Bottle. Moderate malt notes of grain, roasted, nutty and caramel, perfume and cooked lemon for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with date and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy slightly off-white with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, medium orange/tan. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and slightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, a little slick with a lively carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This is a nice Belgian Strong Ale and a very nice beer overall from Gordash. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - APR 7, 2012
Bottle 33 cl, trade. Pours clear brownish amber with a nice beige head leaving small lace. Aroma is sweet malty, slightly sour, spicy, yeasty, bready, raisins, fidgeas and hoppy. Flavor quite similar to aroma, acidy sourish and malty in start, alcohol and spices add on the middle and bitterness with some peppery tones towards end. Finishes bitter peppery and warming alcohol. rae912 (35) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2012
A lovely brew that pours a golden amber. Just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering. Dogbrick (12936) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 03/01/2012. Hazy copper-amber color with a medium white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of candied fruit, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with a somewhat cloying sweetness and notes of fruit syrup, yeast and a touch of hops. The finish is syrupy with a fruit aftertaste. A sipper but not in a good way, there is just too much sweet. Ebenezer (6) - - FEB 23, 2012 does not count
PIcked this up on my way to the Florida Keys - my goal being to try beers I can’t get at home ... I was intrigued by the blending of saison and tripel styles ... Doesn’t work, in this case, anyway ... heavy cloying sweetness overpowered every other aspect of this brew, Still, it’s 10 percent ABV and I WAS on vacation, but next trip I will be staying away from this one.

Yuck! Hated it! Brownish yellow pour with slight, off-white head. Sweet. I mean really sweet! Yuck again! Sweet aftertaste.

12 oz bottle thanks to Tommy. Bright orange with a fast fading head. Nose is lemony, yeasty. Taste is a bit medicinal, citrusy, a bit sweet and seems heavy bodied for the style. Sticky with a an aggressive alcohol bite at the end. A sipper but I don’t want to sip this one all night. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Dull amber. The aroma is spicy (astringent coriander) and fairly yeasty. Malty, a little bit gluey, sweet with cinnamon and other spices in the background. Not particularly refined. A drinkable beer, though, that would be better if it was a bit lighter. jjgmd (2150) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours hazy rusty golden, with a nice foamy mattress head. Aroma is malty,earthy, fruity and sweet. Taste is sweet and malty, and thirst quenching. Mild alcohol taste despite the ABV, nice appreciable taste of honey. Finish is short, sweet and leaves you wanting more. Quaff Score
7 / 10 zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours amber with a beige head and aroma of spices, malt, and yeast. Flavor is sweet, of malts, spices, yeast, and fruits with the alcohol well hidden at 10%. Good, solid brew that has nice flavor and taste.
