A: Clear Golden Straw, Mild White Head, Minimal Lacing
S: Honey, Belgian Wheat and Sugars
T: Honey....seriously, it tasted exactly like a Honey Mead
M: Mild Carbonation, Light Bodied, Sweet Dry Mouth
Overall, this "Strong Ale" was practically a Mead. It still had a good taste about it, but not a belgian strong ale. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 29, 2013

16oz. poured into a Tripel Karmeliet tulip.
A - Pours a hazed apricot with a fluffy white head that holds great retention. Nice horizontal lacing left behind.
S - Tropical fruit esters, pineapple, green apple skins, green mango, orange, peach, cotton candy, banana taffy, grassy hops, sweet malt in the background.
T - Very fruity, pineapple, papaya, lemon honey, biscuit malt resides underneath a grassy hops. Earthy strawberries come out as it warms.
M - Medium body, medium carbonation, slick feel, finishes semi dry.
The best aroma I’ve come across from A BSPA. It couldn’t be more perfect. The flavors come across the palate very straightforward but very tasty.
One of the best examples of the style I’ve come across.
This beer drinks like a 7.00ABV. Highly recommended.

December 2011. Bottle. Pear or apple aromas. Hazy straw yellow with a white head. Spice, malt and fruity flavors. Dry and bitter finish. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a slight fruity aroma. A fermented apple smell. Taste is light and crisp for a belgian strong ale. A decent beer for the style, but not a favorite. The bottle is very cool with the resealable top. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Gotta love the bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/amber with a white head. Aromas of yeast, dried fruit, candy sugar, and malt. Nice light mouthfeel while maintaining a wonderful amount of flavor and complexity. Very easy to drink. The 10% abv is well hidden too.

Ceramic type bottle with grolsch style lid. Pours a cloudy yellow/tan color with a very large, lasting head and sticky lacing.
Aroma is fruity, spicy, with clove and banana, citrus, a little hops and some biscuit malt.
Flavor is tasty, it’s got tons of spiciness, with clove, coriander, pepper notes, banana and bubblegum, and some funk.
Body is pretty thick with plenty of carbonation and slightly noticeable EtOH.
Overall it’s tasty. A nice Belgian Strong Pale that fits the style nicely.
