RichardGretton (4406) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Muddy bronze beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is lightly spiced with a good degree of bitterness. The flavour is more like a Belgian beer than an English beer with heavy bitterness, some spice and a good degree of maltiness. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (4251) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 20, 2012
Glowing amber body, big bubbly light tan head. Light haze. Big aroma, enormously fruity, strawberry, cherry, blueberry, fermented fruit, candy, wine gums, some rye. Very sweet, but rich. Oily mouthfeel, bit sticky. Very Belgian. Pretty sweet body, balanced a bit by a good amount of straightforward bitterness. Alcohol shines through. Full mouthfeel feel, not an easy drink. Over the top maybe, but I can appreciate this. End with spiced, pickled orange peel. Not super refined though. Hard for me to assign a style or think of a comparable beer. Glad I tried this.
