From cask at Bree Louise. Pours hazy dark brown with a fully gone head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and caramelish. Sweet caramel flavoured. Fruity. Subdued bitter. Yeasty, acidic and fruity. Yet rather sweet. Phenolic finish.

Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours a cloudy, drab orange with a faint film for a head. Honey, sugar, sweet malts in the aroma, with some coriander and clover. Flavor is very sweet, with some caramel, more honey and white sugar, plenty of spices, and definite orange juice. Medium to full in body with soft carbonation. The finish is damn sweet, with more juicy orange, honey and spices. Some mild citrus rind and tang. Overall I like this beer a lot. It lacks the delicate nature of some trippels but the flavors here are robust and enjoyable. Good stuff.

Cask (Egham Beer Festival - Summer 2010) - Gold/amber with a slight haze. Tea and fruit in the aroma. Sweet taste with tea, malt and hops. A bit too sweet, but good to see them attempt such a style.

Cask at the Bree Louise. Orange. As soon as this glass was handed to me, I knew it wasnít good. The aroma is full of cloying spices, way way overdone. The esters are all over the place, and itís so sweet on the palate that itís almost undrinkable. I left the better part of my half-pint. This is not Belgian, this is bad. Sorry.

Cask (handpump) at Egham United Services Club Beer Festival on 19 August 2010. Murky orange appearance. No head. Lots of tart fruit and orange peel on the nose. A little spice and more oranges in the flavour. A bit sweet for my taste. Probably a bit sweet for authenticity too. Not one of my favourite Ascot beers on this showing but good to see them giving this a try.
