Bottle. Dark brown cloudy body with ruby glints and a lasting beige foamy head. Pleasant malty/hoppy aroma with spicy, herbal and fruity notes. Robust taste that carries sharp plummy and vineous hints. Ends with a long and warming bittersweet finish. Very nice!

330 ml bottle. Pour an unclear brown liquid. Apple aroma. No head at all. Clean taste. Malty taste. Really nice beer. Love that one.

Bottled. Dark, almost red beer with lots of small floaties and a small to none beige head. Sweetish aroma with spices and dried fruits. Malty and sweet flavor with dried fruits, hops and spicyness. Mild finish with sweetness, dryness and bitterness. (060407)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy, ruby ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The nose is musty and sweet with notes of caramel, sweat and honey. Sticky-sweet flavor with tons of caramel and dark raisins. Full-bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and then, out of nowhere, lightly bitter.

Beautiful brown body with a medium white head. Sour apple, malt, hops and other fruits dominate the aroma. Mollasses and malts are evident in the taste. There is a somewhat metallic tang in the ending... not sure if that was just my bottle or inherent in the beer.

(Bottled. 03/2006) Thin, tan, unlasting head. Aromas of balsalmic vinegar. Clear. Dark ambered color. Up-front bitterness followed by rich, candi sugar flavors. Medium-bodied fit the beer quite nicely. Moderate carbonation. A tasty brew.

this was a good brew. good body, taste, not much of an aroma. Taste was a stong ale taste, with a bit of fruit perhaps.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red-brown with a large beige head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Quite a lot in the taste: liquorice, dark fruits, caramel sweetness and a sharp, salty bitter finish. I can’t really say why it didn’t work for me. Perhaps beacause it’s a Monday.

My favorite so far of Van Eecke, nice Dark fruits, very clean on the palate, herby, not overly sweet, good brew.
