Armes de raisins et pruneaux, robe marron, faible mousse. En bouche, trs original: on retrouve les pruneaux et le grain... Avec une touche dalcool. Assez bien quilibr.

kapusil (1243) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 4, 2016
0.75l bottle. Dark ruby body, lacing off-white head. Aroma of orange zest, coriander, raisins, toast and grapes. Taste of orange, dark sugar, grapes, plums and lemon zest. Its interesting that every sip is a bit different for me. Truly awesome and very special beer.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
Cloudy brown purple colors with a copper hue and no visible activity. Frothy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of fruity vinous grapes and dark berries. Flavors of dark fruits, oak, grapes, apple, burnt sugar, molasses, herbal spices. Highly vinous but still pleasant having a soft sweetness coating and a nice sharp feel. Woody and slightly earthy. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation almost champagne like. Well intensified medium strength finish, ending with a slightly spicy, fruity wine like dry but clean feel, and a lingering oaky woody feel. Overall an excellent craft to savor like a good wine. Complex and rich tasty flavors. Vinous but still fresh. Warming but not too boozy. Well rounded thick body. More suited for cold winter times as an appetizer.

Vrsesbarna rnyalatban kerl elő az vegből a kanadai főzde aptsgi stlus sre, mely testvrtől, a Lupulus-verzitl igencsak klnbzik, szmomra mgis szimpatikusabb, s a belga mondanivalt is autentikus mdon hordozza, gy a műfajra jellemző jegyek is sokkal jobban rvnyeslnek. Mint pldul a klnfle aszalt nyalnksgok, fge s rumos datolya, trkmogyor, kkszőlő s di vonalai, melyek egy lnk, alkoholos ftyol alatt teljesednek ki. ze sem szab korltokat az előbbi aromk testet ltsnek, szerkezete befogadja a mazsols-stemnytszts, likőrs-aszalvnyos, de mindenekelőtt belga lesztős komponenseket, nem a legslyosabb azonban az zvilg, a karakternek pedig egy rnyalatnyit kisebb szemű buborkokkal tarktott, krmesebb sznsavtartalom előnyre vlna, br ez utbbi hinyrzet az idő előrehaladtval szinte megszűnik, csillapodik ugyanis az lnksg, jobban kisimul a test. Fűszeres, korianderes utzzel, hosszan tart, kerek jegyekkel bcszik az sszessgben igen tartalmas s lmnyds ital.

ClarkVV (6067) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 16, 2016
750mL bottle, very generous extra from JulienHuxley. Cant quite make out the date, as its badly smudged, but its sometime in 2015, I believe. Drunk 6/9/16.
Massive, overflowing, light beige head that is very well-retained, tops a ruby-tinged mahogany/beige body with good clarity.
Brown sugar, brown bread, hazelnuts, vanilla, clove, black pepper, honey, the list goes on, as it should for a Belgian Strong ale, which showcases both specialty malt and yeast (as well as some spice here). It all works in a pretty harmonious balance, the more "dry" phenols and spices winning out, but never out-of-balance. Tons of fruitiness (red fruits) is highly enjoyable and bright and theres no sign of booze or any astringency. The esters are clean and the aroma is just all-around well-executed.
Rich honey, brown bread and light cinnamon all combine with a strong sense of balance. Dries out considerably on the end with light fruitiness, some earthy, crunchy cereal-like notes and light hints of vanilla. Maybe just a bit more clove-like character than Id like, overall, but thats really the only complaint here. The carbonation and malty texture are both perfect as are the classy esters. Even the spice, which is moderately apparent, is a welcome complexity and blends in/matches with the phenols and malts. No alcohol either. Great balance.

LouisP (293) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Au visuel, la bire est dune grande beaut : une belle couleur bronze nous rappelant une vieille pice dun sous, une mousse stable large dun doigt qui reste de longue minute et une belle effervescence laissant entrevoir un liquide bien en vie. Au nez on distingue trs clairement les levures belges, les esters donnant un arme trs sucre au liquide. En bouche, a se gte, alors que cest trs raisin, sucr, avec une touche caramel. Lalcool prsent rchauffe la gorge aprs dj quelques gorges. Malgr la complexit, le liquide reste assez mince, avec un petit manque de corps.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Pours an unfiltered mahogany with a massive tan head. Aroma is of plums, grapes, caramel, and toffee. Tastes of cherry, raisin, toffee, caramel, plums and sugar and spice. Has a medium body with average carbonation. Very smooth and fruity aftertaste that is really quite easy to drink despite the alcohol.

reddish brown colour, huge beige-ish head; aroma of driied fruits, chocolate notes, some banana, grape and, surprisingly, coke (or kola nut); taste of intensive dried fruitiness, banana and coke again as well as some chocolate, celery and herbs; great Belgian strong ale!
