2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn. Pours dark coppery brown with a mahogany hue. Head light beige, small. Nose kind of indistinctly fruity, putrid red berries and apples, malty, dank sourness. Taste is plain bad... grainy malts, rust, putrid apples, light caramelly sweetness, whereas the sourness is not much pronounced... aftertaste is just awful... metallic, medicinal dryness, woody... Palate near sticky, carbonation average, body light. Ugh.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 01/11/2014 from tap @ Koppenberg Cross.
Ruby-brown colour with small fast dissapearing head. Smell : malty, some coffee. Taste is malty, caramel, light coffee, light bitternes. Had it at itís best, perfect on occasions like this : in a tent at a sports event. Compared to other (old) brown of the same region it could be called rather weak, but is should be compared with "Dubbel" and than you can say it has a lot of taste for that alcohol volume when itís at itís best. Iíve had it a bit too sweet at other times

330ml bottle (Wines of Galilee, Tallinn)
Initially a fairly pleasant sweet berry and malty aroma, has some nice hints of a sour red, but alas that fades quickly, and it becomes sweet and sticky, a little bit corny. Deep rad, brief frothy beige head. Sticky-to-slick palate, too sweet. Ugh, metal in the taste. Eww, yikes, thatís awful. Corny sweet finish. Nasty chemical bitterness too. Poor belgian, really poor red.

Had this a while back in a restaurant in Ghent, 25/?33cl bottle 12/2013. Fruit-caramel sweet and cloying dubbel interpretation of the style, providing little or no acidic/lactic alleviation to its unfocused, near-cloying yeast profile and offering no complexity at all, let alone any wood notes. Over saturated supermarket plum juice, syrop de LiŤge over table beer. Overall very unfocused, with an almost Piedboeuf-like dull malt sweetness. I was done with this bottle after two sips - testifies that big thumbs down drawing in the travelogue.
