3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown beer with a white head which retains itself beautifully. Good lacing also. Aroma is of sour berries and freshly plained pine. Taste is typically Belgian with candy sugar coming through. As I said typically Belgian but only average within its class.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate gushing to yellow-tinted head, huge and dense; hazy dark-amber beer. Slight aroma of (sorry) horsesh*t, vegetable, freshly dried hops, farmyard, iron. Hayish flavour, much sweeter than expected from the nose, caramel. Just a faint, metallic hopflavour in the palate. More toffee, probably iron, better masked as in the nose. Medium-bodied, velvety texture. Quite good Belgian speciale, Walloon version. Vies with the best, actually.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bourbon amber clear with large yellow-tan head and light lace. Grassy bitter hops, light fruit and faint coffee, smoked, and caramel malt aromas. Medium body with a slightly syrupy consistency and pleasing bitter sweet palate. Finish and aftertaste are sweetish caramel with that hint of smoke coming back again. A nice easy drinking beer.
