3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Colour was dark auburn, small tanned head which didn’t last long although some lacing was retained. Aroma was yeast, a hint of cranberry and liquorice. Tasted cranberry, carrot and berries, yeast strain seemed to be the same as other Van Steenberge beers. Well carbonated, slightly thick body, smooth. Overall hid the booze well, which is always a plus point, nice beer to accompany a heavy meal.

33cl bottle.(Labelled as Berkel Dubbel)

Aroma: Sweet candy sugars
Taste: Sweet candy sugars , malts,hint of coffee and caramel in the back.
(Haagse hopjes style.) Cloying sweetness.
