330 ml bottle into signature chalice, best before 11/21/2013. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to small cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, apple, pear, pepper, clove, light bread, grass, floral earthiness, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters. Taste of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, pepper, clove, bread, honey, grass, candi sugar, floral, earth, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, clove, pepper, bread, floral, grass, honey, earth, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly slick, crisp, and prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a moderate warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong pale ale. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

This is the same as the blonde. It smells like alcohol, it tastes like alcohol and not much else. No liquid bread feeling, no fruits or spices. Pours into a chalice. Some head that dissipates. Low carbonation. Looks between golden yellow and orange whiskey, see through. It has a tiny aroma of pears. It taste like hard liquor, bitter, cough syrup not in a good way. At room temp it smells and tastes more like hard liquor. This is not a beer

33cl bottle (17/11/2015) into a flute. Clear straw color, some bubbling, big head with good retention and heavy lacing, leaves a one cm head. Smell is fruity with yeast and spice, slightly tangy. Sweet first taste, followed by a peppery spiciness, finishing with a dry citrusy hop bitterness with pepper. No hint of alcohol. Light body with a light creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Overall a fresh tasting, drinkable beer. Really light feel for a 9,5% beer. Would have again.

You know, I really wish I had better access to Belgian ales that were actually made in Belgium. I hardly drink any compared to what I used to.

Pours somewhat clouded. Thin white head. Tastes quite sweet; very much so, in fact. Though it seems to be less so as the beer warms; or maybe my palate is more used to it. Mild fruits. Touch of hop spices. A nice Belgian ale.
