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…

Clara dourada,líquido levemente turvo,linda espuma,abundante,cremosa e de boa duração,boa carbonatação;no aroma frutas cítricas,malte,fermento e notas condimentadas;na boca um sabor inicial frutado,doce,seguido por uma breve acidez e terminando picante,calor do álcool percebido bem no final e no retrogosto mas sem prejudicar o conjunto,corpo médio,refrescante e com boa drinkability para o estilo. Quem esperava por uma cerveja "pesada" em razão do nome e do grau alcoólico se surpreendeu pela sua maciez e facilidade de beber:boa breja,merece a degustação.

Great malty aroma with a supporting malt flavor and just a hint of hops on the end. Definitely, I’ll have another, please!

Hazy golden colour, big head that sticks to glass, always a ring on the surface. Smell of ripe fruits, spices, bnanas, maybe coriander. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of fruits, bananas, apples, peaches, some spices, maybe coriander. Palate is more on the sweet side, though ther’e some astringency. Really good.

Bright blond beer with a good big white head, medium carbonation. Tastes Belgian malt, sweet fruit, little hoppy and bitter herbs (coriander). Nice beer, nothing wrong with that.
