Reddish-brown hue--almost opaque. Nice heavy aroma with some sweetness coming through. Taste is strong but not as harsh as I’d expect from an 11% Belgian. Nice

Hazy Gold with a nice top, a bit creamy. Alcohol dominates a bit too much; I understand that it is because of the high alcohol % but why have such a high level if it only dominates other aromas? Finish is rather short if not for the alcohol. Bitterness is OK

Blond yellow golden pour with huge white head. Phew! Really dominant smell of uhm.....lager? Malts and hops hiding out in the backyard but they’re there. Banana and yeasty malty taste. Little sweet but not too much. Bitter appears later on. Body is a bit too thin with a high bubble factor. Still quite enjoy this one.

Bottle... pours a rich golden color white a fluffy white head. Strong aroma that makes you actually want to drink it. A unique flavor with a hint of fruitiness, but just the right amount of hops that reminds you that you are drinking a beer. Good experience.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour yeasty slightly grassy noise. Lots of carbonation somewhat hazy and light in color. Dense lacing. Sour taste with a bitter finish. Heavy on alcohol. Delightful mouth feel with a medium body.

Brewery Glassware on Tap (Sharp Edge, Pgh)
Clingy white head, on top of a straw/gold clear pour. Aroma of light hop, some yeast, hidden alcohol. Flavor of banana, tropical fruits, boozy, with a warm carbonated bite on the palate. Warmth remains long after, nice tripel.

This beer stood in my storage for a long time. By the time I drank it, it was 7 months over date. I tried it expectiong nothing, and this idea appeared to be confirmed when I opened it. A bread-yeast aroma came out, which I have never smelled before while opening a beer. So I thought this was the end of the exercise. Also the head disappeared fast. But when I tasted it, it was an utter surprise to me. The taste went from fruity to clearly acid-bitter. Wow, what a surprise. The body of this beer was very un-blond, and more orange hazy.

Alcohol was masked terribly. Unfortunately the flavor was masked fairly well. This is a bland over priced import. The bottle was beautiful, but the taste left much to be desired.
