Notes: Colour and sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.
Scent: Slightly malty, a nice touch of alcohol, spicy.
Flavour: Feels like the sound shot of alcohol is igniting the mouth. In reality the tongue and palate are warmed. The taste is characterized by its roundness. The aftertaste is strong, long-lasting and dry bitter.

LOOK: Blonde Orange, Coarse head about 2 fingers
SMELL: Malt and Alcohol. Nothing too complex.
TASTE: Surprisingly light and mellow. Strawberry and Banana as other reviews have noted. Very pleasant, especially considering the ABV.
FEEL: Heavily carbonated but not too thick.
OVERALL: I would drink this from the tap if I could. A perfect beer for any occasion.

Have had it many times, but this is the first time to review it here.
Had to pour it in a classic Belgium goblet
Its lighter in color that I remember it.
Lots of carbonation

Definitely getting the strawberry banana on the taste.
This beer is an amazing example of a quality Belgium beer. You cannot go wrong picking up one of these

750ml corked and caged with a 2.20 date printed on the cork. Opened 1-22-22.
Big pop upon uncorking. 2 finger white head with a fine bead and lengthy retention. Yellow gold with a bit of a chill haze and tons of active carbonation. Apricot, floral, and marmalade in an appealing perfume. Yeasty, spicy notes as the beer warms, some orange/citrus and a grassy hop late in the flavor. Light body, high carbonation. Some heat in a finish that is spicy, initially lightly sweet but ultimately finishes dry. Very Good to Outstanding.

Pours an almost clear golden color with a small fluffy head and a lot of lacing.

Smells of bread and spice.

Tastes of bready yeast, sweet malt, bananas and cloves with a slightly bitter finish with some alcohol warmth.

Medium light body with medium carbonation. Brut mouthfeel.

Excellent, subtle & complex!

Pours a clear golden color with a medium top off white head that dissolves quickly.
Aroma is of yeast, banana, orange zeest, cloves, pepper, biscuits and honey.
The taste is sweet and dry with nice fruity and spicy notes allong with some light malt tones in the background. Alcohol is nicely hidden in the flavour. The finish has some slight bitterness and leaves a pretty decent aftertaste. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth with a medium carbonation and a medium body.
A really tasty belgian strong ale.

Like Agassi swinging a racket - waboom! To hell with the Nadal’s and Federers. This is old school goodness! Like Kate Moss on the cat walk, gimme gimme! Ok! Raul is gone!
