3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled 0,75L.
Balmy and creamy foam, medium duration. Much dark orange color, little bubbly one. Complex aroma; must notes, much winy and flowery. Enough prickly taste though not excessive; notes of soft candy, sweet malty, elevated alcoholic perception. Much perfumed and vinous. Lightly dense and syrupy. With character.

Bottled. Aroma of nice strong hops and apple. Amber color, beige head, few lace. Light sweet, hoppy, peppery, bit of iron. Sparkling, medium body, light dry. Complex, well hopped but still it gave me an amateuristic feeling.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy amber color with sparkling carbonation and a large, firm and lacy head. Toffee-malty, British-style bitter aroma with a hint of metal and strawberry. Slightly sour and acidic berries and dark toffee aroma. Long, lingering, somewhat bittersweet berry aftertaste. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated and bitter palate. A quite enjoyable, British-Belgian brew.
