jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a copper color with moderate off-white head. Aroma is malty sweetness and Belgian fruity esters. Taste is more towards the malt, alcohol well hidden. Solid beer.

ferrinche (30) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2015
Dejando de lado lo curioso de su vaso, se trata de una muy buena Strong Ale, además su disponibilidad es bastante alta. La espuma desaparece relativamente pronto, pero su sabor es intenso, al estilo de una típica Ale belga. Si te gustan este tipo de cervezas es claramente recomendable.

v.zoltan (95) - 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.

Bottle. Nose is butter scotch, some berry, banana, sweet malts. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, some fruity esters, banana, cloves, bread, dough. Mouthfeel is good. An exceptionally ordinary Belgian beer which gets more than it’s fair share of praise.

Belgik (72) - Sterrebeek, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2002
Off-white medium firm foam tops a limpid medium-dark amber brew with quite lively medium-fine bubbles. Discreet herb aroma. Bitter-sweet tasting foam, the beer itself sweet herby-malty taste with rather bitter ending. Medium-bodied, this beer is a bit on the sweet side, with a bitter ending, hence in my view lacking balance and individual character.
