JanEric (1068) - Meppel, - NOV 4, 2012
From a package of the Lidl. Amber, minimal head., flat beer. Aroma is sweet, some fizzling in the mouth, with minimal citrus, some artificial aroma even. Sweetish taste, alcoholic, medium body, reasonable finish. Not so good at all.

Skrzypidlak (28) - Białystok, POLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Herbal sweet aroma. Big froty head. Too much of alcohol in taste, I guess it’s not well balanced with the hoppy and fruit notes.

ElDesmadre (1940) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Herbal hops, spicy and fruity notes, red apples, pears, some banana, subtle clove and some biscuits. Full bodied and complex. Unfortunately flawed (acetaldehyde) and unbalanced - lots of booze in this one. Not really good.

soolash (155) - POLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Butelka 0,33 l. Aromat: słodowy, owocowy (morela, banan), chmielowa (cytrus i żywica), słodkawy, kwiatowy i trochę przyprawowy. Piana przy nalewaniu ładnie się buduje, jest obfita, ale dość szybko redukuje się do cienkiej warstwy, która utrzymuje się do końca. Kolor jasnego, lekko zmętnionego bursztynu. Smak: słodowo-owocowy z wyraźną goryczką i wyrazistym alkoholem. Ciało i nasycenie średnie.

Senka (810) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2015
33cl bottle.BBE 1/09/16 Load of tropical fruits in aroma on a smooth hoppy background. Pours clear light orange with a beautiful fat frothy head No sense of alcohol in the nose. Strong fizzy first mouthful. Light sweet, but stronglly bitter and you do feel the ABV. Full bodied, thick, rough texture and a pleasant lively carbonation. Oily bitter groggy finish, but that is the whole point of BSA. Loved it!

Aroma: fruity, heavy alcohol, some herbal hoppy notes, spicy notes in the background Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, fruity, heavy alcohol This beer will be good after 1-2 years of aging. Now it taste like mix of vodka and belgian strong ale.

Gylo (193) - Lublin, POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Jak to zwykle u Belgów, świetnei wyważony delikatny smak, wyłaniająca się pod koniec goryczka oraz dobrze przykryta spora ilość alkoholu.

rami_pl (242) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 26, 2015
butelka, warka "lidlowa" ;) do 13/01/17. Wysoka, prawie biala piana, opadajaca nieco na modle mydlanej, za to ladnie zostajaca na szkle. Dosc metne, o dosc ciemno bursztynowym kolorze. Aromaty owocowe (brzoskwinie, morele, moze nawet madarynki, gdzies w tle banan), miodowe, kruche ciasteczka, lekkie jakies łąkowe nuty. Alkohol niekiedy wyczuwalny (lekko zmywacz do paznokci, ale na szczescie ginie to gdzies w tle). W smaku slodko, z wysoka jak na styl goryczka, alkohol w smaku tylko jako lekkie rozgrzanie gardla, nuty z aromatow nadal wyczuwalne. Tresciwosc srednia, wysycenie nieco powyzej sredniego. Calkiem fajne piwo, choc mozna znalezc fajniejsze z mocniej chmielonych belgow, chocby Duvel tripel hop wersja 2014

Butelka 0,33. Kolor bursztynowy delikatnie mętne, piana biała obfita od średnio pęcherzykowej do drobnej, opadła po ok. 2min do zera zdobiąc szkło, aromat słodki, chlebowy, brzoskwinia, morela, chmielony m.in cascade ale cytrusy słabo wyczuwalne, trochę nut korzenno-drożdżowych, smak, słodowo-chlebowy, goryczka słaba alkohol wyczuwalny ale mimo wszystko jak na taką moc 10,5vol dobrze ukryty, nasycone średnie, odbija się cytrusami, trochę zatyka, z butelką normalnych rozmiarów trochę bym się męczył.

MikaLukanainen (90) - POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Pours deep orange colour with a huge and extremely long lasting white head. Aroma of peach, orange, some sweet banana - classic belgian bouquet, simply fantastic. As peach notes play a major role in the taste and the beer seems to be sweet and fizzy (the carbonation is really strong) the alcohol is not hidden well. In fact, the finish is alcoholic and the bitterness seems to be the result of high voltage rather than the influence of hops. Good beer, but the alcoholic character made the final note a bit lower than I wanted it to be.

Reconqvista (100) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2015
Deep orange color with a steady yellowish head. Peach and orange aromas. Sweet flavor with fruity traces. Body is thick with a very delicate carbonation. Alcohol is not deeply detected to be so high. Very refined ending.
