Pours a hazy brownish red with a frothy ruby head. Lots of sweet dark fruits on the nose with hints of yeasty booze. The finish is a bit astringent with sweet notes persiting throughout the whole experience. I love the Belgians

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The Crown (JDW), Berkhampsted on 16 March 2014. Poured a clear, deep ruby, with a very large, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeasts, redcurrent, spice and sweet malts. Initial flavours of berries, bready malt, caramel and candy sugar. Rich mouthfeel with lots of gentle carbonation. Finish is bitter sweet dry grains, toffee, yeast esters and coriander. Ubiquitous, but a classic for a good reason.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Syrupy copper aroma and interesting diamond like head pattern. Deep red brown in colour. Cloudy for me but probably because shaken in bag. Typical Belgian yeast flavour but with some copper darkness to it. Somewhat soft, good texture.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. brown with a huge slowly disappearing head. Some malts and a lot of sweetness. Very smooth as the description says. Has a bit of caramel as well. No alcohol in the palate but a bit too much carbonation. Very pretty beer but there are much better Dubs, especially for the price. Prefer the Blu as per most people.

D’un brun trouble, son service fait penser au champagne.Belle mousse mais courte. Les arômes me rappelle les noix, la caramel, un peu la mélasse. La levure est bien présent. Bref, belle double qui met les bases au style!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.20oz bottle from Winslow’s in Greenville, N.C. Dark brown hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white fizzy head. Lively body particles. Virtually no lacing. Dark fruit aroma (grapes), some malt as it warms. Bitter dark fruit up front with the same finish. Lively carbonation on the tongue. I thought this was pretty tasty.
