Bottled 25cl. It pours a apricot colored beer with a pink head. The nose is of blackcurrant, strawberries, plastic, burnt rubber and vinegar. Overly sweet taste. Cloying. Sour and very artificial. Huge amounts of burnt plastic and condoms?! showing up. Unpleasant finish. Really poor. Thanks a lot bov for this beer.

slightly hazy reddish colour, solid and foamy bright pinkish head; aroma of strawberries and cheap vinegar; sweet and creamy mouthfeel; juicy and dusty sweetish finish of artificial red fruits and glucose - urgh! what a shame!

Red coloured beer with some average carbonation and an average white head. Sweet, artificial sweet fruity strawberry aroma. Medium palate. Finish is over-sweet, candy and fruity. Totally candy-like. Very medium fruitbeer. Don’t see why a decent Belgian brewery has to brew this kind of S*.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alla spina @ a pizzeria in Novara. Amber with an off white head. Yeast and malt dominate but there’s some sweet caramel, hops and metallic notes underneath. Nothing particularly special but after a week of drinking Raffo, Moretti and various random Italian beers, this was like the best beer ever.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Alla spina al Bar Berto di Piazza delle Erbe; colore rosso chiaro slavato, con schiuma beige chiara. Aroma pressoché inesistente, sapore sconcertante; le caratteristiche della dubbel sono una reminiscenza lontana nascoste sotto la maltosità stucchevole e metallica di quella che potrebbe essere una Vienna scrausa. D’altra parte l’etilico si fa sentire a modo suo. Terribile, perniciosa.

On tap at the Pianeta Birra, Rimini, Italy.
brewed specially for italian market. Pours a nice clear amber colour with firm pale beige head and fresh malty nose. The aroma is maly and slight hoppy with notes of caramel and fruit, but the end is short and quite weak. Pity, beginning was very promising.
