4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Poured with an average-sized head that is white and bubbly. Body is a dark orange, and extremely clear with just the slightest evidence of haze.
S: Lots of yeast and bread coming through here. The aroma also has a fruitiness to it that is quite pleasant.
T: Sweet, fruity, and yeast, with a very slight twinge of bitterness in there as well. The finish is dry, with a slight alcohol warmth as well.
M: Medium-bodied, creamy, with average carbonation.
D: A very good beer, but I don’t know if I would have recognized it as a Belgian IPA; mind you, I’ve never had this style before, and I would expect their IPAs to be less in-your-face then many in North America.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep orange-hued slightly hazy golden body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is white sugar, banana, pale malts and hints of honey, floral notes, bread dough and straw. Taste is mild caramel, metallic grassy notes, alcohol, banana, white sugary ester notes and hints of straw and floral tones. Medium crisp body, high carbonation. Not too bad, not to fantastic either. A pretty "middle-of-the-road-Duvel-version" would be a fit description.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber copper and blurred and micro suspended sediments. A light beige foam and consistent and creamy, high training and long term toasting the taster with a corpagem in its proprietary tulip.
The aroma arise apricots, prunes, brioche, grassy Belgian hops, cloves, coriander, pears, a slight acidity of the pineapple, sweet malt, brown sugar, licorice and perhaps honey. All these sensations of fine, growing and balanced manner.
The taste is slightly sweet shows the caramel, toffee and brown sugar with a slight predominance of the harpsichord and the spiced yeast. Making a good composition follow the dried fruit, tstado bread and herbal bitterness that balances the spicy sweetness with the beginning of the sip. An exquisite beer and the favorite beer among cigar smokers.
The more elongated aftertaste, so to speak, become dry and bitter.
Your body is full and medium carbonation and thick texture, velvety. The alcohol is fully inserted in the joint despite its 10.5% abv.
A classic and personality Beer Belgian Strong Ale style!

Barwa miedziana, piwo lekko zmętnione. Piana obfita, ale raczej nietrwała. Widać lacing. Bardzo bogaty aromat: z butelki raczej estrowy, przede wszystkim śliwka, a także piernik oraz aromaty belgijskich drożdży. Ze szklanki przede wszystkim ciemne, słodkie słody, troszkę alkoholu, oprócz owoce - banan, jabłko. Piwo mocno nagazowane. Raczej pełne. Wyraźnie czuć rozgrzewający i moim zdaniem przyjemny alkohol. Goryczka słaba, ale występuje. W smaku przede wszystkim słodkie, owocowe. Przy finiszu raczej wytrawne.
