Bottle. Semi-clear golden body, medium to small head. Aroma has honey, biscuity malts and Belgian yeast. A bit thin mouthfeel. Taste has sweet malts, caramelly and biscuity. Hops are dry and herbal. Finish has notes of white wine sourness and the booze is pretty evident. Not a very smooth sipper. More yeast could give this beer a more fuller and perhaps smoother feeling.

Evilman (199) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 A classic piece we got here. This is your classic "Strong Belgian beer", somewhat similar to Bush ambre, alcohol level is damn good and aftertaste lasts for a while in mouth. If you?re looking for something enjoyable that delivers well on every aspect, this is the way to go. Especially great with dry sausage to eat along! APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle. Golden with a small head. Very strong presence of alcohol and slightly bitter. Seriously powerful and a good example of this style.

Inoven (522) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met familie. Helder goudgeel bier met flink schuim dat redelijk snel weg trekt. Aroma van citrusvruchten en kruiden. Smaak is fruitig en ietsje bitter. Nasmaak is hoppig maar trekt snel weg.

MelvinKalksma (1367) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, Belgian yeast, flowers, sugar, corn and bread.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with a medium/large white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts heavy sweet with malts, Belgian yeast, flowers, sugar and corn; ends slightly dry with bread.

Overall:
This beer is intense and...nothing else. Holy shit as if adding only Belgian yeast is not enough to make a beer sweet. Adding corn and sugar is simply not done in almost all beers, especially if it is already sweet with its necessary ingredients.

sjogro (3454) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle gently shared at Maakuns. Clear golden with thin white head. Sweet malts, marzipan, banana candy, Sinterklaasschuimpjes, distant spicy. Big sweet, under medium bitter. Heavy body, alcoholic and sweet. Low carbonation. Sweet banana candy finish. Quite shallow in the aroma department and why so strong?
