Color of dried apricots, very hazy. Yellow-dust-colored, medium-fine, uniform head which fades to film at a moderate-to-quick rate. Aroma is a sweet nectar, neutral, light caramel, sweet hay, apple pie, hint of granny smith underneath the sweetness. Little light brown sugar. Medium body, watery but slightly syrupy. Soft, medium coarseness in the carbonation. Flavor is light, clean demerara sweetness with an herbal, delicate bitterness to balance throughout the taste. Fades quietly. Some sweet pear. Very nice, yummy biere de garde. I love the bitterness balance in the flavor.

Zekada (425) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is sour and has a bit of bread and some fruit. Pours light brown with a rich white head. Taste is complex, a mix of malts, caramel, fruits and a hint of nuts. Palate is fittingly thin and very drinkable. Overall a good beer with a complexity.

Niksko (454) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours a darkish amber with a fizzy offwhite head. Nose is a little banana, raisin, clove, brown sugar, a slight damp funk. Flavor is dark fruit, plum, raisin, banana, slightly sharp on the mid palate, lots of clove on the finish, with a little brandy and some candi sugar. Medium body with a fizzy carbonation. Not bad.

Espuma de boa formação e persistência. Cor laranja escuro. Aroma de frutas amarelas e caramelo ao fundo. No sabor, pêssegos, malte, com médio e persistente amargor e médio dulçor. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikeyo1 (396) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy light borwn color with a huge head. Sweet and malty aroma with lots of fruits. Apples and pear, apricots and lemon. Bread, grain, dust, dough, candy, a hint of alcohol and some toffee & pepper also constitutes the aroma. Medium bodied, smooth but lightly astringent mouth feel.Taste of pear, apples, bread, pepper, apricots, dough. Mid-taste has orange and more pepper plus bread & candy. Drier finish with dusty notes, more pear, apple peel and a moderate nutty bitterness. Nice complexity, but a bit too sprawling. Will probably mellow out with some aging.

mcberko (9214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a dark rusted amber brown with a medium beige head. Nose brings out toasted chestnuts, farmhouse notes, toasted oak and bready malt. Flavour reveals dry nutty notes upfront, with toasted crusty rye bread, oak and farmhouse yeast. Quite complex, with many deep layers. Robust and flavourful. ABV is extremely well-masked. Excellent.

cards04 (2217) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
A nice beer de garde. Not my favorite style... But still well made from a very respected brewery. Aromas are slightly funky yeast. Some sweet and candy like aromas too. Flavors are sweet and malty...dried fruit, caramel, funk. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful dark orange color with a huge head. A very fruity beer with heavy notes of apricots and also some toffee and chewing gum. Still fresh.

@ Basunen oktober 2014: typisk belgisk med tydliga kolatoner, malt och annars ganska snäll. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
