Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dull mahogany beer with brown hues at the bottom of my glass. Medium white head. Poor persistence. Fruity aroma (quince), spices, honey, caramel. Spicy sweetness balanced by some refreshing bitterness. Medium body and texture. Good carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with a warming note. Overall, I liked this beer : great aroma !

Bit like the Kapittel dubbel, but less full and therefore also a bit less tasty.
