jamaty (1329) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar anaranajado. Dos dedos de espuma. Olor dulzoncillo. Sabor diferente, muy marcado sabor a naranja, y bizcocho... Final amargo. Cansa un poco, pero no esta mal.

Old rating. Amber colored. Caramel, spice, light sour, some maltiness. Not bad at all.

cattaneopapa (233) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
33cl bottle from LCBO in Greektown, Toronto, ON. 7% alc.vol. Pours a clear reddish, deep amber colour with a small lasting film-like head. Traditional Belgian Ale aroma with a whiff of caramel and banana. Taste matches the aroma with a crisp beginning and a clean hoppy finish. I was expecting worse based on the ratebeer numbers. This strong ale is arguably as good as any other big name golden ale. (Duvel, Delirium, etc.)

Hammy78 (876) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle in gift pack from the LCBO. Pours true copper colour, fluffy white head that recedes to some clumps and a sheet of foam, loads of lacing. Nose is sweet caramel malt, a touch of spice. Tastes sweet, a little bitterness that lingers for a bit, caramel is very present. Probably my favourite of the three in the gift pack.

Strangebrewer (996) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
bottle. Poured clear deep amber with a thin creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with yeast. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Flavour of caramel malt, fruity, sour cherry with a peppery note. Sticky finish.

Fashawn (439) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Buona bevuta, le birre del bucaniere sono sempre divine per me, e hanno rappresentato il primo amore. Bello l’aspetto rosso rubino con una schiuma beige non troppo omogenea e poco fine, sgranata. Aromi di coriandolo e cannella, che si mescolano a pesche, albicocche e ciliege. In bocca tanta frutta speziata, ancora, con molta dolcezza ed un finale lievemente più secco e amaro. Ottima rossa.

lesifflebiere (1491) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Bière couleur acajou clair, avec un cercle de mousse blanche, le liquide étant limpide ; le nez est dans les fruits rouges, avec un peu de prunes et de raisins mûrs pour compléter. La bouche est aussi dans les tons fruités, avec un alcool plus mesuré que prévu, mais des saveurs brutes, sans subtilité. On peut admirer sa puissance, sa richesse, ou au contraire la trouver bruyante, dénuée de délicatesse. C’est une belge forte comme la Belgique en est pleine.

Bendrixian (1338) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Cloudy burnt copper red colour with a frothy head. banana- bread/yeasty aroma with some caramel malts and esters. Shows a hint of caramelized something. Sticky palate with those esters and caramel coming through with a sort of berry pie finish that I find pleasant. Decent stuff and sort of interesting.

nathanvc (67) - Brugge, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Overall malty aroma with caramel, fruits and honey. It appears clear amber orange/red with a tan rocky head. The taste is sweetness with almost no bitter tones. The alcohol comes in after a while too. It has medium to full mouthfeel, which is positive, but it leans towards stickiness.

dnicolaescu (1319) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 6, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL. Look: clear amber brandy-like, off white biggish creamy head with good retention. Aroma: sweet and sour fruit, berries, spicy yeast, malt/grains, sweet/honey, some alcohol as it warms up. Taste: smooth creamy mouth feel, berries, pleasant spicy phenolics. The finish is a bit too sirupy and hollow. Nice beer otherwise.
