mkel07 (6575) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2009
330ml bottle. Pale light honey colour with a crisp loose white head. Strong bold aroma with a sweet note that teases the nose. Strong flavour that hits the back of your throat. Very flavoursome.

mar (5470) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle best before 4/05 thanks to thirdeye11. Cloudy light amber, cream head. Yeast, dried apples and other fruits. Nice on the palate, big flavors of yeast and dried fruits, alcoholic finish.

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Bottle. 11.2 oz. Pours hazy brown with a heavy, tall off-white head. Aroma of bread, spice, pumpkin, hops, barley, and notes of tangy citrus fruits. Mild body but not week. Mouthfeel is smooth and full. Finishes nicely and hides the alcohol perfectly. Good Belgian strong.

3.4
pivo (2689) - GERMANY - SEP 19, 2002
Real doughy nose with hints of yeast. Hazy orange-gold color. Quick diminishing head. Fruity, melon-like; spicey, nutmeg; slight bitter end. Thin-ish with a round mouth feel. Good balance but not overwhelmingly good.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2003
Wonderful Belgian aroma - spices, fresh bread, cookie dough. Pours an orange-yellow, cloudy with a nice head. Palate is lively with a thick body. Can really taste the alcohol. Finish is a bit flat. Overall a satisfying beer worth trying.

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2004
(Bottled) Hazy golden color with a big head. Sweetish, yeasty and fruity aroma with berries. Sweet, yeasty berry flavor. Medium-bodied, somewhat carbonated, dryish palate. The initial impression is very good, but after the first few sips, the flavor gets a bit boring. A vey nice brew, but still below average as a Belgian strong ale.

3.4
rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2005
Bottled. Hazy golden. Warming, sweetish aroma from exotic fruits and spices. Flavour is more toned down, with a sweetish malt presence and not much else. Still an elegant brew.

3.4
Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
Robe blonde voilée aux reflets orangés et surmontée d’une mousse généreuse. Arômes d’épices, de malt, de levure. Corps bien présent.

3.4
oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with sediments floating around. Big white creamy head. Fruity and wheaty aroma. Fruity wheaty and a bit alcohol in flavour. Some soapy hints also noteable occasionally. Hides ABV well, though you note there is some.

3.4
vanvenlo (1941) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2006
21 Mar 2006 - Sweet apricot hoppy malt aroma. Light yellow colour with some yeast suspension. Big hoppy, light sweet, a touch of aniseed, amongst other spices. Sweet lingering hoppy finish.
