From bottle into tulip. Light Amber with a crisp white head and slight lacing. Cranberry aroma with a little tart cherry. Bitter cherry with slight orange, and malt. Fairly oily on the tongue but has enough carbonation to make it work. Overall a decent beer,

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a large, dense white head. Some sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma was bready with some fruity esters and a yeasty earthiness. Flavor was mild caramel and bread, some fruit (cherries and raisins), some yeast, mild bitterness. Mouthfeel was creamy. Alcohol was well hidden. NIce, but nothing terribly special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, orange to amber colour with a firm and slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet bready (cara-)malty aroma with notes of brioche, mildly fruity notes and a tinge of alcohol. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty and bready base with yeasty spice and moderately fruity notes; sweet malt-accented finish with shades of fruits and a shy level of bitterness. Not that Cru-ish. 10.I.11

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Slightly hazy amber colour with particles floating around, quite a big white foamy head as well. Had a bit of preassure, so it tried to avoid getting drunk, but I was faster this time (due to BBE date in 2009...). Aroma is toffee, mild alcohol, caramel malts, some yeast, and spices. Flavour is quite similar. Very nicely balaced. Long toffeeish and quite sweet malty aftertaste as well as some alcohol.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, BBE 09/2010) Big yeast flakes floating around amber beer, with a creamy head on top. Caramely toffee, yeast, faint glue notes in the aroma. Hops mostly gone, if there were any (I don’t mind). Lots of grainy malt, sweetish but lightly oxidized and tart, already feels aged a month after the BBE. Quite nice, actually, with a "real" Belgian Strong Ale and micro feel ŕ la Dolle Brouwers. Quite carbonated, though. 6346
