2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Pours a very murky dark brown almost opaque colour and has a huge creamy beige head. Aroma is alcohol, acidic fruits and some toffee. Flavour is toffee, malts and alcohol. Slight metallicness in the finish. Quite thin and watery palate. The alcohol in aroma and flavour pretty much ruins it.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle conditioned. Severe and unpleasant carbonation. Needs conditioning to become drinkable. And after that it reveals that itís a rather metallic and unpleasant beer. Crude unfermented sugar sweetness, some rough alcohol, and a foul bitterness in the finish. About as bad as a beer can get and still remain just about drinkable. There seems to be little to commend this to anyone. It has no character, it is crude, it is rough, it is overcarbonated, it is badly balanced, the beer moves from sugar sweetness to a rough, unfragrant hop pellet bitterness in an abrupt manner. This is foul, foul, foul. At least global pale lagers are drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught at The Beer Weekend, Brussels. Reddish brown with an off white head that left a nice lacing, about the only thing nice about it. Smell of banana and a taste like banana nut bread. Watery and thin, a disappointment from my once favorite brewery. Should have held on to Straffe Hendrik.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at brewery. Clear redish-brown body, medium off-white head with great lacing. Aroma of fudge caramel. Very malty, caramel, sugary, not very pleasant sweet/bitter finish. Tastes like a bad Straffe Hendrik Brune. More boring than bad. Looks nice like the touristy part of Brugge where it is brewed. But really it is as boring as the rest of Brugge.
