Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Rotbraun im Glas mit schöner Schaumkrone. Typisch belgisch stark, Alkohol kommt spät, aber dann...

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- bernsteinfarben mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach roten Beeren, Karamell, eine leichte Schärfe und Alkohol - die Carbonisierung ist mir entschieden zu hoch - der Antrunk hält zuerst einmal eine würzige Koriandernote parat - durch die hohe Rezenz prickelt das Ganze aber auch etwas unangenehm auf der Zunge - in der Mitte drängt sich dann der Alkohol zu aufdringlich in den Vordergrund - der Abgang fügt dann noch eine leicht seifige Bitterkeit hinzu Fazit: Die hohe Carbonisierung und der zu durchdringende Alkoholgehalt werten das Bier doch ziemlich ab

lokis333 (395) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - SEP 10, 2016
Hazy deep red color with tan foam. Aromas sweet of malts, bubblegum with notes of dried fruits. (Hard to smell in busy kitchen) Palate, medium body with smooth texture with noticable carbonation, leaving boozy sweet finish. Taste is overwhelming boozy! folowed by bubblegum and candy taste and well boozy! Overall, bit too much booze for me could do with some taste and complexity.

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Rating #1767 - 2015.06.26 - Bottle at Belgian Beer Cafe YEG. Clear amber pour with a giant head with decent retention. Aroma is meyer lemon/tangerine, coriander, mild spicy note, and of course, booze. Taste is definitely full bodied, to the point of off-balance with alcohol being the primary note in the finish.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - Cloudy amber colour, medium off-white head with fair retention. Typical belgian fruity esters, nothing mre. Taste is also typical belgian, with some bubble gum, stone fruits and sourdough. Medium body and carbonation, sweet and a bit boozy finish. Not bad just boring.
