Kristall-König (2678) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2011
Optisch trüb gelb mit üppigem feinen Schaum obenauf. Typischer fruchtig-hefiger tripel-Geruch. La Guillotine startet fruchtig, legt dann etwas Herbe nach und feuert das Geschmacksbild noch mit etwas Alkohol an. Säuerlicher Nachhall. Die 9% reißen einem zwar nicht gleich den Kopf ab, machen sich aber schon bemerkbar. Geschmacklich ziemlich gut gelungen, lecker. Das Etikett hätte man sorgfältiger zeichnen können.Test vom 14.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

I really liked this one. Perhaps more than say Delirium Tremens itself. this one is sweet, fruity, malty, and delicous.

davidm (2050) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Bottle 330ml, it was 9% ABV. Masterpiece, a great match for spicy food too. Aromas of bread, caramel, and hay. Taste is sweet, with strong bitter notes, and very long finish. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head, and lots of yeast particles.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Rusty-gold hazy pour with a moderate, fine white head. Nose is generic fruitiness without any hops or spice to it. Flavor is somewhat similar but has some tartness as well, along with a touch of bitter peel. Finish is dry but sticky, oddly enough. Drinkable but underwhelming for a Belgian strong.

Pedro_Tallieu (57) - Deinze, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2011
33 cl bottle. Golden yellow body with a big white head that stays pretty long. Almost no aroma in this beer. Just a little touch of alcohol an slightly floral aroma. Bitter taste. Not that great.

cloudy, medium golden with light head. Aroma is form my little bit fruity, sweet and a spicy. I feel sweetness and alcohol in the aftertaste.

Koelschtrinker (15763) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Eigentlich ist schon alles beschrioeben und ich kann es nur bestätigen: Sowohl den beschriebenen fruchtigen, hefigen Geschmack, als auch den kratzigen Nachall. Positiv fällt zudem aus, das der hohe Alkoholgehalt im Geschmack kaum zu bemerken ist, wodurch das Ganze noch als recht süffig eingestuft werden kann. Test vom 15.9.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,9,6,13,9 - 8,70

LeopoldT (90) - Lazarevac, SERBIA - JUN 11, 2011
Amber colour,cloudy with medium, not so strong head. Frutiness on the nose, caramel and bread. Heavy bodied with sweet and fruity caracter, and sensable alcohol. Sweet and little bit dry finish
