3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gushing. Brown colour, clear, but there’s lots of yeast, quite nice creamy head. Very high carbonation. Aroma: biscuits, caramel, bread, some wionous notes, yeasts, spices, clove, toast, green apple, alcohol after warming. Full body, lots of sweetnes, but there’s also some fruity sourness. Lots of yeast in flavour, some clove, ester fruits. Low bitterness, in the end some earthy notes and alcohol (nice covered when cold, aleter becoming annoying).

Taste is very sweet sugar and caramel, very light roast, lots of apple peel, fruity esters, some spice and yeast, bit bready finish, some light herbal bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick ivory top with chunks and bits floating in brown coca-cola-ish world. Comes across as boiled apple juice, some roast, rhubarb, sweetness though no added sugar. Tastes as tad bitter preserved apple juice (or perhaps prune juice), roast on the palate and rather low alc. Taste does not evolve into layers but stays consistent. Overall good sticky sugarfree beer.

Brown color with tan head. Aroma is caramel and brown sugar, very belgian. Taste is also caramel and brown sugar, but nicely balanced. A nice winter brew, albeit very sweet. High but fine-bubbled carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A spicy Belgian strong as you would expect it, but with a good quality. Fine but heavily carbonized, making it surprisingly well-drinkable.
