Demise (57) - Wellington, - MAR 2, 2009
Pours an almost opaque honey-golden with whilte head. Wheat, banana, slight caramel and hint of alcohol on the nose. Subtle citrus and biscuit aromas also noticable. Smooth caramel, wheat and malt flavours, moving through to more subtle banana and orange characters. A bitter malt and touch of alcohol present at the end of the mouthful, which linger on the palate. Smooth and balanced with a lack of carbonation. Nice, but nothing overly exciting.

Una cerveza equilibrada, tanto de aroma como de sabor, refrescante para una tarde de verano.

Aromas a leva, platano y clavo. Buen aspecto espuma persistente. EN boca muy maltosa y suave, de trago largo.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Met dit bier is de verslaving eigenlijk begonnen in de jaren 80. Nog steeds lekker: mout, gist, ietwat kruidig, zacht en in balans. Prima!

Cristobal37 (1012) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 23, 2017
Slightly boozy candied sugar aroma. Hazy honey gold with some sediment floatin around. Honey, bananas, peach, mango, spearmint tastes and the body reminds me of a wheat beer (even though this is not brewed with wheat). Very soft and easy drinking, cant taste the alcohol at all. I really like it. Not drastically different from other Belgian strong ales, but the body is really light and silky. Would like to set one of these aside for a while and try it again.

jfb (6131) - GERMANY - MAR 21, 2017
(bottle) very hazy deep golden colour with a couple of floaties and a frothy off-white head. aroma of pale malts and heavy gletschereis, with lots of wildflower honey, some yeast and a touch of caramel. flavour is mostly bubble gum and earth, slightly oxidized, with a light sweetness, some notes of ethanol, tobacco and strawberry jam in the semi-dry finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

GemmeDeReve (79) - FRANCE - MAR 20, 2017
Bire cuivre claire avec trs lgre mousse, un arme de foin, assez floral mais avec une touche mtallique, lgrement ptillante avec un got un peu amer et dpices mais fini avec de leau, le palais reste tres lger. Rien de bien exceptionnel, en mme temps on est sur de lindustriel.

Liked this one even though strong ales have a too distinct spirit taste for my liking. This one however doesnt give you a feeling of drinking a vodka-laced beer. Interesting aroma, drinks well

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2017
Bouteille 33cl. Bue lpoque o ce genre tait quasi tout ce qui se trouvait de dispo ... heureux que ces jours sont rvolus. Dore col blanc disparaissant vite. Arme au nez fin pic avec une petite note de coriandre, rtro de fruits confits, malt cara ple, pils, rappel bien belge niveau des levures. Le nez reste quelconque au vu de tout ce qui se brasse ce jour, on semble tre de retour au milieu des annes 90. Palais met en avant un ct ester marqu, touche de banane avec un rappel tirant sur la Leffe, fruit modr de pche fermente. Malt cara pils, forment donnant une petite rondeur. Sucre rsiduel apportant le plus dialcool. Recette ressuscite, mais qui ne sera pas celle qui remettra la Belgique sur le devant de la scne belge craft.
