Bottle. Fizzy pour with a large sized head. Amber in color. This one was just nasty - infected? Sounded interesting, but straight to the drain.

Draft at Brussels Beer Festival. Pours cloudy brown with a thick off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, biscuits and malt. Flavour is medium sweet and light to moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It really is like drinking nice cinnamon cookies!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
If you love Bastogne cookies, you’ll love this beer too! It’s amber with a nice and lasting head. The aroma has clear notes of Bastogne cookies and cinnamon. The flavour is quite sweet and the Bastogne cookies are so dominant, that it’s like drinking them :) I liked this one, and it gets extra points for fantasy and fun.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small rim over fully hazy pale orange beer. Demure nose, faintly spiced, cinnamon & allspice (speculooskruiden). Really full speculoosflavour, spot on; even not too sweet, but very well-spiced. Well-carbonated, medium bodied. Definitely not bad, unless one dislikes speculoos (Be hard gingerbread).
Earlier Rating: 3/5/2006 Total Score: 2.3
Golden - pineapple colour, slightly hazy; initially good off-white head, receding to transparant rim. Sweet nose indeed, speculoos (=hard gingerbread) and spicey/greenery nose. Overpowering spicey taste, pèle-mèle nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, cardemom, allspice, but in untreatable measure. Sticky, cloying. Sorry, that’s not what I want from a drink.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours hazy pale brown with a thin white head. Aromas are spicy - cinnamon and cardamom - some sweet malt. Taste is sweet, and more reminiscent of American cookies. Texture is creamy. Finishes with a spicy linger.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels.
Can’t claim to have been to Belgium w/o trying our famous Speculoos cookies.
pours a hazy golden, thick white head.
Aroma was overly yeasty, with candi sugar, cookie dough, some light citrus scent, and a typical nose that was reminescent of speculoos cookie.
Taste, candi sugar, malty, cookie/bready, some honey like sweetness, finish with a light bittersweet palate. Lots of floating sediments. Could be better if the yeast just wasn’t too overwhelming.
