Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 17/20
Fatehunter (2561) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Poured into a tall tulip glass. A big three fingers of head on a clear, golden colored body. Lots of bubbles coming up. The aroma is lemon and crushed grain in a wonderful way. The taste is champagne like with a light fruit and mild bitterness. The complexity is great. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Obviously one of the best beers around.

Fine taste but feels very regular. Almost a pils beer, but the best from that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33ml Bottle at jumpsky. Have had this beer countless times before, but only now decided to rate it. Has a yellow golden and clear appearance with a thick lasting and impressive head. Aroma is dried fruits, kiwi, banana. Taste is sweet and bitter with a very worm and carbonated mouthfeel. Long bitter sweet finish as well.

Jabic (565) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Ar: Banana, peach, and cotton candy; juicy orange zest and lemon; candied malt. Ap: Deep gold and clear; giant slightly off-white head with amazing retention, leaving peaks and valleys of fluff and foam dashes around the glass sides. T: Clean sweet malt up front, light sweetness; pineapple, orange; medium-high bitterness, some fine dried-flower taste; clean alcohol and a bit of chalk; finish has some banana and orange peel. P: Medium-light body, fairly lean; very high carbonation, slightly sharp but mostly mouth-filling. O: A spectacular Belgian golden strong ale; bright fruit notes, though with some restraint; phenols, bitterness, and alcohol are in great balance with the malt and fruit flavors; quite drinkable for such a big beer--the point, I guess!

Barwa: Złociste, zmętnione
Piana: Biała, grubo pęcherzykowa,trwała, ładny lacing
Aromat: Słodki, słodowy
Smak: Słodkie, słodowe, miękkie, z dobrze ułożonym alkoholem.
Odczucie: Wysokie nasycenie, ale jest bardzo gładkie w odczuciu.
Ogólnie: Lekkie, smukłe, bardzo pijalne, lecz zdradzieckie w tym że w ogóle nie czuć tych 8,5% :D

bytemesis (8257) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear golden medium white head, long lasting with good lacing. Aroma of hay, dust, Belgian spice, hint of grain. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, spicy and super hot. Medium body, too carbonated.

LiwkoLiwko (392) - POLAND - JUN 16, 2017
Jasne, słomkowe z obfitą i trwałą pianą. W aromacie owocowo, nieco szampańsko i kwaśno. W smaku wytrawnie i jednocześnie słodko.

Light golden with white head. Clear. Yeasty esters with some fruit in the aroma. Taste is quite dry with bitterness at the end.

geolgau (212) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - JUN 14, 2017
Aroma is nice and subtle, full of fruity esters, mainly banana and lemon. Some herbal notes, tripel-ish feel. Crispy and sweet, with herbs in the taste, this is very refreshing, and the alcohol does not burn the tongue. Really nice.

WarMan04 (308) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Pours hazy, golden colour with a white head. Aroma of fruits, biscuits, citrus, phenols. Taste is rather dry with a bit of sweet malty background. Grassy bitterness, low to medium bodied, highly carbonated. Great
