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.

33cl bottle. It’s my father in law’s favourite, so I can’t say anything negative about it, hahaha! No really, great beer, pretty strong, but still a smooth drink.

Colore biondo chiato leggermente torbido, schiuma abbondante un po’ grossolana. Odore fruttato e caramellato. Sapore dolce di malto, leggermente asprigno, fruttato, caramellato, corpo leggero, frizzantezza medio-alta.

Lekker bier dat je kunt blijven drinken. Ik weet niet zo goed hoe ik de smaak moet omschrijven, maar is gewoon goed.

Bière de caractère : une bonne dose maltee/sucrée qui réveille les papilles et offre un très joli corps rond. Un superbe houblonnage qui apporte son rien d’amertume pour la rendre assez riche aromatiquement et équilibrer avec la rondeur.

Bottle. Clear golden pour, nice tall fluffy white head, lots of lacing. Yeast aroma, citrus, some bubblegum. Taste is sweet, fair bit of light fruit, spice, coriander.

Smells a little strong. Pours a cloudy dark gold. Taste is not too sweet. Little aftertaste. No hoppy bitterness. Good amount of carbonation Overall I was very pleased. Will buy again. Looking forward to cellaring and trying again in a few years. MB

With an aroma of gentle spices and straw coloured body the beer Is surprisingly smooth and almost cream-like with a flavour that moves from savoury with a touch of sourness to a sweet finish. One of the more unique beers I’ve tried.

Strong Ale, dotada, turva, não pasteurizada. Creme de alta formação e é alta duração. Aroma complexo cítrico e Herbal, dulçor e laranja. Sabor harmonioso, que mascar o teor alcoólico com ótima combinação. Dulçores inicial de caramelo, notas de laranja e coentro. Lúpulo ligeiramente pronunciado no final, típico das cervejas belgas. Ótima combinação como toda, está entre as prediletas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jksipa (528) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy pale amber with a large fluffy white head that recedes slowly and leaves patchy lace. Nose is yeast , bubblegum, banana, toffee and spice. Light sweet candy and honey start with a moderate bitterness and a fruity tartness. Hints of pepper and coriander throughout with an underlying earthiness. Medium slick mouth with prickly carbonation. Quite complex.

Nose is a stereotypical Belgian affair: spicy, yeasty and notes of coriander. Taste is quite sweet, a pronounced note is apricot jam, along with wheat and ester flavours. Long finish with low bitterness, relatively high carbonation. Contrasts with another favoured Belgian Strong Ale - Duvel - but is more fruity and less dry in the finish.
