pintbypint (2832) - Edmonton, Alberta, - NOV 6, 2009
750ml brown bottle, corked. Cloudy orange/amber coloured with a solid, tall creamy head. Some soapy lacing. Aroma has some orange-like sweetness up front, some hemp notes, brett. Malt has some nutty qualities, earthy, woody, grapefruit and floral hop flavours. Medium bitter finish, lasting grapefruit hops aftertaste. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Great mix of bitterness and brett, which to me equals a dangerously drinkable, and no sign of the 8% alcohol.

pinkzambia (1615) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Tap @ Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar - St. Louis: Sticky lacing all over the glass with a mild hop aroma and hoppy Belgian yeast in the flavors. Not bad. This brewer is always creative.

mateuszk (348) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, brown in colour, white head. In aroma caramel, some fruits, bretts. In taste hoppy bitter, malty plus fruity notes. Bretts also present in taste. The beer in overall was quite similar to Orval (note that I drunk this after some time, hops in aroma wasn’t that present). Very nice beer.

martin00sr (1461) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Clear dark amber, small frothy offwhite head. Aroma has red berries and vanilla. Very dry and bretty. Not your typical BSA. Sour berries and subdued malt. Fluffy mouthfeel. Atypical BSA.

Bamsen78 (3999) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and caramel malt, with notes of hops and yeats. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish notes of caramel malt and fruity and touches of yeast. Bitter and slightly acetic aftertaste. Hinyts of barrel. Soft carbonation. Not bad but clearly a non-Belgian Belgian Strong Ale.
