Beer bottle (25cl), tasted in 2000.
Appearance: luminous blond colour, the foam quickly disappear
Smell: alcoholic power dominates flavours
Taste and mouthfeel: fineness of malts and its bitterness, aiming at length on the palate and sprawl
Drinkability: beer too strong

Oh my god is this a hard beer to drink. Basically it has all the fixings of a decent Belgian: wheat, banana, cloves, lemon and some malt. But it goes rapidly downhill from there. Basically, the best way I can put it is pour a small glass of an ok Belgian, pour a tablespoon of sugar in it, and then pour a shot of cheap vodka in it. Pretty much sums up what is going on in this beer. Overly sweet and super boozey, sticky and hard to drink. I'm glad I got it because this beer had always made me curious, but my curiosity has been piqued.

It's a lot of marketing; trust me I have a lot of experience with American Malt Beers...this is a French equivalent of a 40oz.

I will give it credit for a slightly better taste for it's %13 alcohol content. Most American 40s top out around %8. However, the price makes this slight advantage negligible.

If you are a an aficionado of high percentage beers try it once and you'll see why you won't bother trying it again.
