Reddish hue, amber head. Interesting aroma of berries. Stronger than expected, wide variety of tastes going on in the mouth. Berries, some caramel, fruits, barley. Overall something quite different. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pringao_Toribi (180) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Great intermediate beer, resembles brown ales but with a touch of trappist beer. Strong but flowery, appeals to the nose. For cap collectors: interesting, has a red cap with the face of Charles V.

Rated from beer log during 2009 Belgium trip... Sweet aroma, caramel in color with light tan head as far as I can tell with the three handled glass... Sweet in flavor, absolutely no hoppiness or bitterness in the finish... Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GSAP (410) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2013
Kruidig, kersen en stoofvlees met rode wijn in aroma. Smaak is donker en kruidig als een lichte Glühwein, nasmaak trekt lang door. Aangenaam drinkbaar.

75 cl bottle. Ruby colour, little head, faint malty aroma. Taste is sweet with dark fruits, brown sugar and alcohol. Somewhat boring.

EddyBeer1 (763) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2013
Ambrée foncée (et non rouge rubis!), pétillance inexistante de visu, légère au palais, quasi pas de col. Les malts caramel torréfiés dominent des goûts de cola et de fruits rouges et foncés. Classique mais agréable...

tricksta_p (634) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2013
Pours a handsome amber with a small head. Sweet aroma of bread, malts, red fruits, a slight caramel. Alcohol is hidden well. A decent beer.
