UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 330ml bottle in Hoegaarden glass.

Smells and tastes a bit like Delirium Nocturnum, malty, pretty bitter for a belgian ale.
Rich and fizzy.
Good but not fantastic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330ml). At Pub Italia, Ottawa. Poured murky medium brown with a thin light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, cloves, yeast, sour wine, some hops, oak resin, a bit of sour milk and chocolate on warming. Tastes of milk chocolate, spices (coriander), hop-bitterness, alcohol. Mouthfeel is thinnish creaminess. *Very* nice aroma, ultimately a littel disappointing after tasting.

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

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
