GSAP (734) - - JAN 27, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 Onmiskenbaar fris en fruit in het aroma, doordrenkt met citrus, licht kruidige van hooi en basilicum. De smaak doet er niet voor onder met dezelfde tonen, maar de nasmaak is lichtbitter zonder breedte of diepte. Stijve doch bruisende kop op licht oranje. #2 aroma van zoete merengue. Smaak fris kruidig, heftig koolzuur. Rating hetzelfde.

A blond beer with thick foam. Taste of grains, bread and and citrus. I find theres a lack of colour in the taste but the beer drinks down quite quickly and is refreshing / asks for more. There is a lack of complexity / a lack of mystery to the beer and quite unbalanced.

Draft. Coasters. Aroma of candi sugar and light phenols. Some fruity esters asbit warms. Clear gold. No head. Tatse is mostly phenolic pepper and a light subtle honey malt note. Decent but kind of bland.

Bottle from Pezinsk pivn pumpa. Oh yes, this will chop your head of easily. Classic Belgian strong ale just as I like it. I wonder how this taste typical for bb is actually called.

19Oracolo78 (179) - ITALY - MAR 2, 2017
Birra dal colore dorato. Schiuma bianca, pannosa e moderatamente persistente. Allolfatto sentori fruttati, frutta candita e mashmallow. Al palato corpo medio con note dolci, di caramella gommosa alla fragola, frutta candita. Birra interessante soprattutto per il suo elevato tenore alcolico che non si sente per niente.

Bush_Docta (230) - - FEB 24, 2017
Golden, slightly hazy, with a thick, lasting head and nice lacing. The aroma is white fruits (banana, apricot), Belgian yeast, clove, orange zest. The taste is very citrusy, quite dry, some alcohol with a medium earthy, grassy bitterness. The beer has too much acidity and it lacks complexity I expect from Belgian ales.
