VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Slightly reddish brown with a short lived cream colored head. Sweet banana yeasty aroma with a faint spicyness. Sweet acidic fruit flavor with a slightly sour aftertaste (also a little chalky). This beer really does not match my drinking preferences.

Bottle at Delirium Cafe Tokyo. Copper color, white head. Bitter taste with ripe fruits, toffee, caramel, a bit of hops, earthy notes, yeast, toast and spices. Bitter finish with ripe fruits, toffee, caramel, earthy notes, yeast and spices. Very nice Belgian strong ale.

Bottle @home (rating backlog). Pours copper/orange, white head. Nose is spices, fruity, malty. Taste is oranges, spices, fruity, slight peach.

The deep amber, malty brew brings up lots of images of Christmas with a flavorful profile of cinannmon, cloves, all spices and stewed oranges. Great depth with a warming finish

Red Orange colour, quite frothy head. Earthy malty sweet aroma. Quite alcohol.

750-ml caged and corked bottle pours cloudy orange-brown with small off-white head. Aroma: caramel, yeast, sweet spices. Flavor: all of the above with some honey and grapes. Medium- to full-bodied.

How the hell didn’t I rate this. Noted at least 1 Belgian rating missing from where it was before recently, so who knows, maybe this one fell victim to some moron or just bug. Shared with Hrabren, thanks! Slighly hazy dark amber body, enormous off white head. Fresh caramel and wild strawberry aromas, slome bubblegum. Taste... mild fruitiness beaten by all too dry phenolic touches. Strawberry and light peach. Okay, good even perfumey Belgian ale.

lokis333 (563) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAY 22, 2017
Hazy amber colour with white foam. Aromas of sweet cherry, plum and lollipops. Palate, full body with sooth texture leaving sweet finish. Taste, sweet of spice, cinnamon, fruits and light touch of alcohol. Overall, nice cinnamon gum like sweet beer.

7/3/8/4/17 Hängt dir den klassischten aller BSA Mäntel über. Kupfer, Karamelo & Kräuter. The KKK took my baby away 😁...🚀❤👌 0,1/1 Jetson. Fass. ZYTHOS 2017.

Ruddy brown pour with everlasting tan foam. Aroma is malty and semi sweet with some astringent, somewhat sour/metallic notes. Flavor follows very closely. Having just had Rochefort 8 and regularly drinking Chimay Blue, this was a letdown for sure. The pink elephant had done well for me in the past, but not so much with this one. Okay, and drinkable for sure, but expectations were so high.

hawthorne00 (4067) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 16, 2017
Bottle. Deep clear red with a very large off white head. Aroma of caramelised bananas, raisins, prunes, mace, aniseed. Full bodied, not terribly syrupy or boozy. Moderate carbonation. Some roasted flavours join the dried and stewed fruit and the finish is drier than expected with moderate bitterness. Licorice and aniseed hang around. Good.
