33cl bottle, somewhere in time.
In short: fruity belgian ale.
Classic Carolus revisited, this time with some caramalts, giving some caramel aromas and flavours, still alcohol noticeable, quite fruity. Nothing to complain, nothing to remark, just as you expected.

Not bad but doesn’t come close to some of the other beers these guys carry. A little honey sweetness and syrupy sense here. Pours hazy maroon with puffy head and good lacing. Some booze and a little rust. Sweet finish. Bottle.

From bottle. Pours a amber-brown with a nice head, that stays for a while. Smells sweet like a dark honey. Nice sweet taste with aroma’s of caramel, fruits, yeast and chestnuts. Long batteries aftertaste. Very tasty and different beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lighty hazy amber topped by a generous white head showing great retention and lacing properties. Seems to hold high carbonation. The nose is sweet malts, some dark fruits and very expressive yeasts. The taste follows the path traced by the nose with the sweet malts, dark fruits and fruity yeasts blending through a medium body feel. The bitterness is not overwhelming but the carbonation is too vivid and tunes down the brew. Once cleared though, the finish is long, warm and enjoyable. Cheers!
