One of my favourite beers ever. Looks great with a decorated glass, golden colour and big fluffy head that simply does not disappear. Smells of hops, at least two; one citrus and one spicy. Some yeasty sweetness as well. Maybe malts, but hops dominate. Taste is fresh with hops, fruits, citrus and some bread. Bitterness swells towards the aftertaste that ends dry and hoppy. Impressive that the hops are so distinguishable, given the high volume of alcohol (that was completely hidden by the way). What a delight.
Yeast and light hops, has a sharp chemical hops smell, but the taste: at first it taste like a light hoppy beer, but whit complexity in the aftertaste.
It is some what uni form in its bitterness.
But I am gonna go out on limb here and say, that if you like bitter brews and Belgian ales then your gonna like this one as well.
citrus, golden color, liquid is hazy, medium sweetness, pretty bitter. Yeast flavors as well. Jabic (735) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 3, 2017
Ar: Honey, generic syrup, and sherry; a little sugar. Ap: Golden and clear but with chunky particulates; medium-small off-white head with low retention, leaving a thick ring and sudsy most-cover. T: Clean alcohol and sherry; medium sweetness; some toasty malt and dark honey; high bitterness, tons of dried-flower hoppiness; bitters from the alcohol; the finish is bitterness. P: Medium body with very high carbonation; medium-dry finish. O: The oxidation has done a bit of a number on this one; seems like it could be nice fresh. msbernac (2920) - Krakow, POLAND - OCT 23, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Birra dal colore dorato. Schiuma bianca fine e persistente. Al palato corpo medio, buona carbonatazione, con note floreali, speziate e mielose. Nel finale equilibrata tra dolce e amaro. Una buona birra che si lascia bere nonostante la sua gradazione alcolica. krtgrtncrw (10) - MÃ¼nster, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2017

Clear dark amber beer with nice big head. Aroma is enjoyable yeast, fruits and spicy. Taste is a little boozy, otherwise good light sweet and bitter. Full body. Overall nice warming strong beer. Bacchus66 (1006) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2017
330ml bottle @ home. Clear copper pour (other than the suspended yeast flakes - oops) with a thin off white head that fades away to nothing. Bug boozy nose with yeast, malt, bourbon notes. Flavors are sweet malt, barrel, burnt sugar, caramel, decent hops presence though less than expected (old bottle). Long warming finish. mkel07 (6549) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2017
200517. Bottle from Cellarbrations in Fitzroy. Pre- GABS beer – not that I needed it mind you, but glad that I had it. This is one of the best and strongest Belgian beers that I have had in a long time. Vibrant egg yolk colour with a soft beige head. Alcohol fumes come off the glass and assault the nose leaving you desperately wanting to take the first sip. Big and creamy in the mouth with a hit of alcohol that could easily knock you around. Treat this beer with the respect that it deserves.

Bière blonde trouble sans mousse, une odeur fruitée, très légère carbonation, au goût, un fort goût d’alcool, pas trop d’amertume, le goût d’alcool reste vraiment présent au palais, ça cache bcp les différentes saveurs. Richardvv94 (121) - Valthe, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2017
Gedronken met Peter’s verjaardag, ruikt en smaakt hoppig, teveel nabezinksel dus meer gist smaak, verder kruidig, bitter en grassmaak die niet heel aangenaam is
