Bottle I brought back from Belgium. Brown, thin, fluffy & white head. Aroma is rather neutral, with some vinegarish aroma. Taste is malty, somewhat sweet, reserved sourness and a balsamic vinegar character. Notes of dried fruits, wood. Really rather good.

Great vinegar nose, brown-red color, and tan head. Dark vinegar tastes with some apple cider, fruit and even toffee tones mixed in a complex profile. Some raisins towards the end followed by a dry thin finihs. Takes a while perhaps to warm up to this beer (and this style) but it is sophisticated and overall an amazing beverage.
