22 oz bottle served in a goblet.
The body is clear, bright, orange-amber and is topped by a decent head.
Aroma: sweet and clean; rather like some barleywines.

O: a Belgian Strong Ale leaning towards an Amer. Strong. SpringsLicker (3638) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Deep coppery gold body under a tall white head.
Sweet candy malt aroma with a bit of pine resin.

750 ml bottle pours an amber color with a small white head. Aromas of sweet malt, belgian yeast. Medium bodied with a slightly boozy finish, very nice. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Rated on notes from a tasting on 2 Feb 2014 -- I gave this beer a 4.0 out of 5.0, but I honestly don’t remember the qualities. Must have been good enough.

22 oz. bottle shared by Phatdog1. Orange color with fast diminishing fizzy head. Aroma is zesty Belgian esters and floral hops. roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2014
The flavor is just ok. Belgian yeast upfront with a sweet grain body. Very sweet transitions into some bitter floral hops in the finish. Bitterness lingers slightly. Pine resin is here and really is out of place. Light alcohol kick is here in the backend as well. Maybe a bit of age would help? I enjoy the style as a whole but this doesn’t do it for me. Maybe in another scenario this would fare better.
Pours clear amber with medium tan head out of bottle. Aroma honey, hops, citrus, and malt. Sweet flavor with a hint of hops. Good beer but was hoping for a little more hops.

Bottle. Moderate grain, grass and lemon for the malt and hops, musty basement for the yeast, with subtle hints of date, honey and nutmeg. Head is large, frothy, slightly off-white with heavy thick lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear, light amber/orange. Flavor starts moderate;y sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and faintly bitter. Palate is medium, between oily and creamy, with a soft carbonation, A citrus-y yet continuously sweet Belgian Strong Ale. It was tasty yet easy to drink on a hot day.

Sampled at ESBLS. Hazy golden with a blotchy white head. Some lacing. Dank describes this well. It is also funky. Yeast with fruit and soft malts. Interesting stuff. jcnielsen (3412) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Yeasty, Belgian, fruity aromas. Sweet, fruity flavors yet dry lingering finish. Alright.
