4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours hazy burgundy. Aroma of drued fruit. Complex flavour - caramel, raisins and even coffee. Dryish, but sweeter than their Prior, and also lighter in body. Still it's malty, and with a pleasant soft mouthfeel. The finish is bitter and hoppy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Red-brown colour. Yellow head. Malty and spicy aroma. The flavour is amazing by it's simpleness. Has a flavour between the best pilsener and a great abbey-beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one poured off of draft at Lucky Baldwins with a light goldeny blond color and thin foamy white head. The aroma was spicey enough to singe my nose hairs. It reeked of alcohol, oranges, yeast, and heavy spices. The taste begins with a lemony orange citrusness with heavy emphasis on the bittering and souring ending. This reminded me of sucking on an orange with yeast spices on it. Medium carbonation, but nothing rather spectacular. The citric acids and spices clash and sort of killed this one for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Cherry and cinnamon aroma, compareble to Kapittel prior, only less prominent. Sweet taste with tropical fruit, cherry and cinnamon. A bit thin. Assertive beer, more a Flemish brown than a abbey ale. Re-rate from tap: cafe Morshuis Albergen. Light and fairly thin, also light-colored, almost amber. Lovely buttery flavor with milk chocolate and caramel. Goes down easy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A light brown beer with no head. The aroma is an OK fruity ale aroma. But the flavor is much more powerful, with a nice sweetness of a great maltblend and with only a slight bitterness. A really good beer - next time I don’t want to share it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild vanilla in the aroma. Tastes a bit too malty. Like a strong hvidtøl.
