Light amber colour, thick head. Quite a lot of sediment floating around in the body of the glass. Sweet, sugary, fruity aroma with a little hop coming through too. Great malty flavourat first, a little sweet. Finish is dry, hoppy and refreshing.

Orange golden color with thick white head. Malt, grass, pepper and cinamon in aroma. Even gently egg-nog if you snuff the bottleneck! Pepper, citruses and varierty of bitter hops plus chocolate and cardamon in flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Hints of fresh citruses and a decent acidity on palate. In general well balanced, refreshing ale. B@H

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle Clear/sparkling amber body. Off-white rocky head. Interesting aroma of oranges, peach, Charentais melon, ... Moderately bitter initial flavour, moderately bitter, lightly sweet finish. Quite dry (alcoholically) mouthfeel which is a bit annoying. The little bit of sweetness in the finish tries to battle against the bitterness and drieness, but doesn’t have any chance at all. Not very complex, the balance is quite ok, but perhaps a little bit too much on this alcoholically bitterness. Ok.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 4/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 17/I/15 (2013-688)

Pretty cloudy amber beige beer, irregular off-white dense head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, ripe sweet fruits, pineapple, honey, bit sugary, some caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, toast, citrus, bit dusty, quite some alcohol, fruity. Aftertaste: dry and bitter hops, citrus, some alcohol, toasted malts, bit of honey, almonds, alcohol is pretty noticeable, but still it’s a very nice beer. I love the fruitiness in this one!

Taste is caramel, thick BE yeast, touch apricot, honey, dried fruits, orange peel & orange zest. Little carb, honey body. Not bad at all.
