Bottle, from Dranken Geers I think. Quite odd. Not great when rated as a Belgian Strong Ale but I quite enjoyed it all the same. Dark brown, quickly fading beige head. Seemed to be fizzy but with low carbonation palate wise? Perhaps I was just drunk. Dark fruits, prunes, alcohol, yeast, malts.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2009
A little hazy red/brown colored beer, with a thick beige head. The Aroma of sweet malts, with coffee candy, some yeast and fruits like cherry. The taste is fruity sweet, with bitter and a little note of sour. Some spices in the back. The aftertaste is bittersweet.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Again, like these Vleteren beers, very light. Aroma is light and sweet and a bit one dimensional. Taste is sweet with more complexity than aroma. Some fruit present, not bad.

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing. Pours a clear dark reddish-amber with a white ring. Sweet aroma, of malt, honey, wood, spices, and squash. Taste is sweet and sparkly, lots of honey, with malt and wood. Lingering sparkly honey. Nice.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts strong and sweet, modest spicy, a little bit alcoholic. Well balanced, warming finish. Good one!
