4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Bottle. Poured a cloudy medium yellowish orange with a very large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that had great longevity and excellent lacing.
The aroma was moderately heavy of grain malts, an earthy yeast and flowery hops with nice notes of citrus, banana and a bit of spice (coriander I believe).
It tasted kind of sweet with a hint of citrus at first and then became a bit bitter and quite yeasty with a mild alcohol finish leaving a nice bold flavor lingering on the taste buds for a long while.
Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body and had a dry texture with a nice prickly carbonation.
Overall a great Strong Ale with a medley of components coming together for one really fantastic tasting brew which does a nice job of concealing the high alcohol content.
Aroma: malt, fruits, spices
Taste: malt, dried fruits, notes of yeast and spices. Balanced and drinkable

Pours golden, clear. Fantastic aroma which is dominated by yeast and fruit. The taste is well balanced between fruit, sweetness, yeasty sourness and bitterness at the end. A strong pale ale, not distinguishable from a Tripel. Very good! Stuu666 (14533) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2017

Clear golden color with big white frothy head that stays long.Aroma of florals, hops, belgian yeast, malts and alcohol. Taste is sweet with belgian style yeast, combined with floral hoppiness. Alcohol finish. Low carbonation. Taste a bit too alcohol for me and pricey but overall very enjoyable. VamboladeTolly (2171) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAR 24, 2017

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy bronze with a big frothy head. The aroma features grainy maltiness, floral hoppiness, fruitiness and Belgian yeastiness. Taste is medium to heavily sweet initially, later becoming slightly drier but staying sweet nonetheless; hop bitterness is low. Pale grainy maltiness provides the platform for Belgian yeast and fruitiness displaying especially orange. Some floral hop flavours appear as well. The palate is medium to full bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Malt sweetness is a bit too prominent here; it does not give room for other Belgian dimensions.
