3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Bottle at home. Amber-brown colour, a bit darker as "palm". Aroma’s of dark fruits, sourness, bread, and something unpleasant, a bit like metal.Light beige head, very big, holds ok. Looks good for me. The taste is better then the smell. A bit sweet, soft dark fruits. Not to bitter aftertaste. Misses maybe some character, something extra, but not bad at all. Drinks very smooth.
Edit: Also tasted as "drongens plezierke" : Hops and cola at the aroma it seems. The unpleasant metallic smell is not present here. Beer is a bit watery.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to the bosses, BBD may 2007. Alroudn rating: This is one of the most refreshing new beers iv had in a while, in terms of a beer thats just unique. Its like someones made a flemish sour but with rochefort 6, but perhaps lacking the berry fruits. The acidity however it gets in there, makes it massivly drinkable, theres a cranbery sauce like dry woody punch with the darker malt and candy suagr all blending well to make somethign that i can only relate to the likes of dirty horse(but not as good). Excellent beer, id really really like to try this again.
