De belgiuminabox. Nada más abrirla, por el aroma, se reconoce que será una Belgian strong superior a la media, con más presencia de malta de lo habitual. Resulta fácil de beber a pesar de su graduación, y en ningún momento cansa

Vintage 2017.
Deep golden, bright appearance, with a beautiful off-white foam.
Intense smell, fruit, peach, some ripe melon. Light alcohol. Then floral notes, and some pungent spiciness, something like anise.
Full taste, malty notes, candy sugar, fruit, peach again, yeast, bread crust. Again some fresh spiciness, mint.
Very belgian, good, even if a bit heavy in the taste.
Full body, the aftertaste starts with fruit (dehydrated), then again the finish spiciness, with a relatively dry end.

this is ancient now, the bottle literally says brewed in 2012, which, i guess by now is old, and frankly, it probably shouldnt still be this sweet, like if its this old the yeast should have been viable enough to take care of all this sugar in all these years, but here we are, another lap around the sun and another sedimented, reasonably priced, fully dusty, real belgian beer goes forgotten, its sad, but its true, and this one has been decaying for about a decade. its good and its terrible, caustically alcoholic but also mature in a belgian yeast sense, estery, white wine and booze burn meets honey and sap, like clear and from a tree, but old enough where it turns into that gum, sweet and earthy, but concentrated and intense but also near flavorless in the same instant. curiously hoppy still, uncomfortably so, but it works. some flecks in this, huge and thick headed, bubbly and old school green bottle belgiany, pear and apple and girl, frustrating and satiating, another lap! drinks a little tough at temperature, but this brewery should inspire a blind bottle buy at this point, and im real glad i did it... again...

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; 2017 vintage bottling, batch No. 2. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden amber/light orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, apricot, melon, red apple, white grape, peppercorn, and lightly toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, honey, nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, peach, pear, apricot, melon, red apple, white grape, peppercorn, and lightly toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, honey, nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate yeast spiciness and herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange, peach, pear, apricot, melon, red apple, white grape, peppercorn, honey, biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitter/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium-plus carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and slightly syrupy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 10% after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong pale ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malt, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV. Perfectly balanced yeast and malt flavors, with very well rounded complexities. Never overly sweet or heavy feeling for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Yellow, clear.
Head white, thick, big.
The smell is primarily a village, a little malt, in the distance like the smell of burning grass.
The taste was the first to voice comes intense hop bitterness, then malts. Rulles Grande 10 is lightly nor acid. I was a little disappointed, I expected some madness and here ...

A: clear, amber colored beer with creamier veiled head that was thinner, great lacing
S: medium nose with candi sugar and EtOH qualities
T: strong malt flavor, EtOH and nice balance of hops reminded me a tripel with more body
M: strong EtOH but well-attenuated, a bit hot in mouthfeel, great smoothness that belies its EtOH

Bottle share at CBC.

A: Light golden hazy color with a huge white head.
S: Smells like grass, wheat, lemon, orange. A bit boozy as well.
T: Lots of sweet breadiness, citrus, and lots of yeastiness. Some melon as well.
M: Medium bodied with average carbonation. Semi-dry, lemony finish. Felt pretty boozy at the end though.
O: Very sweet with the traditional Belgian yeastiness. Not my favorite style but it's solid.

A - fully hazy swampy yellow, expected tower of head dissipated to one finger leaving random wispy lacing
S - grainy, metallic, bubble gum, pears, light pepper, mild sour citrus
T - spicy start with minerally metallic notes, fruity and leafy, grains, some alcohol heat to finish
M - fairly light, big carbonation, dry and slightly puckering, somewhat spicy hot finish
O - definitely a good example of the style, the hoppiness is fairly mellow but works well with the Belgian flavours, alcohol is still a little spicy, i have a bottle put aside from the summer, be interested to see how it fares in a year or two

750ml bottle poured into tulip 12/9/12 2012 vintage

A hazy pale golden orange with a massive three fingers of well sustained foam that leaves some spider web lacing followed by a few large random patches

S fruity tropical notes with lots of Belgian yeast, brewers candy and spice, still quite hoppy with earthy, leafy and some citric hops, I'm liking the smell and would never believe its 10%

T sweet marmalade with and rind on top of what I smell, faint booze and just a small step back from the smell, spicy and earthy and still quite nice

M fairly thick and well carbonated, silky almost syrupy at first and once you move it around in your mouth it creams up. very faint heat like what you would expect in something a fair bit weaker, its barely noticeable

O this one has potential to hurt you, I forgot how strong it was until my head reminded me. a nice mellow Belgian that's pretty well rounded

not sure if I'd want to lay this one down as the hop profiles good and the booze is already quite mellow. pretty nice stuff and its priced well here in my little beer heaven of Alberta

Poured into a tulip. The color is slightly hazy orange with a large foamy head. There is nice sticky lacing.

The aroma has nice sweet honey malt. There is a touch of bubblegum here as well. The hops are understated in the aroma, perhaps lending a slight vegetal note.

The taste has a lot of sweet malt flavor with graham cracker and honey notes. There is a little bit of pepperyness towards the finish.

This is full bodied. There is a nice full carbonation. This isn't bad, but it isn't really great either.

Poured into a tulip. This one pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with about an inch of fluffy white head. Nice sticky lace on this one.

Hints of spice and caramel with bubblegum sweetness and a bit of a bitter hop finish. Notes of ripe fruit like apples and pears. Bitter hops on the pallet with some notes of spice and pears. Has a bit of a sweet edge to it.

The body is medium with coarse carbonation. Overall this one is pretty solid. Nice hop profile on this. A nice pretty easy drinking brew here.
