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

330 ml bottle. The sampled bottle might have been a bit rustled, so more yeast than normal was in the sample. Aroma thick with belgoyeast and banana. Tastes sweet, fizzy, banana. Balanced, hides the alcohol well.

Poured a clearish orange although there are definitely some murky yeast or carbonation bubbles kicking around and the head and lace retention are great. Citric and some sweet fruit and definite yeast and spicy nose as it is a particularly strong beer. Crisp, light bodied, passes easy, great balance between a crisp edge thanks to spice and carbonation and a smoothness from yeast as well as some sweet fruit flavors like mango or pineapple as well as crisp citric orange. Alcohol started to warm the finish and hit me as I drank but overall this is a really enjoyable ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

on tap @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Clear medium amber, white head cover, full curtain of lace. Aroma of sweet malt and citrus, appealing aroma and appearance. Taste is sweet malt that expands in the palate, adding light sweet citrus and a bit of alcohol warmth on the swallow before nudging toward bitterness in a long satisfying finish. Highly recommended.

Clear yellow with a big and lasting white fluffy head. Aroma has caramel, bubblegum and pineapple. Dry and malty flavour with some pineapple and plenty bready malt. Hint of pine or hop flavour in the finish.

Strong golden color and slightly opaque. A Cream advanced training, dense and persistent. Excellent lacing. The cream on top brings a peculiarity of microbubbles present at its base and greater near the top. The aroma is very slightly sweetened by vanilla, banana or perhaps, with citrus notes, for strawberries, green apples, cloves, and hops are present discreetly. Alcohol can be noted in the aroma, but nothing that is compromising. As a powerful Belgian Strong Ale does not show an amount of drink but of appreciation. Its flavor is fruity initially being soon caught by the power of alcohol that is neat by strong bitterness. Well spiced by coriander, nutmeg and perhaps peppers notes. The hops are applied subtly noticed. The bitterness comes to exceed a little and perhaps influence of excessive carbonation, but despite this detail is very well built and balanced. Medium body and slightly oily texture. At the end there is a very slight incursion of acidity, without harming anything in the feature of this beer inside your style.
