UPDATED: NOV 12, 2004 Dark brown blond hue. Light brown head. Pillowy and puffy.... carbonated aroma... quite sweet and malty you can taste the alcohol a little. Full palate of flavour light honey and earl grey tea touches.... reminds me of tea at my grandmas twenty years ago..... not as complex as I once thought but ithe last time I had this was 1995.....

A complex beer: both sour and sweet all at the same time. Thick chocolate malts combine to create a nice, dark brew that’s worth contemplating. The alcohol is well-hidden behind all that malt.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Rerate: since the Affligem brewery has been bought by Heineken, the beer has become more clear in color, and more sweet in taste. It just lacks the body it used to have. Really too bad. Original rate: 4.2. Beautfiul cloudy redbrown color, big lasting brown head. Aroma of slightly roasted malts, some caramel, fruity of dried fruit like prune, bit chocolate. Sweet taste, malty, slightly alcoholic. Nice full palate.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2004 Strong sweet aroma. Good , beautifull lasting head. Dark brown colour. Sweet, fruity taste. Soft, smooth palate. Rerate: Not too balanced in taste, quite overwhelming malts.

Panzuriel (1282) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Not the best Belgian that I have ever had, but still very good. Nice smooth texture, good mouthfeel. Deep amber-red with a nice head. Good flavor walking the line between tartness and fruity hints. Very good.
