3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Utobeer. Once absconded with a Serafijn glass (naughty, naughty!) for a drunken thrill. This is my first chance to entertain the glass with the appropriate brew. Hazy dark orange in colour with thin dissipating head.
Strong nose of honey with toffee, orange, apricot and maple syrup creating a bit of confusion. Smells great and oddly familiar. The taste is even better. A bitter punch to the mouth is followed by sour citrus and raspberry...then comes the butter. Oh yeah. A light spiciness finishes it off nicely. Wow. A lot is going on in this beer. Definitely one of the most unique beers I’ve had to date.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Hazy amber, brief heas. Light phenolic aroma of pineappel and banana. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and notes of burnt malt. A middle-of-the-road Belgian ale that is solid but fails to make a lasting impression.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep red color with a huge, tight head. Aroma of sweetish-caramely malt with some burnedness, and some figs. A bit raw, rye-puddingy-malty, sweetish flavor with figs, berries, and hints of alcohol. Medium-bodied, somewhat foamy-carbonated palate. A bit watery considering the sweet maltiness. Clearly the best of the Serafijn range, though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, BBE August 2007 Clear, amber body. Off-white head. Uninteresting aroma: hops, soap, (hints of) alcohol. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish (upcoming finish). Somewhat astringent, didn’t find it pleasant. Not bad either. Very unbalanced.
