3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In a chilled mug: poured a beautiful, dark copper with a very thick, lingering head and a ton of lacing. Somewhat hazy when held to the light. Aroma is sweet corn and alcohol, drowning out a few other hints of fruit and brown sugar. Very very sweet. Caramel is certainly there, but is beaten into submission by the alcohol content and the very sweet aftertaste. Slight bitter twinge to the finish, but negligible. I’ve had Belgians with higher alcohol that managed a much better balance than this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear deep amber colour with a frothy beige lasting head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, dried fruits like sultanines and raisins with candy sugar notes and roast malts with some barnyard elements. Smoothly carbonated, slick texture and full bodied. Dried sugared fruit sweetness builds the core developing interesting juicy herbal light spice impressions. Lasting sweet finish.

Lots of foam, which is coarse, thick and persistent. Light malt flavor and touch of hazelnut flavoring. Nice big volume. Slightly yeasty, which one often encounters in Belgian brew. The flavor is nutty, but also reveals little plum and a fruity sweetness that lasts a hoppy bitterness with semi-dry to dry finish. In the aftertaste there is also given room for a little seasoning. It does not differ significantly from the pack of Belgian amber ales, but precisely its slightly recessed shape makes it a worthy favorite to me.
