2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Ruby colour, off white head, very cloudy with yeast particles floating around (at least if you pour the bottle as sloppily as I did...) Fruity, but clean with hard mouthfeel, Some grassy hop bitterness. I don't get much out of it...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark red-brown with thick bubbly head and fruity, nutty aromas. Lively and complex fruit notes. Red berries predominate with only minimal sweetness. The strength is well disguised, even for a Belgian ale. The finish is warming, leaving a chocolatey, fruity aftertaste. A complex and fruity beer, similar to a dubbel, but not exactly.

Cloudy amber color, big head. Deep malt aroma, Madeira touch. Good body structure, some malt. Even 2 years after the expiry date it's still quite good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Way overated. Veer with an orange crush flavour. Amber brown clour. Thick rich light frothy cream coloured head. Malt and spices in the nose. Sweet orange flavoured beer with licorice notes. Some malt in the background. The orange really predoinates in this beer, almost to the point of giving a orange soda character.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy brown beer with a medium head. Spicy nose with a lot of character. Hide the alcohol very well. I was expecting a very industrial beer but it seems this may be an exception. Very suprised and pleased by this beer. Adding "fruit" in the name might be misleading since this is more of a belgin strong ale than a fruit beer à la leifman...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown; brownish, thick dense head. Nose of candi-syrup, coriandre, some dark malts. Sweet and roasted malts in the taste. Slightly perfumey - I'm thinking of chestnut flour. Thick mouthfeel. A bit soupy. An industrial brown. OK, not very refined.
