Vargatul (139) - Bucharest, - NOV 9, 2012
o.33 L bottle. Golden colour, clear liquid with a long white and creamy head. Aroma has notes of peach, citrus, noble yeast, baked apples. Full body, good carbonation, bittersweet taste, long finish. The alcohol is hidden very well. Good!

RudiGR (100) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2017
Gekocht bij de Biertempel te Brugge tijdens het 7é bierfestival in 2014. De Boekanier produceert bij het uitschenken een wit-romig stabiel schuim in een grote hoeveelheid. De geur is moutig en zoetige alcohol. Weinig CO2 pareling te zien. De smaak is licht zoet en ook licht bitter, bij de nasmaak blijft alleen het bittere hangen. Deze duurt wat langer dan normaal en smaakt af en toe wat sterker. De alcohol voel je ook bij dit rond-volmondig bier. Het 11° alcohol volume laat zich op den duur sterk voelen, als je er 2 of 3 wil drinken dan doe je dat beter thuis.

GhostS (511) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 4, 2017
Aromă medie, cu mult malț, drojdii și tărie, cereale încolțite, puțin malț înăcrit. Gust cu tărie în prim plan, explozivă, puțin cam neplăcută, datorită și carbogazării destul de înalte, dar repede trece într-o ușoară dulceață, malț, ceva fructe fermentate și multe drojdii, ca apoi (tăria) să revină în postgust, ușor și plăcut. Bună, dar cam prea evident tare. În rest, o belgiană tare și nu prea sofisticată.

Piepenhenrich (1226) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Rather ridiculous label, but surprisingly well-crafted, complex and strong Ale very much to my liking.

Krásná zlatavá barva, chuť nasládlá, vůně lehce alkoholová, ovšem u tohoto piva to snad ani nevadilo. Alkohol zde příjemně hřeje a společně s vyladěnou chutí se snoubí v poměrně dobře pitelné pivo. Ale jedna třetinková láhev stačila až až (zvláště když jsem společně testoval tři takto silné piva najednou,... :D)

19Oracolo78 (225) - ITALY - MAR 1, 2017
Birra dal colore quasi ambrato. Schiuma fine e persistente. All’olfatto sentori fruttati di agrumi e frutta a pasta bianca, come pera e pesca bianca. Al palato corpo medio con note di miele e pesca bianca. Molto alcolica ma la sua alcolicità è ben camuffata. Una discreta birra, nonostante l’alcol si lascia bere, pericolosamente, con facilità.

2.8
herrklemann (444) - Graz, AUSTRIA - FEB 9, 2017
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma dominated by yeast, hints of fruit (banana, citrus, some berries, some wine even), something like gin botanicals, leather, cardboard, tobacco, booze. Taste is dominantly dry, with pearly sourness. Medium body, a bit syrupy, pearly carbonation. Dry, slightly sour finish with hints of tobacco.
While this is kind of overwhelming, nothing really stands out. It’s interesting, flashy even, but I won’t have another in a while.

2.7
sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - JAN 5, 2017
Colore dorato carico, schiuma scarso. Odore caramello, poco speziato, cereali, fruttato, erba, alcool. Corposa, liquorosa, dolce, poco frizzante. Non molto equilibrata, l’alcool è troppo presente.

3.3
mike_77 (7085) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2016
Clear golden colour with lasting head. Aroma and flavour are not particularly intense but certainly warming from the alcohol. Certainly sweet but still fairly drinkable.

3.1
Blastomorpha (125) - - MAY 15, 2016
Pours dark gold with a very nice white, compact head. But is it real gold what’s below? Unfortunatly no. I can’t find anything particular in the aroma, just a very little hint of citrus and some yeasts. Taste is better, but just because I love this kind of sweet beer. Sure not the best example of belgian strong ale, but enjoyable.
