Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Amber color and cloudy. Has sweet banana taste. Not as much aroma as most Belgium beer plus a little lighter taste than others as well. Very enjoyable beer for a bit more warmer day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (486) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 21, 2014
chestnut, bright amber in colour, no CO2 visible and clear liquid with a light yeast hazyness with a toast coloured head. Noses of malt, toast, leather, touches of liquorice, acacia honey with light wine and read berry aromas. Lightly lively, honey sweetness, lightly smokey malty an velvety with a full but somewhat slender body and a long lasting lightly dry finish.

Backlog. Tried bottled and on tap a number of times. While i always appriciate a nice belgian beer, this is just slightly too sweet for my taste.

Fruity nose, minimal head. Sweet. Yeast aroma. Medium to full body. Flat carbonation. Oily texture. Not bad, but you can feel the alcohol. (Vrutak 0,33l bottle)

Cor âmbar com tons rubi e translúcida; espuma bege de alta formação e média persistência; bom lacing; Aroma de pão-doce e melaço; Sabor de início maltado bem doce que evolui para um final picante e pouco amargo; retrogosto também picante e que aquece um pouco a boca; corpo médio e carbonatação média. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Sátyro

Het is vooral het glas dat het bier eruit doet springen, het brouwsel zelf is niet zo ongewoon. Mooie amberkleur en body met een rijk aromapalet. Vrij zoet voor zulk een sterk bier.

Un poco espumosa al principio pero luego un sabor dulce agradable con un buen sabor final. La debería haber tomado más fria ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
