I'm going to rewiev this one side by side with the Satan Red, both poured in Orval Chalices and both classified as BSPA at 8.00% ABV. Here we go:

A: Pours clear golden with strong rich small bubbles. The tall head is crystal white and quite creamy. Rich lacings. Looks way better than the Red.

S: Yeast and spice, kind of acidic Semi-sweet malt. Fruity; mainly citric notes. Smell is stronger than in the red one.

T: Sour, yeast and spices. Sweetness, but rather mild, from the malt. Almost dry and acidic; green apples, citric notes. Much drier and more acidic than the red.

M: Aftertaste is very long and sour. Body is on the medium side and carbonation is low.

O: Nice and sour. It lacked a little complexity in the taste compared to the smell and look. Not bad but it would probably have gotten a better grade if not compared side by side with the more complex-tasting red one.

Thanks to NewBrewBB for the opportunity to try this beer. 750ml bottled served in a tulip. Pours an orange-gold hue with a hazy clarity. Head is one inch, bright white and eventually dissipates into a bubbly froth. Some textured swaths and slashes of lacing present during the tasting. Nose expresses candi sugar, lightly herbal/grassy notes and a suggestion of Belgian yeast. Taste is dull and herbal; almost a little vegetal. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a lively, almost coarse carbonation. Overall, not bad, but there are much better examples of the style out there.

Bought this one in Brussels. Tasted in Quebec, Canada.

The beer color is golden yellow with a nice white head that looks like a cloud. It sticks quite well to the glass. The aroma is delicate... I get some floral hops with some herbs and spices. Visually, this one is quite carbonated. Taste presents notes of fruits (mainly apple), with a dry finish. Its very dry. Warms due to the alcohol. Carbonation is noticed in the mouth too.

Very well balanced beer if you ask me. The bitterness is in perfect equilibrium with the sugar. Very good taste. This is an excellent beer. I would say its pretty awesome according to my taste.
