3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
4 year old bottle I poured this into a snifter-type glass, not quite a Trappist style. It originally poured out straw colored like a Duvel, then turned yellowish-brown as sediment swirled in. The foamy head almost boils away. It's got a big Belgian smell and taste of oranges, coriander, candi sugar and honey. First beer I tasted that reminded me of honey, after dozens of “honey weisses.” Rather pleasant to sip while relaxing.
Here's to our guest -
Don't let him rest.
But keep his elbow bending.

Full time to think

Bottle. Pours orange golden body and foam lace top. Aroma has banana from the yeast, toasted malts and some herbal floral hops. Taste is medium to full sweetness and for some that will be a delight and others will be dismayed. It certainly predominates. Palate is medium bodied, slick feel, lively carbonation, and a light sour finish. It may attract a younger and female clientele but it won't recruit an old fossil like me.

Godd og behagelig belisk strong. tilpas med bitterhed og sødme. fyldig øl, der savner lidt friskhed. azzurro (504) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2018
An odd beer for a Belgian. I thought it is a high-quality lager/pilsner, but a weak one as a strong Belgian ale.

330ml bottle. Orange shade. White head. Grassy, caramel, sweetish honey finish. Decent, maybe a little sweet and one dimensional though. Radubrew (10) - ROMANIA - DEC 28, 2017
Good carbonation, nice aroma of orange, a bit of spice, also alcohol, medium hazy body, sweet taste. Aftertaste not quite impressing, but ok. martpez (373) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2017
Drank 4 months after bottling. Has a rounded yeasty flavour bit of bean curd and a touch of fruit. Does not hid the avb well. Lovely rich velvet texture. A lesser Belgium ale I have to say. Very sweet. phfyysik (1485) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2017
