Had some at the Great American Beer Festival. Very rich Belgian ale. Pours a red-amber with a thick white head. Nose of sweet fruits and mild malts. Taste is sweet with strong caramel character. Body is full and the alcohol is warming. Solid.

Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus yeasty aroma. Medium body. Flavor was full with sweet yeasty tone and spices with a moderate sweet finish and small alcohol bite. Good brew.

Maria (10125) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2007
November 2005. I had decided to save this bottle until I got the Kwak glass, but I couldn’t wait... 33 cl bottle and the beer is clear and nice amber with a red hue and the head is huge and nice. The aroma has notes of fruit, spice and sweetness. The flavour is sweet, but it’s nicely balanced of a nice hoppy bitterness. It has notes of fruit (slightly perfumed), caramel and spice. It’s a surprisingly refreshing beer, that in spite of it’s 8 % seems light but yet full-bodied. It’s really nice.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2011 Malty aroma, prunes and a hint of roasted malt. Sweet malty taste with caramel, apple and prunes. Bit of an alcohol burn. Slightly bitter and fruity finish. A bit sticky. The beer tastes o.k., but doesn’t stand out in any way. Another bottle, tasted in 2010 confirms this rating.
