Geruch ziemlich süß, Gewürze, erinnert an Wein, Hagebutte. Süßer Start. Mitte Gewürze, Zimt, Trauben. Abgangs Malz, wieder gewürzig und leicht bitter-trocken. Ok.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
Darke bronze ale with maple syrup and off-white, thin head; strong sweet fruits in the nose, candied dates, bananas, chocolate and clear presence of resinous maply syrup. Taste likewise: sweet with exotic fruits, resinous mouthfeel with spicy notes, maple syrup unmistakable, sugary and even cloying finish with some floral hops. Not unlike their Ultradélice. Too sweet for me and I don’t like maple syrup very much, at least not in such an obtrusive way.

kermis (5042) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma of raisins, Christmas spices, dark fruits, molasses and caramel. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle from Utobeer. Interesting one. Oily. Over-sweet. Not well balanced. Not exactly my cup of tea. A cute label tho.

77ships (3763) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured at Willems. Cap says 18/03/2014. Looks a bit like a Cola knock-off with a fizzing away beige-head. Makes me think of mazout (Coca-Cola & pils mix). Smells like cheap Cola knock-off, rotting dark fruits, overdone brown banana, wet leaves, very cheap soda. Tastes of cheap soda syrup, rotting dark fruits, Cola, spoiled yoghurt, brown banana, rotting uneatable brries. <body seems a bit off. I cannot shake the mazout / off feel to it. Ugh but drinkable.

Caramel, raisin. Plenty of Maple syrup, rich cereals, dark fruit, sweet finish. Interesting maple twist on a Belgian strong, the sweetness totally covers the alcohol but slowly gets quite overwhelming.

Beerhunter111 (7372) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 2, 2014
Trübes rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig süß, überreife Früchte, hefig, würzig. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, reife Früchte, leicht alkoholisch, würzig.

Sweet and subtle maple sirup taste, mixes well with the Brown ale. Smooth and not toi fruity, not bad at all

Brownish beer with almost no head and lots of small sediment. Skunky sweet aroma. Flavour is a bit acidic, sweet and flat. (Bottle 33cl)
