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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Bar Volo. Pours a cloudy bubbly dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma of sour fruit, spices, malt and metal. Flavour of sweet malt and yeast is overly carbonated, the alcohol is too present and just doesn’t taste very good. A piss-poor Belgian Ale in my opinion.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Muddy brown colour with thick beige lasting head. Yeasty and nutty aroma. Could do with some more complexity. Some choc/coffee/dark fruit mix. Some vinuousness. Bit thin. Hop on end with more choc/sweet dark fruit. OK

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a fair amount of brown sugar. Flavor has a fruity beginning that mid way through starts to dry out. Semi-dry slightly bitter finish. Nice warming sensation. Pretty tasty.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Delicious aroma, smelling of spice and orange, with hops also present. Pours an orange-brown colour with a suspension of yeast sediment when pouring from the bottom of the bottle. The flavour is complex - fruity and spicy with a distinct maltiness. The palate is smooth with a restrained bitterness but distinct hit of alcohol at the finish. Recommended.
