drinkbeer (283) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JUN 23, 2004
so so many floaters in this brew. Too much, I’d say. Incredibly yeasty. Belgian in smell and taste.

Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2005
Pours a nice deep orange-light brown. Smells of clove and bread in the malt. Wow..a little overpowering with the alcohol. Tastes more like 11%. Warms the insides and tingles the ears. Definetly a sipping brew.

Xavalias (280) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
0.75L bottle forgotten in the cellar for a few years too many (3.5, according to the label), but still pretty fine and slightly carbonated. Pours unclear orange amber, no head because of the age. The aroma is strongly yeasty and fruity, with some notes of nuts, caramel, plums and dark fruits, spices, alcohol. The taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Very smooth palate, creamy, sticky.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a ruby-like body, with an average white head that diminishes slowly, leaving a good lace. Mostly malty and roasted aroma, medium to heavy sweet and light bitter taste. Excessive carbonation level, oily texture, light to medium body. For it’s price here, it’s a rather mediocre beer.

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2007
got it at a bar in brugge mostly because of curiosity - the glass is the coolest thing about this. the whole time i thought i was drinking an amber ale and not a belgian strong, it was good though, perhaps a little too sweet, but a nice change of pace from other belgian beers

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle. Hazy reddish-amber with a small head. Aroma is bready caramel malt. Flavor is basically sweet. Medium feel, average carbonation, small aftertaste. Decent but not spectacular.
