3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Apparently made for the Heeren van Liedekercke but tasted at Zythos Bierfestival 2005. I must have received the bottom of the bottle, as it had an ochre-hued brown colour with full milky cloudiness, not very pleasant to look at; beige, thin head. Fruity, sweet aroma of pear, chocolade, ginger; fruity, sweet and very yeasty taste with a bit of toasted bitterness and spicy hops in the finish, ending dry. Should re-rate this from a fresh bottle some day.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of caramel, spices, sweet. Taste is underwhelming, overbalanced on the alcohol. More of the same with some raisins. So-so beer.
