3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Authentic for the style; tangy, weird sour funkiness happening. All good but doesn’t have the intensity of say Rodenbach.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home. Deep brownish black pour, red glow, medium tanned head.
Aroma of fruits, yeast, some metal, plum and faint raisin.
Flavour is a weird sour sweetness of cherry with a nasty metallic sidenote.
No drain poor, but only just.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. A reddish brown ale with very low carbonation. Aroma is very near the "Duchesse de Bourgogne" but less sweet and less complex. Aroma is vinous, less sour, cherry like with wood taste and some burn alcohol notes. Not bad, well balanced, good cherry aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate. Bottle from I know not where.
Dark brown with a thin beige head. Very fruity, rather sweet and generally as the sour version without the sourness. Slight toast and earth in the finish. Drinkable but very dull.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours red/brown. All together a medium flemish brown ale, the sourness is there but not quite enough. I like it but it never really takes off.

Bottle, 33 cl. Dark brown beer with small beige head. Smell of roasted malts. Taste are also roasted malts, and caramel, also light sweet. Not especially a good beer, stuck in the averageness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle@Home. Aroma of cola, caramel, light malty and light lactic. Reddish brown, light brown head, good lace. Pretty sweet, light lactic, light bitter, strange flavours. They turned a nice traditional style into a main stream easy going beer. Highly drinkable but boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown to black coloured, minimal head. Sweet aroma, with roasted malt, but especially sweet. Palate is also sweet, also fruity taste (berries, krieken), slightly bitter, bitter sweet finish.
