Very crisp clean flavor, tastes better than it smells but it is a little bland for such a big beer. Lively carbonation medium body, bright apple tart sweetness with very good balance on the back end. Pretty good and extremely clean for the style.

Disparate off-white head over clear copper beer. Toasted, ’hot’ malts, yeast - Van Steenberge to the bone. Sweet, yeasty, bit fruity (estery). Again sweet malts to the fore. Medium bodied at least. Looks more than a bit flat, but manages to taste fizzy! Van Steenberge op z’n smalst

2013.08.17 - Gents Bierfestival - mooie fles - helder geel/oranje bier - neus : zeer fruitig - smaak en mondgevoel : heel wat koolzuur, aanvankelijk ietwat zoet in de mond, hop en bijhorende gematigde bitterheid komt er later doorheen - dit biertje heeft wel iets

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 8/28/2012. Pours fairly clear golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pear, apple, grape, light banana, pepper, clove, honey, bread, cracker, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester notes with a fair amount of malt balance; and good strength. Taste or pear, apple, grape, light banana, pepper, clove, bread, cracker, honey, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, bread, cracker, pepper, clove, floral, grass, honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast flavors with a moderate malt balance; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a slightly slick, crisp, and fairly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong golden ale. All around nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester flavors with light-moderate malt balance; and smooth and crisp to sip on for 9%. A very enjoyable offering.
