brekeriet (139) - - FEB 10, 2011
Aroma: yeast, alcohol. Unbalanced taste. Sweet, bitter, strong. Bad head. Not at all as hoppy as you think. Hop-it?

Echon (535) - rhus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2017
Amber. Discreet aroma with mild hops and yeasty spice. Powerful, sweetish taste, with light kandis sugar and phenolic spices. Quite bitter and warming finish. Medium body. Overall, a good pale strong ale. Rather powerful and bitter. The additional hops assert themselves in the finish, so this is not a belgian IPA in my opinion.

fkoolen (1185) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2017 Bottle at home. Cloudy light golden colour, creamy white head. Belgian yeasty, lightly floral and citrus hoppy, grainy dry malts, clean, boozy. High carbonation, medium body. More like a nice saison than an hops/hoppy ale.

prawlie (1583) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle from Londis in Goring. Bug spicy and farmyard aroma, and clearly heavily hopped. Peppery, bitter, but countered by good malt body. Very tasty crisp beer, and enjoyable. Id happily have one of these again.

rumore (491) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 27, 2017
From 33cl bottle. Pours slightly pale gold with white foam. Aroma is bready and citrus, probably a little spiced. Body is kinda dense. Taste is bitter, though with a clear underlying sweetness (honey). Finish is relatively long.

Cristobal37 (1127) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 25, 2017
Hazy honey gold with big white foam. Fresh floral and dry hop aroma. Honey, almond, booze flavors with minimal hops. Finish is honey and a tickle of hop. Forgettable belgian ale.

typical belgian strong ale with a solid taste and pleasant aftertaste. reasonable mouthfeel.

rferrey (127) - Huelva, SPAIN - FEB 11, 2017
Rubia, turbia, algo de residuo, bastante espuma, alcohol bien integrado aunque se nota algo al final, mas amargor final que las tipicas belgian strong aunque el aroma lupulado lo echo en falta.

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 22, 2016
330ml bottle from Beer Square. Pours a densely hazy golden color with a huge white head that diminishes slowly and leaves a film. Aroma is spicy and boozy with some hoppy touches. Smells like a good full-fledged Tripel to me. A bit of grains, honey, grass, herbs, clove, orange peel and candy sugar. Alcohol quite evident already. Taste is sweet, powerful, with flavors of sweet grains, almonds, spices and candy sugar. Nice and fun. Body is big, succulent. The alcoholic presence is a bit excessive to my taste. Nevertheless its a fine hoppy/spicy Tripel.
