3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 7%
Deep red brown colour on the body, more brown than red when sitting on the table and the opposite when hold against the light. Body is clear. Good sized tan head, with good retention. A thin line of foam left around the edges and light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of sugar, very fruity, figs, red fruits, marmalade.
Taste is also very fruity with red fruits, caramel, some yeast. Big plus the even more fruity aftertaste, with its mild bitterness.
Medium body, carbonation a bit on the high side.
Overall good belgian strong, I wouldn’t exactly call it a winter beer, as it lacks giving this warming feeling.

Tap@WBF12. Mwww... don’t know what to think about this. Had it, didn’t like it all, completely amateurish. However, later on (new keg?), someone said "no I like it" and I tried it. This one wasn’t spectacular but way better.
