2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too sweet of a beer for me. It has more of a dark copper colour rather then red. Seems to be carbonated well, yet the head is rather small and quickly dissipates. Some tastes that i thought would bother me more are some sweetness, caramel, dried apricot, orange peel, since i dislike caramel and orange taste in beers. Taste is surprisingly light and fresh all things considered.
F: big, tan, average retention.
C: dark amber, hazy.
A: malty, nutty, caramel, bread, light red fruits.
T: malty, vaguely nutty, caramel, brown sugar, light fruity, honey, more on the sweet side and lack some more bitterness to be more balanced but may be it was the aim, medium to full body, soft carbonation, enjoyed, 33cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven.

Ambrata e schiumosa, aroma e gusto maltati e caramellati con un finale discretamente luppolato. Corpo medio-robusto con note di alcool, forse è la più "maltosa" del trio... Discreta. jamaty (2257) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar anaranajado. Dos dedos de espuma. Olor dulzoncillo. Sabor diferente, muy marcado sabor a naranja, y bizcocho... Final amargo. Cansa un poco, pero no esta mal. rdixon77 (3033) - Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2015
Old rating. Amber colored. Caramel, spice, light sour, some maltiness. Not bad at all. cattaneopapa (419) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
33cl bottle from LCBO in Greektown, Toronto, ON. 7% alc.vol. Pours a clear reddish, deep amber colour with a small lasting film-like head. Traditional Belgian Ale aroma with a whiff of caramel and banana. Taste matches the aroma with a crisp beginning and a clean hoppy finish. I was expecting worse based on the ratebeer numbers. This strong ale is arguably as good as any other big name golden ale. (Duvel, Delirium, etc.) Hammy78 (975) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle in gift pack from the LCBO. Pours true copper colour, fluffy white head that recedes to some clumps and a sheet of foam, loads of lacing. Nose is sweet caramel malt, a touch of spice. Tastes sweet, a little bitterness that lingers for a bit, caramel is very present. Probably my favourite of the three in the gift pack.
