4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home (from Alus Celle Riga).
Aroma: fancy caramel, sweet, bread, malty, a little spicy, fruit notes. Really nice. Golden-amber with big grey-ish head color. Something very familiar from glass, but I can’t remember.
Body is creamy, caramel, quite thick, ethereal. Medium sweet (a bit more). Tart and some medicine notes in the finish. Amazing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2016 33cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Poured a chestnutty red brown with a huge 4 finger ivory head. Waited a while for the head to dissipate to get to the aroma. Aromas of cherries, malty sweetness, apple, and later when getting more to room temperature the aromas keep developing, there is chocolate with dark fruits and raisins and plums. Taste is amazing! Cherries, vanilla, caramel, apricots, apple pie, toasted bread with jam, plums, raisins, molasses, licorice. Very vinous. Sour but not overwhelming. And it gets even better when getting more to room temperature. Awesome what’s going on in my mouth here! The malty sweetness is kicking in with chocolate, coffee and tart now...WOW! What a complex brew this is, it keeps on developing. It’s hard to believe with what I’m drinking right now that Oerbier tasted even better with the Rodenbach yeast in the past so now I got to taste some of these earlier brews as a comparison. I am going to follow up the brewers advice and cellar a lot of these and enjoy one every year to mark its development over the years. Overall a sensational brew, a full body with a slightly dry, creamy, sticky tart finish. Bravo Dolle Brouwers!! And thank you for the experience...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale yellow color. Nice white medium head. Flowery aroma. Hints of yeast. A bit caramelly at first. Bitter in the middle. Bitter, even herbal finish. Very well balanced, medium carbonated, well drinable, rather medium bodied beer, but stil light then considering the abv.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 dark, murky brown beer, with plenty of beige foam. Aroma of malt, caramel, dark fruit and vanilla. Brett some fresh yeast. creamy on the palate, with malty taste with hints of molasses, candy, cake, again dark fruit, ripe plums spices and yeast. Something dry and sour at the end, with some connotation of red wine. In fact there is a special edition wine aged in barrels of Bordeaux. Alcohol well integrated.

-pours a cloudy ruby-brown with a big,foamy,beige head
-medium to high carbonation visible
-sour cherries,strawberries,woody,caramel,chocolate,herb cherries,chocolate,cognac
-light to medium body
Taste is pretty good,but the ridiculous amount of carbonation makes this undrinkable.
Not gonna repeat

Sample at Winking Lizard. Cloudy amber color with a medium fluffy white head that dissipates gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of ripe fruit, earthy yeast and grainy malt. The finish is fruity with a cherry and fig aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
