Very clear golden color with big head in a Duvel glass. Sweet aroma, some caramelized fruit, not very much there. It has a strong alcoholic and sweet flavour, with almost nothing else. It’s a very cheap beer in Belgium, and I supose they drink it to get drunk, because it’s the only "advantage" of drinking this beer IMO. BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2007
Yellow-gold beer with a nice white head. Notes of fruitiness in the aroma. Sweet malty flavors. Alcohol present but not to much for a 10% vol alc. Notes of spices and some hop bitterness. johndoughty (5438) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Golden and misleading. Strong but not as much as you would expect from a ten percenter. Some bitterness but well balanced with the other flavours. Recommended. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2007
50 cl can.
Not Belgium’s finest, thsi beer is similar to other strong blones, but it does not have the seduciveness of, say, a Duvel - the alcohol shines through a bit too much. larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
Small white head. Amber body. Milky spicy mild aroma with fruity notes. Strong roasty milky fruity taste, quite dry, and yet sweetish. Spicy banana notes, and perhaps a faint touch of wood. Dry, herbal aftertaste. Mild, smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Quite nice. The alcohol isn’t very noticeable. Dangerously drinkable. (0.33l bottle from Dorstvlegel.)

Bottle. Clear medium amber orange color with a large frothy / creamy excellent lacing mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, moderate malty, toasted, light alcoholic, notes cardboard / paper. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 It pours a golden beer with a rather big chaotic head. Notes of alcohol, bubblegum, caramel and glue. Rather malty, some marzipan and banana elements. Enjoyable in a strange way. The taste is worse: Pretty cloying, alcoholic and metallic. A pretty strong beer! It’s sweet and has some good hop character, I must admit. An alcoholic dry finish follows with notes of brown sugar. Extremley syrupy. Not that bad after all... But far from being truly enjoyable. Notice: This beer isn’t easy drinkable at all! A nice sipping beer... oberabcbbsok (692) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2007
Had itbefore already from bottle and draft. Now once more from draught. A very nice and good tasting strong beer. Something sweet and fruity in the taste oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Canned. golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts as well as some spices. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts and some fruit. The fun thing is, if I wouldn’t know it’s a belgian strong ale, I would go for the fact it’s a very wellbalanced ESL or ML, I still think it’s a wellbalanced thing, even though I would wait for a bit more both aroma and flavourwise from a Belgian Strong Ale.
