Bottle 65cl, a cloudy copper beer. Nose is intense on belgian yeast ripped fruits. Aroma is very sweet on ripped fruits, quince, belgian yeast, peppery hops, quite sharp and unbalanced, vinous, champagne notes, old orange, candied fruits, astringent finish.

Cloudy orange, frothy white head. Aroma of peaches, orange zest, coriander, and tart banana. Peppery on the tongue initially, yielding to spicy peach and orange....the sweetness was perfectly balanced with hop appearances. AndySnow (8001) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2015

Flavour: Fruit, floral, spices, alcohol, alcohol, hops.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-hazy bronzed orange color with a slim little white head that dissipated pretty quickly. Lacing runs about lightly in a semi-filmy nice looking way.
The smell had a sweet grassy to citrusy burst running into some light floral hops. A light breadiness shows with some Belgian sugars to balance out the aroma.
The taste was moderately sweet with the Belgian sugars, grassiness, floral qualities and citrusy hops to run slightly into the flavor. The aftertaste is semi-floral with sweet grassiness and Belgian sugars. The finish is dry and semi-sweet.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light. There’s a nice dryness along my tongue.
Overall, I’d say this was a nice Belgian Strong ale that I would have again. Malin_aiisa (1220) - SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2015

Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, wooden and mildly toffeeish notes as well. Flavour is fruity, floral, wooden and some mild toffeeish and caramelly notes to it. Also alcohol shows a bit in the flavour.
Pours a bright golden color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, fruit, and some yeast. Hoppy flavor with a malty yeasty fruity follow through... finol (3465) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
I’m a huge fan of hoppy Belgians, but this doesn’t really float my boat.
Taste like a light barley wine, ie malty but no apparent alcohol, red berries but no hops...
