Keg in Burgers & Beer Gollem in Antwerp. Clear bright rusty orange beer with and medium white head. Nose is spicy, sherberty hop, lemon citrus spritz, boiled sweet, barley sugar, earthy hop. Taste is boiled sweet, barley sugar, toasted grains, earthy, herbal hop, light citrus, dried coriander, spice. Little yeasty floral. Considering its pasteurised this is a very good beer.

Thanks for nothing @kapusil! jk jk. Light amber color with no head. Aroma is sweet syruppy and malty. Light mild bitterness, especially apparent in the finish. Sometimes sweeter, and sticky. Not bad, but not that great either. Not sure what made MJ put this on the 500 list..

0.33l bottle. Clear amber body, very thin white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, cherries, cloves and floral hops. Not bad, but somehow it lacks the character.

Draft. Not bad, just nothing particularly interesting or special; especially when considering the alternatives. Was fine for washing down my pizza.

Tap at Brewery Museum Brussels. Semi sweet, light caramel. Smooth. Light to medium body. Easy drinking. Not very memorable.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a fluffy white head, aroma is malty, the taste is medium bitterness and soft in the mouth, with a dry bitter finish.

Some caramel and yeast on the aroma, this has a sweet taste, highly carbonated on the tongue

Aspecto: Bonito tono ámbar con brillos cobrizos, con buena transparencia y espuma de color entre blanquecino y beige, y aspecto compacto, de mediana amplitud y notable retención, que deja algunos restos de encaje adheridos a la copa. Aroma: Aromas de perfil maltoso y componente afrutado con notas a suave caramelo, galleta, almendras, ciruelas, naranja amarga y también especias (un sutil toque de canela), hierbas, que aportan recuerdos medicinales y lúpulos nobles. Apenas existe rastro del alcohol. Sabor y textura: Cuerpo medio en boca, muy bien ajustado a la graduación alcohólica de la cerveza y muy bien balanceada. El gusto viaja desde una base firme de malta levemente tostada y con notas caramelizadas, y afrutadas con reminiscencias de frutos secos, como almendras, a otra serie de matices especiados (canela), medicinales (regaliz, hierbas balsámicas,...) y florales procedentes de los lúpulos nobles, que terminan por aportar un cierto grado de amargor complementario al final de perfil seco. Cierta mineralidad salina en boca que se percibe al final del trago. Una cerveza que sorprende al mismo tiempo por su equilibrio y complejidad, que se bebe con una gran facilidad. Imprescindible probarla como referencia del estilo Spéciale Belge.
