It smells as good as it looks, and it looks as good as it tastes.

It's a very fruity beer, I can sense very good hints of apple, and the alcohol content is very well hidden.

This is one of Sudbrack's best beers, IMHO, and I'd drink more of it, if it wasn't for the high alcohol content.

355 mL bottle, thanks Jon,

A: Pours burnt orange with a mild white head, average head retention, no lace.

S: Estery, pear and mandarin oranges, marmalade.

T: Tad boozy early on, but gives way to a spicy sweet orange flavour with apple and pear esters. Notes of pineapple abound, intermingling with the other flavours.

M: Medium-bodied, but heavy on the palate, crisp, a clean beer. Bit of a peppery sweet aftertaste, but mild.

D: Very solid and well made BSPA, better flavours than a lot of what comes out of Belgium. Good show.

355 ml bottle, exp. 12/2017, poured in a Duvel tulip. Amber and cloudy very, with low quantities of a beautiful white foam. Smell of sugar and some hidden spices, which show a bit more on mouth. Full body and nice to drink slowly, letting it warm so that its spiciness may match the high sweetness, showing then some fruitiness too.

A: Pours a Cloudy orange with a good head, but no much rentention, living a lace after sometime.

M: The aftertaste is very sweet with a little bitterness, the beer is very drinkable despite it's 8.5% ABV.

O: A good option of the belgian strong ale in Brazil, low price and good quality, I recommend this beer!

Slightly hazy golden amber color with a thin head with short retention
Pleasant aroma of red fruits, bread malt and later then banana. Hints of Belgian yeast and pine.
Incredible flavor of matured strawberries with notes of nutty malt, pears, oranges, oxidized apples and brown sugar. Hints of Belgian yeast and herbal and earthy hops. Dry aftertaste with a fruity lingering taste.
Medium body but almost liquorish with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv is a master of disguise here.
I don’t recall it to be so nice. It may be the first time I try this with just 5 months to expiration date; it looks like this is the magic number. Smooth like a Belgian Blond ale, flavorful without being overly sweet and with a muzzled powerful alcoholic punch. Recommended.

350ml bottle served in a Tulip glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a small bubbled white head. Minimal retention and few lacings left

S: Traditional Belgian yeasts with notes of honey and dark fruity esters (mainly plums). Notes of citrus orange. Sweet and bready. Candy sugar and caramel malts. A bit of alcohol in the very end

T: As the nose, sweet candy sugar upfront. Fruity esters. Belgian yeasts. Light hop bitterness by the style

M: Full molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Smooth. Sweet malty aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Very Belgian beer made in Brazil :)

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a tulip.

A - Cloudy golden amber colour. Minimal head.

S - Sweet malts. Bread and fruit at the same time.

T - Again as with the aroma - it's sweet malts most dominant here. Touch of mild fruit as well.

M - Smooth and creamy. Not much of an aftertaste but if there is it comes straight from sweet berries.

D - Simple belgian recipe executed with Brazilian flair!
