psilosophy (531) - vitry en artois, - OCT 7, 2011
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur rougeâtre foncé, mousse abondante de très belle tenue. Arômes fruités : fruits rouges, pruneaux mais aussi réglisse, l’alcool est bien présent mais les 12% passent comme une lettre à la poste. Belle carbonnation offrant une agréable sensation en bouche. Une très bonne brune. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

ippopotamo36 (509) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 5, 2015
At Gollem in Antwerp-Belgium, 0,33 bottle shared with markoijelena. Courtesy of Sam, thank you sir. Pours coffee-bean colour with reddish appearance, medium-low ivory cap. Nose is toasted malts, slightly grassy. Mouth: high carbonation, roasted-burnt grains, bitter overall palate. A bit boring and not a beer I would reconsider drinking, although all in all ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Rootz. Pours hazy brown with a small tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, caramel, raisins. Flavor is over moderate sweet and light bitter. Medium to full bodied with disturbingly hug carbobation.

Vells (848) - Riga, LATVIA - FEB 20, 2015
Bit weird vinegary first kick on nose, but its gone before second sniff. Very lovely brew. Bold, same time subtle. Strong malty background, awesome dried fruit implementation, some hops for balance. Mostly sweet with light bitterness. Well balanced and enjoyable. Feels bit like little cousin of westy and rochefort in a good way.

willisread (388) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 11, 2015
On tap at Popeye in Tokyo. Served in a stemmed tulip. No head upon serving. Rusty amber color with strong muscat aroma. Alcohol forward beer with a thin, watery texture on the tongue. Grape flavor really jumped out after coming to room temperature. Awesome, awesome Belgian.
