3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Gusher. Unclear light golden pour, thick foamy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, cardamon and chemical ant repellent. Quite nasty. Flavor is very spicy, somewhat sweet and clearly like speculoos. A lot better than the aroma suggested. Quite extravagant brew, strange but somehow appealing.

Surprisingly alright even though I am not a huge fan of ginger cookies.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Spiced cinamon aroma. Pale gold in color with nice white head. Grahm cracker and speculoos tasting...exactly as the name suggests. An interesting beer.
Notes: Bottle at Zythos ’11

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 15cl sample at ZBF’11
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... .

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 don’t like sweet beers, I actually liked this one, I thought it did what it was supposed to do.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 wouldn’t want to drink more than one.
