Honestly dont like it much. Very bubbly mouthfeel similar to a lager and a very strong alcholic taste. Perhaps not a good sample?

Had it in both 330 and 750 size, with edge to 750 sizes flavor. Large, fluffy merengue like head leaving lingering lace. Banana aromas with a little sweetness. Astringent blast when warm. Does not posess the balance of a trappist. A good time.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2007 Beer 18 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/1/06 bottled and drank in traditonal glassware at Hector Chicken a Fast Food Restaraunt in Downtown Brussels. Belgium is crazy, just for the fact that a beer like this can be purchased at what is basically a European Popeyes. Anyway this is a solid Beligan strong that always tastes nice. Even though it is widely availabe it is very drinkable and strong. However, it is no where near my top choice for a belgian ale.

Bottle. Poured a nice clear yellow with a massive, foamy and turning to a rocky head. Great sticky lacing. Aromas of yeast, alcohol and lemon. Taste is dry, light fruit notes, similar in a pilsner style.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Bottle with Balduin at Envy in Adam. Pale but very strong, almost perfect beer taste, spicy and citrusy. Big head and a perennial favorite.

janubio (761) - SPAIN - AUG 22, 2006
Big foamy head that last long. Very pale yellow color. It smells very sugary, with hints of coriander and clove. Flowers and prunes too. Citric flavor, with spices, coriander and fruits in the mouth. Bready and flowery. Very complex.

Fruity and spicy aroma, with hints of spirits. Beautiful golden apperance, especially when served in the proper glass. Very nice on the palate, with complex aftertaste. A huge head that doesnt quit, almost to the point of annoyance. Note that this is a strong ale, although the high alcohol contents are not readily distuingishable when served at the proper temprature (well chilled). Definately my favorite ale.

I think this is a great beer. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A big head that lasts. Good carbonation that also lasts for a surprisingly long time. Another great thing about this one is that you can enjoy it at almost all temperatures. when cold its very refreshing. When temperated the flavor kicks in. So take your time drinking this beer.
