Wonderful beer. Definitly among the best Belgians I’ve had. Love the aftertaste, a long enjoyable ride. Had it a couple times at Cafe Bastille in Taipei from bottle

Achetée à Saveur Drink, Une incroyable mousse dense et persistante qui surmonte une belle robe brune. Arômes de caramel et de prune, saveurs fruitées et boisées, notes vineuse. Final acidulé. Un grand classique !

The foam of this beer is wonderfull, stays very long, and remains thick. It has a sour flavour, which is also appearing in the taste. It is a very open beer for his kind. The taste is fruity, and the alcohol is masker very well.

Aroma’s van azijnzuur, bloemen en zure melk vormen een complexe geur die leidt naar fruitige nasmaak die lang doorzindert.

Really neat little sour brown beer with a light brown pour and a beige head. The nose has a light fruity aroma with slight sourness and a bit of roasted malts. Sweet caramel and fruity flavours with a light pervasive sourness. Very well balanced and complex plus its super unique.

Cerveza oscura y con espuma densa. Olor afrutado, piña y algo floral. Sabor especiado, picante, grano de cafe, chocolateado. Calienta la garganta. Gran cuerpo, gran balance, y perfecta de gas. Muy recomendable. Mejor no muy fria.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 9%
Beautiful colour, something betwwen of dark ruby red and caramel/amber brown. Big froathy hed, beige in colour, slowly collapsing leavinf no lacing on the glass.
Aroma seems a bit boring at first, with just some caramek in it, but after a swirl of the glass, a bouquet of different aromas surfaces. Smells a bit sour, with white grapes, very wine-y, but after a while the aroma turns to a sweet one, with red grapes this time,caramel and sugars. Some hints of the alcohol as well between sniffs. All in all, very complex aroma.
Great taste, also very wine-like. The complexity is present on the taste as well, with a very light sourness at first, turning quite fast to a mildly sweet taste. Lots of grapes in there, some caramel too on the finish. Very well hidden alcohol.
Medium thin body, good amount of carbonation, really smooth. A tart feeling on the palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with maybe a slight amber hue. Big frothy head that fades normally but never completely goes away. Fruity aroma, plums, cherries, raisins, and some bread too. Taste starts with a light sweetness, lots of dark dried fruit. Finishes with a nice light tartness. Berries and raisins in the finish. A little foamy and fizzy in the mouthfeel but it goes away so fast that it doesn’t bother me much. Medium to thick body. Overall, its a very nice Belgian Strong. I think I would like this better with some age on it. Carbonation would fade and the flavors would get richer.
