3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy red-brown with a giant, light tan, frothy head. Banana, peaches, cherries, plums and some subtle spices (coriander?). Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, chalky texture, lively carbonation. Drying and astringent. Nothing standout in the flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty tough to find in America, so imagine my suprise when I saw a single bottle of this in the grocery case in a small supermarket in Montezuma, Costa Rica. Picked it up for 740 colones, or about $1.50 U.S. Pours a reddish brown, cloudy amber body. Head is honey-cream, thick, and long lasting. Smells of ripe red fruits, banana esters and belgian spices. Decent tasting beer, sweet/bitter burnt sugars come through, on top of fruits. Some doughiness/yeast in the finish. Spices dry a little too. Solid belgian

Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful dark brown/red colour with a nice beige head. Aroma isn’t as strong as i expected. Notes of fruit and spices. Good flavour although a little bitter at the beggining. In my opinion, this beer is a lot better when it gets warmer. Good but not exceptional.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Cloudy ruddy-brown beer with a thick creamy white head. Beautiful sweet dark malts, orange, cherry, berry, citrus as well as plums/prunes and a shot of coriander make this a very complex brew. Flavour is sweet and spicy with loads of plum, cherry, apple and yeast. Nice wheatiness underneath it all. Finish is a little bit tinny, but with so much that is right in here, it’s easy to overlook.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2006 Cloudy true brown, with a large initial head that returns to a respectable size at equilibrium. Malty and fruity aroma, but I can’t exactly put my finger on the fruit origins. Slight notes of coffee. Flavour is pretty good, which a bit of bitterness and reasonably sweet. Only a medium body in the mouth. Not bad, but there’s a lot of room in which it can be bettered! Re-rate: The fruit I could discern as rhubarb (I think). The flavour seemed quite well balanced, and although it is only medium bodied, it was strong enough to make it an enjoyable beer. Bump the Flavour by 1 and the overall by 1.
