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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
