33CL bottle at home, bought at my last minute run after I found out Christoffel brewery was Bankrupt. Dark Orange/Brown beer, Aroma reminds me of the German Malzbeer called Karamalz, Taste had a bit of sweetness. Overall a good beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy darker orange, almost brown beer with a medium sized, off white head. Aroma has touches of banan, sugar, pineapple and bay leaves in the background. Quite interesting, yet a bit disturbing for a dunkelweizen. Flavour is bland, medium sweet but not much going on here. Overall not too impressed by this one.. Decent and average, thatís all.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml swing top bottle, poured into a weizen glass. ABV 6%
Slighty hazy body, dark brown in colour, with a finger of beige head. Low retention and no lacing left behind. But what an impressive colour!
Aroma of malts, caramel red grapes and stewed fruits. Very good.
Taste is mildly sweet at first, with lots of chocolate in it. Aftertaste slighty bitter, again with chocolate and stewed dark fruits.
Medium to full body, good amount of carbonation and nice dryness on the palate.
Overall, this was a great beer. I had it for almost a year in my cellar and I am drinking this very close to its expiration date, too bad that the company went out of bussiness. I would love to try one fresh and see of there is any difference.

Donkerbruine kleur, de kraag is redelijk snel weg. Ruikt lekker naar caramel. Smaakt naar mout, caramel, ilichtzoet met een wat bittere afdronk. Best te drinken.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a red tint and a thin, off-white, quick disappearing, fizzy head. Smells of dark fruit Ė raisins, lots of caramel and brown sugar but mostly sweet malt. Some light dark malt and biscuit notes. Full oily body with soft carbonation. Very sweet caramel, taste with a light bitter fruit dry finish. Some grass lingers. Grainy. Nice and sweet and easy to drink but the shift from sweet to grassy is a little sharp. Nonetheless, nice to drink but not that bitter.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Murky brownish color with a small beige head. Smell is weird, wet leaves is what comes to mind. Taste isnít really great either. Itís drinkable but I donít really like it. Itís not my style either so that also doesnít help. Low to medium bodyand carbonation.
