BSA or tripel? Anyhow. Pours hazy golden with a 3 finger head. Citrus, herbal, spicy. Non-boozy palate. Medium body. Noble hops indeed. Very good Belgium beer.

Dorata con schiuma ampia e poco legata. Aroma di lievito ed erbaceo. Al palato molto dolce, quasi secca, frizzantina. Niente male.

Botella 33 cl tomada en marzo 2015 en cheers Oviedo. (r457). Lote 09GM11:29 hasta 09..07..2015. Aromas y sabores maltosos ligeramente dulces, con toques algo citricos. Gran sensación alcohólica seca de sus 11 vol. No está mal.

erickok (4621) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Amber quite clear body. Spiced, brown sugar. Very much in the rum infused beer style like Desperados or the in France popular Adelscott. But at least this tastes like beer. And I actually enjoy it in some twisted way. (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks)

SkillsFactory (369) - ITALY - SEP 26, 2015
Dorata, schiuma bianca poco persistente giustificata dall'alta gradazione alcolica. Aroma di lievito belga, erbaceo e lievito belga, leggermente pepata. Al palato stesse caratteristiche con una bella nota finale di miele. Ben carbonata, corpo medio-pieno.

Camons (8740) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle, Sirmione, Lago di Garda. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, sugar, fruit, light metallic notes, light sourness, wet clothes, alcohol. Flavor is little better than aroma, malt, sugar, fruit, alcohol. Medium body, soft carbonation, warming alcoholic finish. 210815

Derek881 (1216) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Poured from a 330mL bottle into a short glass to drink. The beer had a clear, bubbly gold color with a large-sized foamy white head with very good retention, and modest cling and lacing. The aroma had a strong floral and citrus hops blend, with lighter notes of yeast, wheat, straw, and some fruit. It was a mostly bitter grainy and floral taste with some lighter citrus sweetness, and a somewhat sour effect as well. The beer had a strong presence of alcohol with a slight burning effect, and was a very dry but thick beer with a large mouth presence.

Wanderings878 (78) - ITALY - MAY 9, 2015
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 (2710) - 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 (3161) - 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.
