cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Smells like dark fruit, alcohol and a bit of a funk. It has a brick-red color with a tan head that’s pretty dense. It has a sweet-sour flavor, like a Flanders red. It has a very lively mouthfeel that finishes fairly clean. It’s delicious!

bdunhill (254) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2015
This dark ale pours with a great frothy head and a perfect dark brown colour. It has a sweet aroma but a bitter taste to the tongue and a lingering pleasent after taste.

chinchill (3119) - South Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2015
750ml bottle from Total Wine with a cage and cork seal. Solid pop of the cork, which probably hit the ceiling even though I thought I was holding it adequately. No foaming, but the aroma and flavor suggest a moderate infection. The aroma, in particular, has some of the floral, barnyard, and basement aromas from bacteria or, less likely, wild yeast. The bottle has a 11/13 date on the bottom and its been properly stored. Searching, I immediately found a report of another bad bottle, so quality control may be an issue. O: very disappointed.

Pyrmir (4279) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2015
Bottled during Brussels vacation. Amber with off white head. Aroma malty, caramel, light burnt sugar and yeast. Taste is sweet and malty, caramel, yeast, sugars, low bitterness and some fruit.

Shark_Pants (468) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2015
Deep ruby colour with large fluffy beige head that lingers significantly. Candi sugar, glacé cherries and belgian yeast in the aroma. The taste is very sweet, with plums, cherries, raisins, toffee and bready notes toward the finish. Very prickly on the tongue but full bodied and sticky. This one is too all over the place for me and lacks balance. Certainly not at all undrinkable but somewhat disappointing.

thirstyrabbit (1460) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper body, medium head. Aroma has yeast, caramel and dried fruit. Mostly red fruits. Also some hairspray. High carbonation. Taste has more dried fruit and yeast. Pretty simple. Finish is more fruity with dates and raisins. A standard dark Belgian, not very much distinguishing features. Carbonation is too high, makes me burp a lot. Not very smooth. With so many better options available, I will probably not have this one again.
