GSAP (688) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Smaak is kersen en appel sapje, met een fijne bitter in de nasmaak. Nasmaak had wel iets dikker gemogen, drinkt nu te makkelijk weg. Aroma heeft ook veel weg van vruchtensap, en iets van cruesli. Paar belletjes zorgen voor paar schuim-streepjes.

Beer style that tends to provide great products of a great delicacy. But this is too flat, too much like a normal crevesa. Too little gas and subtlety.

Rating #1112, fra The Bottle Shop i Brügge

Mahognibrun øl med luftigt skum der forsvinder lidt for hurtigt. Let ristet duft af klassisk tehus, men noget utydelig duft... Syrlig tehus-agtig smag med appelsin, blommer og hindbær, men derefter en utroligt kraftig metallisk bismag, der komplet ødelægger oplevelsen. Den lader dog til at være overdøvet, så snart man tager tår nummer to, så det er til at håndtere. Jeg bliver desværre nødt til at give den en lavere karakter, p.g.a. dette førstehåndsindtryk. Fylde og tyngde som forventet - hverken tynd eller tyk. Det er da en ganske fin øl, men et stykke fra den belgiske topklasse.

BobyFischer (295) - FRANCE - MAR 24, 2016
Beau mariage entre les saveurs d’une brune douce et ronde et le tranchant fruité et acidulé des levures spontanées aux délicats parfum et goûts de cerise et framboise.

koshack (1303) - Gdañsk, POLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Aromat słaby. Trochę owocowy, nuta słodkawa, lekko kwaskowe. W smaku słodko-kwaskowe. Jak na leżakowanie w dębowych beczkach to słabo. Jest jakaś nuta, ale nie do końca beczka. Dość ciekawe, ale nie powala.

Disappointing. Tasteless. May be "special" for people used to Heineken or Maes but this is a mediocre beer, period. (bought 4-pack in bottle at Delhaize in Belgium).

PietS (149) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
Heavy coffee-like scent, but the taste is quite the opposite: sour sweet, like cherry or raspberry. It’s not too sweet though and the beer taste is still present. It is also a bit watery though.

Dermi (1087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Bruges. Roodbruin bier op basis van lambiek. 5 %. 33 cl, bottled. Pours clear ruby, two finger fizzy head. Aroma: Malt, yeast. Cherries, wood. Taste: Some acidity, quite sweet. Some bitterness. Malt in flavour, also some berries and wood. Notes of spices. Palate: Light-medium body, a bit oily. Feels quite sweet and artificial. Decent. (31.8.2015)

Scopey (12225) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle consumed at home. It pours clear deep brown with a thick beige head. The nose is earthy, sweet, tangy, cherry cola, Dr Pepper, caramel, sweet dried fruits, damp leaves and wood. The taste is bitter - sweet, tangy, dark fruits, candy, Dr Pepper, caramel, damp wood, brown bread, fruit cake, candy and some vinous notes with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting, but a bit too sweet overall.
Earlier Rating: 5/5/2013 Total Score: 3
Tap at Timmermans during TdG, 2013. It pours deep red with a thick beige head. The nose is brown bread, Christmas pudding, date, raisin and brown sugar. The taste is dark fruit, berry, caramel, cola, light tanginess and some metallic notes with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Unfortunately it’s not that sour. Not a whole lot to it really, but pretty smooth and easy drinking. Ok.

Buona birra ma non la berrei una seconda volta.. Sentori brettati ma sapore un po’ troppo stucchevole.
