Craig on Heat Tasting at ChrisO’s. Almost clear gold beer, fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and light. Modest fine carbonation. Sugary sweetness in the airy malt. Some floralness and candy fruits. Smooth light finish. A bit sweet, even for me.

Bottle 750ml (Saveur)FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2013
Clear deep honey-golden color, small steady white head. Berryish aroma of a bit tart marmalade. Medium-bodied. Sweetish and berryish flavor with some grassy hoppyness. Sweetness covers the most of alcohol but it is there underlying. Simple, sweet and even a bit rough.
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)HenrikSoegaard (14704) - Randers, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2011
Far from clean aroma, a bit messed up. Simple sweet malts, some spiky esters, some alcoholic vapours too. Very sweet. Rich gold, thin fizzy-to-tight head, actively carbonated. Sweet, a bit corny. Not unpleasant once you’re past the sweetness. Strange fatty hops in the finish. Very much not a good Belgian strong, but not giving me reason to hate it. Not gonna bin it, but not gonna savour it either. Meh.
Bottle. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and yeasty aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Some tripple licorice notes. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. mR_fr0g (13977) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
