2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, dark amber colour with a big and beige frothy head. Sweet and moderately sour, also slightly dusty toast-malty aroma with notes of citrus, red berries and shy notes of caramel. Moderately sweet and sour flavour, medium bodied with a surprisingly soft carbonation. Cara-malty, slightly sour-doughy and fruity taste with a slightly sweet and sourish fruity finish. Cannot say if the acidic character is intended. 14.III.10

16/05/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: SEPT/2012 (2011-212)
Cloudy brown beer with purple glare. Off-white crackling head, falls back to a few mm of creamy light beige foam. Aroma: tart apples, green apple skin, a bit fruity, some spices (pepper, ginger). MF: good carbon, light to medium body. Taste: sour apples (pretty predictable from the smell), lemony, a bit of caramel, slightly sweet touch, some lactobacillus. Aftertaste: turning pretty tart, lemony, but also some wood tones and some hop or bitter spices. On warming up, chocolate and tangerine is also detected. Well, apparently the infections of the beer are their "style", and in this beer it works (sort of) but I’m still uncertain whether to like it or not.

Bottle@Home. Odd spices in the aroma that I really don’t like. Gusher, cloudy, beige head, good lace. Sweet, no hops, molasses and those spices again. Full and sticky. Odd flavours, strange stuff, drain pour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a tall, fine, pillowy head. Dry aroma of dark fruits, light caramel, and a slightly sour tang. Inviting and original. There is also something almost tropical in the nose! Tangy, fruity flavor with caramel and chocolate, blueberry. Rather sour, verging slightly on an old bruin. Dry, clean and very tasty. Love it.

29th September 2008. Cloudy brown beer. Sweet start - brief sour malt and then a wheaty spicyness and a dry finish. Nicely joined up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy brown color with a medium beige head. Nose is sour like Gueuze. Flavor is very acidic, and reminds not an abbey dubbel. The aftertaste is bitter and sugared. Alcohol is well hidden in this beer.

My bottle [330ml] shared with HogTownHarry courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a very murky dark copper with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma of sour caramel malt. Flavour of caramel malt, slightly sweet and a tad sour as well. Doesn’t taste like a 12% beer, the alcohol is reasonably well hidden. Thin bodied. Just O.K.
