Douberd (1702) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2014
Nicely shaped 330 ml bottle, sent free of charge with an order from belgiuminabox, thanks! Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 9.5% Pours deep red brown with quite clear body, tall froathy head, with low retention and light lacing left on the glass. Aroma of caramel, light vanilla, fruit cake, syrup, light nuts. Although smells very sweet there is something in there very inviting. Taste is sweet but certainly less than the aroma led you to believe. There is still the caramel, syrup, the fruit cake with dark and red fruits, a bit of yeast now too,the alcohol hides itself pretty well,some spices, plus some pleasant bitterness on the finish and on the aftertaste, with good duration too. Medium thin body, good carbonation, sticky palate. Overall a very good belgian ale.

couleur sombre avec bonne mousse. Nez fruité sucré, note caramel et malt. Gout cremeux de fruits secs, fuits (raisin) rouges, caramel doux et grillé. Bonne petite amertume, longue en bouche.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée foncée, mousse abondante, tenue moyenne. Arômes de pruneaux et fruits secs, alcool assez prononcé qui pique un peu. Carbonnation un peu faible. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

rikstar (557) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2014
0,33l beugel bij de slijterij in Opmeer vandaan. Kleur van het bier houdt het midden tussen Amber en robijnrood met een mooie fijne schuimkraag. Aangenaam aroma met chocolade, donker volkoren brood, gist en ook gedroogd fruit. Smaak is ook mooi complex begint vol zoet daarna een zuurtje als appelstroop met een mooie afdronk met gistbitter, hop en alcoholwarmte. Zeer aangenaam en complex bier, blij verrast!

Okay beer. Looks copper dark. No special mouthfeel. Tastes explodes at the aftertaste with hints of huney, sour, spice and alcohol.

Une belle découverte au Cambrinus de Bruges. Bière typiquement belge, bien équilibrée, tout ce qu'on aime.

CapFlu (4363) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
33cl bottle. Courtesy of Olivier. Overflowing frothy white head atop a deep brown colour. Malted fig aroma with a creamed, salted, red wine cask flavour. Mild palate, hides the alcohol well.

MarcoDL (1522) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Ordinary Belgian blond beer. Bit fruity, bit hoppy and quite sweet. Nice beer, but a little high on the CO2.
