The aroma is that of floral and grass. It is golden in color with a full bodied white head. There is a pleasant taste that resembles grasses and wheat which is smooth considering the alcohol content of the brew. It was smooth going done with little bitterness.

vinivini (2046) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 27, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy amber. Small head. Aroma: nice esters on nose. Caramel. Medium body. The flavour is a celebration of esters including notes of prune, apple and pear. Delicious. Moderately boozy. Balancing bitterness. Thats fine. Very fine.

Une Satan de derrire les fagots, bire que jai toujours eu limpression de connatre avec son tiquette reconnaissable entre mille, de la part dune sympathique petite brasserie... Belle verse rousse/cuivre avec un beau collet de mousse blanche fine trs dense et des bulles qui montent par centaines... Le nez est sur lalcool, le caramel, les crales bien chaudes, la cassonade. Des armes typiques dune blonde forte, pas forcment base sur les houblons et le fruit. En bouche, on retrouve un alcool puissant avec ses 8% bien costauds qui ne relvent pas vraiment les saveurs et armes. Lamertume est l, discrte, toujours en arrire-bouche et laffut, la carbonatation est quant elle plutt bonne et vive, tandis que la texture est ronde avec un petite scheresse sur la fin. Le sucre est un poil trop prsent mon got. Les armes peinent merger mme si on dcle de la prune et de la noix, mais le fruit est vraiment limit. La longueur est intressante car les sucres et lalcool chargent bien la mule, donc les saveurs persistent vraiment. Cependant, a reste trs limit et assez peu expressif, hormis lamertume qui sexprime vraiment sur le final et apporte sa touche de fraicheur. Au moins on termine sur une bonne impression ! Une blonde forte sympathique mais trop classique et qui ne dcolle jamais vraiment... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Hndlerlieferung). Rotbraun im Glas mit schner Schaumkrone. Typisch belgisch stark, Alkohol kommt spt, aber dann...

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- bernsteinfarben mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach roten Beeren, Karamell, eine leichte Schrfe und Alkohol - die Carbonisierung ist mir entschieden zu hoch - der Antrunk hlt zuerst einmal eine wrzige Koriandernote parat - durch die hohe Rezenz prickelt das Ganze aber auch etwas unangenehm auf der Zunge - in der Mitte drngt sich dann der Alkohol zu aufdringlich in den Vordergrund - der Abgang fgt dann noch eine leicht seifige Bitterkeit hinzu Fazit: Die hohe Carbonisierung und der zu durchdringende Alkoholgehalt werten das Bier doch ziemlich ab

lokis333 (477) - Birai, LITHUANIA - SEP 10, 2016
Hazy deep red color with tan foam. Aromas sweet of malts, bubblegum with notes of dried fruits. (Hard to smell in busy kitchen) Palate, medium body with smooth texture with noticable carbonation, leaving boozy sweet finish. Taste is overwhelming boozy! folowed by bubblegum and candy taste and well boozy! Overall, bit too much booze for me could do with some taste and complexity.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Rating #1767 - 2015.06.26 - Bottle at Belgian Beer Cafe YEG. Clear amber pour with a giant head with decent retention. Aroma is meyer lemon/tangerine, coriander, mild spicy note, and of course, booze. Taste is definitely full bodied, to the point of off-balance with alcohol being the primary note in the finish.
