(on bottle) These flemish ale in thier small bottle are so cuddly; you wanna put it in your pocket for while. A very deep color of wet oak, absolutely no acidicy or sourness and therefor a tad to much to the flat side, this sweet, honeysmelling ale will have a hard time going in to my pocket angain.

this dark brown beer, has a very sweet nose, taste like a spoon of honey, but the aftertaste is rather dry.
It’s nice but not the best beer i’ve ever came across.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a dark red beer with a huge head with pretty good retention. Oak really hits you when you small this beer. Taste is very refreshing with a hint of sweet cheery which is attributable to the oak. Finish is a bit dry and watery which stop this beer from being as good as the Rodenbach. Still a nice example of the style.

Pours deep burgundy. Tiny tan head. Sweet strawberry toasted nose. Raspberry tart. Smooth. Deep fruity and sweet balanced with decent carbonation and just enough bitter to soak it up. Peppery sugar. Herbal and late earth and lemon. Sweet finish. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel and brown sugar aroma, cloudy burgundy, small toffee head. Quite a bitter taste, and a malty aftertaste. Light bodied, bitter. Good, but didn't fit the style.
