3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013/06/26 - Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick, frothy white head that leaves minor lacing. Aroma is citrus, hops and belgian yeast. Taste is similar to nose with a bitter, metallic start and a bubbly, sweet citrus aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of bubbly carbonation. Not as balanced as I typically like.

Hoppy start, very long bitter yet fresh fizzy finish. Slightly cloudy golden colour. Beer with a mind of its own.

I can’t add too much to the description listed for this beer, it’s spot on. Especially the part about how the first sip is one taste, and the next is different, and the third even better. Complex beer....

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy yellow colour with airy but unsteady head and medium body. Nose of fresh, ripe hops. Taste of medium bitter, yet aromatic hops, grass, citrus fruits, herbs and light yeast. Flowery finish. Easy to drink, enjoyed it.

Bottle bought around Wavreille, Province Namur and shared with McTapps. Classical belgian with huge carbo, vanilla and sweet hops in the aroma and quite fluffy taste. Is a bit too sweet with a strange aftertaste. Quality beer with nothing special in.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Intenso color biondo con saponosa schiuma bianca. Aroma fruttato e floreale con sentori di lievito e caramello; gusto mediamente dolce, molto "belga" con note caramellate e fruttate e un finale leggermente luppolato. Corpo medio, effervescenza presente ma morbida, setosa al palato. Rimane il dubbio che la bottiglia non fosse "al meglio", da provare "in forma"!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this one from my SAQ import group, then realized the LCBO got some in. Best before 28/10/2014. Pours a hazy light golden colour with a frothy white head, good retention and a little foamy lace. Big citrus aromas with some hoppy grass and a little Belgian Ale yeast. No burning at all, really, really smooth. Not sure I am really enjoying the taste though. Some metallic notes with the hops, light fruits and just a tad of sourness in the finish. Get better in the aftertaste, as things balances themselves (apples coming out). A decent Belgian Strong ale, but nothing too special as the taste seems not as well-balanced as most of this style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Un po’ deludente. bevuta subito dopo la loro tripel. Profumi ovattati di standard strong ale belga. Lieviti, un po’ di luppolato erbaceo e un lieve sottofondo alcolico. Colore giallo scarico, con schiuma da bolle ampie e vaporose, non persistente.Gusto per nulla intenso anche se piacevole. é sin troppo delicato e troppo luppolato per lo stile. pochissimo corpo, e il finale è breve , ma non improvviso.
