I used to have a huge bonk-on for this in my pre-rating days. Spice, pepper, coriander and a little bit of funk in the aroma. A dependable brew but my tastes have moved on.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Floral, fruity--apples, lemons--and earthy aromas. Somewhat hazy yellow-gold with a lasting, white head. A little sweet, spicy, hoppy, and fruity. Light, pretty refreshing, and finishes with floral hops and fruity esters on the palate.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at The Pub, Leicester, just prior to LCFC beating Watford 1-0 in the play-offs. Has all the Belgian brilliance - soft lemon, chalk, dough, speckled sugar. So sweet, succulent and swiggable. Belies it’s strength. Firm hit at the finish, which kisses with alc.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bought a 330ml bottle at the supermarket. Aroma of peaches and coriander. Has a golden/blond color and creamy white head and is highly carbonated. Taste is very complex with sweet, bitter and fruity. Taste of melons, citrus fruits and coriander. The afterdrunk is fresh and bitter. An excellent blond beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bronzegolden colour. Great head and retention. Hops, spices and fruit in the nose. As with the Mc Chouffe, a very creamy feel in the mouth. Some sweetness of the yeast, hoppy citrus and more spices. Bitterness is nicely balanced. Bitter dry finish, but very subtle and lasting. Great Belgian strong ale.

Beautiful bright color, nice hop aroma. Deliciously balanced flavor, slightly hoppy, but not too much. One of my very favorite beers.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 0,75L. Hazy copper colour with creamy off-white, fully lasting head. Aroma of fruits, grass and herbs. Full bodied beer with creamy mouthfeel. Taste is moderate bitter with heavy bitter finish and coriander presence. 8% ABV is kinda normal for Belgian beers, so it’s not annything offensive...
