UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 Solidny belgian strong ale - słodowy, zbożowy, dość słodki, przyjemnie rozgrzewający ze słodowo, fenolowym aromatem. Całkiem pijalny, idealnie wpisuje się w belgijską klasykę. Niezłe piwo

Amber color clear beer, white small bubbles head (not too much and dont last too long, but Ive used trappist glass, pretty wide). Aroma: sweet belgian fruits esters (peach, banana), caramel, biscuit, slightly alcoholy. Taste: light to medium sweet, biscuity/caramely flavours and belgian esters again. Palate: medium body, dry, alcoholy (its nice, warming up alcohol, but strongly present). Low carbonation. Overall: good beer, too much alcohol on the finish. Without it, it would be extremely drinkable.

Piwko w butelce 330 ml. Klasyka gatunku, jedno z najsłynniejszych piw świata, belgijski ale. Mocne piwo, więc nie ma co przesadzać z ilością, nuty karmelowe, orzechowe. Kolor bursztynowy. Generalnie - solidny, zacny Belg.

(Draft. 03/2006) Sweet, fruity aromas of cookie dough. Deep, amber with nice, foamy, white head. Leaves good lace on the glass. Flavor of cake with a hint of roastiness and just a bit of sharp crystal malt bite. Quite warming although the alcohol is masked nicely. Medium bodied. Quite dry for the sweet tastes of malt and ethanol.

Sweet, but delicious. I really loved the way that it had just the slightest nose of alcohol. That along with some apples and maybe a little banana. Tastes like it smells. Id drink it more often if I could.

Bottle 33cl. It pours a beautiful red/brown clear colour, with a good size head, drink this in the proper glass and it looks even better. Aroma is of malts, raisins and apple, very complex, but can be defined pretty well if you just take your time. Taste is also very good and complex, could detect raisins, spices and a slight trace of grapefruit. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

Dry cheesy yeast with some slight sweet notes and a taste with a kind of flatness throughout. Medium head with bubbly consistancy.

Nice amber color. Very yeasty and sweet. Lacked good flavor components. I found this beer to be bland.
