Nice reddsh color, with a tinted with off white head. Fruity aroma, with notes of licorice and plums, but also treacle. Aroma gave an indication of a heavy beer, but flavor is light and fruity. Slight licorice or treacle note. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Nice amber color and lightly caramel/fruity aroma. Taste was a combination of plums, molasses, raisins, and malt. Pretty nice really. Worth splitting with a friend.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
High carbonation, but no head at all - dark ruby, good clarity - slighty yeasty aroma - flavor is very subtle, too subtle even - some plums and other dark fruits, vinous qualities - watery finish - soft and dry, slight tartness - pretty boring.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy reddish brown hue with good off-white head and lace. Aroma is very fruity with tones of raisin, peach, apple, and grape. Also detected some sweet spice, caramel and musty yeast esters. The initial taste was full of sweet malt and soft spice. Picked up a undertone of nutty bitterness towards the middle and the finish had a alcohol presence. Well rounded taste but seemed to lack the body to match. The mouthfeel is thin, fizzy and slightly papery. Alcohol level and the matching chest burn increased as beer warmed up. Overall drinkable, but not something I would buy again. Worth the one bottle though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice Belgian brown, although the aroma far outshines the flavor. Mixed fruit, raisin, and nutty nose, flavor is a close match. Small head quickly dissipates, and a nice refreshingly smooth palate.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
copper colored w/a very light beige lasting head. Strange herbal hoppy/medicinal malty aroma, caramel, and slightly fruity. Medicinal aroma disappears after it warms. Malty sweet & caramel, very well balanced from start to finish, but lightly bitter in the finish and aftertaste. Also lightly woody/earthy hop flavor in the aftertaste; very little fruity flavor. Light medium body, above average carbonation and warming alcohol, very pleasant. It seems I like Belgian Ambers since this is the first one I've had. I may have to have more of these.
