mile (3314) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - wheaty and sweetish aroma, light caramel, fruitiness and some honey, faint hoppyness, yeast. Body is medium, malty - wheaty and sweetish flavor, light caramel, fruitiness and light spiciness (light coriander, faint pepper), faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - wheaty and sweetish, light caramel and some fruitiness, light spiciness and hoppyness, some yeast. Fruity Belgian ale - too sweet for me.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (basement/cement), with a light note of pepper, hint of ammonia. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Pretty clunky, just like the Riva version. Meh.

BeerBunker (800) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2012
On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver. Pours golden orange with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is of yeast, wheat, citrus, some dark fruit, and barn floor. Taste has the Belgian yeast that is expected, as well as wheat, slight citrus, and some dark fruit, Has a very dry malt taste, along with some barn floor qualities. Moderate carbonation make this easy to drink. A decent beer that suffers from a lack of carbonation.

emartell (269) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAR 15, 2012
Cerveza estilo Belgian Strong Ale. Aroma intenso a granos, destacando principalmente a cebada, Espuma abundante desde el momento de la tirada, la cual desaparece lentamente. Su color es dorado, sin embargo es una cerveza bastante turbia. Al primer trago destaca su alta carbonatación, sin embargo, conforme el liquido avanza hacia la garganta, la frescura de la cerveza, así como su alto alcohol, y su fuerte sabor a lata, la hace ser una excelente cerveza strong Ale.

The first time I had this beer, the bartender from a Belgian beer bar brought a bottle over to a crazy house party in San Francisco I was at. He looked like the devil and the beer was fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pinto1993 (45) - Revere, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2012
750ml, corked and caged bottled poured into Tripel Karmeliet goblet. Appearance is golden yellow with 2 inch, white head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave behind much in the way of lacing. Smells of dried fruit, banana, and lemon with a hint of clove. Taste is fruity Belgian yeast with a hint of lemon and spice. Medium carbonation with a crisp mouth feel. Overall, this Belgian lacks complexity and depth of flavor. It’s almost a bit watered down and is certainly nothing memorable. This beer does not live up to its name.
