Bottle from LCBO singles basket. Pours slightly hazy golden with a huge head. Spicy aroma with honey and plenty of alcohol. Taste is sweet, slightly spicy, quite alcoholic, with a little vanilla. High carbonation.

Blairgus (2419) - California, USA - APR 22, 2014
22 April 2014, bottle. Light, slightly dirty gold, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is faintly tart, apples. Hmmm. Thin/med body and fizzy. Alcohol is rather harsh, rock candy and golden syrup, green fruit. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JonnyConga (52) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Massive gushing white head. Had to slurp off the top to stop it going everywhere. Nice clean aroma - alcohol and malt. Tastes strong. A little strong for me. Not as nice as duvel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fhoublon (92) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bouteille de 330 ml achetée à la LCBO Rideau à Ottawa. Dégustée le 10 novembre 2008 (Tulip). Bière blonde voilée. Mousse beaucoup, col épais, grossier et durable. Assez effervescente, bulles fines à moyennes. Odeur d’alcool (cognac) et de levure. Goût de céréales et de levure, de pomme Granny Smith, de pomme candy. Alcool ressort mais pas trop malgré le % élevé. Sucre bien présent mais pas trop marqué. Manque peut-être un peu de saveur à part l’alcool. Pourrait être mieux équilibrée, aurait gagné à être un peu moins forte et plus savoureuse.

una strong beer davvero ottima. Frizzantina e con un retrogusto molto dolce. Il belgio non delude.

Lowenbrau (1736) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2014
330ml bottle somewhere in time. From old notes.
In short: a boozy belgian ale.
A malty, slightly spicy ale, some citrusy. Alcohol more than noticed, not so well integrated.

Cloudy yellow with a very beautiful creamy white head. Smells of bready malts and belgian yeast, taste is more or less the same with some sweetness and a bit of hops in the finish. Average belgian blonde.

Decent strong Belgian blond beer. Bit too heavy on the CO2 for my taste. Average.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2014
OLD NOTES JAN 15, 2004 A thick blond beer, without much alcohol at all on the nose. Had pear and a few more citrus style flavours. The texture of the stuff is very nice. Goes down oh so well for something of its nature. The taste wasn’t quite as complex as others i’ve tried. A few citrus flavours were there, orange, lemon, and a few spices. Seemed almost ciderish in a few ways. Definately worth a try, and quite more than I expected from such a strong beer.
