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?

colui72 (324) - HONG KONG - AUG 18, 2015
Medium hazy golden-amber, creamy head with big legs. Aroma is malts, nearly bread, sweet. Taste is pure malty and yeasty as expected in a Belgian Ale, maybe too sweet. Overall a very nice ale.

sonotono (131) - torino, ITALY - AUG 16, 2015
Colore ambrato chiaro. Odore fruttato, maltato, caramellato, amaro. Corposa, frizzantezza medio alta, sapore dolce di malto, caramellato, poi un bell’amaro a smorzare i toni dolci. Finale con amaro importante. Bell’equilibrio tra sapori dolci e amari, alcool tutto sommato ben amalgamato con gli altri sapori. Buona.

oermens (37) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2015
alcohol, golden slightly amber’ish clear beer, light beige somewhat creamy head. Taste and aroma is mostly reminisant but just slightly better than cheap extra strong lager/pilsner/malt. The bottle looks better than it tastes, disappointing if you are not into such beers.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2015 Dit bier proeft exact hetzelfde als hij ruikt. Aroma van amandel, honing, beetje mout. En als je dieper proeft en het bier rond laat gaan in de mond proef je zeer zeker banaan. Bij de eerste slok was ik niet overtuigd maar moet zeggen dat het bier iets beter wordt naarmate je hem leegdrinkt. Doet me beetje denken aan de Trappist Gregorius.
