chickenflea (332) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Appearance: Lightly hazed, dark copper body with a full fingers worth of meringue-like, whitish foam. Fair amount of spiderweb lacing on the way down. Smell: Foundation of lightly sweet-scented maltiness on which sit fruit notes of pears and apples. Also, a good snap of spices, smelling of everything from clove to pepper. Taste: Sweet, sugary pale maltiness slides in before the spicy taste of cracked cloves, white pepper, cardamon, and even a bit of cinnamon. Fruity, faintly tart tastes of apples and pears along with some soft floral tones. Light bitterness. Drying, warming finish with a lingering spiciness and (still lightly) tart fruitiness in the aftertaste, Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Lightly sticky mouthfeel. Drinkability: A good Belgian brew - you get some upfront sweet maltiness, a complex spice character, and a nice display of fruitiness. A little bit of everything.

tricksta_p (1023) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, some spiciness, hops. Flavour is yeasty and fruity, light to medium sweetness, with a light bitterness in the finish. As Belgian Strong Ales go, this one is pretty good!

Hazy amber pour, huge off white head, alot of floaters. Aroma of stale hops, tropical fruit, and some metals. High carb, lively mouth feel. Strong fruity finish. Lots of pineapple, and mango, with some yeasty notes.

Abijen (1422) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a golden orange unclear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, sweet yeast and tastes the same. Very sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

shoulderbroken (1988) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at Hiranoya. Good graininess, quite sweet, honey maybe. Feels like a triple. Probably is one. Light tropical notes, quite thick. Good stuff. (quite pissed by this stage)

commonmac (294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome. Light golden color. Aroma is mild. Lacing quickly disappears. Taste is also mild but easily consumed on a summer day. A little bit of sweetness and some of the Belgian yeast undertones. Unspectacular finish. OK, not great.

Bosbouw (1175) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Iets troebele oranje kleur met veel schuim. Ruikt mout, beetje stoffig. Smaakt ergens naar. Weet niet waarnaar.
