Another beauty from Belgium! I’m really going to miss being in Europe when I have to return to the US next year. Everything about this brew is top notch, a little sweeter than you average strong ale, but still a knockout!

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 6x13. Not a bad beer but Im not a honey fan. Luckyly, the honey isnt overwhelming and I could drink it without too much disgust.

Light orange with a little haze and a medium and fairly steady head of foam. Fresh smell of grass, yeast, honey and alcohol. Same flavours in the taste, with spiciness and malt as well. Nice sweet honey flavour in the finish and aftertaste, which lingers well. Well balanced, but it gets a bit bland after a while. The honey seems to give this beer a nice soothing mouth feel, as was to be expected ;).

This beer is brewed with honey and it shows it face. The taste is much less fruity than some other strong Belgian pale ale. It's almost balanced but a bit overly sweet for my taste. It remains boozy

Clear golden sweet blonde, quite unusual.
Color is enticing, a nice clear gold that stands out.
Sweetness enough to cover the hops for those averse, with little maltiness behind the sweetness.
Little foam, dissipates quickly.
