Appearance: really nice head to the beer, does not dissolve quickly, nice amber semi translucent color, very dense head with a good amount of lacing, two inch head with a nice foam top Aroma: malty and wheat key note Taste: strong malty taste at the beginning then it slowly dissipates, complex flavor and the flavor changes through the sip, can tell this is a higher alcohol beer but the alcohol flavor is very tasty, leaves a good aftertaste Palette: tingles tongue, slight bitterness Overall: a great beer and has a ton of flavor, can tell this beer is brewed with experience ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Generalnie rzecz biorac, piwo jedno z lepszych w swoim stylu. Aromat ciekawy, na poczatku dosc intensywny, slodkawy. Wysycenie ?rednie do wysokiego, w smaku pierwsze skrzypce gra cos a la guma balonowa, przy pierwszych lykach alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, z czasem wychodzi na wierzch (10% w koncu). Dosc wodniste i jednolite smakowo. Niestety nie moj styl, raczej wracac nie bede.

330ml bottle: Pours a clear amber with sediment. Small off white head. Smells of stone fruits and caramel. Sweet, alcohol warmth, hints of prune and a slight breadiness in taste. Big bodied with light carbonation. Overall a big beer that’s packed with flavour.

Nut brown color with foam layer. The nose is alcoholic with banana. The taste is mild, creamy and has an alcoholic banana finish. Quite strong, yet mild aftertaste.

Bière de couleur ambrée. Une très bonne bière belge, avec un fort taux d’alcool qui ne gêne pas la dégustation au contraire...

On tap at pastoral. Really nice looking, graham cracker color. Not a ton of head. Aroma is deep and difficult to pin down. Taste is excellent. Great Belgian quad all in all. The alcohol is totally hidden. Would definitely recommend.

750 ml bottle. Amber color, rich off-white head. Sweet aroma with raisins and creamy notes. Complex flavor with caramel, apple peel, stewed plums, some almond. Very full body, medium-high carbonation. A fine example of the style that would pair wonderfully with many different foods. 1500th rating!
