3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Initially pours a crystal clear gold with a huge firm white head, which leaves a truly awe inspiring degree of lacing. Later glasses are hazy, and then finally fully cloudy and without the initially brilliance, as the yeast at the bottom pours out. Nose of yeast, wheat, and hops, more than I would expect in a Belgian tripel or Belgian strong unless it came from California. Taste of, well, yeast, wheat, and enough hops to produce a smile without fighting with the Belgian strong type. Nice, works. Docked a point because, well, it’s easier to make a beer work this well with this much alcohol.
Belgian yeasts are very dominant in the aroma. Pretty bitter and a little bit sweet. Surprisingly light for its abv. In comparison to LA line-up, not very interesting. yoxik75 (103) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 19, 2017
Piana obfita ale brzydka i po chwili opada. Kolor jasny żółty mętny. Aromat ubogi, drożdżowy korzenny, owoce, brzoskwinie, minimalnie cytrusy. Smak zbożowy, słody, drożdże belgijskie dające ostre i szorstkie odczucie, przyprawowe. Są owoce z rodzaju tych świeżych, brzoskwinie, morele, cytrusy. Piwo ze średnią słodyczą pije się lekko, alkohol ułożony jedynie delikatnie przebija na finiszu, nagazowanie i goryczka wysoka. Piwo złożone, solidne, dobre bez zachwytów. sokuzs1 (1356) - POLAND - FEB 20, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2016 Very hazy and very nice deep yellow colored beer with lots if white head. Looks good. Spices (pepper, coriander) and fruits in the aroma (lemon, some banana, melon and peach). Intense, complex and interesting aroma. The taste has lots of sweetness and lots of spicy flavor notes (rosemary eg) and a very bitter (but not hop flavored) and tart finish that stays on the tongue for quite a while. The finish is a little too intense to create perfect balance I think, but otherwise really good tasting beer. VamboladeTolly (1975) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 26, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, Belgian yeast, fruit, grain, hops, citrus and spices.
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with slight yeast and with a medium white/off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, Belgian yeast and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with grain, hops, citrus and spices.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Great appearance, I always wonder how this brewery manages to get these blond beers so opaque. The aroma could have been less simple, but everything else is great.
Bottle (from beergium). Pours golden with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, spices, fruits, some malt. Flavor is sweet, spices, fruits, some citrus, malt, sugar, booze. Finish is dry bitter with lot of booze. Carbonation is rather high. Overall: drinkable, but very unrefined and very boozy. Not comparable to good Belgian Strong Ales in any way. It actually gets better when it warms up or when you get more drunk...shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2016
PS: Lost Abbey beer gets lower rating from me than from FatPhil?! Someone close the upside down gate quickly!
Bottle from 2015. Aroma is honey, booze, apples, candy, fruity. Taste is powerful, boozy, bit of a bitterness hit at the start but then a bit sweet, some cherry, quite lively. Nice.
