Hazy golden tan color. Compact short lasting head. Punch of citrus to the nose. Floral and sour berries aroma, hints of rubber cement. Weizen feel on the palate. Wild flower honey flavor joined with malt and nutty wheat characteristics. Dry sourness on the finish.

Pours dark gold with a very nice white, compact head. But is it real gold what’s below? Unfortunatly no. I can’t find anything particular in the aroma, just a very little hint of citrus and some yeasts. Taste is better, but just because I love this kind of sweet beer. Sure not the best example of belgian strong ale, but enjoyable.

Aspecto: De color dorado más bien pálido, turbia y un poco apagada. Con burbuja muy fina pero abundante, la corona de espuma formada en copa es generosa y esponjosa, de color blanco y bastante duradera. Aroma: Rica en aromas, afrutada (frutos cítricos y tropicales), destaca en ella la presencia de la malta, y especialmente la levadura y el alcohol, haciéndose muy penetrantes ya que se trata de una cerveza que contiene restos de levadura para la segunda fermentación y presenta una graduación elevada. También se aprecia un ligero toque dulzón como a caramelo. Sabor: De sabor amplio, penetrante, se nota claramente al comienzo el alcohol, lo que junto con la acción de la carbonatación, provoca una sensación astringente en boca. De cuerpo medio y bien balanceada, el gusto evoluciona hacia un amargor seco en el retrogusto de corto final.

erickok (5032) - 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 (477) - 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.

Derek881 (1231) - 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.
