Grzesiek79 (3485) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Bardzo smaczne treściwe mocne piwo belgijskie. Moc alkocholu lekko wyczuwalna zarówno w smaku jak i zapachu. Jednak zdecydowanie dominują nuty karmelowe. Piwo treściwe i sycące

kwik-lime (1495) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
Big, big, frothy head. Somewhat sour with a hint of pear, quite refreshing though with the ABV very well-hidden.

jeffs515 (123) - Ogden, Utah, USA - JUN 29, 2012
The aroma is a strong sour Belgian ale with yeast and a little citrus. Pours a hazy yellow with lots of carbonation and thick frithy white foam that lasts and leaves some lacing. Taste is very bitter sour hints of apple citrus sweet leaves a bit of fruitiness on the palate. Very strong alcohol in the end. Overall not bad for a Belgian ale.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced slowly, down to a heavy film with a large collar which possessed some excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), toffee, a mild fruitiness and a slight alcohol scent. The taste was lightly sweet with a malty citrus note in the beginning, and then became very yeasty and a bit sour with a hint of green apple and a slight peppery alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a nice mild fruity funky yeast taste left behind. Mouthfeel was light in body and creamy in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a very good Belgian Ale with a nice fruity citrus presence, that along with a good mix of yeast and alcohol helped make sure that no one flavor was so overpowering that it overshadowed any other. This brew was very tasty and rather refreshing for a beer that has such a high ABV…

Cybercat (4031) - Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Have a thirsty towel handy, because this one pops and fizzes like champagne! It pours a pretty, slightly hazy solar yellow with a thick, frothy white head. Strong, yeasty aroma has hints of pear and butterscotch. Flavor has a nice malty core with subtle fruity and butterscotch notes, a hint of hops, and a firm but not fierce alcohol bite. Texture has good body and plenty of sassy fizz. Devilish!

scarletfire65 (1109) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Pours a mostly clear yellow, very foamy and active head. The aroma is musty yeast and bosc pear. The taste is fruity with notes of apples, pears, and stone fruit. Sweet underneath. Has some spiciness too - stale white pepper and coriander. The finish is slightly bitter, nicely balanced and very clean for 8%.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2012
I like this much better than most of the others rating it. Cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head. Funky, yeasty nose with some ester character. Apples and white grape palate. Clean, but an almost tannic finish.

GT2 (9347) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 6, 2012
330mL at St Arnold's in DC. Hazed golden pour with massive white foam- rocky with volcanic retention. Thinks sheets of lacing. Nose is estery, spicy, Abbey Tripel candi sugar, spicy hops, booze, heavy esters. Taste at first is creamy and spicy moving to heavy metallic and blood iron content. Sharp metals. Booziness overwhelms. Palate is dry, powdery, boozy, sharp metallic. Too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
