Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

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.

Hanoi (669) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2015
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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2003 An aproachable belgian beer. malty aroma, Quite malty, salty and sweet then bitter. Hints of toffee, pepper, anise, caramel, pears, apples (overipe). Actually quite pleasant, and even complex. I think the spicyness dominates it a bit too much however, and the flavours don't quite combine.

This beer has probably the most beautiful glass, but too bad it doesnt taste the same way. I expected a lot, but i came up with disappointed feeling, though it isnt a bad beer.

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.

Copper/ruby red. Little if any head on this one. Definite yeasty and spicy notes in the aroma and in the taste. Very sweet, maybe a little too much so. Can definitely feel the alcohol, although it seemed to be relatively well concealed.

Famous for its glass. Malty, hoppy, something bitter.

intresting... like the name. A fairly average belgian ale (which means it’s in the top quarter of all beers).
