PanMarek (301) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Sweet dried fruit and comparatively mild caramel malt in the nose. Dark red pour with thick white foam. The caramel malt dominate the taste but the finish is somewhat dry with a strong alcohol aspect. It is a little more mild than most Belgian ales.

Gehbe (297) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - OCT 5, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Pours a lovely clear amber with a big beige head, some lacing. Aroma of caramel, zest, spice, baguette crust, pine nuts, wood, some earthy/smoky/yeasty notes. Tastes medium sweet, some light sourness from carbonation backing it up, light grapefruitty bitterness in aftertaste. Medium body, high carbonation, not as sticky as expected. Excellent but a tad too sweet.

datrael (295) - Krakw, POLAND - JUL 10, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2016 Solidny belgian strong ale - słodowy, zbożowy, dość słodki, przyjemnie rozgrzewający ze słodowo, fenolowym aromatem. Całkiem pijalny, idealnie wpisuje się w belgijską klasykę. Niezłe piwo

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Delicious, Served in a black 25 oz bottle. This belgian brew pours a dark amber, the head is a thin lace of tan that sticks to the glass. The smell is orange peels, vanilla, and honey. As I let this beer warm up a little from the fridge more flavors and aromas began to come out. The taste of this beer is smoothe and creamy. It tastes of honey, fruit (banana and grapes), it is sweet but not overwhelming. I definatly recommend this beer. It would pair well with a grilled steak to contrast some of the fruity flavors, as well as a bananas foster to help bring out some of the banana and caramel flavors in the beer.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Bottle. Pours with large light brown head and dark amber color for the body. Body is hazy and lacing is strong. Aromas of flowers, bananas, cherry, and roasted malts. Creamy texture with a nice palate that results in a rather long duration. Sticky finish with a very pleasing aftertaste. Tastes of bananas, cherry, and hints of raisin. Much better bottle than I had the last time I rated this beer, although I had aged this bottle around 2 years. Highly recommend buying a few and putting them away!
