be a cheap way too get boozed.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
In general I fear canned beer but since I got some strong canned beer on our last trip to the Netherlands and Belgium I fear them even more. That’s one of our last canned ones - thank God. Now the good stuff can be put into the fridge ;-) clear amber colour with steady head and smooth body. Nose of malty hops. Taste of mild sweet hops, sweet malt, sweet barley, hay and cloves. Not easy and not nice to drink, the finish is just too sweet, dull and overwhelming. Awful one.

One of the worst of my life so far. Sugar meets alcohol all the way. Bit malty, lots of syrup but alcohol and sugar dominate. Tough one which has to be REALLY cold to be drunken.
