Bière dorée au nez épicé. En bouche elle est épicée et alcoolisée. Un classique des bière belge. Bonne bière.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy honey amber colour brew. 3 finger long-lasting white head. It is clearly seen how lots of minute bubble streams are spouting from bottom of the glass. Aroma: loads of ripe apricots, orange zest, caraway, coriander, clove, soapy phenols. Flavor is intense fruity spiciness, dried apricots, citrus peel, lots of clove again. Low alcohol warmth. Dry & very spicy aftertaste. (OMG! So much zest and clove again!) That goes without saying, we’re a dealing with a solid Belgian guy, but I cannot name it a supreme BSA for it’s so damn spicy. It’s like a heavywheight witbier-y motherfcuker. Overall, that’s a pleasant experiense.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2017 (From the keg) Pours a hazy straw-yellow, with fine carbonation, and a dense white head. This beer has a hop-heavy aroma, with lots of candied lemon peel. This is balanced by sweet caster-sugar malts, and hints of fresh bread and cereal. The beer quickly takes on a highly vinous quality: hints of oak-aged brandy and apricot kernel develop into tart grape skins, green apple, and juniper berry. The finish is dry, becoming increasingly tart, leaving a pleasant sour fuzziness on the tongue.
A very pleasant, smooth beer, which makes easy drinking.

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow to light amber. Aroma is ripe bananas, raisins and pineapple with light caramel malts lurking. Taste is quite sweet with a long, boozy bitter finish. Strong flavoured strong beer.
