UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 330ml bottle from LCBO, Summerhill in Toronto, ON. 8.4% Alc./Vol. Pours a clear amber colour with a minimal lasting white head. Aroma is complex but candy and liquorice are pronounced. Whiff of hoppy aroma is present. Sweet candy flavor blends well with the traditional Belgian yeast and malts. Finishes off with a well balanced hoppy finish. Body is surprisingly light for a Belgian strong ale. Med - high carbonation.

Bottle in Tallin. Really quite good. Dominated by the rich fruity aromas, with the alcohol coming in a close second.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2008
Bottled. This amber beer tastes of cereal sweetness and bananas. Enjoyable enough on its own merits, but I tend to expect something more memorable if drinking something of this high an ABV.

A pretty nice amber-colored belgian ale with fruity and caramelly notes and a good hoppy finish. For what it costs though, I probably wont ever drink it again.

Very nice beer, was served in a pub in a Kwak glass (which looks like something from a lab)

I think I expected more. It was good and all but it didnt have any kick what so ever.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a light amber with a generous white head. Bold though bright malt nose up front. Also hints of smoke and armpit. The flavor is fairly sweet with some bread notes to it. Pretty crisp. A good beer.

jawlo (374) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Aromat: brzoskwinie, mid, karmel. Wygląd: barwa ciemno-miedziana, piana obfita, zdobi szkło. Smak: spora słodyczy, brzoskwinie i karmel, lekki alkohol. Tekstura: spora ciała, trochę zbyt niskie nasycenie. Oglne wrażenie: mocno słodowe i aromatyczne, dość pijalne, a przez to zabjcze, przydałoby się więcej nasycenie.

It had a silly sounding name; I was a dazed tourist in a French supermarket; I thought, "what the hell". Umm... Looks like a brown bitter. Smells of sickly malt loaf and liquidised puke. Tastes like varnish mixed with malty caramel. I assume the purpose of this drink is to get you drunk? I cant believe anyone would drink it for pleasure.
