Very nice Belgian ale. I had about six of them at de Boom in Alkmaar. You won’t say that there’s 7,5% in it. Sweet and spicy. The aftertaste is great too. Will drink this more often.

Roodbruin bier met stevig schuim. Smaak mis krachtig en zoet met iets van karamel en kersen.

Gangstergafje (593) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
The beer looks nice. The color of the brew is a reddish orange. It isn’t really amber colored, it’s to red for that. The beer is crystal clear. I can look through it like its water. Not a single bubble can be seen in the beer. The beer pours a small layer of slightly tinted foam. The foam collapses quickly, to leave almost nothing. The smell of the beer is lovely. It’s very fruity and has a good sweetness. I smell banana, raisins, almonds, some distinguished smokey touches, alcohol, all really nice rather warming aromas. The beer is perfect for the late fall and early winter. It’s warming aromas, with some autumn touches to it, with the raisins, some spices I smell. It’s lovely I think. The taste is also nice. It has all those things the smell has to, but it’s more blended together. In the smell al aromas are individually perceptible, but in the taste all flavor a come together in a homogeneous, warming rich and sweet taste with a nice bitter pinch. The finish starts with a little taste of metal. The finish is quite long and is filled with the raisins and almonds mostly. The palate of the beer is exceptionally good. The beer has a medium-strong body, with a fizzy carbonation. The texture is rather slick I think. A nice beer it is.

ALIBALI (356) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2016
Für ein Bier der Heineckengruppe mehr als solide. Mutet fasst ein bisschen quadrupelartig an. Allerdings hab ich dieses Bierchen zu etwas späteren Stunde vernascht, daher könnten die Sinne ein wenig betäubt gewesen sein. Aus der Flasche im Paradiso, Amsterdam beim fulminaten CRB Konzert. Ca.4 Euronen

Lucas28 (16) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 29, 2016
bottle 30 cl from supermarket. Winter beer from Brand breweries. Color: orange. Taste is nice and complex. The beer is nicely bitter and not sweet. Most seasonal beers are too sweet to my taste, but this one is not. So if you’re looking for a not sweet winter beer: This is the one.
