Dark brown with a red hue and a moderate head. The beer has no carbonation and is sour like sour milk. The sweetness is OK and all the rest of the notes drown in the sour milk notes. The beer was bought just before Christmas and I "enjoyed" it during Christmas 2004. I really have had bad luck in buying beers from Herslev :(

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red brown beer, cloudy with a nice brown head. Sweet aroma, some chocolate with hints of anise, licorice, raisins and coreander. Flavor is less sweet than expected, citrus notes more dominant here, more licorice and coriander. full body, short dry finish. By far the best Herslev i have tried, and one of the better danish attempts on making a belgium style beer. Not bad at all!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Wonderful smell of licorice (from the added star aniseed) and fruit (from the Belgian ale yeast). Very dark - although not black - beer, unfiltered with a dense, brown head. Fullbodied, extremely spicy, but not too heavy. Loads of malts (six different), one of them pretty hard roasted. In spite of the sweet smell, the flavour is far from sweet. Very interesting and very unusual.
