bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Can in Brugge. Pours a dark clear amber with a frothy beige head. Light aromas of hop and spice. Somewhat sweet aroma. Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is malt and hop. Maybe some kandi. More malt liquor than lager in my view. Also seems a bit salty. Pass.

Canned 50cl. It pours an amber beer with a nice tanned head. The nose is of peaches, caramel, coconut, apples and bubblegum. A hint of cinnamon. The flavor is of malt, caramel and coconut. Alcoholic. Some fennel and cherry showing up. Caramel in the finish. Nicely peppery. A hint of cinnamon appearing. A good beer.
