From tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Aroma is very estery with bubblegum, yeast, tons of coriander, sugar, sweet ripe fruits, and banana. Flavour is very sweet and only lightly bitter. Body is medium, a bit sticky in the mouth. Sweet and too heavy on the coriander, with bubblegum. Not the epiphany I expected considering it's Alesmith. evannell (1499) - Krakï¿½w, POLAND - DEC 30, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Trochę może za słodko jak dla mnie, ale w sumie to spiłem może ze 100 ml. Poprawię, to wrócę i napiszę więcej. Jak na razie naprawdę świetna Belgia i trochę fajnego chmielu.

Bardzo soczyste, kojarzy się z pestkowcami, śliwkami. Pite razem z Gulden Draak - wypada dużo lepiej. Mniej mdłe, bardziej owocowe.
On tap at Beer NV. Crystal clear golden color. Thin white head. Clean crisp apple and fruity spice flavors. Some banana too. Very good example of the style. BlackHaddock (7951) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2017
19th December 2017. Ordered as part of a Flight in Crush & Brew, Temecula. Really pleased to see this, as I have wanted to try it for some time. Light golden pour, wispy head. sweet taste with coriander flavours within. If I hadn't known what it was I would have labelled it as 'Tramp Juice' because of it's sweetness and obvious alcohol level. Glad I've tried it, glad I didn't have to drink a lot though. Cybercat (6331) - Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2017
Taps hazy golden with a good eggshell head. Aroma presents fruity, yeasty, malty and butterscotch tones. Flavor features tropical fruit, yeasty, malty, and shy butterscotch tones. Mouthfeel offers fair body and good fizz. Devilishly good.

Tap at One More Beer Festival. Pretty classic belgian strong ale. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, some coriander touch in flavor. Bill Becker (1998) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Sep 2006
Pours from foiled and capped 750ml a clear medium gold which turns to cloudy (further in to the bottle) with lots of bubbles and a medium sized head of foam that shrank very quickly leaving a fine layer with lacing.
The smell is very lemony and spicy with notes of yeast and a pretty strong nose of alcohol.
The taste, up front, is a very citric bitter/sour with the "mentioned on the label" Coriander and has notes of bread but... it's also very sweet, a Malt Liquor kind of sweetness...my initial impression is that the flavours aren't meshing very well together.
After a few more sips, I'm starting to "see" and appreciate the harmony that *is* actually there and this becomes a fine sipper. The sweetness that I complained about earlier is now well balanced and in fact taken over by the spice and citrus from the hops.
Oh and yes, there's certainly some warming from this 11%abv but Alesmith did a pretty fine job of hiding it. I might have to get some more of this for, what I'm sure will be, the upcoming harsh winter that is due here in Casper.
Bottom line: My initial impression was so-so but the more I sipped on this Belgian Strong Pale Ale, the more it pleased my palate. My hat's off to Alesmith once again! rami_pl (4778) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 3, 2017
