Hazy amber coloured, some yeast. Average off white head. Sweet yeasty aroma, some maltyness, dry fruits. Smouth taste, some biterness. Finish is rather flat and short, lillte astringent, some sweet touches. Easy drinkable.

Dark cloudy amber colour. Tan long lasting head. Lots of yeast in the aroma with some maltiness aswell. Flavor is malty with some hints of hops and some bitterness in the aftertaste. This one is pretty good.

Pours a dark copper with a thick, frothy off-white head. Sweet grainy Belgian malty aroma has some caramel and yeasty notes. Starts with a dry full malty palate, some bready, semi-sweet malt and a dry yeasty finish. Fairly well-balanced, but could use a touch more sweetness.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 Brought to the states by a friend of mine. 33cl bottle poured into Belgian style chalis. Huge malty Belgian aroma wafting from glass. Beautiful dark amber color, slight haze. Poured nice head, big bubbles. Wonderful flavor, malt, dark fruit, sweet caramel, no hops (as expected). Very nice beer. What a treat! Wish I could get it here.

Light brown / red colour, moderate white head lasting a very long time. Very strong coriander aromas, orange, malt. But the flipside of the coin is a lack of complexity. Taste fades out pretty quickly, which is a little disappointment. Not bitter at all.
Definitely a "Christmas beer", I drink it along strong meet (deer,...) or eventually goose.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at home.
Redbrown with a large and long lasting head. Aroma heavy malty (brown sugar, fruit, coriander, orange) and light hoppy. Flavor heavy sweet. Body medium to full, creamy, soft carbonated. The alcohol is certainly felt (a bit vinous in the finish?).

Poured a dark amber and rather hazy...big fluffy brown head. Sweet malt nose and the a nice spicy coriander edge. Taste was also very full of sweet malts with fruity notes like orange, peach, apricot...sweeter than I was used to but it was good. Finished on the dry side with a hint of spice. Thin on the mouthfeel. I liked it...it was the one that started my quest for better Belgian ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown muddy body topped with a fair beige creamy head. Very special malty/hoppy aroma with fruity and sour notes. Taste perfectly hides the alcohol. It carries some fruity, yeasty, and spicy flavors, and ends with a decent warming bittersweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
30cl bottle. pours a nice red-tea color with a creamy off white head,, whichs last a while. the aroma is of dark fruit, with some malt and spice and reminds me alot of some trappists. The flavor is sweet and unlike the good beers, simple. The alcohol is present at the end, and it finishes dry with a strong hint of grape. Thin body and carbonation make it feel a bit like soda. Fruity to match its name, its a good beer, but considering all the great belgians out there, it falls short.
