maybe its the coriander and burnt toffee and orange and melon, pepper, usually a potent turnoff for my sensitive palate. Very much like a brown ale to me,

UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 ’03 33 cl bottle. Amber color with a nice head that dissolves into just a thin sheet. Aroma of De Dolle yeast, apples, caramel malt, oak and candi sugars. I did get some coriander, orange and burnt caramel out of this awesome beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my first Belgians--and in retrospect, it is like the name of its brewers, a bit odd.
Strong aroma, semi-acidic body with yeast and hop notes. There are beers I like better but this one’s unique.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper coloured with a truckload of sediments. HUGE head. Citrus-fruity yeast- aroma. Sweetish, frutiy, peppry flavour. Rich and warming. The taste of alcohol may be a bit too upfront.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours rich amber coppery, wispy head with touches of lace (nothing as chunky as that from Arabier). Aroma is almost pure alcohol whiff, with a touch of almond. Flavor is a bit sour, light malty, and minimally hopped. Smooth mouthfeel, with brisk tangy finish. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
bold fruit forward beer with wine and port like qualities. Dark fruits and Turbinado candy sugar make for for a very satisfying brew.
