Bottle. Pours a murky light brown with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet with lots of sweet caramel malt and yeast. Flavor of sweet fruits (fig, apple, pear) and a nice malt backbone with spices in the finish. Pretty nice, solid BSA.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 2007: Brown, dumpy 33cl bottle.
Poured into my Brugse Straffe hendrik chalise glass.
Very livelly, came out the bottle before I could pour it, bringing all the sediment from the bottom with it. My glass was therefore full of bits and a cloudy dull, dish water brown coloured liquid. This dish water had no head, not even some grotty scum on top. Not a good start.
The smell was weak, almost aromaless, some hop esters maybe, malt smells too.
I liked the taste, sharp, sour yet also a sweetness to it. Complexed in every way, but enjoyable too.
Once I got over the non-aroma and no head, cloudy bits and dull colouring, I really thought this was OK. I will allow the bottle to sit for a couple of days before opening next time, or maybe let the beer age a while.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 11.2oz ($3): Pours an amber color with an off-white looking head. Aroma is fruity, with a touch of yeast and a little nasty boozy note, which is fortunately not replicated in the taste. At first, when I was trying this beer I was disappointed and reassured in the belief that Brune was far and by my favorite from this brewery, but as it warmed it started getting better and better, with well-balanced flavors coming to the fore. Kind of sweet, but with nice yeasty notes. Plenty of fruits all around. Another under-rated beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Trüber Bernstein mit hefig-würzigem Aroma. Im Geschmack typisch dunkelmalzige Aromen bis hin zu etwas Röstmalz. Der relativ lange Abgang hat allerdings eine merkwürdige Minznote. Nett, aber nicht herausragend.
