Erzengel (2560) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled 12/13/13 13:48, 12fl.oz.
The beer has apple-cinamon-flavour in the nose. It starts hoppy-aromatic, slightly sweet with the typical aroma of a Belgian Ale. The mainpart is a bit spicy, lots of yellow fruits, pepper and floral hops. The aftertaste is long and intensive, well-balanced smooth, fresh and nice slightly bitter. The spicy fruity smooth Belgian Ale aroma remains long!
A very nice brew! --> 13/12/13/13

Taste: lemon, bitter, coriander, watery, very noticeable alcohol. Overall: drinkable. Reminds Duvel, but itís a little bit more watery and has more lemon.

jdb288 (513) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2014
2013 bottle. Pours clear yellow with a bit of white head. Aroma is fresh bread, clove, currant. Taste is definitely spicy and almost savory/vegetal but offers enough sweetness to balance out quite well. Very refreshing and one of the smoother Belgian Strongs Iíve had in a while.

tom10101 (2746) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). Hazy yellow with a small white persistent white head and little lacing. Aroma is peppery witih floral/grass notes, lemon, yeast and cereals. Taste is yeasty and peppery with more citrus/lemon than in the aroma, floral/grass notes again and cereals. Alcohol is impressively well hidden. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry finish. Dangerously drinkable for a 9% abv beer. I wasnít a fan at first, but at the end of the bottle I was enjoying it.

Draft at Of Love & Regret. This beer poured a nice hazy yellow color with a medium sized white head. Nice lacing! Aroma was nice, straw, hay, and some nice grain/cereal notes. Flavor was a touch fruity, citrus, earthy hops, nice crisp, with a bit of a dry fruity finish to it.

I wouldnít have rated this beer as highly the first time I purchased it, but I find myself going back to buy it over and over again. I think this alone is telling of the beers perfection, as I brew Belgian ales myself quite often so Iím very critical of them. Others have described the flavor as somewhat peppery, which I try to avoid as Iím inherently put off by pepper flavor in beer... but, in this case itís magnificently blended with a sweet, rich floral overtone and smooth, light body despite the 9% abv punch it hides. There is a delicate noble hop bitterness which accentuates the full body and buttery mouth-feel, which brings this ale to the top of the pack with itís superb drinkability.
