HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
A slightly above average Belgian strong dark thing, with a bit of the usual sweet fruity estery component you expect and then some slight orange peel. Drinkable, but totally whatever.

markoijelena (2810) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - JAN 9, 2017
Draft sample at Bir&Fud Roma, Italy. 17.12.2016. Ciaone Alberto. Pour it dark amber color with small white head. Aroma figs, raisin, orange peel. Taste starts with sweet candy sugar, roasted nuts, spices, figs, plum just a pinch, finish with caramel note, nice Belgian feel all the time, really good hidden alcohol, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Nice!

Aroma is surprisingly weak. Appearance may be a turn off for some given it is somewhat full of sediments. Doesnt bother me but it may bother some people. Taste is good. Its is orange infused and flavorful. Quiet tasty. Leaves a very smooth refreshing palate. Overall a good selection but it is somewhat pricey . A good brew to try and have occassionally.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2016
12.7 oz. bottle served in a tumbler- whelp, this is it... for now. I gotta quit smoking, and when I even have one beer, I gotta blow some smoke. See you fuckers on the other side... poured a barely transparent darkened brown color when held to a light source. Off tan ring about the vessel for a head, lively medium carbonation. Aroma of plums and raisins, handspun candi sugar, and tangerines. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is still present but is wrapped in a fine sugar coat with notes of molasses, middle has some great darkened fruits, finish is sweet but not cloying- its actually enjoyable for once! Good way to go out if this is my last beer- and least it sure in the fuck was one from TexUGHtuckyland!
