ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2016
Pale yellow translucent white with a nice foamy head that leaves a good mark on the glass while dissipates. The smell is slightly sweet, with hints of biscuits, grapefruit, pineapple, grass, pine, hay and lemon zest. The palate spectacular balance between sweet and sour, with new notes of cookies, white bread, grapefruit, kumquats, pineapple, mango, dry soil, hay, lemon zest and hints of alcohol. Soft feeling while stout, slightly dry.

langeveld12 (500) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2016
Typical belgian strong ale but in its class one of the best I have ever tasted. Contains vanilla, banana and citrus and forest fruits. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness and between malts and hops. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol hardly noticeable. Very very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (9847) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 9, 2016
Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Thanks to JulienHuxley for finding me to share. Bright, crisp hops in the nose, along with Belgian yeast, lemon, citrus, dough. Flavor is sweet orange and lemon, crisp malt, creackers. Lightly yeasty, with solid bitterness and great lemony fruit. A great New World Belgian Strong. Glad I finally got to try it. Why cant more North American brewers do Belgian like this?

Halovny aranysrga szne fltt tmtt, pffeszkedő, hfehr hab fejlődik sebesen, vilgos rnyalata nmi meglepetssel is szolgl, miutn elmletileg "belgian strong ale"-ről van sz. Karakterisztikja alapjn ugyanis inkbb tűnik valami vadabb, lnkebb italnak, mivelhogy tripelesen cspős, gabons, mde IPA-szerűen komlvezrelt jegyeket egyarnt megcsillant gy illatban, mint zben, mely utbbi amellett, hogy vibrl s knnyed, telt s gazdag is egyben. Na nem az a kirobban, maltaszirupos jelleg, inkbb a fűszeresebb, pezsgőbb hangulat, sznsavval alaposan teletűzdelt tpus, amiben a koml a szoksosnl erőteljesebben kpviselteti magt, tlslyba azonban nem kerl, a főzet harmnijt sem bontja meg. Ez utbbi jellemvons egybknt a legnagyobb ernye az italnak, letisztult zvilg, egyszerű, de minden szempontbl kielgtő a test. Alms, szraz pezsgős, kenyeres s lesztős jegyek egyarnt megcsillannak a testben, sszessgben vltozatos benyomsok sort hordozva. Ha helynval is a rragasztott kategria, annak a knnyedebb, ha gy tetszik populrisabb verzijt szolgltatja, ami miatt a magam rszről taln tartzkodnk az lmezőnyben elhelyezni az italt, amellett, hogy termszetesen egy kiemelkedően j főzetről van sz.

Lore (2495) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 30, 2015
opalescent golden colour, minimal off-white head; aroma of intensive fruitiness, citruses, malty-caramel sweetness, floral and earthy notes and some minimal alcohol; taste of fruits, citruses, hints of honey, malty sweetness, some spices and signs of alcohol; dry mouthfeel; amazing beer! It was the best masterpiece of a great beer tasting - at least from my side :-) thank you very much, kapusil! :-)

Keg @El Lpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 23-11-2015.
In short: belgian strong ale with alcohol well hidden.
A very clear pale golden strong ale, plenty of belgian yeast character, sweet, bready, alcohol very well integrated. Surprised by the 100/100 rating, its a good beer, but not the best style example.
