jlzm (25) - SPAIN - DEC 16, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2018 Gran corona de espuma y a tope de carbonatación. Muy refrescante y no se nota nada el alcohol.

Giovannino (22) - - DEC 14, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2018 Provata in bottiglia da 0,33. Color giallo paglierino, schiuma color panna molto persistente. Al naso malto e spezie. Al palato ancora tanto malto, miele e frutta a buccia gialla (albicocca). Finale leggermente amaro. Corpo pieno e carbonazione media. Nasconde benissimo la non bassa gradazione alcolica. Sicuramente una delle migliori belgian ale al mondo.

ciocanelu (4221) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 14, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2018 Clear light golden color with frothy white head. Aroma is mostly grassy and floral with some spicy yeast notes. Taste follows with spicy yeast, slightly lemony with grassy hop bitterness. Medium to light body with medium to high carbonation. Although I'm not a fan of strong Belgian ales, this one deserves it's reputation.

przemq (73) - POLAND - DEC 14, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2018 Rewelacyjna piana! Piwo bursztynowe, klarowne. W aromacie estry, brzoskwinie, rum, rodzynki. Czuc alkohol. W smako owocowe, brzoskwinie, czerwone jablka, drożdże, lekko wytrawnie. Alkohol nie ułożony. Goryczka delikatna. Zrownowazona. Calkiem trescime, doac mocno nagazowane. Fajne, ale bez fajerwerkow. Pijalne

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2018 Highly accessible in the UK which makes this a highly drinkable strong belgian ale, can't really fault it

kluczbork (838) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 13, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2018 Bottle. Aroma- pleasant yellow fruits: peach, apricot, nice herbal hoppiness and subtle white pepper. No alcohol. Pale, a bit hazy, with a high, good-looking head and a classy lacing. Taste- surprisingly easy-drinking. Again yellow fruits plays the main role, in the background very pleasant herbal hoppy notes and a medium-low bitterness, which counters well the fruitiness. Medium-low-bodied, with a medium carbonation. Completely no alcohol, but it was cooled down before tasting. Very easy-drinking and still distinct and elegant beer.

Great Belgian beer that packs a punch. Make sure you pour it slowly into a large mouthed mug as it gets foamy fast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.2
snowcrash000 (510) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2018 Pours a clear, pale straw coloration with visible coloration and a large, foamy/creamy head. Smells of light biscuity malt and fruity esters of green apple, with just a hint of citrus and mellow funk coming through as well. Taste follows the nose, with the fruity and mildly tart apple/pear and just slightly peppery yeast esters in the foreground, complemented by citrus notes, light biscuity malt and just the merest hint of mellow funk. Finishes with a very light bitterness and a very mild funky tartness lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. First off, it's incredibly how easy-drinking this is at 8.5% ABV, with a great balance of mildly tart and spicy fruit esters, citrus notes and very mild funk.

Cybuch (1082) - Muszyna, POLAND - DEC 10, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2018 W aromacie brzoskwinie, ciastka, słodowy, lekko przyprawowy. Dosyć słodki, przyjemny, średnio intensywny. Barwa złota, klarowne, piana bardzo obfita. W smaku słodkie, słodowe, owocowe, pełne a jednocześnie zdradliwie orzeźwiające i pijalne. Goryczka niska do średniej, przyprawowa. Alkohol lekko wyczuwalny, nie przeszkadza, wysycenie wysokie. Fajny belgijski klasyk.
