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.

No... Tak się powinno piwo prezentować - mętne, super kolor, mega piana i fajny lacing. W smaku lekkie i przyjmne. Nie czuć tą moc. Ogólnie polecam.

ThirstyBird (1704) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2014
Pours a hazy, dull, yellow/gold with a big loose off white head. The aroma is great, fruit, candi sugar coriander. The taste is coriander, yeast, fruit with a dry fruity finish. The body is light+ with good active carbonation. Pretty solid though a bit on sweet side.

RafeAU (197) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2014
Lovely BGS. Big esters, initial sweet taste, finish is moderately bitter and warm alcohol. not such a dry finish as some other examples. seems a little closer to a tripel? 750 ml bottle at lentil is anything.

Mörkt gyllengul vätska med tjockt skum. Doft av citrus och säd. Smakar lite pepprig och äppelskal. Torr och eldig munkänsla. Medellång eftersmak.

Une fois versée, le collet de mousse est magnifique!! La levure, l’orange et une certaine acidité sont bien perceptibles. Bon produit, voilà!

Single small bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a snifter. A murky light orange color. White head. Highly metallic aromas and flavor. Some fruity yeast. Fizzy mouthfeel. Rather disappointing.
