UPDATED: JUL 11, 2016 Solidny belgian strong ale - słodowy, zbożowy, dość słodki, przyjemnie rozgrzewający ze słodowo, fenolowym aromatem. Całkiem pijalny, idealnie wpisuje się w belgijską klasykę. Niezłe piwo

Piwo klarowne w kolorze herbaciano-miedzianym, piana znika szybko po nalaniu. W aromacie rodzynki, jablka, belgijskie drozdze, ciasteczkowo i przyprawowo. W smaku karmel, dojrzale owoce i niestety troche alkoholu. Slodkie i drozdzowe, czuc karmel i troche banany. Dosc gladkie z lekka goryczka na finiszu. Warto sprobowac zeby zaznajomic sie ze stylem.

Caramel aroma. Medium head, clear ruby. Sweet, yeasty in the finish, alcohol notes, very light bitter. Medium body.

One of my first loves, partly beacuse of the interesting looking glass. Sweet aromas with some yeast and brown sugar. Taste is a nicely balanced sweet with some spice mixed in to add some depth. You want to take another sip as soon as you put the glass down. Solid beer, reasonable price.

Zilb (149) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JUL 3, 2016
Bue 1 an et 11 mois avant DLC. Bière rousse fonçée, carbonation moyenne, mousse bblanche tenue moyenne. Arôme de malt grillé, toasté, de houblon résineux/feuillus et d’alcool. Final, sur l’alcool, le malt toasté, avec un très bon équilibre entre douceur et alcool. L’alcool domine sans être trop prenant. Belle rondeur.

Red, orange cooured strong ale. Easy drinkable despite the 8,4 alcohol. fruity, sirop, caramel, dried fruits, nice bitters, lomg lasting taste. Not a killer, just a fine beer.

Very nice appearance, great taste, very sweet touch, typically belgian and yet much better than the typical belgian beer.
