At first it smells of old hops, some cardboard is present but shortly the Belgian fruitiness (with banana and peach dominance) kicks in with some nice spicy scents and takes over the unwanted aromas. As it warms, more and more floral aromas come to front. Very nice and complex ride through the aromas IMHO.
The taste is rather on the sweet, biscuity and malty side of things though the sweetness is nicely countered with carbonation. The boozy finish could be more delicate, but it’s a Belgian beer thing I guess...

0.33 bottle @ home
Cloudy, gold color with a small, white head. Aroma of yeasts, spices, and delicate medicine. Taste is sweet, yeasty, spicy, hops play second fiddle at best. Medium, creamy, average. Finish is longish, hops can finally be felt here. Overall not too bad, but the alcohol is definitely too strong and somewhat incongruous - not well settled with the beer.

Color ámbar, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). No aconsejo echar el último tercio de la botella, pues la cerveza puede convertirse en algo parecido a un pantano. Carbonatación alta visualmente, un tubo de burbujas muy activo. Textura oleosa y ligeramente chispeante. Tiene un aroma extraño, mezcla de mucha levadura, dulzor (en nariz recuerda incluso a miel), toques herbales y florales y lúpulo rancio o viejo. En boca sorprende, de nuevo, ese dulzor que se capta en aroma. Bastante malta caramelizada y azúcar. Reminiscencias florales y herbales, levadura presente como en aroma. Final astringente y ligeramente alcohólico. No creo que se corresponda con sus casi 11% pero desde luego uno puede saber que está ante una cerveza de al menos 8%. Postgusto a levadura, herbal, floral. Extraña y nada desdeñable, pero me cuesta beber más de media botella, no saco demasiado disfrute de ella. Me gustaba más cuando empecé a beber cerveza hará cosa de año y poco.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 Muy buen aroma , color intenso y limpio , dulce y licorosa , en el primer sorbo , muy desequilibrada al final , sabor persisten , amargor leve , buena persistencia de espuma . Si hubiese sido un poco más equilibrada , sería casi perfecta !!

Aroma of european hops. Taste is sweet and hoppy with a strong alcohol character and moderate bitterness.

3.2
Demens (443) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 9, 2017
0,33l bottle. Clear golden colour with disappearing fluffy white head. Aroma: Floral, dough with medicine notes. Taste: Sweet fruity (honey) start with a sourish, light bitter mouthfeel. Lacks the wished hoppy caracter. Medium/full body with fizzy carbonation. Long, sour/bitter finish. The bitter tone comes too latley.

GemmeDeReve (119) - FRANCE - JUL 7, 2017
Bière blonde cuivrée trouble avec légère mousse blanche. Une nez sur le coté herbeux. Un goût un peu acide, mais qui ne reste pas sur le palais, le houblon est présent, rien à dire, une bonne biere

simontomlinson (374) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2017
Huge fluffy, bubbly, pure white head stayed well on a hazy gold coloured, active body. Big aroma of Belgian yeast, banana, citrus & spices. Medium bodied, airy on the palate & a long, sharp prickly back. Sweet citrus, orange, coriander, yeast, hops & back of bitter citrus, grapefruit & very spicy.
