Light clear golden colour with a nice head that leaves a layer of froth.

Lots of spices (cloves), lemon and bready smells. Bit of booze also.

Taste has a tangy lemon hit with some spices which leads to some brown sugar and dark fruits. Bready malts to finish it off.

A nice enjoyable beer. Would drink again for sure

Belgian golden strong ale -brewed with 5 different hop varietals for complex flavor and refined body. Strong, bitter, blonde. The created for the brewers' wedding celebration. So tasty!

From large corked bottle, clear light gold with good retention on creamy white head. Smell is dry and grassy, some fruity cherries, a bit spicy with some yeasty character over a firm malt base. Taste is fruity but also distinctly yeasty and mild kilned Belgian malts, toasty with some dry bitterness. Hops aren't very lively, grassy and earthy. Not bad but not an outstandingly complex beer.

Nice color, a bit golden and amber, very hazy. Good ammount of head that stays for a long time.

The smell is subtle. Bit of lemon, brown sugar and hop aroma's.

Lots of carbon initialy, followed by a hoppy biterness which moves on to caramelized sugar. Some sweet notes (lime?), spices, and some licorice as well. Overall very bitter, a tad to much for my liking. It is a bit creamy at first, but followed by a more dry finish. The alcohol is well hidden.

This is not a beer for me, but still I can apreciate the experience. If you like bitter, this might be the beer for you.
