Cloudy blond color. Aroma of guess what, speculoos. Flavor is also overpowered by speculoos and sugar. Slight mint flavor.
Very interesting on how they get the speculoos flavor so well in it, but this is not a beer... .

Bottle purchased at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Pours a clear gold/orange, off-white head. Sweet malts, doughy, cinnamon, and lots of spice. As much as I dont like sweet beers, I actually liked this one, I thought it did what it was supposed to do.

What to expect from a beer with this name... It pours out golden, light orange with a medium head that should hold a bit longer, but sticks ok to the glass. Smell is totally not cookies for me... Really spiced, hoppy smell. Smells like a lot of winterbeers. The taste is sweet, totally outbalanced, and weird. A lot of spices, but to call it "speculoos", I really have to say no. Weird beer, not my style.

Sweet beer! Very sweet beer! Light palate. Some floral notes and a subtle but pervading ginger. Well joined up - a grower!

33cl bottle from Beer Planet in Brussels. TONS of carbonation, and lots of yeast particulate visible. Sweet notes in the aroma and palate. Nice tan color with notes of sweet spice. Really tasted like a sugar cookie. Different beer and enjoyable. However, you really wouldnt want to drink more than one.

330mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a monstrous white head. Aroma of cookie, yeast, and various christmas spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). The cookies flavour stands out the most in flavour, with the spices (especially cinnamon) toning it toward the end and on the finish. Decent attempt here.

Premesso che sono sbronzo. Bevuta al big ben di Sampierdarena dal bicchiere di Corkscrew, siam venuti qua perch doveva esserci la blonde hop e non cera... ma va b. Questa birra terribilmente insaporita alla cannella e ai biscotti allo zenzero. al primo sorso buona al secondo ha gi stufato. ebbasta non mica natale
