JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2012
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Vibrant golden pour, modest haze not diminishing the brightness. Well carbonated, a bit prickly, and a soft nose of dry hops and some fruit. Not quite as overly sweet as the previous recipe, but still trending too much in that direction for me. Solid but not great.

Marstonlad (557) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle from Budapest. Pours hazy straw-yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma has hayish maltiness, yeast and notes of herbs. Taste is crisp and a bit tart. Malts and hops are well balanced; notes of hay, citrus and yeast. A little sharp mouthfeel and a medium body. The finish has grapefruit and herbal hop flavour. A decent Belgian beer.

Smells like hops and line, taste is sticky, honey sweet with hop taste but no bitterness. Some spice too, clove. Pleasant stuff.

monk191 (1270) - California, USA - OCT 24, 2012
A below average Belgian style. Pours a slightly golden color, with a lot, maybe too much head. Took 10 minutes before we could drink it. Not much smell, like a Sweeter Coors. Taste is very much the same, although it's thicker and creamier then it looks. Nothing sticks out. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tommann (2985) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours light gold with a medium head. Aroma is light lemon and candy sugars. Taste is sweet to start with a straw finish. Prickly carbonation.

Tried this on tap at Lucky Pie in Denver, CO. Great Belgian strong ale, Belgian yeast aroma and flavor, nice mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2012
There is some trace of the higher alcohol content here, but it was not distracting or overpowering at all. I think the fact that the flavor was so mellow was a bit of a disappointment...no "WOW" factor. but this was still an enjoyable beer.

Patrickctenchi (4710) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle: (17/11/11) Hazy yellow-gold with a large, foamy, white head....long lasting with a lot of lace. Scent is light pear, yeast. Taste is slightly herbal, with pear, banana.... Some tart-on the verge of sour tones, yet still sweet overall....depends on the way you sip it. Not a great one, but pretty good overall.
