This is a beer that comes alive as it warms a bit. Iím not a fan of suspending the yeast in this one - pour carefully after letting it sit for a couple of days. From other experience, this beer ages very well, particularly in the larger 750 ml size. This bottle poured with a fair bit of chill haze, which cleared as the beer warmed to a gorgeous gold with hints of orange. The head was large, white, and creamy, with moderate to good longevity. Aroma started fairly closed, with hints of bready malt and a touch of flowery perfume. As it warmed, the maltiness came out, along with big flowery hops, hints of coriander, clove, and citrus. The alcohol also becomes apparent in the nose as it warms. Body is quite full, with fine, strong carbonation and a mouth-coating finish. When cold, the flavor is subdued, clean, starting moderately sweet and finishing somewhat bitter. After warming to appropriate drinking temp, the sweetness dominates, along with strong citrus and flowery notes. This is one of my standard almost always in the fridge beers, I love it ...

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2003 Excellent Belgian Strong Ale. Quite similar to Duvel, but a little lighter and cleaner. Pale yellow. Slightly sweet. Quite effervescent. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully. No noticable alcohol aroma, flavor, or even warming. How they hid this much alcohol in a beer this light and delicate is a mystery. An excellent beer!

This beer has a slightly hazy golden colour with a big white head. When cold, it has a lot of carbonation but as it warms up, it feels more flat. Itís got an aroma of yeast, apricot, apple and alcohol with some lemony notes. The flavour is a bit too sweet for me with bready notes and some bitterness trying to fight the sweetness in the finish. Since this is a beer iíve had many times and used to be one of my favourites, iím a bit disapointed tonight. I remembered this beer to be better though itís still very good.

I drank this without having any idea whatsoever of what I was getting into. So I see the 9% ABV, and Iím thinking, is this a barleywine? Itís quite light and clear, perhaps the palest color Iíve ever seen from that strength of beer. It tasted quite wheaty, almost reminding me of a hefeweizen. Kind of strange but very nice.

Cloudy and highly carbonated. Nice foamy mouthfeel. The alcohol and sweetnest jumps out at you and leaves a strange film on you tongue and throat. Reminds me too much of Champagne.

This would be a first-rate blonde ale if its aroma and flavor werenít dominated by alcohol. As it is, itís not bad, and I prefer it to most blonde ales that Iíve tried. The taste is on the sour side, but not excessively so, and I like its yeasty qualities. It feels good in my mouth. If only the alcohol were covered better...

Blond color, with a turbolent perlage; frothy big head. It’s a quite simple Triple, with a light canned sardines aroma, a rather sweet body, some spices (cloves...), low bitterness and some alcohol warmth. The final is mellow and spicy. Drinkable.

Appearance and flavours similar to a Belgian wheat beer. Cloudy, perfumy, fruity, sweet and spicy. Difficult to believe it’s so strong.

I typically dont dont like the lighter/white belgian beers, but this is the best I have ever had. Cloudy yellow color. Smelled of sweet spice, tasted of sweet celery, nice finish.

Itís rather hard to believe that this brew contains 9% ABV. Pale, pale wonderfully pale. Fruity must and spice nose. The moment you notice the sweetness a rush of mellow bitterness tugs your buds for attention. At the íEnd of the Worldí there lies a brewery that turns out some fantastic beers, not to mention a few happy French-Canadians. Quality, Eh!

Slightly less alcohol taste is apparent in this fine beer than in the Unibroue 10. Rather winey. Good. Floaties in the beer. I liked it.
