à la maison. Bière à fermentation haute de bonne facture, elle se distingue notamment par son côté âpre , sec , peu sucré. Très bien pour accompagné un repas. deepdrinker (314) - Leeds, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Golden hazy colour , floral aroma and a nice Belgium yeast flavour with a nice head jmgreenuk (10081) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 26, 2017
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy golden orange colour with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is Belgian yeast, light toffee caramel, floral hop. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a crisp fresh, malt, dry yeast, floral hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

From a 33cl bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head, staying thin until the end. Aroma is mostly malts. Flavors, of malts, hops, vanilla and spices. Balance of flavors is wonderful, a real ale. Medium to strong body, nice medium bitterness from the hops. Lovely long lasting flavors in mouth. simontomlinson (621) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Excellent, and highly recommended.

From Oct 2006 Piepenhenrich (1246) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Poured from a caged and corked 750ml bottle(room temp) a clear (with some yeast in suspension) light gold and a largish head of foam that settles down to a solid layer with lots of lacing. Also, the second pour produced a nice light gold..no...actually.. cloudy orange that looks even more appealing than the intial pour.
The smell is nice. I note yeast, sour fruit, cloves....pretty complex.
The taste, initially, is on the sweet malty side but that's followed, almost immediately, by hop bitterness that creates a really dry finish. In between the first taste and the finish, there are some nice fruity tones of apricot and plum along with some lemon citrus and yeast that I noted in the smell. I can *just* taste some of the clove that I noted in the smell as well but it is quite subdued. Yum. This is very very nice and the 8.5%abv doesn't come in to play at all in the taste for me.
Bottom line: I really like this Belgian Strong Pale Ale and would not hesitate to buy more. To me, this is a Belgian version of Russian River Damnation and that is *all* compliment, baby. :^)

First of all, I am a fan of this brewery. I tasted a few of the ales from their selection, and I am never disappointed. They make real neat and crisp ales. I bought this bottle (750 ml) from drankdozijn.nl. Appearance; light golden, slightly cloudy beer with a nice white head. Nose; not so much aroma releasing. A bit of alcohol and fresh hops, slightly light malty. Taste; peach, dried apricot, peppery yeast and hops which tingle on the tongue. Also the taste of alcohol, a bit boozy. Well balanced beer but the alcohol not so hidden. I enjoy it.
