3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It poured with very little head or carbonation. I found it to be a quite wine like amber beer. Slightly malty & bitter, not bad.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Biergarden. Delivered in a goblet, deep mahogany with a firm, airy head. The aroma is darn near wine-like. Drinks with a sweet grape front end, followed by just a swirl of yeastiness. Much sweeter than I expected, but tasty and fun. (#4866, 12/23/2012)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the Paters Vaetje, Antwerp. Poured a dark golden brown with a thin white head. The aroma is weak but dry and yeasty. The flavour is bitter with liquorice and a slightly metallic aftertaste. It's like a dark malt roasted regular De Koninck. I prefer the original.
