Tan with a nice head. Estery aroma with a slight yeasty funk. Bananas with lactic sourness and brett funk in back. Very nice undertones. Quite malty. Creamy. Maybe some oak. Nice beer.

I have never before had a brew that was aged in a cave, thats kinda cool. Lake bottom sludge brown, with a head that looks like that foamy crap that flows in parts of a lake. Tastes somewhat like trail mix and maybe even a nice piece of 7 grain toast.

A orange-brown color with a nice tan head. A little metallic in the aroma with some alcohol. Some citrus and fruit in the flavor. Maybe some banana peel. For sure some oak flavors.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 Bottled. Dark, brown colour. Nice white head. The aroma reminds me of some kind of fruit, but I can’t remember which one. A sweet aroma, one I never perceived before. This is also one of the few beers which when you drink it, you always perceive the aroma again. (Like Girardin) Yeasty, caramel flavour. Sticky and sweet in the aftertaste. An extra-ordinary beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2003 This is a very particular beer and probably the one with the strangest fruity flavour I've ever tried. Brown colour, good head, quite creamy. Apple and banana in the aroma. The flavour is very fruity, too much sweet. Strong traces of banana and kiwi in the aftertaste. Tasty, but unbalanced.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2003 Tastes rather like a Flanders Red - lots of blood and guts. High carbonation eventually dies down to a pleasant, though not outstanding brew. I had mine too young, and it tasted a little unbalanced. [3.1]
Re-rate. Drunk at the Ramsgate Brewery. Malty sweet dark beer, Belgian in character. Very pleasant without being complex. Clove, butter, spiced bread tones.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2004 Smells and tastes like a fruit cake with about the same amount of complex flavors: nutmeg, cinnamon and raisins atop a this malty body. Heavy texture and a big taste. This has a nice warming effect. RERATE: Gave more points to the nose and overall
