Bottle. Way overcaronated. The beer came gushing out after I opened it. Lost about 1/3 of the beer. Candy sugar, Belgium yeast with some grassy hops. Kind of basement flavor. Above average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Lidl Wrekenton. Hazy golden coloured with a large rocky white head of foam. It has a sweet herbal fruity and grassy flavour followed by a spicy, earthy, warming fruity and biscuit-pine finish. Very good.

This one is bizarre. Brown sugar notes and some Belgian yeast spice, then a weird herbal flavor that I can't quite place, maybe some mint and anise or something like that. Slight chemical notes as well. No flavors that I immediately identify as hops, but I'm guessing that's where the herbal notes are from. Not great.

Bottle at home. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, hops. Taste is medium sweet, lightly bitter, belgian yeast, hoppy finish.

Bottle, 330 ml. Pours light amber/yellow with a a lot of soapy off-white head. Fairly thick lacing and a small number of small carb bubbles are visible. Fresh and piney on the nose, caramel malt underneath. Quite herbal and pungent from he hops. Slightly woody. Bit of a soapy note develops as it warms. Taste is sweet and sharp up front, with lots of citrus and some blood orange. Bitter herbal notes take over after this with a significant alcohol taste coming in at the dry, mildly bitter finish. Aftertaste of light cereal and biter herbs. A bit astringent. Body is medium, texture is thick and oily, carbonation is light. Not bad but a bit of a chore to finish.

Slightly disappointing, if I’m honest. Hoppy yes, but very woody, and not in the good, piney way. Kinda tastes like a Belgian brew with sawdust thrown in. Perhaps I had a bad batch. Wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t finish the bottle, but I wouldn’t repeat, I don’t think.

Brodzislaw (495) - POLAND - NOV 24, 2017
Kolor złoty, lekko zamglony. Piana jasna, początkowo obfita, zwarta, opadła z czasem do minimalnej warstwy. Aromat niezbyt intensywny słodowy, estrowy/owocowy z dodatkiem nut korzennych i winnych oraz drożdżowe. Smak typowo belgijski. Słodowe nuty: zboże, chleb, biszkopt, karmel plus nuty przyprawowe – korzenne, finisz kwaskowy. Goryczka średnia, żywiczno-ziołowa. Alkohol objawia się poprzez rozgrzewanie i szczypanie w otworze gębowym. Nic szczególnego, po prostu solidne mocne belgijskie piwo.

Desfortunadamente, me tocó una mala botella. Mucho aroma y sabor a cebolla. Una pena.

Well well well. Someone has Belgian evening tonight. Yeasty aroma, classic belgian ale. Taste is not as intense as expected for this voltage. Actually the body is rather empty, okay maybe closer to medium, but still not storytelling. Drinkable, but far from great.

Botella. Nice golden colour, deep, small but steady-ish white head, ok lacing. Sweet bit fruity hoppy aroma with some alcohol, some malt. Flavour is sweet with fruity bit hops, malt, and alcohol.
