UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 It is gorgeous both in color, aroma. The slightly sour taste in a mouth is subjected to strong impression. It is also likely to keep a good balance of whole if there is a little more sweetness here that feeling of alcohol is surging at the same time, but the sweetness is not enough. It must be the best beer if they have it.

Delicious! Lots of malt, dates and plums in the aroma and taste. A bit of tartness kicks in on the palate. It has a beautiful tamarind color.

Bière ambrée, assez fruitée et sucrée, légère amertume, pas mal de corps, alcool présent. Plus complèxe qu’il n’y parait.

33cl in a Delirium Tremens glass. Pours a medium reddish/dark amber colour with a truly huge white head that lasts all through the drink. Taste is overripe grapes and yeast. Mouthfeel is very good both firm and refreshing at the same time with excellent carbonation. Aftertaste is somewhat reminiscent of St. Bernardus ABT. Excellent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33 cl bottle with red cap that simply says "bottled" but I know for a fact I’ve been storing this in my basement for a few years) Bottle opens with quite an emission of carbonation. Sounds like the yeast has been active. Pours a clear, light mahogany with tan head that seems very active in the glass constantly overturning bubbles and regenerating nicely. Aroma has notes of vinegar, sour cherries, yeast, straw and a hint of bready malt. Oily texture, lively carbonation and a tart finish with a hint of caramel. Flavour is sour and slightly sweet. A strange concoction that I have yet to appreciate properly.
