LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 9, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Bottiglia da 33cl da Paola a Brescia, colore dorato chiaro, carico, schiuma abbondante; sembra una Duvel torbida a guardarla, ma il sapore interessante, ha un tocco di acidit forse lievito, retrogusto bislacco sembra di bere un pesce. Curiosa per Alken Maes.______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE______________33cl bottle @ Paolas pub in Brescia, color is clear gold, deep, big head; looks like a hazy Duvel, but flavor is completely different and somewhat interesting: a touch of sourness, maybe yeast, weird final with fishy notes. Strange brew for Alken Maes.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle. Clear, golden pour, leaving a white head. Fruit, some yeast, tropical fruits and some spices in the aroma. The flavor has a nice, quite fruity flavor, lightly spiced and a with some yeast. Medium body. The finish has some hops, as well as pale malt. Quite nice, but its not in the same league as Duvel. (070707)

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2007
Bottle bought at TRC Hotel in Launceston Tasmania. Murky golden with a towering white head that collapses into rocky merangue islands. Very yeasty aroma, a little sharp. Yeasty palate, a little spicy, biiter astringent finish. Alcohol is poorly integrated and borders on harsh. Not my favourite belgian strong.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a thin yellowy-straw colour with a thinnish white head. Nose is funky sherberty fruit with developed brewing yeast. Mouth is sweet, slightly sour tinges with some fruit and maltiness balanced sweetness. A little fruit there, with alcohol warmness and a slight burning of a hop attack. Finishes sweet and sugar syrupy. Quite nice.
