3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark orange colour. Flavour has some bittersweet orange zest and some yeast too. Not particularly distinctive and perhaps a bit low on flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle, at home. A very nice amber color. Nice white head that unfortunately goes down a bit quick. Pleasant strong taste without too much of the sweet yeast taste. A good beer!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BB Apr 2014. Clear dark red, slightly sparkling, small white foamy head endures. Smell - sweet cherry malts. Body - medium, foamy, carbonation is low. Taste - coffee, cherry, liquorice, spice. All of the flavours are quite light. There’s a flavour running through it that reminds me of tea.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Nice cloudy caramel. Taste and aroma were mild and balanced, some caramel, spice and yeast. Full body, alcohol is masked very well and it was easy to drink. Overall, not sure what to make of it. Strong Belgian ales usually have very strong flavours, and while this wasn’t thin, it was definitely more subtle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a orange amber colour with a nice white head. Aroma is wheat, spicy and fruity. Medium carbonation and medium body. The flavour is a well balanced trip between bitter and sweet with a hoppy and dry finish. Overall, a very nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with caramel, toffee, forest fruits and bitter oranges. Not the best one...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a murky caramel colour with moderate-sized off-white head. Aroma is a mix of dark and light skinned fruits with caramel, wheat and spice. Flavour is banana, apple, raisin, caramel, bread and a modest spiciness. Fine carbonation. Drying finish. Impressive.
