JefVerstraete (1275) - BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle @ Groote Witte Arend, Antwerpen. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Aroma of light roasted malts, caramel and dark fruit. Bit thin and not very well balanced. Decent, nothing special.

mjs (4549) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2014
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 19/01/14, at Gastropub Tuulensuu, 20140609) The beer poured deep ruby red and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had caramel, dark fruits, ripe banana and malts. Palate was surprisingly light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, dark fruits, ripe banana, sweetness, malts, dark chocolate and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A nicely aged brew. I’m sad that I have had no possibilities to try this one as fresh.

De grote witte arend in antwerpen. Robijn rood met fijne kraag. Aroma is wat muffig. Smaak is redelijk vlak, wat zoetig. Niet speciaal.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2014
Bouteille 333cl de Willems, BB 03/07/2015. Another gusher. Cuivrée léger, col faible beige. Arôme est fruité noir dominant sur un malté léger, léger biscuité et sucre brun accompagné de levure qui sont un peu trop présent. Palais est trop effervescent, malt caramel, sucre brun sur un fruité noir oscillant vers le raisin sec et une petite note épicée. Caramel léger, toffee avec ce côté crystal. Sec et poussiéreux sur la fin tjrs avec ce côté fruité.
