3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky orange brown body with a foamy light tan head. The aroma is yeast and some spice, cloves and citrus. Flavor is straight forward sweet sugary belgian strong. The yeast profile is rather strong and detracts a bit. Towards the end some hop bitterness shows up. Body is mediium and fairly carbonated. Not bad, not great.

Nice dark orange colour, lasting foam, a bit bitter at first, but second and third tasting bring about interesting flavours and aromas. Not the greatest beer I’ve triaed, but definitely worth trying.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(33 cl bottle, bought in Denmark). Cloudy brown with floaties, enormous thick creamy head. Lovely complex aroma of cherries, figs, prunes, spices, oak and sandalwood. Flavour is not quite as complex - malty, some fruit and spices, rather alcoholic, bitter finish. I wish the aftertaste had been as good as the aroma. A beer well above average, but not as good as I expected.
