BOBANDDOUG (61) - Belleville, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Poured from 33cl bottle, thanks to a friend at AB/Inbev ( THANKS! ). Medium copper color, with fluffy, off white head, lingering a bit, into alot of lacing. Smell of malt/caramel. Tastes of raisins, malt, and spice, maybe a mix of cloves & ginger? This beer hides the ABV pretty well, there is a warm finish of alcohol, but finishes really clean, and dry. Damn good beer, not a session beer as others have mentioned, but, how many 9% ABV are? Just the ticket on a cold winter evening in St. Louis. Inbev, how about turning this brew loose stateside?

Kleurplaatje (46) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2014
Pours clear orang with a frothy and thick white head. Aroma is clearly malty with some honey in it. Some yeast, spices as well... Bit buttery smell... Not unpleasant. Taste is very sweet. Definetely sugars and spices. Clear taste of the honey, caramel, coriander... Some banana... Bit bitterish/dryish near the end, but still there is that lingering sugary sweetness. Nice warmish mouthfeel, but a bit of an alcoholic bite throughout the whole sip, which was quite a bit disturbing. Could have hidden the alcohol a bit better. Full bodied, oily and sticky texture and quite lively carbonated. Not a bad brew. Not the most complex as well. Decently tasty, but it could have been more refined and more balanced. A bit too boozy and alcoholic and maybe a bit too sweet/sugary for its kind as well.

milo91hd (136) - Lecce, ITALY - NOV 12, 2014
Bottiglia 75 cl, colore ambrato limpido con una schiuma fine e poco persistente, all’aroma la prima cosa che salta sono i lieviti per proseguire con una nota dolce simile al caramello, in bocca è abbastanza dolce. l’amaro si presenta pochissimo solamente nel finale, abbastanza astringente e secca, i 9 gradi si fanno sentire abbastanza, più beverina nella sua versione classica blonde

Bosskie (456) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2014
Crystal-clear beer with a beautiful reddish golden colour, nice gentle bubbling and a white head. Smell is very fruity with lots of peaches, oranges and caramel, alcohol sourness and rotten dark fruit. Dough. Taste is very sweet, not so much fruitiness - mainly caramel. There’s supposed to be a good balance between bitterness and sweetness (according to the label), but I can’t find it. Finish is dry and lightly astringent. Heavy caramel sweetness and alcohol. Touch of apples.
