(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy, amber golden with a dense, creamy, off-white head. Intense - and very Belgian - aroma of yeast, fruit and phenols. Quite full-bodied with a soft mouthfeel, plenty of yeast, fruit and phenols, but all in a good way. Dry, lightly bitter finish. An excellent Christmas beer. 180108

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle from Artisanales Bières Belges, Crissier, Switzerland
As soon as opened the bottle starts gushing quickly; only half of the bottle contant reaches the glass, with a cloudy dark amber color. Medium intensity for the caramel aroma, while the caramel flavor is stronger; there is enough sweetness to make a round body, some candi sugar, too much carbonation, and a delicate spicy touch. The final has some light chocolate too. Quite good.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2008 Total Score: 3.3
Nice red-amber color; big head. The malty aroma has a fruity touch. The flavor is basically caramel, a dark and quite bitter quality. Ordinary.
