ochniczek (317) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2017
33cl bottle. Straw golden color, quite clear with moderate whitehead. Aroma is yeast and citrus. Flavour with cereal grain notes and herbal accents. Well-balanced sweetness and bitterness, quite drinkable

zboj (171) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Piwo w barwie słomkowo-złote, lekko zamglone. Wysycenie duże, piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, trwała i dająca ładną koronkę na szkle. W aromacie nuty owocowe, lekko kwiatowe, czuć pracę belgijskich drożdży. W smaku te aromaty są rwnież wyczuwalne, jest goryczka, lekka kwaskowość. Niestety, dość szybko wszystko przykrywa intensywna nuta alkoholowa, zostawiająca w ustach właśnie taki alkoholowy posmak.

midovark (842) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2017
Bottled. Pours deep golden with thin, but long lasting white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma combined with some malts and grass in aroma and taste. Medium bodied and lively carbonated, despite the ABV its easily drinkable. Not bad, expected more tho.

kdd230 (63) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
330ml. bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a retentive white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, hops. Flavour yeasty and malty with a sourness and bitterness to the finish that is attractive. Carbonation fairly high and slightly acidic but the high alcohol content is not overwhelming. A top Belgian strong ale.

matty (404) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2017
750 mL bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a thick, white cap of foam. Aroma is mostly yeasty with a touch of sour and a bit of fruitiness. Medium body, the flavor is bready malt, yeast and a little of a sour funk. Finish is mainly clean with just a touch of sourness to it. Excellent!

Bouteille 33cl. Rien dire sur ce grand classique de la bire belge. Indmodable.

Fullpintofbeer (322) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
From bottle. Sparse white head, yellow colour, great lacing, hazy. Aroma of fruits, berries, lemon, grass. Lightly sour with dry/bitter aftertaste. Full body, long finish, lively. Pretty good, refreshing and nicely balanced.

Een van de bekendere Belgische bieren met een hoog alcoholpercentage. Smaak is bitter met een ietwat zoete smaak.

MAGICuenca91 (82) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 26, 2017
Tomada en copa a partir de botella de 33 cl. Tena muchas expectativas respecto a esta cerveza y no las ha cumplido como esperaba. Sin ser una mala cerveza (para nada) creo que no est al nivel de otras tantas strong ale belgas. El aroma es afrutado, pero no demasiado intenso, est un poco a medio gas. La apariencia es rubia clara con corona de espuma permanente. Un sabor que sin estar nada mal, no aporta mucho. Es afrutada y tiene toques ctricos. El paladar correcto, pero flojo para una strong ale de estas caractersticas.
