Alcohol is way to prevalent. Sweet malt balanced only by the sweet, burn of booze. Bleh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted in Bierkant in Gent on draught. Never really liked it, last time I took 2 of them and felt it quite lot on the next day. The colour is nice. Nice foam. Alcohol straight is clearly high, but not too intrusive. The taste is nor the best for me. Too belgian and too sweet

Tap @ Waterhuis aan de Bierkant. Big malty aroma and taste, caramel, a little sourness and a firm alcohol punch.

Rated on 11-25-2009 at JK O’Donnell’s Irish Ale House (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer forms a small beige head with a short retention, transparent body, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. This beer’s Aroma is malt, yeast, fruity, and some sourness. The Taste is quite sweet, malty, sour, fruity, and citrus. This beer has a short dry finish. The Palate is somewhat bubbly and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer certainly takes a different stand for the Aroma and Taste given this beer’s style. It somewhat reminded me of a Cider than a Belgian Strong beer. It just did not give me any good WOW factor(s) to leave me wanting this beer again.

Small draft sample @ Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant in Gent. Dark brown with a tanned head. Sweet & syrupy nose, dark fruits & lots of brown sugar. Taste of brown sugar, soy sauce, iron, sweet herbs, caramel malts, touch bitter herbs & iron in the back. Thicker body. Neither exiting nor particularly good as far as my opinion goes. Just another Steenberge brew.

Clear amber golden colour, white head. Very light aroma. Some malts and caramel. Sweet flavour, caramel, light malts. Sweet finish, caramel. Too sweet, not very malty, not my cup of tea.
