zaf (308) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2012
aroma: caramel, bread, alcohol, apparenza: amber, hazy, frothy, gusto: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, palato: medium body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish, è stata una delle birre,insieme alla triple karmeliet (sua sorella),che mi ha fatto avvicinare al mondo della birra belga di qualità..che dire,è eccellente..al naso predominano sentori dolci, come frutta secca, cereali, floreale in ogni caso. Carbonazione adeguata che non nasconde il gusto. Si lascia bere a grandi sorsate poichè molto corposa,densa e dal finale dolce e prolungato.. non ho riscontrato una componente luppolata eccessiva,poichè il malto domina in assoluto..

I may be way off on this, looking over everyone else’s ratings, but I could have sworn there was a smokey flavor to my glass.

andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2008
750ml bottle. big belgian head on this deep-amber poured ale. aromas are of sweet candied, juicy pears, as well as a heavy yeasty aroma that is oh so mirrored in the flavor. while it is a fruity ale, even at 8%, it’s not very well masking the alcohol. it’s reminiscent of a chardonnay that is turning. it’s apples (and pears), and then a distinctive alcohol-finish. it’s a good beer, fairly easy to drink, but it’s not of ueber-high quality. solid, just not spectacular.

light brown, wood color. Aroma sweet, yeasty, peach, honey. Taste:sweet in the begining but not exagerated. Pleasant characteristic belgian yeast honey-peach flavours. Could have a bit stronger bitterness. Overall very good beer.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2013
Bready/yeasty, sweet and a rich malt in the aroma. Characteristic belgian yeast. A nice looking beer, mahogany color with long lasting white head. Caramel, malt, belgian yeast and a mild hoppiness, with abrupt alcohol aftertaste. Pretty clean tasting. Above average carbonation. Medium bodied.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2008
pours dark dark orange with thin tan head, smells of malt, yeast and spice. The flavor is beautifully malty with a spicy fruity finish. This is one of the tastiest ales i’ve had.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
A fine, simple but very satisfying beer. The type that can be had over and over again on different occasions whenever thirsty for beer.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2006
Light brown colour, huge beige head (maybe because of the strange glass?). Caramel malty aroma, flavour of wood, alcohol, fruity hops.
