Een lekker bier met een goede, volle smaak. Ik vond het net als de blonde een topper

Bottle from Brugsen. (0,75 bottle). Pours red amber with an off-white head. Sweet malty taste of dried dark fruits, some spices, caramel. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Slight sweet fruity finish.

Nice dark beer with a caramel like taste. Aroma and looks are good, but could be better. Taste is very good, though not the best.

Min allra första belgare i Belgien. Den får bra betyg. Och miljön den dracks på var riktigt grym!

0.33L bottle. Pours a clear, deep red with a fluffy off white hea that lingers. Aromas of cough drop, dusty hop, alcohol, raspberry and cherry. Fairly sweet up front, hints of butterscotch and fruit. Finishes with some decent bittering hops to balance off the sugars with some warm alcohol and cloying sugars in the end. Full body with a nice, creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly sugary, but tasty beer. It strikes a decent balance between malt and bittering hops, and has a noteworthy mouthfeel.

It does what it says on the tin this: it’s ruby red with a covering of off-white head and some good carbonation with a few flakes of sediment. It smells of red fruit jellies and fruit pastilles with a dash of sherbet, but for all that, the aroma doesn’t reek of sweetness. The carbonation is stronger than I expected in such a rich beer. Some good sweetness and twinges of raspberry and blackberry juiciness. It sits perched on the palate, a welcome guest, and lingers like the tasty little devil it is. A port-like finish that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Muddy ruby. Thin beige head and lacing. Very fruity aroma of port, sugar, berries and wine gum. Caramel, red currants and other berries in taste.

KoNrRiI (519) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2014
0.75 bottle. The color is ruby red just like commercially described, the head is small and tanned. Sweet aroma, kind of malty-ish with dark fruits. Taste is also sweet and also contains dark fruits and malts, apart from that some spices are present. Medium body, thick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish can be described as more conventional when it comes to Belgian beers - it has more spicy notes, more complexity, and more sourness. Overall the beer is quite good, but considering the style it could have been better.

Cerveza oscura-rojiza. Tiene una espuma densa y un gusto algo afrutado y dulce. Algo diferente.
