BOBANDDOUG (61) - Belleville, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Poured from a 33cl bottle, thanks to a friend at AB/Inbev. ( THANKS!). Very hazy yellow, with small flecks of sediment. Thin, but sturdy head that died quick. Left a nice lace. Aroma. Big malty, fruity, clove. You can almost "smell" the ABV. Taste. Citrus, slight clove, bananna hit you right away. Almost a German Dunkel feel, until you swallow. Then the ABV warms your mouth, throat, and innards. This is an easy big ABV beer to drink. Flavor, and feel are wonderful. As with the Leffe 9 degree I just had, I sure wish Inbev would turn these loose on us stateside!

MarkoNm (1830) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden, topped with a fairly big, frothy off-white head. Aroma is mostly yeasty, some fruity and spicy notes can be picked up. Taste starts sweet, bread and yeasty body, some spices in the finish. Presence of alcohol can be easily noted.

McWorta (1073) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2015
Light hazy golden colour with a frothy off white head. Aromas of bread, hay, spice and fruits like orange develops. Alcohol aromatic and pretty complex. Light effervescent with a pretty slick texture, yet smooth and a full body. Mainly sweet with some fruityness developing. Lasting finish.

freelancer12 (2) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 26, 2015 does not count
Sweet and bit roasty flavour. Aroma is quite complex reminds me of salt. I’ve drank it from bottle so I can’t really say about appearance. I wouldn’t recommend it to young drinkers because it’s hard to drink.
