annunz123 (918) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Candy, fruit, and a little funk in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and smooth, with caramel, toffee, and dark fruit. Hop bitterness and drying alcohol in the finish. Really good.

FatPhil (10096) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 4, 2015
330ml bottle (Wines of Gallilee, Tallinn)
Pleasant standard perfumey belgian ale aroma. Light grains but quite a waft of alcohol. Waft? I meant kick. Lightish palate, grainwise, and I like the bitter perfumey hops. Finish a bit pencil shavingy. Too hot, definitely. Otherwise had some merit.

thirstyrabbit (1330) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow body, tall head. Aroma has sharp lemony hops. Sweet and dry-hoppy taste with more lemony hops and some green apple peel. Sharp carbonation and a warming alcoholic finish. Looks and feels like Duvel to me. But I don’t really care for Duvel - after a while it always starts to feel like a Sprite with vodka to me.

rdb84 (229) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Murky apple juice color, nice frothy head. Aroma is a refreshing and well balanced blend of pine, lemon/lime, yeast, some soap accents. Big whiff reveals hint of blue cheese. Taste is very distinct (positive). It holds the middle between Duvel (sour) and La Chouffe (sweet). Sour is lemon, sour from blue cheese, hint of cactus. Sweet is honey, hint of dough, some saison yeast. It is quite a heavy drink though.

Ulysse (270) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2015
Metallic aroma. Abundant foam with rather large bubbles. 10 ABV is a dominant feature. Alcohol with a shade of bitterness. Lively carbonation.

agent_persik (504) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2015
Hazy yellow color, huge white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, spices, grass, yeast. Sweet taste with lightly bitter finish. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Decent Belgian ale.

Sebthoack (4) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2015 does not count
Very pleasant, good taste, lovely smell. Definetly one of my most favorite beers, next to westvleteren and maredsous.

Styl, którego wielkim fanem nie jestem. To fakt. Ale zawsze jest nadzieja, że znajdzie się piwo, które zmieni moje postrzeganie na daną grupę. I choć Malheur nie był zły, zdania nie zmieniłem. Piwo jest bardzo mocne. W przypadku ciemnych, łatwiej chyba to ukryć. Tu, jak dla mnie, alkohol jest zbyt mocno wyczuwalny. I choć jest to szlachetna forma, wciąż mi przeszkadza. Pomimo tego, że przyjemnie rozgrzewał... Aromat typowo belgijski, wyczuwalne nuty kwiatowe, owocowe. Bardzo ciekawy bukiet. Wracając do smaku - dużo się dzieje... Wysycenie średnie, całkiem spora goryczka, ale też słodkość. Owoce, przyprawy - jest w czym wybierać, ale ten alkohol strasznie mnie męczył. Piwo dobre, ale styl nie mój ;)

PapaVillum (591) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 24. januar 2015. Honningfarvet, ufiltreret og diset og noget boblende Belgian Strong Ale med kæmpe hvid, noget ucharmerende, skumkrone på 6-7 cm, som sikkert skyldes en kraftig eftergæring på flasken. Toppen svinder til kant og overflade efter en snes minutter. Frisk eksotisk frugt af papaya og mango i næsen, koriander og lidt fjern citrus. Uovertruffen kompleks smag af både sødme og krydderier samt humlebitterhed. Det går virkelig op i en højere enhed her! Understøttet af god solid alkoholvarme. Sådan skal en bittersød blonde Ale smage. Kulsyreindholdet er ganske højt, hvorfor dette øl sagtens kan bruge tid til at folde sig ordentligt ud. Fyldig krop, hvor de 10 % kan være. Konsistensen er olieret, og eftersmagen lang og bitterhumlet med mindre sødme. Spitzenklasse! Flere!
