(Bottle 33 cl) Well, the alcohol alone calls for this to be labelled a Belgian strong, doesn’t it? Reddish brown beer with a fine head and the usual Boelens murkiness. Nice, scented nose. Very sweet, full body with a lot of caramel in the flavours. Some spiciness although I believe none are added. Another great Boelens beer. 300499

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at DHVL. Brown colour with lasting beige head. It’s ok, some ok malt in mouth. From the others at the table who had it I was expecting a bit more, but as I drank it, I couldn’t really discern anything other than it was a pretty decent malty Belgian ale. Which it is.
