3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served out of a can while watching the UEFA Euros tournament, poured into my Chimay goblet. Thin head which quickly dissipates into light film - does not seem highly carbonated. Color is slightly cloudy amber brown. Smell is crystal-sweet with only hints of the malty dough smell I was expecting. Taste is pleasant (without a doubt the tastiest canned beer I've had). First thing I noticed was the light mouthfeel and sweetness of the beer, which I wasn't expecting...and while this isn't a bad thing, it felt like the beer didn't have a lot of size to it. However, as I let it sit, I could taste the malty chewiness through the sugars, and it was delightful. Hints of caramel. And while I'm emphasizing how sweet the beer is, it's not overbearing. It's actually pretty damn good. Will have again, and would be nice with food.

12 oz. Draft at Rocket to Venus restaurant and again at Red Star Bar. A decent dubbel, typical look and pour, a hazy brown with a nice white head. Doughy bread taste a little less than I’m used to with a dubbel. It had a sweet malt fronted taste, brown sugar, with more of a bitter spice note, and the palate was lighter than expected.

Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the weekly Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a white head. Nose is some veggies with banana, sweet malt, and some brown sugar. Flavor is similar with veggies, banana, and sugar.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can. Smells like bananas, yeast, and a slight nutty aroma. Poured an amber color with a big off white head. Taste is a lot like the smell, kind of sweet and a slightly boozy burn to it. I recommend drinking this one as cold as possible because the taste really degrades as it gets warmer. Not a bad canned beer.

Bottle @ Wasana’s Winter Beer Tasting 2012! Thanks Jonas!!!
In the glass dark amber colored. Smells very yeasty, combined with a little hop aroma and citrus. Starts very yeasty, paired with fine malt flavor and a little citrussy hops. The middle part is also dominated by the yeast, along with some caramel and sugar. Goes into a yeasty-malty finish with nuances of aroma hops!

This beer is delicious, pours a dark brownish color with a very malty/sugary flavor. Very flavorful but still well balanced by hops.
