simontomlinson (38) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Frothy white head stayed on a translucent dark lemon coloured body. Yeast & banana aroma. Tickly on the tongue, feels light and fresh. Quite bitter tasting with zesty citrus, yeast, hints of caramel but reasonably sour on the back. *Very good - Worth trying*

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. BB 20.11.2017. Jumps out upon opening. Pours clear initially but cloudy darkish golden in the second pour. Head’s massive, off-white, strong scattered lace. Pleasant aroma of grassy, citrus peel hoppiness, apple juice or cider, Belgian yeast. Tastes malty sweetish and appley sour, with grassy hoppy finish. A bit sticky on the palate, light to medium body, fine moderately active carbonation. Alcohol’s quite well hidden when cold, but starts to show inelegantly when it warms up. Overall still pretty nice, unpretentious and easy-going. Certainly not among the best strong Belgians, a bit too unrefined and harsh for that, but perfectly drinkable.

phfyysik (887) - Tartu, ESTONIA - SEP 27, 2016
Pours golden with high white foam. Aroma is bitter, yeast, grapefruit, grass, vomit. Taste is grapefruit, some bitterness, some sourness, light grass, grainy, yeast, light sweet, lemon pie, sour candies. Nice beer!

Robeperse (70) - - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle .0.33. Colore biondo torbido. Al naso aroma floreale di zagare per questa Strong Ale belga. Al gusto crosta di pane e di miele d’arancia. Nel finale si sente l’amaro dei luppoli senza essere eccessivo. Retrogusto lungo ben equilibrato, l’alcool si sente solo nel finale.

Maracuja05 (820) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
[backlog] 11-08-15 / bottle at Citadel Namur in Belgium. Strong malt, some caramel, yeast notes. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.75/5

gyhallmanti (315) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear golden colour with a huge frothy white head which slowly diminishes and leaves lacing. Lively carbonation on glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus, light caramel. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, soft acidic with a soft bitter finish. Notes of yeast, spices, light citrus, vinous sourness. Texture is watery, medium bodied with lively carbonation.

L_Lovecraft (315) - - AUG 21, 2016
Yeast, some caramel, golden/amber with a quite persistant white head, medium body, too carbonated for me, and a bit watery...there is many strong ale better then this.

martpez (130) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
The alcohol comes through strongly in this one with a refreshing frutiness coming through. Its bitter at the end without much depth. Some citrus peel flavour which ends with a dry hop finish. Its pretty decent, but not outstanding. If im drinking something as strong as this I want something a little bit better to savoir.

ardeo (222) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Déjà bue à de nombreuses reprises mais jamais testée. Couleur peu attrayante mais belle mousse avec grosses bulles persistantes. Au nez les arômes de houblon abondent ! Dommage que je ne sois pas capable de les distinguer et les identifier tous (5 dit l’étiquette). Et en bouche, ils vous submergent et composent une palette des amèrs de bon aloi. Il faut aimer le houblon et l’amertume et pas spécialement les sucres ...alors, vous aimerez cette HOPus one !
