Hazy amber with off white head - aroma has a lot of spices in it - The taste of the spices overpower all else in the taste - finish is spice and some yeast - this was good even if spice was all it tasted

A nice surprise. Fruity and herbal aroma. Taste is bittersweet, with a complex range from anise to caramel, from herbs to honey. I really appreciated this!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light tea coloured pour. Aroma of Chamolile with a hint of metal. Taste is complex but the flavours are a wide array of conflicts. sour withchamomile, metal, a very slight bit of mint, caramel, - all too subtle save for the metal. Appreciate the opportunity to try this but i was not a fan. Barely finished my sample and did not go back for a second.

Like a biere de garde, but lighter, and a little sourish. Average mouthfeel. Nothing to lok at. Thanks Doug.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks nice with it’s mist copper body and of white head that lasts. A surprising aroma I think, with spicy candy (Dutch Hopjes, or Werther’s), chestnut, leather and vanilla. Quite unusual for a beer, but definitely nice. It doesn’t quite work as good for the taste, unfortunately, which is dry and medicinal. Especially the very finish reveals this. Carbonation is ok, but it’s because of the typical taste that I won’t have many of these. Fun to try though for sure. Should be categorised as spice/herbal/plant. (33cl bottle)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle at Hall’s Beer Tavern, Rue St Denis, Paris on 18th November 2011. Pours hazy amber with thick yellow-white foam soon decaying to low level and leaving a patchy lace. Yeast and malt aromas - pungent autumn leaves and herbiness. Liquid has a fair amount of body and is richly malty but not too sweet. Berry fruits and strong aniseed line present. Aniseed and fruit blend with malt in a richly fruity aftertaste. Zingy mouthfeel.
