COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What a fun blonde beer this is. The nose is deliciously malty. The overall flavour is fruity, with hints of sweetness and a warm alcohol glow, which tapers off into a slightly bitter finish. We launched this classic beer in 1983, making it our oldest high-fermentation beer, which is re-fermented in the bottle.

Sampled 12/20/2008. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 33cl stubby bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet with orange and floral hops. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. Lots of bright yeasts and esters. The hops are floral and slightly spicy. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. A very drinkable, yet kind of run of the mill, Belgian Strong Ale; which is NOT a bad thing in my opinion. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle from Bottleworks in Seattle, WA--Bubbly copper-body with a thick dirty white head. Creamy saccharine nose. Nutty, mildly floral. Creamy all the way through. Not a lot of bite in the finish but extremely drinkable and flavorful.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2008
I cannot say that I found deep complexity here or any particular flavor that will stay with me the rest of my life, but I rather liked the mouthfeel and the softness of this beer. Nothing at all objectionable. In fact, the whole experience was actually quite nice, really.

dwyerpg (5951) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Not much to the aroma. This has a decent spicy fluffiness to it, a smooth finish. This is decent enough, but not great

Strykzone (7193) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Honey color and aroma. Light yellow hued head has decent retention. Again, honey in the flavor along with some floral notes. A bit of yeast. Pepper spice makes a late appearance. Feel is smooth and nicely carbonated. Listed ABV seemed higher than my bottle.

A Ronnie beer. Looks good, nice straw colour white head is ok but dies quite quickly. Not much on the nose, palate is slightly sweet & malty with a clean citrus edge. Nice brew.Trying hard not to make comparisons with Duvel!

Yellow color with large long lasting white head. Sweet creamy flavor - quite complex to the heavy side.
