3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into a narrow high glass to drink. The beer had a light brown/dark amber color with a huge, foamy, dark off-white head that had great retention, and good lacing and cling. The aroma featured notes of caramel and sugary malt, along with floral and earthy hops, and lighter touches of lemon and straw. Its taste was a blend of sweet fruit and caramel notes paired with some light earthy and grainy bitterness. Its body was lively and well-carbonated with a thinner, drier body and a fairly-full mouthfeel. Thank you Tom for this nice beer surprise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red copper body with huge beige head. Caramel malts, a very pleasant fruit cake malt base, fruity hop, original and we’ll balanced. Pleasant Belgian medium mouthful, fruity yet clean yeast, professional but with a nice fruity and malt character. A drinkable and not cloying Belgian amber. Looks great, good taste too. (75cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber colour, well actually more brownish, with a very dense creamy head, slightly beige. Smell is sweet, malty, fruity, but with alcohol hints. Taste is quite sweet too, but well balanced, caramel, hazelnut, with some alcohol burn.
A good beer, yes.

Tasty amber beer, that is a bit more hoppy and bitter than its stylemates. I liked it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from some beer store in Antwerp. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is dry malt, light fruit and Belgian yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with an alcoholic liqourice malt palate. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. The alcohol is starting to dominate this beer and there are not enough other dominant flavours to make it too interesting.
