Orval-looking beer, perhaps a little darker. Malty aroma, with some fruity spiciness in there. Taste is very good. This is a very good beer. I really like the complex malt.

Very nice soft aroma, quiet special, flowery but not pushy, there is some herbal element in it. It was so nice that I could not stop my self from drinking immediately. Flavour as often is not matching the qualities of aroma. Yes it was decent a bit earthy, dark bitterness with roasted set of malts. It feels like they use more than one, much different ingredients that makes interesting effect on aftertaste.

Dark hazy orange, bubbly head. Very nice aroma of fresh fruit, yeast, spice, light chocolate and caramelly malt. Body is citrusy and fruity with yeast being dominant and rounded off by an organic hoppiness similar to the blond. Nice sweet malt backbone. Wow, this is an outstanding, complex lager. Unlike any I’ve had, better than the blond, a more reserved hoppiness and a beautiful fruitiness.

An amber beer with a nice head. It has a slightly fruity aroma and a slightly metallic prickling fruit and spice flavor - nice and intriguing

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2008 Thick, creamy head. Very malty aroma. Mango, chocolate and caramel. Sweetish, malty taste with licorice and peach. Excellent beer.
Bottle, sold as Biesbosch Bier. Probably the same beer as Robertus. Swing top bottle, brown color. Malty aroma with a hint of caramel. Malty, caramelly flavor with hints of pear drups. Flowery hops, with a hint of citrus in the finish. Almost full bodied. Well made dunkel.

Red-brown color, with a creamy head indeed. Kind of malty aroma. Better than the Christoffel Blond IMO.
