Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of fruits and ethanol, a little fresh. Taste is of fruits and spicy alcohol, more alcohol than anything in fact. Some sugar. Body is medium, carbonation medium and alcohol dries the mouth. Overall a not so good or complex belgian strong, no major flaws but nothing really good either.

VDuquerroux (490) - Airvault, FRANCE - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear sparkling golden orange beer with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass. Large white head, good retention. Herbal aroma, "limonade", dry fruits, biscuit. Medium sugary sweet, light herbal bitter. Medium body, silky texture, average carbonation, light herbal finish. Overall, pleasant herbal aroma, nice texture, average taste.

digopossobon (317) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
Uma cerveja bastante saborosa e boa representante do estilo. Belíssimo colarinho!!! Consistente e bem formado! Um pouco bege. Belíssimo líquido!!! Dourado para o alaranjado. Límpido. Aroma intenso. Emana só de abrir a garrafa. Doce, muito doce. Maltado. Um pouco de mel, talvez. Amargor discreto no princípio. Cerveja suave. Álcool presente, sem ser excessivo. Tem alguma acidez no intervalo. No retrogosto o amargor se desenvolve mais.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 The follow-up to the original Royal of 2003, just a little bit stronger (+0.5% ABV, so I’m wondering if they can still be called aliases?). Snow white, sticky, thick head, deep orangey golden blonde colour, amber, clear. Aroma of caramel and walnuts, green apple, grapefruit, banana, orange peel, flowery hops and the unmistakable cooked smell of pasteurization. Smooth, rather neutral onset, turning more caramelly, honeyish and nutty in the middle, some fruitiness, lightly sourish touch, light hop bitterishness in the finish, some spiciness and some warming alcohol, as well as lingering malt sweetishness.

pours slightly hazy light but bright golden with a very nice creamy white head, good retention and lacing. golden candi, honey, boozy white grape juice, soft earthy, grassy and floral notes, lightly tart small yellow fruits - some rotten ones, peppery booze. average carbonation, light to medium body - oily and a bit sticky, assertive grassy-woodsy-spicy finish. meh.

Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy golden with a frothy white head and some lacing. Aroma is of raisins, phenolic notes, cereals, alcohol and candi. Taste is slightly sweet with raisins, phenolic presence, grains, alcohol and light herbal presence. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Light lingering sweetness. Weak Belgian Strong Ale. Very raw, not complex and not refined at all. Not horrible though.

SlovakSniper (3436) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
33 cl. À consommer avant le 09.08.16. Liquide blond et sa mousse blanche trop généreuse. Bonne effervescence. Nez propet sans tambour ni trompette. Je dirais plutôt malts, levure, houblons et sucre comme ingrédients. Au goût, un malt blond à la belge, un houblon noble, une levure neutre et un alcool relativement bien dissimulé. En bouche, un liquide moyen-mince qui pétille trop. Une finale qui ne montre rien de remarquable. Cette bière qui m’apparaît industrielle n’est pas très bonne ni très mauvaise. Disons que son travail est honnête.

Bottle at home. Crystal clear, golden colour with a sparse head. Yeasty, grassy aroma. Very complex flavour, sweet, malty, apples, pears and alcohol. Good style.

rodenbach99 (3305) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Bouteille. Bière blonde parfaitement translucide. Une belle mousse blanche trône. Un nez marqué par la levure, le malt pils et un soupçon de houblon. Une bouche simple, alcool, malt pils. Finale sucrée et légèrement amère.
