Various Belgian like Rock Candies, hops and grains are employed to express variations within the style. Deceivingly drinkable, some liken theses ales to the Devil sneaking up on you, so consume responsibly.

Ampolla 65cl. En nas tocs d’aranja i força floral. El gust és molt similar a l’aroma. L’alcohol i es present, es nota. El final és amarg. Quan s’escalfa una mica es més dolça i es va dissipant el sabor de l’alcohol inicial. M’agrada’t.

One of the more drinkable belgian strong ales I have had recently. Nice sweet malty, grassy aromas...sweet bready, and citrus notes too. A very nice bright sunny yellow pour with lots of sediment. Oily and somewhat flat palate. Smooth...very nice. Sweet and malty and bready...a bit of citrus, with a seamless hoppy finish. Nice stuff.

KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 Draught at Tadg’s. Spicy, yeasty nose with some lemon. Dark gold color with lace. Sweet malty flavor with honey and lemon. A bit too sweet for me, without a decent hop bite or solid crispness. Ok, though.

On tap at Tadg’s. Fruity nose (peach, berries), with light hopping. Clear medium dark straw color. Beautiful peach flavor in initial; this strengthens in mid palate; in final it all levels out and glides down to a pleasant sweetness. Medium body. Lip-smacking stuff.

Bottl.e Pours a hazy golden color with a fairly thick white head. Little bit of sweetness and floral notes to the nose, though they aren’t all that strong. Taste is much sweeter and almost harsh. Not a huge fan of this one.
