4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Not quite as good as the gran cru, but the flavors keep coming as the beer nears room tempurature. I LOVE the belgians.
Ruby brown color. Gurgling foamy head. Strong aroma of tangerines and tart green apples sifting through the olfactory senses. Smell of orange blossums pouring out of the glass like a mad scientist’s concoction. Delicate sweet malt and wild flower honey conjoined with citric hop flavors embrace the tongue. Lace slowly drools down the side of the glass rejoining the compact screen of bubbles floating on top of this malt elixer. Smell of Bayer’s children’s aspirin peering in. Wafts of raisins, plumbs, dates, and kiwi complement a subtle peppery mango flavor. Candy sweet taste left on the lips. Banana and nectarines in the nose and on the tongue as this nears room temp. Buttery walnut finish casually evolves into a citric sensation devoid of bitterness, leaving a soft warming alcohol sensation. WAY under-rated.

Pours dark red to deep brown, smell is very strong an fruity. Little head, although agressive when opened. Taste is very full, some sweet notes, little varbonation, excellentely balanced. An extroadanary beer!

Simply amazing beer - notes of treacle toffee (I would love to know how they get this flavour without using sugars)

Topper! Een lekker bier beetje zoete afdronk. Je proeft niet dat het 9% alcohol bevat. Drinkt makkelijk weg.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2004. From bottle. Cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma of clove, sugar, plums and berries / grapes. Creamy mouthfeel, vinous and sweet, frothy texture. Bananas, clove, bread, etc. 8/5/8/4/16, 4.1
2014, bottle from the brewery in Montignies-sur-Roc.
Overpowering anise and fennel seed aroma.
Hot alcohol combined with this anise note reminds of schnapps.
Pasty and yeasty in the mouth, full-bodied, absurdly sweet and just a tad sour.
