Draught at Delirium Cafe on 25-Apr-2016. Clear golden amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet fruit and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Sweetish taste of molasses, orange peel and lemon citrus. Slightly bitter alcoholic finish. Not a bad Belgian strong ale.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a mostly lasting thin off white bubbly head. Aroma is of caramel, spice, orange, bread. Taste is of brown sugar, warm spices, hint of pepper, some bitterness and warming alcohol notes on the finish. Light oily mouthfeel, medium to hard carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 Good, nothing fancy though. The aroma is fruity but spiced. Has a well malted body with extra carbonation. Taste is bittersweet. Notes of cereal and citric fruit.

Good looking golden coloured beer. Clear appearance topped with white, big, frothy head. Lacing is not so sticky. Very fresh fruity aroma, mostly peaches maybe oranges. Light cereal, later some herbs appear. Well balanced rather dry taste. Medium bodied palate. Soft carbonated, bit spicy. Pleasant spicy, warming. Watery. Long dry finish. Delicious beer, but not do special. There are plenty of beers like this and much cheaper

Gangstergafje (889) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
The beer looks very good. There is a nice golden yellow color. The beer is a little hazy. A nice layer of white slightly rough foam is poured on top of the beer. The smell is nice. There is a sort of trippel bitter sweet aroma, that is in good balance. There is also that almondy smell of alcohol. There are some very fruity hop aromas, which are a nice touch. The smell is familiar, yet special. The taste is the same as the smell and extremely good. There are nice hop flavors. The taste is bittersweet anThe beer is very fruity. The palate is good. The texture is creamy and the carbonation is lively. This is a good beer, a world player.

WVHouseofBeer (1050) - West Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2016
A fairly run of the mill Belgian Strong Ale, which is to say, very good. Aromas and flavors of light fruit (apricot mostly), spices and a bit of funk. Body was a little too light. Certainly a respectable beer

bdleedahl (289) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 4, 2016
Cloudy golden colour with a large head due to the high carbonation levels. The citrus aroma is quite dominating and the beer is relatively bitter. Below average for the style for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
