urge13 (17) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
From bottle into tulip. Light Amber with a crisp white head and slight lacing. Cranberry aroma with a little tart cherry. Bitter cherry with slight orange, and malt. Fairly oily on the tongue but has enough carbonation to make it work. Overall a decent beer,

Nose: Sweet caramel malt, orange, vanilla, bread, raisin, apple and toffee.
Taste: Brown sugar, caramel, raisin, biscuit, plum, yeast, herbs, orange marmalade, malt and hops.
Body: Medium body. High carbonation. A little bitterness.

Great taste and moutfeel. Not overwhelming though. Good solid Belgian strong ale.

vipinvelp (4071) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2015
Clear orange, big white lasting lacing foam head. Sweet aroma and taste, probably by high alcohol content, still quite nice beer. (Velp 201508)

Bosbouw (2780) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2015
Heldere koper kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt zoetig, stroop, suiker. Smaakt zoetig, stroop. Zoete meuk.

chromeotaphor (156) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2015
Diep donker caramel warm aroma. Prachtig bruin uiterlijk met een lichte vertroebeling. Rijke zoet bittere body met hinten van caramel vanille en erg fruitig (appel perzik). Drinkt zich verraderlijk makkelijk weg voor een grand cru! Zelfs een beetje dorstlessend?! Aangename maar niet speciale grand cru.

onceblind (8186) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Slightly hazy deep copper with a lush Rocky off white head. Creamy yet musty Belgian strong ale aromas with some bright Amber malts and toast, maybe a dash of fruitiness as well. Smooth and mellow Belgian amber malt flavor, a dash of booze, Belgian fruity esters, light toast, amber grains and gentle Belgian estery booze on the finish. Semidry and quite tasty.

BlazerT (749) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 21, 2015

Icedwarf (1392) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2015
Troebel donkergeel bier zonder schuim. Smaak is zoet en fruitig, vanille, perzik en appels. Erg goed bier, smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

Kolor jest ciemno czerwony, br?zowy, mglisty z ma?o sympatycznym osadem ma dnie, ale jak to mwi? co nas nie zabija to nas wzmacnia, wi?c mo?e b?dzie dobrze. Piana zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzykw, be?owa. Niestety do?? szybko opada, redukuj?c si? do niewielkiego pier?cienia. Aromat bardzo intensywny, w pierwszym rzucie mamy mid ale raczej nie w formie p?ynnej. Do tego dochodz? daktyle, likier z fig i rodzynek, nieco aromatw koniakowych, przyprawy, cukier kandyzowany. Smak bardzo miodowy, pojawiaj? si? ponownie figi i daktyle, karmel, generalnie s?odko, cho? piwo wcale nie zamula i nie zakleja. Ponownie jak w zapachu s? tu akcenty winne czy nawet koniakowe. W Serafijn Grand Cru goryczka jest raczej niska, nieznaczna. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. Alkohol cho? jest go 9% jest odczuwalny tylko raczej jako przyjemne ciepe?ko. Faktura piwa raczej wydaje si? by? t?usta jednak nie daje wra?enia, ?e piwo jest masywne. Mo?na raczej odnie?? wra?enie, ?e jest lekko wodniste.
