3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
lovely smell, very "brown" smelling with all things sweet, malty and earthy. plenty of caramel. taste is very sweet, simple round malt and caramel - nothing exciting at first, then you gradually notice a faint rodenbachy musky redskins flavour. also there is a bit of minty, peppery hop presence, just enough to dry it up in the finish but not enough to be actually bitter. a well made beer i say, not pretentious but original enough. reminded me of tongerlo brune which also has that combination of caramel sweetness and a hint of brett.

Very sweet, malty and fruity (strawberries) aroma. Nice and strong. Cloudy, brown coloured with an initially large rocky head, vanishes completely. Taste is sweet, wood, malty and fruity. Moore bitter in the end. Palate is sharp. Quite good beer.

I’m not as enthousiastic as jbrus, but it is a decent beer. Caramelaroma with some citrus. Medium bodied. Yeasty, caramel, just a bit citric. Hints of oak. Sweetish, hoppy aftertaste.

What a surprise this beer was! Normally new Dutch breweries make not very interesting Belgian Ales. But this one is quite different. Complex aroma that seemes a little smoked. Brown/amber color, off-white frothy/creamy head, good lace. Light sweet, smoot, nutty, caramel, bit smoked. Long sweet finish.
