3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This starts with an aroma that doesn’t quite match the style. There’s some of the Belgian spice, with a stronger sweet aroma. Pours a cloudy dark amber, with almost no head. I’m not sure if I would say the flavor is traditional... there’s a bitterness in the finish that stands out. The spice is there to start with, but quickly fades. It’s interesting, not sure if I’m planning on getting it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (from beergium). Pours golden with whiteish head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, apples, candy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fresh fruits, candy, malt. Finish is mild dry bitter with some alcohol and lingering sweetness. Drinkability is very good, despite the abv. Overall: very good, not that complex, but well made and sweet + boozy (just as I like it).
