fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Dégustée en bouteille de 330 ml au Bistro des bières belges à St-Hubert. Bien équilibrée, a assez de corps. Un peu forte, assez sucrée, peu amère. Goût de céréales torréfiées, de café rôti, de chocolat noir amer. Très bonne, de beaucoup supérieure à la Troubadour Blond.

Oscbert (1019) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Strong candy honey like caramel aroma with light spice and banana Pours a murky brown with small brownish head Sweet caramel flavor with light roastiness and somewhat harsh spiciness Medium bodied medium co2, lingering sweet toasty spicy finish Eh.... It's ok. A bit too sweet and the roastiness and spice is a bit off ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hanoi (380) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle: Nose is quite like a Christmas beer, cloves, almond, spice a little oak and lots of Belgian yeast. Taste is roast leading to Belgian yeast, a little white chocolate, berry, almond and a soft dry finish. It’s a very nice beer but a bit short in the finish with the dry note not quite right for me.
