Deep copper/red color and fluffy head with yeasty and fruity aroma. Lots of spices, fruits and yeast in the taste, but they ain't interplaying ideally.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, at Bierodrome, London.
Mahogany colour with a lacy white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Strawberry aroma and tannins, mainly. The thin body and short palate hold back this beers score for me.

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.
