Colpito positivamente. Bottiglia, Una volta versata, bel colore carico, dorato, quasi ambrato. Gli 11 gradi, a mio parere, sono ben celati. All’assaggio, pane, lievi sentori di frutta, retrogusto lievemente metallico. Si lascia bere con grande facilità. Retrogusto in bocca dolce e piacevole. Nel complesso una birra sicuramente buona.

Yves (2524) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2015
Alone at home. Clear goldblond colored beer with large diminishing white head and medium carbonation. Malty fruited bit alcoholic aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet bitter spicy.

drjay44 (2934) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, white head, over a hazy, effervescent gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light colored fruits (pear, apple) light noble hops, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly sweet, with light noble hops, hints of fruit, light cereal, mild finishing bitterness, balance to the hop....mouth feel, light of medium body, heavy alcohol burn, high carbonation. This is a very alcohol dominated beer so much so that it is almost raw. For a Belgian Strong Ale it has minimal complexity in both aroma and flavor. The recipe needs a rework. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

33cl bottle part of 6 pack from LCBO, Greektown in Toronto, ON. 11% alc. / vol. Pours a hazy deep gold colour with one finger of lasting white head. Aroma of yeast and hops. Taste matches the aroma with a lively carbonation and dry hoppy finish.

slowrunner77 (6923) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Decent belgian blonde, with some light fruit and a zesty yeast...kinda lacking in depth for a BSA, though. Not bad, but not worth the price.

Strangebrewer (966) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
bottle. Poured clear gold with an initially large white head that settles. Light bready malt aroma, boozy. Medium bodied, tight carbonation, metallic finish. Flavour is grainy and sweet, peppery hops with yeast and alcohol notes.

Hammy78 (860) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Gift pack from the LCBO. Pours a golden yellow, slight touch of haze, lots of carbonation, massive fluffy white head, some lace. Nose is sugary malt, touch of spice, Belgian yeast. Tastes bitter initially, that gives way to candy sugar, sweet caramelized malt, spicy. Decent, not my favorite from the gift box.

Alengrin (3122) - BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2014
Also tasted as Bière du Boucanier Golden Ale; derivative of Piraat 10.5°, deep peach blonde with frothy, off-white foam and estery and malty character, a bit bready, caramelly, yeasty, with near astringent alcohol in the finish, sweetish with spicy notes and floral hops. Lacks refinement and seems to be mostly aimed at just being strong, like the other Boucaniers.

Una buona strong ale, non commerciale. Non pastorizzata e filtrata soprattutto. Di colore dorato, con buona schiuma e ben luppolata
