v.zoltan (83) - HUNGARY - APR 3, 2015
Vöröses narancssárgás szín, vékony szürkésfehér habbal. Illata karamellás éleszt?s és f?szeres. Ízében méz karamell és szárított gyümölcs jelenik meg f?szerességgel. Testes, de egy picit túlságosan is édes.

pras (523) - Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Poured blond, with a nose of belgian yeast and sweet malt. Flavor was crisp and slightly sweet but in balance. Could tell that there was some alcohol going on, but it was not overpowering. Very enjoyable.

edsspoon (729) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle - deep chestnut with a thin light brown head. Aroma of bubblegum, clove, alcohol and yeast. Taste of cloves and oak followed by bubblegum, yeast and light bitterness with a sour hint. Medium oily body, prickly carbonation, lightly warming.

SinH4 (753) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Served from its glass (yay!) at Domkeller Aachen. Great amber-orange color with white-greyish head and visible bubbles. Spicy yeasts, caramel. Refreshing and crisp (the high carbonation fits), but at the same time nice Belgian strong impression with honey, caramel, spices and a very very slight booze feeling. Good mouthfeel. Not bad!

samzim (311) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
Fruity aroma with some spicy and malty notes. Clear amber colour. Sweet front with sustained boozy flavour; notes of caramel, dates, and honey. Medium in body and carbonation. Quite a pleasant beer.

Grain, bread, and yeast aroma. Cheese and bread taste. "Belgique". Good, but withouth that little extra.
